Re: Dava Picks

Exactly. It's hard for me to go back to regular tortex or celluloid. I guess most people would doubt you if you say that your pick makes you faster and more accurate, but these do make you faster!

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.

Re: Dava Picks

Tried these picks a long time ago, i never really liked them. To me they were just another plectrum gimmick and not a great one either.

Have you ever used V picks ?

Re: Dava Picks

They have a new nickle ended pick (metal tipped). I really like this one. Not sure how fast that would wear, but considering how much I play and how much I like to play, and how much I have spent on equipment over the years, I don't mind dishing out $2 for a pick I like to use and tends to stay between the fingers even when sweating.

I don't know about the pick wear but it might shorten the life of your strings

Re: Dava Picks

I usually change them every month or so anyway. Speaking of strings, I like the Elixir strings (very bright and clean)

Yeah they rock. I use them on acoustic and they last for like 100,000,000 years. And I seldom exaggerate.
