Re: Dava Picks
I thought the picks were pretty neat, pretty innovative, but a bit over done. I don't see the point of a having a multi-gauge pick in one. Your usually only playing with the very tip of the pick anyway. They also wear out pretty fast.
Pros: Sharp Tip, Rubber Grip
Con's: Wear out fairly quick, cost almost $1.00 each, wasn't buying the multi-gauge concept.
Verdict: The only redeeming feature in my opinion was the sharp tip and the rubber grip; however, Dunlop makes Jazz III XL's that are roughly the same size as the Dava picks and they have a decent enough grip. Recently, dunlop also released an Ultex sharp version that achieves the same thing with a better tone than both the dava and the Jazz pick. There are a ton of other guitar picks on the market with sharp tips and a much cheaper price tag. I think they are worth trying out, but nothing to write home about IMO.
