  • V picks?

    Anybody tried them? I know they are pricey. Ordered a couple just to try out.

    I think I have? Honestly, I've bought so many picks, it's hard to keep up. I can't remember if I tried these or Gravity... or both?

    Probably both.

      Yes, I have several, er....many. My fav is the Red Rocker, a 1.5mm 351 shape. I like the grip...I've never dropped one.

      For acoustic guitar, I like the 1980/Ed King and the Stealth. They are very different sounding.

      Tradition is good, in Lite, Standard and the 3.0mm. Dimension and Snake are very good if you want to try a thicker pick. I tend to like the pointed ones better for a crisper high end and attack. Spirit is another one I like.

      Don't like the Large and Freakishly Large sizes...too big. Also did not care for Gladiator, Eclipse, Medium Round, and Bullseye.

      Like I said, I like the grippiness, and they wear well, and sound good.

      When you've had budget guitars for a number of years, you may find that your old instrument is holding you back. A quality guitar can inspire you to write great songs, improve your understanding of the Gdim chord while in the Lydian Mode, cure the heartbreak of cystic acne--and help you find true love in the process.

        If you think V Picks are expensive, you should look into Blue Chip

          I tried them a few years back, and thought they were OK. Then, more recently, Iíd been playing a lot of bass and found I was getting thumb pain from using a small pick. So I did some research, ordered a few larger (and much larger) picks, and ended up using the VPicks Psycho for bass - it does everything I want it to,

          About a month or two later, I was playing guitar in the studio just noodling and didnít have one of my regular picks to hand, the Psycho was in my back pocket, so I tried it on the guitar and TOTALLY surprised myself with how easy it was to play with such a LARGE pick.

          I took a spin through their catalogue, and ended up with a small handful of smaller, but still LARGE, picks. The ones I have are Snake, Medium and Screamer - of which I use the Medium and Snake most often.

          Took a little adjustment, but the amount of relaxation in my picking hand is worth it!

            I like the ultra lite tradition. Others are all too clicky for me

              I have a single V picks fusion and have had it for a year and it's barely worn and I never drop it and haven't lost it! A bright, strong attack and a comfortable shape not unlike a jazz III. I don't use it all the time, some things just sound right with a good old fender medium pick, but certainly it has a real strong cutting tone that I like when playing clean.
