Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band Picks
Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band Picks
In celebration of the iconic Beatles album Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band and its 50th Anniversary, D'addario are releasing a limited run of guitar picks and guitar straps. Often cited as one of the most significant albums of the last century, Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Heart Club Band has been adored by both fans and critics throughout the years, garnering praise for its musical and artistic enterprise.

Untouchable in terms of its influence and impact upon much of today's music, the album was even listed as the Number 1 album on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the "500 Greatest Albums of All Time." Praised for transcending musical barriers and embracing a vibrant and exploratory nature, Sgt. Pepper blazed the trail for many musicians to come, inspiring many of today's most forward-thinking artists and musicians.

In addition to its lasting musical impression, the imagery and artwork associated with the album have also proved to be one of the band's crowning glories. Through a combination of psychedelic colouring and interesting cardboard cut-outs, the Beatles had singlehandedly created one of the contemporary culture's most recognisable album covers. Building upon the visual striking artwork of Sgt. Pepper, D'Addario's new line of accessories will pay homage to the striking graphics featured on the album's cover. The assortment itself will consist of a limited edition 10-pack of guitar packs available in either Thin (.50mm) Medium(.70mm), or Heavy (1.00mm) gauges, and two guitar straps in either printed polyester or vinyl materials.
