Hey V-Pick users,

I am loving the V-Picks. Can't decide which one I like best. What are your favorites out there?

Medium rounded for me for sure, I even love the large rounded more for the tone but it's a bit to large for me personally. The screamer is a great one as well, but somehow I just play better with the medium rounded, so I am stuck with that one. The diamond is also awesome, although for me it's really to thick for a pick.

It's interesting how in the description of the screamer on the v picks website it says that it originally had a different name and was very unpopular until it's name was changed to `screamer` rolleyes.gif Maybe I'm just cynical.

My favourite is definitely the freakishly large rounded...huuuuge tone!


Surely this thread would be ten times better with a poll?????

I like my V picks, it made playing much easier, but I didn't like the chirp sound I got from them, so I'm just back to my normal boring picks.

Oh ya, The Screamer was cool for crazy pinch harmonics, but the Daimond played super smooth, and was my favorite.

After about a month of testing I think I like the medium rounded most. I can play the large and the small rounded too and feel comfortable with them but the medium is best in size for me. The medium pointed was ok aswell but I liked the tone of the rounded ones more. The diamond is too thick for me.

I like the screamer for most stuff but I find the small pointed equally good for most stuff. Medium rounded feels like I am playing with a bar of soap sometimes but I like it for slower strumming.

For some reason, they squeak pretty loudly on a particular high E run that I have been practicing - switched to my old stubbies and they did the same thing so I switched to nylons for that particular run.
