Anybody here using V picks? What do you think? Personally, Vinnie Smith's foray into acrylic plectrums has been a Godsend for me. For years I've used what I thought was the ultimate pick for me... A Golden Gate 1.5mm mando pick....about the size of a quarter in a rounded triangle shape. Loved 'em. Fast forward to about a month ago. My basal joint (thumb base) arthritis had gotten to the point that it was becoming a real challenge to play sometimes. Some years back, I had ordered a set of pickups and the vendor threw in a medium round V Pick. (I had tried it once, thought "Ehh...OK" and tossed it back into the box of wayward picks) As it's pretty stout at 2.75mm and I thought it would be easier to grip, I dug it out. Wow, what a difference. A slight learning curve (maybe an hour) and I realized how much more fluid my playing was, in addition to my thumb feeling much, much better. With the added thickness and the slight tackiness of the acrylic, I could hold it with less tension....this even helped my other fingers stay looser and improved my hybrid picking. It has a different tone than the GG's....a bit sharper attack and a slight chirpiness, but nice strong mids. A total winner for me....I just ordered more. So, excuse my verbosity, please....but anyone else with a V Pick opinion?
