I guess it's all a matter of personal taste.
But I recommend trying the V-Pick small pointed for speed and accuracy.
I've been using them exclusively for the last 6 months and can't go back to anything else.

OK - I'm going to try the jazz III's for my electric. As for V-picks, I only notice a difference in tone when I use it on my acoustic - it's actually a big tone difference. Anyone hear a tone difference on ELECTRIC (V-picks vs. normal picks)?


I hear a huge difference between medium rounded V-Pick and standard Tortex .60 and .88. The V-Pick is way more rich and mellow, but then I like that kind of sound.

The Diamond V-Pick sounds even better to my ear, but $10 each. OUCH!

I agree, it is definitely a matter of personal taste. I also like a V-pick, the screamer, it feels very nice, but I don't like the material it is made of, it wears out and it takes away some of my attack... I used it for some time, actually I am still using it when I record leads and solos, but for my rhythm guitars nothing even comes close to my stone pick cool.gif Actually in the moment I am thinking about getting a stone pick custom made in the shape of a screamer, might be the ultimate pick for me biggrin.gif
