V-Picks!


Hey guys, so here is a review on some V-picks I have collected. I've been using them for a year, and I love them!

What kind of picks do you guys like? do you like more expensive picks or cheaper ones?

Re: V-Picks!


I bought some V picks and I really like them too. I like the Tradition Lite (probably the only company that consider 1.5mm to be lite ;o) Although I got mostly the clear ones and they seem to disappear (harder to see if you drop them). The sapphire blue ones are nice and easier to see...

I prefer Gravity Picks to V-Picks, but they're the same general thing.

I've grown quite fond of the smaller Dunlop Tortex picks. They're the same size as the Jazz III, but they're 1.14mm thick.

I concur! Those are definitely my favorite too.

Re: V-Picks!


I haven't tried the V-Picks yet... I got a few packs of Dunlop Gator Grips in different sizes and I really like 1.5 mm's.

Re: V-Picks!


I have to try some of those smaller Tortex ones. I wasn't able to find my normal black Jazz IIIs in-store, so I went with the red thinking only the color was different...worst $5 mistake ever, they should know making slippery picks is a bad idea. I used to love the orange-blue Tortex, but after using the Jazz picks for so long, normal picks seem huge.

Re: V-Picks!


I just bought 2 V-picks, a Venom and a Chicken Picker. So far I like the Venom more than the Chicken Picker, but I'm not sure if it's really worth $5/pick. Ive spent the last 20 mins A/B'ing it against my regular Cool Pick and I dont really hear a difference but I feel one.

Re: V-Picks!


Personally I have pick add. I am forever changing picks and styles. I have gone through them all from a gross of tear drop jazz picks to M'nd picks of the 70's (polished agate), recently I was in a band that did a few songs that required very fast strumming so I toyed with turning my pick sideways ala Stevie Ray Vaughan. A few years ago I toyed with it but didn't like it. After doing it for these songs I found it very helpful in my playing. Now I use a medium plastic pick made for a local music store and I really like them. After awhile they start to mold slightly to your thumb. I have gone from thins to heavys back to mediums. A couple of years ago I got some nice Dugain acetate picks that last forever. http://www.dugainpicks.com/ But now I am on a new kick. I cut my own from that god awful plastic that no one can open that is on everything you buy! It's thin but doesn't break. It's a very, very fast pick! All I need to do now is find some thicker plastic, same type and I'll be good until the next thing comes along....

Re: V-Picks!


The first time a Dunlop Jazz III graced my hand, it was love. They've been my go-to picks ever since -- they truly do enhance my playing precision.

Re: V-Picks!


I am a devotee of the Jim Dunlop Jazz Tones, specifically the 205. Warm sound, totally solid thick little picks! Went through a massive 'pick quest' a few years back.. Tried everything including wood, buffalo horn, metals, plastics etc..
