    V-Picks Large PointedPublished on 11/24/09 at 11:08
    (This content has been automatically translated from French)
    I bought one, the left in the photo.
    The pick and thick and well rounded, it yields a game very soft and not particularly aggressive rhythm. I recommend it for this use.
    You should know that the argument "lighting fast" (fast as lightning!) Is that the end is very rounded, it can easily slide from one string to another. If you like thick picks and use of one side opposite to the point here is you. For some here can help gain speed (but do not dream).

    Normal thickness 2.75 mm! Lite thickness 1.5 mm (~ Extra Heavy Fender, Dunlop ...).
    By the way: "secure grip (sticky fingers), this is totally bogus. (-1)

    Excellent production, very good product that seems inexhaustible, but very particular.

    I do not regret my purchase, but be honest, it was a stroke of GAS.
    I do it again, I promise.
    Right now they are $ 2.50 which is less than € 1.30, postage free, it is ultimately not that expensive.

    Note: Sometimes we make huge expenditures in search of the ITS. Before changing microphone, guitar amps, etc. hp. it is often more practical to try a lot of picks, the variety of sounds and sensations of the game is amazing.

    Amazing what a difference a pick can make...

    V-Picks Large PointedPublished on 03/27/11 at 17:18
    I've been using Dunlop Jazz 3 picks for as long as I can remember...a few years a ago I tried some V-picks and it pretty much was a game changer for me.
    I spent enough time on them to pretty much be lost when I have to use a different pick, or so I thought.
    Enter V-picks...the fact that the V-Pick is as glossy as it is makes it glide through the string much easier than other picks. More importantly, when you're using the thicker V-picks it will not only improve your control on the picked note but also your tone. The rigidness of the fatter pick coupled with the material doesn't have the pick "flop" before getting back to it's starting position and the bigger mass of course will make the not…

The rigidness of the fatter pick coupled with the material doesn't have the pick "flop" before getting back to it's starting position and the bigger mass of course will make the notes sound bigger.
    Now the V-picks have they're own attribute, such as the click to the pick attack some folks dislike. There is an easy fix...make sure your picking technique is up to snuff. Now that said I like a bit of chirp to the start of the note, listen to Billy Gibbons or Brian May both of those guys play with coins, May with a British six pence, the Reverend Willie G with a Mexican peso and both have a chirp. For me if I want the ideal no chirp attack I use my fingers and no pick anyways. But I digress.
    Fast forward through a few generations of V-picks and they have their Pearly Gate material which is less slippery and has less chirp. It almost has a turtle shell feel to it. Of course if it wasn't for Hornbill turtles being extinct and the only turtle shell material that isn't illegal has to be documented antique material, we would be using this. But for 5 bucks this about as close as it gets. Unless you want to start laying out 25 on up for the boutique offerings.
