Crown Point company one of largest ukulele pick makers in US

CROWN POINT, Ind. — A Crown Point man who started playing guitar and drums at a young age runs one of the country’s largest ukulele pick manufacturing businesses. John Mick founded Mick’s Picks in 2009 after he noticed that ukulele picks were difficult to obtain. Mick told the Times of Northwest Indiana that his company manufactured more than 600,000 picks, which were distributed to about 380 guitar and music stores across the country. Most are manufactured in a shop outside his Crown Point home. The picks are bagged for distribution by developmentally disabled workers at TradeWinds in Hobart. They’re then sold through nearly 230 Guitar Center stores, about 150 privately owned music stores and online across the world.
