I have always preferred a heavy pick 1.2 mm always find soft picks to be well soft smile.gif as far as picks go I don't personally know but the special ones ( Petrucci picks and the others I have seen) seem a bit like a gimmick to me! Am I wrong on that?


Not entirely biggrin.gif

The Petrucci pick has its advantages because of the beveled rims, the grip, the tip and the shape - in here I get 6 JP picks for about 3 dollars - which is a good price.

Yeah, compared to a jazzIII it sounds a little brighter. Size is between the jazzIII small and bigger one.

It has a nice "quality" feeling when you first hold it, which I like but I think I'll like it more when as the sides hitting the string melts a bit smile.gif

Getting further out on topic I like having a few picks around specially when playing clean sounds smile.gif its like the most affordable thing one can use to alter sound fast and easy smile.gif

BINGO!! smile.gif The reason I suggest 1.5 mm acetate or now Aluminum Picks (beta testing some for VonHotch) is for their complete lack of FLEX/BEND. When learning your picking techniqe, the pick bending can interfere with your precision. Eventually, once you have a better grasp of it, you may decide you prefer the tone of a soft pick or the feel.

Then again, I still prefer a thicker pick that won't bend. Bendy picks just feel less precise. This is also why I typically don't use ULTEX as it has inherent flex but that never stopped JOHN PETRUCCI smile.gif He uses ultex picks to great effect. Just goes to show it's a very individual thing and not everything works the same for everyone smile.gif
