    Thumbs up V-Picks

    I know, I know...I've already written about picks in the product review section.

    Truth be known, I'm continually and incessantly searching for that evasive "perfect tone" like many of you are. I'm always trying new stuff, going to guitar shows, and jams looking to steal ideas from wherever I can. Anyway, I ran across a pick that I couldn't believe. The guys in the Paul Reed Smith forum (Birds and Moons) are going nuts over it. I hear Robben Ford even has some. Bands in England and Germany are using them with great results. It's called the V-Pick, and you've got to try one. Read about it:

    Has anyone else out there tried them? What do you think? Do you agree that they are the best pick out there?

    They seem nice, havent seen them in a store however. I probably will buy one when they are available here, but I doubt that they are as good as the ultimate pick : "Big Stubby 3.0"
    I can't say that I've given up on a flanger cause I've never liked the effect either. I also can't say the same about Tremolo. I hate them both equally. - Tone2TheBone 2009

    These V-Picks are really taking off. Giant threads of raves about them on the PRS and Axe House forums.

    They seem very interesting. I think I will order some.

    Jon, you have some of these then? What's better about them in your opinion?

    Hey, Robert!

    What's good about them? Just about everything...

    The tone is wonderful for most styles. I like the fact that they are sensitive to attack. They can be very mellow hybrid picking. The V-Pick will emulate the tone of your fingers and create a very even sound. When you dig in, they will get "angry" when you want them to. Some of the reviewers who are shredders don't seem to care for them as much, but then again some do. They "glide" across the strings very well for arpegiating, chording, or single lines, and actually have a kind of "sexy" feel as you play. And they are VERY COOL LOOKING.

    I have met Vinni, the Prez of V-Picks, and he is a straight up dude. A real nice guy and AWESOME git player. He has picks in the hands of Robben ford, Gabe Manzo of Malo, maybe Jorge Santana, WCR pickups guru Jim Wagner, etc. If you order some, tell him John Dean said to throw in an extra. Vinni would appreciate having you in his corner. I think you'll really dig them....Let me know. (I sound like a salesman, don't I. I'm just really stoked on them.)

    Check out vinni's sites.

    Take care,

    John

    I've tried Davas years ago, but I don't know about the Master Controls. In my opinion, there is really not another pick like the "V". If you like them at all you'll get to loving them real quick and probably be hooked.

    I didn't know Vinni was on this thread. I'll email him and have him chime in and answer questions. Check out the PRS birds and Moons site, PRS Gear Page site, and the Axe House Consortium site to check out what people are saying. Vinni has answered a lot of questions on those.

    Oh, and Robert, I finally got a Bad Monkey.....TIGHT!

    The Bad Mo is pretty sweet, huh, Jon?

    Maybe we should just play with a penny or a quarter (or a euro cent or canadian dime--dime that sucha!)
