V-Picks

Discussion in 'Accessories [BG] - NEW!' started by Killed_by_Death, Mar 28, 2018.


  1. These are deserving of their own thread IMHO.

    Back when Vinni Smith first started up I got lucky & won a raffle twice, to get free V-Picks.
    So, I've managed to try many of them, but the one I got recently is my #1 choice for bass guitar!

    mine is the original design, but I still can't figure out what the graphic is supposed to be:

    ah I think I see it now, the top of someone's head who happens to have glasses on... maybe...

    Love the Blue Traditional Lite. It’s my go to for bass. Has been for some time.
     
  3. My other fave, when I want that extra scrape, is made for mandolins:

    saga-1-768x919.


    I also just picked up a glow-in-the-dark Screamer:

    Screamer GLOW Guitar Pick - Guitar Picks by V-PICKS

    V-PICKS-Screamer-Glow-Guitar-Pick-768x919.

    No association with the product, other than just a happy customer. I'm lucky that our local music store carries them, so I pick up a new one every 3 or 4 months.
    I don't need them, though, because they last seemingly forever.


    Just gave one away last weekend, because it was just too small:

    Small Pointed Guitar Picks

    TBH it's not too small, it's just that I've gotten used to the big Screamer or the Dimension.
    The corners of the small pointed one fit inside a quarter...

    played a V pick for the first time the other day and was blown away. A Euro II. I'm not even really a pick guy but the V pick was different.

    I have to try those v-picks!

    I bought some big stubbies 1,2,&3mm for 6string and broke the tip off the 1mm really quickly so the others got put away somewhere.

    I’m using the 1.90 Clayton triangles for bass, and they are nice, but not perfect.

    I am an authorized Canadian dealer for V-Picks. Google my name. I hope I don't get in trouble for this.

    In the "related but unrelated" category, I use these for mandolin:

    I use the "Freakishly Large" (P & R) V-Pick.
    I also use the Screamer for acoustic guitars.
