How To Make – DIY Budget Felt Ukulele Plectrum / Pick

Video Posted on Updated on

So you’re fed up of buying felt ukulele plectrums and want a video showing you an easy way to make your own budget felt ukulele plectrum? You can buy the felt online here with free delivery, cut the felt to the ukulele plectrum shape and slice off the adhesive layer (as per the video), watch your fingers!

Top Tip – Be careful with what you are doing. I’m not sure I recommend the techniques used in this video. While I watched it, I expected the loss of a finger at any second! But the theory behind making your own Budget Felt Ukulele Plectrum is sound.

Skip to around minute 3 for the start of the tutorial as there is a significant amount of waffle beforehand.

Well here it is from Joe DiTrapani.
