Lol, of course it is smooth, I didn't just grab any rock on the street, it is a "normal" pick, just made of stona, Achat as far as I know. And no, in the last 20 years this one didn't wear out a bit. I will take a pic later, so you can check it out.


How the heck have you not lost it?! I have tried a couple V-picks...but I keep going back to my .73mm Brain Picks.

I'm really into the lite and ultra lite V-picks.. medium pointed in lite are like Jazz III in size only bit thicker.. The ultra lites are really awesome.. I just think the thicker ones have unwanted sounds when you pick, theres a "scratch" sound if you don't pick the string in the exact right angle.. This dissapears with the slim ones..

But take my word, when you drop a ultra lite clear v-pick and the room is not perfectly lit i'ts REALLY hard to find .. The thicker ones have "facets" that shine back but the lites don't.

just a little interruption from me biggrin.gif

Oh I lost some over the years, back then I bought 3 of those picks, only one survived all the tours that we did, that's why I had some new ones made last years, I was really scared to lose my last one. And yup, it is for sure my pick of destiny smile.gif

Man, I had never heard of a stone pick, what I find most amazing though is the fact that Marcus has played with this pick for 20 years, I have been playing for around 16 years and I have gone through 500 picks at least.

hehe, I like that too, back then I spent about 20 DM (around 10 Euros) for that pick, and it was definitely worth it wink.gif
