VINNIE QUESTION! i was stareing at my Diamond and i was thinking how sick it would be in red! or a dark green! I know that colouring acrylic is possible sooo is there any way we could look into this? i would be willing to pay extra for a custom pick order if you could colour them for me smile.gif! just PM me if you think this is possible or not!

Got the picks I ordered a few days ago
I can see the Screamer being my main pick from now on. I play a bit slower with them because I'm used to the tiny Jazz IIIs but I find it so comfortable. The III's would always slide out of my hand but the screamer has this little groove that makes it so comfortable to use. I will definitely buy more of these.

I also bought a medium rounded and I don't really like it. It's a bit too rounded for me and doesn't work well for Thrash type music.

I also think they look great
I've had a few people ask me about them already

I don't think the normal V picks are for me, I love the grip, sound, and how they glide over the strings. I just can't get over the chirp/squeak sound . It's not as noticeable when I flatpick, but honestly flatpicking fast stuff feels very unnatural for me. I guess the way I play I tend to get that sound of the pick brushing the string(because I do like to angle the pick), I just don't find that chirp a desirable pick sound.

Are there any V picks that can be held at an angle, and not get the chirp? The Screamer seems to do it the least, while the diamond has a huge chirp sound. Do the lite V picks tend to chirp? I'm still interested because V picks rule in feel and sound(when it's not fast picking on the high strings).

I got my V-Picks today, and I have to chime in with everyone else... they are great. Sound great and feel great. I got the medium rounded and a diamond.

I got one of the slides also and the large slide really is very large, so unless you have super-fat fingers, don't get the large.

I just received my picks. For now, I have only been playing for a couple of hours with them, but I have to say that the Screamer is really amazing. I love the way it sounds, the way it feels and I can't explain why, but I get an incredible control and regularity in my attack of the strings. I also tried the shredders. Very sharp sound, I like it too. However, I find it pretty hard for now to play very fast licks or tremolo picking. I guess it requires additional training due to the sharpness of this pick. Still, I really like the way they sound and feel for string skipping / legato licks à la Paul Gilbert (final part of Scarified). Great picks overall, I think I'll stay with the Screamer for a long time!

I've started to use them as well, switching from jazz III, and as far as I concern, they give even greater control. smile.gif

I started using them a few months ago. There's a rumor they are going to pay me to go back to my Dunlop's. I do really enjoy them though. I use the "Tradition," though I bought a few different designs to look for the one I wanted to use.

I have played the Screamers, but that pick was not for me at all..
But I decided to order a bunch of other picks from them a few days ago, which looks like they'll fit my playing too a tee.
So hopefully I'll be happy when they arrive smile.gif

I'll let you know how it goes smile.gif

How durable are these picks?

4-5$ a pick seems kinda expensive.

Now, that's a good question!

Because Dunlop and others last for a few hours before they become rounded. When you pay them 0.5$ or 1$ it's OK. But at 4-5$ or even 10$ a pick, I hope they last for a bit more than a few hours.
