Re: Gravity picks
Here's my Review:
The pick (Razer XL 3.0mm) is a fantastic pick. In every way.
However, I find it has the same probably every conventionally shaped pic has. Top heavy with no weight to the picking end of the pick to help pull you though. So I'm unfortunately sticking with my Psycho Shredder.
I want to make this absolutely clear, aside from the shape and thickness I think the Gravity pick is superior to the V pick in every way:
1. Grip is vastly superior. Even after 4 hours of sweating in my tiny (2nd bedroom of a 2 bedroom apartment) music room with the band and all our gear on the grip was just as good. It literally stuck to my fingers despite the sweat. Unbelievable.
2. Colours. That's a huge deal to me. I know it's lame, but I use my fancy DR Neon Strings, I play flashy guitars (instead of black) I like showy straps blah blah blah. A pic that goes with this is icing on the cake.
3. Build Quality. Okay...they're pretty even here. But having even build quality with V-Picks is ****ing insane. Smooth yet sharp edges, clean even lines, etc etc. Much better than the Jazz IIIs I was using before jumping into the V-Picks.
4. Price. This is $5 pick that makes me want to switch from my $15 pick. I think that says a lot right there. The prices on these pick are fantastic for the quality.It has all the same tone benefits of other acrylic picks and the extra sustain and volume associated with picks with more mass. It's a fantastic pick and I'll be recommending them to everybody I know plus my students.
Basically if I could get the Psycho Shredder shape from Gravity Picks I'd be using them right now.
Objectively= Outstanding Pick!
Subjectively= It's great but not quite for me unfortunately!
