I’ve checked out most of the popular mandolin picks available today, and I must say, this pick will go toe-to-toe with any of them! I’ve experimented with many different thicknesses, sizes and shapes, and sent quite a few out to some great mandolin players for product testing as well. Most players preferred the V-Pick Tremolo over what they were currently using. These findings are what I’ve based our new design on. The result is a cast acrylic pick that is 1.0mm thick with just a tiny bit of flex.
They are available in rounded or pointed. Fast action, full tone, louder volume, very little pick noise and the wonderful V-Pick “grippage” we’re so fond of. They are all laser cut and etched, then hand ground, beveled and buffed on a grinder by human hands.
We recently got back from Nashville, and a lot of “Old Timers” tried these out for us. At one point, on Friday evening, every player on the Grand Old Opry stage was playing a V-Pick! That was a kick! They all reported back very favorably. It was said to us many times that our material was preferred over tortoise shell for both sound and playability. Their words, not mine!”
