Vinni, I have been playing guitar for over 35 years now and decided to order your starter pack after seeing a pick display brought out at a local music store. Thought it was all just hype. Guess what,  after receiving my V-Picks I  tried them and all I can say is this, hands down best picks I have ever tried!  I will never use anything else. Awesome product! I will spread the word.

Dave

Well… I have finally found MY pick! Seriously!  Thank you for an amazing product. I always knew tone and volume were affected by your pick, I just had no idea how much.

Eric E

Hey! I just received my ‘Ghost Rim’ picks! Thank you for the GREAT customer service. That’s why I will recommend and continue to buy from you. Period.

I must admit I was skeptical about this V-Pick. Man was I taken back with the smoothness. I was concerned that I wouldn’t have enough pick attack. Again I was wrong. I never thought that a pick could affect the way my guitar sounds. I mean I know that the pick affects the tone, but this pick is too much. Vinni, my hats off to you.

I am very old school. Those of you who know me know that I am also just old. I was skeptical about this so called V-Pick. I have been using the same type of pick for over 11 years, Dunlop. I gave the V-Pick a tryout, thinking sure another gimmick. Well, I was clearly wrong this time. Acoustically my LPGT sounded creamier and thicker. This can’t be from a pick!! The pick just seemed to glide across the strings like it wasn’t even there. Now I am figuring, this has to affect my pick attack, it’s too smooth. Wrong again! Vinni, my hats off to you Brother. Excellent. Love the V-pick. It’s all I’ve been using since I got them Friday

OK so I have been playing the V-pick extensively for the last few days. Here are my thoughts. At first sight of the picks I was very happy that the small size I ordered was virtually identical to my favourite pick the Dunlop Jazz III(in black of course). So I pick up the V-pick, strange feeling at first. It felt like a small but perfectly formed gem stone, it starts to feel sticky real fast which helps the grip situation. Upon first strike of string the pick reminded me of a Dunlop stubby in the way it bounces off the string, but because of the beautifully beveled edge it glides across the string in a way that the stubby wont. I quickly go back to my trusty Jazz III, feels weird. Kind of like the V-pick did at first. I then go back to the V-pick and I feel at home again. Very weird! Now my Jazz III is starting to feel alien to me. The thing I always liked about the Jazz III is the way it facilitates great, fast, downward alternate and sweep picking. But for me coming back up the strings was never as good as going down the strings. V-pick on the other hand glides across the strings downwards just as great as the Jazz but raking the string upwards is ten times better than the Jazz, this is a sweepers dream! Tone wise it creates a clear tone that sounds smooth at the same time, this pick makes me want to pick nearer the bridge and try different dynamics.

Hand-made guitar picks by Vinni Smith Here you go Vinni, posted today. You are welcome to use any of this on your site if you want, but I’m not a famous player (too bad, I should be!) Archie OK, I got small & med V-picks and am ready to share my thoughts. I am an advanced player of 30+ years, pretty much all styles. I will comment (>>>) on each claim made on Vinnie’s website. By the way, a nicer, fairer guy you will not find: “Richer tone from your instrument. Creamy high end, strong mids, a beefy bottom end and more volume” >>> No question that the very solid material glides nicely, does not give, and allows for a definite boosted mid and bottom. Electric: I did not notice a *marked* increase in volume, but the increased mids may be perceived as louder. Acoustic: Yes, I was surprised to find that my Guild D-40 actually sounded louder when strummed & picked with this pick. Amazing “Very smooth/fast action The V-Pick glides over the strings creating less friction” >>> No question this is true. It does not give at all and it’s a little like you might imagine playing with glass. (Think bottleneck on strings – it glides, almost zero friction) “Durability 3 corners deliver 3 times the life” >>> Absolutely bulletproof, very thick. “Very cool looking Smooth, Clear Acrylic” >>>Yup, it’s cool. “Very cool feeling Feels much like a highly polished stone” Yup, it feels cool. Very high quality material. “Easier to hold on to The V-Pick feels like it is holding on to you. After playing The V-Pick for a short time, you can relax your grip and the V-Pick will “stick” to your fingers.” >>>It does offer a somewhat sticky quality after a while. Pretty neat. “Reasonably priced The V-Pick costs much less than other boutique picks.” >>>Value is in the wallet of the beholder. I have never used ’boutique’ picks but own well over a hundred of all varieties and the V-Pick is among the very best.

I bought a set of three V-picks and really enjoyed them at home. I played a 5 hour gig last Saturday with one of my normal rigs and got many compliments on my tone from folks that usually say nothing about that. I noticed that my tone was fatter, but not indistinct…that I dug in a bit more without getting a harsh overtone like I was with my Gators. And when I choked up a bit on the pick to just kiss the strings, I noticed more speed and some very sweet pinch type harmonics, sorta like the old Min’d pick I used except not as “pingy”…more rounded…uh, its hard to explain. Oh, and they were easy to palm and whip out when switching from flatpicking to fingerpicking. And I never dropped em…

I have to say the only thing more awesome than these picks is the man who makes them. What a class act Vinni is. Just got my batch of 6 V-Picks yesterday. Pulled one out and was amazed by how natural it felt in my hand. Like many had said I was a little surprised by the thickness as I was used to medium gauge picks. However, once I started playing it was perfect. Perfect for picking. Perfect for strumming. Just fantastic all around. I grabbed my regular pick afterwards to get a sense of the difference and I have to say it was like going from a glass of single malt to a capfull of cough syrup. The quality and fullness were that obviously different. Now here’s where the Vinni part comes in. The one problem I noticed was that my medium sized picks felt too small for my hands (it’s not that I have big hands, I’m just used to a bigger pick). I emailed Vinni and he emailed me right back saying he’d send out a new batch of large picks right away. I said where should I send back the medium ones. He said keep ’em and share ’em with your buddies. If that’s not class and customer service I don’t what is. Well done Vinni. You are truly one of the greats.

Hi Vinni, Got the large picks today. They’re perfect. The exact size I needed. Thanks again for everything. You really have a killer product. Enjoy all your success.

Jamie

Vinni, your freakishly large picks are freaking awesome!! They just fly through the strings and sound phenomenal… You are the man!!! Thanks

Galo Rivera

Vinni, Once again you come slammin’ through with great customer service ! I’m finding that with the regular V-Picks I have a definite preference for the larges ! In that way even before I discovered your V-Pick, I’ve always been a large pick kinda guy ! ( ;-D ) Basically, I’m trying the mediums just for my own curiosity . . . . ( that’s why I only ordered a couple ) Besides, I’m still having so much fun with the original V-Picks that I’ve just about worn one of them out ! I’ve never thought of something that is typically considered so insignificant as “the pick” that could be so inspiring to play with. It’s very quickly becoming an integral part of my total “Guitar Rig” . . . . Always a pleasure to hear from you.

Tsk, tsk, tsk. You should be prosecuted for trying to infect me with pick-GAS heh. I’ll let you know what I think about the new ones. I recently started going to private lessons to learn some more advanced concepts on relating my playing to real music theory and he was curious about the clear pick I was using. He took a look at it, felt it and then called it crap heh. He’s an anti-gearhead. So I decided, since I don’t use my Large V-Pick and he has large hands and fingers, to leave the Large V-Pick there. When I came back to next week’s lesson, he asked to keep it heh. He wouldn’t admit that he dug it…he just wanted to try it out a little longer. Suuuuuuure. Heh, thanks for the extra samples!

Paul

Thanks for designing these picks. I love them. I can barely use regular picks anymore. They just feel wrong. I can get away with Dunlop Jazz III’s or stubby’s, put I’d rather not. These picks are the real deal my friend. Hopefully they’ll be around for a long time.

Here’s my review: After reading about the V-Pick I immediately ordered 3 medium sized picks. The first thing I noticed is that they are thicker then my usual picks ( Ultex .72) but thanks to the gliding feel they have when you stroke the strings they are actually a lot easier to play then any other picks I have tried so far. My sound is fuller and rounder and I definitely can rip those fast runs a lot easier with the V-PICK !! Thanks Vinni for such an awesome pick !!

Mita

Just got my picks yesterday, I really like them! I find I play MUCH more accurately. I don’t find them quieter at all. In fact I find them a bit louder than the Dunlap Tortex 1.14’s I usually use. Brighter too. Got to spend more time with them but I’m thinking so far they might be the ones… A great improvement for rapid strum passages ( and those flamenco runs I like to do.

Thank you so much! The V-Picks arrived yesterday, and I instantly fell in love with the feel and tone I was getting out of them. I’m a wannabe hybrid picker, like Brett Garsed, and these picks really suit well with that kind of style. I’m very anxious to gig and record with these to give them the full workout. But first impressions have been very good. I’m definitely going to purchase more. I’m sure I will lose these pretty quickly. All the picks you sent me feel great, I can’t decide on a favorite yet! Whenever I change regular picks I usually need some time to get used to them. But not with these. They feel instantly natural to my fingers. Thanks again for the extra pick and the uber fast service!

Carlo

Vinni, Just wanted to give a quick V-Pick update. After using a large V-pick for the last month and a half, I decided to pick up my old trusty 73 mm Dunlop large yellow pick and give ‘er a whirl. I played with it for a minute and came to this conclusion. It’s crap. Honestly Vinni, your pick is awesome. The honeymoon period is long gone and it still kicks. What a killer product.

HI Vinni, Just had to say I’ve had these picks for three days now and they are (as we say in England)the dogs bollocks, I did’nt think any thing would get me to put down the Jazz 3’s but these babys have! One satisfied customer.

Wayne

Hey Vinni, I still love them and have given a few away……..My only problem is that I can’t decide which size I like best! They’re all comfortable……….. I’ll be placing an order for a few more of your medium sizes shortly…. Thx again for a great pick!

Martin

My V-Picks arrived yesterday (Monday) I ordered them on Saturday! Even if I hated the picks (which I don’t) I would still be very satisfied with my purchase due to the great customer service. Thanks Vinni. I love these picks they are by far the best picks I’ve used in over 20+ years of playing guitar!! I let my boss try them out this morning he didn’t want to give them back kept trying to convince me he had lost them. You’ll be receiving an order from him shortly, and I’ll be buying more in the very near future. These picks are the real deal they are everything that is advertised and more. All I can say is Thanks Vinni!! You and your picks Rock.

Kurt McDonald

Hi Vinni, Thanks for the package of picks we got! I enjoyed the new picks, and will try them out in recording soon. I liked both the small rounded and the small pointed as well as the medium. The new gauge is definitely more comfortable for us. Ardeshir also wants to hear them recorded. Let us know if we owe you anything for them. I hope all is going well.

Jorge Strunz

I LOVE these picks! The feel while you are holding them is SO comfortable. The tone is really, REALLY nice and the ease with which you can speed pick(to the extent I can! ) is phenomenal. I’m SOLD! There’s no going back! I just put in another order!!!

Charles

I received my V-picks yesterday and have to say, I’ve found a new pick. They are very comfortable and the attack is very smooth. I got the small ones. Thanks Vinni, best of luck

David

The V-Pick kicks major butt. I love the tone of it. Adds some girth and clarity both to the struck note for my application, and not so drastic a tone change when hybrid picking. I highly recommend it.

Big Mike

I got mine yesterday (thanks, Mrs. V!). Ordered on Sunday so extremely quick service. Got a chance to try them out last night. The first thing I noticed was that the discussion of size really refers to the thickness. If you lay a regular fender pick on the large V-Pick, it is about the same in the other dimensions and the smaller V-Pick is only a bit wider than the Jazz III. Despite the pictures, I was expecting the V-Picks to be half the size of a playing card! I was very pleased that this was a misimpression. The thickness seems to relax your grip which can have a large positive effect on your playing. The feel of the V-Pick is very nice and it does not seem like it will slip out of position. OK, next to the playing. I decided to not turn the amp on to start. It felt a bit foreign at first, but manageable. The notes were very even similar to the way a compressor evens out picking dynamics. A little more concentration and the dynamics were back with nice articulation. Yes, a bit like fingers, but then it hit me that the V-Pick sounded a lot like the Jazz II (at least for me. I got one out and compared). A few minutes of picking and I decided to try chords. I was a bit nervous thinking that if I dug in with this unfamiliar, thick pick the strings would just rip away. But I hit a chord anyway. This is were I was very pleasantly surprised. The V-Pick glided over the strings and the individual notes were very articulate. I quickly became comfortable with strumming and then decided to try some muting. Again, I felt the V-Pick was excellent for this. Very nice for mutes which in turn led to a diversion of several minutes of playing funk. I plugged in and my impressions remained unchanged. I did not get comfortable with fast alternate picking or string skips last night. But, I like the sounds and feel of the V-Pick which adds something to my bag-o’-tones. I am not converted and the jury is still out, but I do want to try them some more. There was some variation in the 3 picks I purchased. I got 2 large and 1 small. One of the large and the small had slight offset points on either side (from shaping or putting the “edge” on the pick, I guess). Still fine, but not as nice as the other large one which was perfect (Vinni’s personal reserve?). I did like having more of a point on the large one so perhaps Vinni can let me know how to re-shape the others. I may prefer the smaller V-Pick, but the edges coming to the same point at the tip did make a difference to me so I limited my test to the larger version. This has been a fun adventure and I look forward to more. Gary p.s. For reference, I have used Jazz III exclusively for years.

Gary

These are the real deal for me. I was able to play faster immediately. Seems like for faster/longer runs, my right hand can keep up now. And as someone that hybrid picks a LOT, it sounds more like the natural finger. But faster.

Mike

Just got through about 20 minutes of practicing scales (between emails!). It really gives more of a roundness or fullness to notes – like the tone of playing with your fingers but with the dexterity of playing with a regular pick. I am digging it man…

Jason

Vinni, Hey man, got the picks! Very cool! Speed is what I immediately noticed and had to take a bit of time to let my brain catch up. After a while it all balanced out and my playing became more precise. Bolder tone as well. This is a really great idea man. All the best,

Rick

This pick is a surefire winner in my book. Thank you so much Vinni. I started off about 15 years ago using a pick that was pointed and pretty thick – like a tortex material – filled. I lost it and the closest I could get to it was a Jazz III. They are polyamide – unfilled I’m pretty sure and don’t sound quite as good as the one I lost. Somebody very kindly sent me a dozen JD 205’s recently and they are great also. That’s definitely a filled material. Could be JD’s ‘Tortex’. Your pick feels very comfortable. It’s very speedy and I like the extra thickness. The acid test was playing it with acoustic – sounded great both strumming and picking / hybrid picking. I’m sure the production model will be great – my pre-factory one has got to be worth a lot more though! Very nicely finished off with polished edges. The Jazz III’s can slip in your finger / thumb – it tends to turn a bit in mine. Yours is much more forgiving of this – without any grips. They look great too. I’m pretty sure there is nothing quite like this out there …..yet. All the best Vinni and thanks again. I’ll gladly let another UK Bammer borrow it ..not for too long though.

Darren

Ordered mine this weekend and they shipped on Monday. Got them today (Wednesday). I’m impressed. I’ve tried thinner hard picks and could never get used to them for rhythm but these work just fine. They sound better than regular picks to me. I worried that with a pick this heavy I’d break strings. That’s not going to be a problem. Being clear shouldn’t be a problem as far as losing them. The edges pick up or reflect light in such a way that the edges appear illuminated. Can’t imagine not being able to find them. And the V-Pick logo is etched into the pick so that won’t be wearing off like most logos do and it’ll help you to see it, too. Good job! I’ll order more. Wish I could remember which sizes I did order (deleted the e-mail too soon).

Wayne

Vinni, Excellent picks. The hype is believable! Thanks,

Mark

Just wanted to pop in and drop a huge THANK-YOU to Vinni! You are the man, Vinni! I just got that Large V-Pick you sent me, it’s perfect! I was digging the medium but it seemed like I would miss an occasional pinch harmonic because I didn’t have enough material to grab. Problem solved!!! At first glance it seems like the large is way to huge to be playable for someone who normally uses a Medium pick…. I was dead wrong! Just like the way the medium V-pick seems small for me, the Large was just what the doctor ordered! It gives me enough material to grip it up, but it still retains the feel so it won’t leave your fingers during play (still love that SO much as my fingers sweat when I play for a while aggressively!). I let my friend have one of the medium V-picks too as you asked. He likes it, not sure if he will order one (all are skeptical at FIRST… then they come around! ) but I think once he plays with it some more he will be in the same boat as others like myself on the board. Anyways, just wanted to let you know I’m still very much loving my V-Picks and especially that Large one! You can be sure that I will be ordering more once I finish picking up my new power amp! Thanks again Vinni, you ROCK!

 

Matt

Vinni, I received the V-Picks today. Couldn’t wait to try them. First let me say they are of excellent quality. Rounded just the way I like em too. I thought that they would be too thick for my taste. I was wrong. Never have I thought that a pick could affect my tone, acoustically and through the amp. Bravo!! Thanx,

Jeff

Just got my V-Picks from Vinni, today and I’ll make this short and sweet…. These picks just plain, kick ass. Nice and thick, perfectly cambered and they just glide over the strings. Gallops and sweeps are effortless and pinch harmonics are almost automatic.. Also, rotate that bad boy and you get the same tip on the triangle, three times. These Picks are excellent…!! Oh, one more thing, the clear look and the V-Pick inscription are both pushin major mojo… Thanks, Vinni

Herc.AdministratorThe Axe House Consortium.

I think one of the best things about it now that I’ve played around with it for about a week is that it flows so smoothly back and forth across the strings. Makes my right hand technique and speed better, it’s either the material, the polishing or a combination of the two! Either way, I’m loving them! Two thumbs up here, thanks again Vinni!

I’ve been playing with mine for about a week now. i *really* dig it. great job, Vinni!!! I’ve been using Dunlop M3’s (the green tortex pointy ones shaped similar to the Dunlop series) for the last 8 years or so. those are the only picks I’ve ever really liked until I tried yours. I do find, as a previous poster (madsman) stated, that when I want to play more hard rock / shred-type stuff, the Dunlops work better for me. however, I find that my sweep-picking technique is more clearly executed with the V-pick. I usually don’t play shred-type music, anyway…I’m more of a classic rock / jazz / fusion / blues kind of guy. so far, I think the v-pick is it for me!!! Artificial harmonics are way easier, too. I didn’t think it would be possible to outdo the Dunlop M3, but you did it…KUDOS to you, Vinni!!! I’ll be ordering more in the future….

Mike

My picks arrived today. I never would have believed a pick could make such a difference. The tone is sooooo much richer and smoother. Thanks for a great product.

I got mine yesterday… JEEZ… I love it. I’m just sad I only got one. Before I go on with my review… I gotta ask… Vinni, can I buy some more off of you? I’m serious. I wanna buy about 10… to share with a couple friends too. Here is my review: I’m used to using Dunlop Tortex picks: .73mm and .88mm. I’ve always used these picks for the past several years and they’ve become the standard at which I judge guitar picks. Things I noticed about the V-pick.. and i will go over each point: It’s really thick… thicker than Jazz picks. It’s as clear as a window. It’s smaller than my Tortex picks… but bigger than Jazz picks. It’s got a blade-like edge. It glides across the strings effortlessly. It stays in your fingers without fatigue. Makes notes sing; but still retains attack… just doesn’t have as much At first I thought, oh no… I tried jazz picks before and hated em… this is even thicker than the jazz picks I’ve tried. But when I started to play… I noticed that it was easier to play with the V-pick, than my Tortex picks… and it baffled me. So I picked up my Tortex picks and kept switching to see what the difference was. The Tortex pick was a little more difficult to play… so now I was really confused. Why did I suddenly notice that the picks I’ve been using for years is now unacceptable? I did more comparisons and started to notice the sound difference as well. I started to narrow down the possibilities of what the diff was…. and even more so… why is this V-pick more comfortable to play than those Jazz picks I’ve tried before??? I think the difference lies in the beveled knife-edge and the material it’s made from. The beveled edge makes it glide off the strings without much resistance… thus allowing it to be physically thicker without being cumbersome to your hand. I noticed that my Tortex picks were kinda plucking off the strings because it’s just a flat pick… and it catches the strings. Don’t get me wrong, the V-pick still catches the strings but it lets it go more naturally. The result is less or sound from the pick… more of the singing string sound. The thing is.. the attack is still there. The material it’s made from allows the pick to stay in your fingers without moving… and without fatigue. When I’m shredding for long periods of time, my picking hand starts to cramp a little cos I have to hold on to the pick so tightly… specifically the palm area between my Thumb and pointer finger. With the V-pick… my fretting hand got tired first. That was new to me. I believe the reason for this is because, you really don’t have to hold on to the V-pick very tightly… it just doesn’t move. I don’t know why. People have said that as your fingers warm up, the pick kinda into your fingers… it definitely feels like that, but it is not a gel-type material.. nor is there any rough grip-tape type surfaces on the pick. It’s smooth… like glass. I’m not even gonna attempt to explain why this certain smooth surface adheres to your fingers kinda like a gel type feeling… all I know is… I like it. I also think that because the pick glides off the strings easier, you don’t have to hold it so tightly. The pick itself was a bit small for me at first… but it’s starting to grow on me. If I had to describe the V-pick in one sentence, it would be: “It feels like an extension of my fingers.” It doesn’t feel like a foreign object at all. With my Tortex, I had to constantly adjust the pick with my fretting hand to get it in the perfect position and clamp on tightly… and at least 2 times in each song… readjust it. I had to readjust for leads vs strumming too. I tend to choke up on leads to get some pinch harmonics going sometimes. Conclusion: I want some more. Even if this pick never makes it to the mass market, I would literally use it until something better comes out. And if it was the case that these won’t ever make it to the mass market, I would secretly guard these picks. Vinni, please send me some more. I have a lot of guitar friends… and I also want some more in my possession. I’ll pay for em. For real.

What Vinni has just posted is entirely true. These picks are very fast. The material seems to just slide over the strings and is very very smooth. The grip is very nice. My fingers seem to just stick to the pick and don’t slide at all. Overall the pick is very comfortable to use. Sound wise single notes remind me more of finger-plucking tone (but still retaining the volume of using a ‘normal’ pick) than using a conventional pick. Very full and more bass than treble attack. Very nice sounding.

Hey man! First thing I gotta say is this pick is amazing! I don’t know how you did it, but you made the perfect pick. I can only imagine the hours you’ve put it, but trust me, it shows! And with a pick this good, it was worth it! I know I sound like I’m in some sort of informercial, but I can’t help it! These picks just are THAT GOOD! I’ve always used thicker picks. But I’ve never been able to make it past 1.5 mm. Anything after that was just too cumbersome. It felt detached. So when I read all the reviews, I wasn’t sure. A whopping 2.75 mm? That’s crazy! I gave it a try, because at worst, I’d have a funny story of few silly picks I bought off the internet. But alas! This is not the case. When I tried my medium rounded for the first time today I was amazed! It played much better than picks half it’s size. And the sound was amazing! A friend of mine, who doesn’t even play, can hear the difference in tone with the V-Pick. And hands down, the most comfortable pick I’ve ever played. Anyway man, I just really wanted to let you know that this is more than a great product. This is a wonderful piece of art, and I think guitar players everywhere should be aware of. Your picks are awesome man! Best wishes,

Dustin

Hey Vinni, as you know, I got my picks in the mail a couple of days ago. I put them through their paces, and I have to say that in my opinion, they do everything that they are advertised as doing. They stay put firmly in between my fingers, they have awesome tone, and they do give a marked improvement in speed to my playing. Well done!

The Jazz III’s can slip in your finger / thumb – it tends to turn a bit in mine. Yours is much more forgiving of this – without any grips. They look great too. I’m pretty sure there is nothing quite like this out there …..yet. All the best Vinni and thanks again. I’ll gladly let another UK Bammer borrow it ..not for too long though.

Just got through about 20 minutes of practicing scales (between emails!). It really gives more of a roundness or fullness to notes – like the tone of playing with your fingers but with the dexterity of playing with a regular pick. I am digging it man…

I received my V-picks yesterday and have to say, I’ve found a new pick. They are very comfortable and the attack is very smooth. I got the small ones. Thanks Vinni, best of luck

Vinni, Hey man, got the picks! Very cool! Speed is what I immediately noticed and had to take a bit of time to let my brain catch up. After a while it all balanced out and my playing became more precise. Bolder tone as well. This is a really great idea man. All the best.

These are the real deal for me. I was able to play faster immediately. Seems like for faster/longer runs, my right hand can keep up now. And as someone that hybrid picks a LOT, it sounds more like the natural finger. But faster.
