I sued to do that--but it doesn't work for me.I actually like a thinner pick when strumming acoustic. You can get that paper-y Johnny Cash rhythm.
My number one all around pick is the Wegen triangle.
I mostly use the purple ones---and my dynamics & picking control & sound got so much better when I did.I spent years playing with a purple Tortex (1.14mm) because I thought thicker picks produced a better tone and gave me more control over the dynamics.
I use a TD 50 on the rare occasions when I use a pick, to me its the closest sound to using your fingernails. Pretty much zero pick click.Hey folks i'm joining this thread in hope’s of finding usefull hints or answer to some of my questions.
I’ve been experimenting with different brands, material and gauge of pick since a fews years now.
They really do affect the tone of your instrument. I play mostly electric guitar.
Boutique picks :
Been trying out expensive/boutique picks for some time now.
The Wegen M-100 really got my attention for quite some time now.
The BlueChip Myth Saga :
I've heard about Bluechip pick a few years ago but never made a move and never bought one. A 35$USD pick is hard to justify, since you can’t sell it if you don’t like it.
Anyway, I did buy a TD45 this week, i've paid roughtly 50$ to get it to my door in Montreal.
Impression about BC :
I’ve been using the pick for a fews hours comparing the pick to a bunch (Wegen, John Pearse, Prime Tone, Pro Plec, Read Bear,Tortex) of pick i got at the moment and BC pick really have Something unique on their own. The Feel, the tone, is special.
I would like to get your input about ROUND bevel Vs SPEED bevel.
What are the main difference in tone and feel are they noticable ?
I want to buy a 2nd BC in the near future i’m thinking of an all around pick like TP1R 60.
I'm asking because I beleive that with the right information and feedback I could save Big $$$ and find my perfect pick
If you guys can chime in and help me out I would greatly appreciate it.
