I've come across a bunch of cheap stainless steel picks made by Alice. I don't like their plastic picks but for the price, I'm inclined to try out these and see how it goes. I'm especially interested in how different it would sound compared to alu picks and I might end up gathering a bunch of picks and recording a comparison video.

Does anyone have any experience with these? I know there are claw-like tools for Acoustic guitar made of steel, so these can't be that bad, I hope. Reviews only say these are horrible with nylon strings smile.gif

not with these pick , but I have always found picks made out of harder materials than your strings, makes strings break more of the time

I've used metal picks and they are fun smile.gif Makes great CHUNKY on the low strings. A very big metallic sound.

I've been using Dunlop's alu pick for a few months and no issues with strings breaking, so I don't know on what it depends.

Steel shouldn't be much different than aluminum, so they should be fine. They will arrive in less than 2 months but I'm not in a hurry or anything.

Very similar in sound to my vonhotch picks. A bit of squeak depending on angle, but very solid sound during muting.
