This plectrum is slightly flexible, making it a favorite of acoustic guitar and mandolin players who like that quality in a pick. A wonderful pick for strumming. Bright, snappy tone with articulation is what you find with the Ultra Lite Pointed picks. The surface of the V-Pick clings to your skin, allowing you to relax your grip. If you commonly drop picks or get cramps in your hands, this pick will really help you.

I had ordered a selection from you a few weeks ago and the ultra light medium turned out to be the choice. The principal reason for me that this pick wins the all-picks-in-the-world contest lies in its "stickability;" I have double-jointed thumbs and so have a real problem with dropped picks (in performance, I use violin rosin to help out) and this one seems almost like glue-- a great relief.
If you are having any trouble with your pick; gripping, dropping, tense wrist or fingers, etc...... it's probably the pick. Some are too soft & flimsy and others are too stiff. Check out V-Picks at www.v-picks.com It's all about control.
I personally recommend the Ultra Lite Medium Pointed. Yeah, they may be considered a bit expensive, but you won't regret paying for quality that does what it says it will. Vinni Smith is a great guitar player and Super business owner... he WILL take care of you!
It's the same situation as having a great sounding & playing guitar with a great amp, but the line-cord between them is not so good; Or a bad tube in your amp, dead strings on a great axe... it's the little things we easily overlook that can make ALL the difference. I have been playing and performing professionally for some 45 years... I wouldn't give top kudos to anything that didn't live up to its ad. Any Parker owner knows they've invested in a quality guitar and a few dollars more will make that quality stand out ahead of the crowd for both you and all who have an ear for superior tone. Once you give V-Picks a chance you won't use any other plectrum. You wouldn't put cheap re-tread tires on a Hummer nor plug your Parker into a cheapo amp, so why use the same old cheapy plastic-nylon-rubbery picks everyone else does? You've got the best guitar, now get the best pick to play it with.
Hi Nancy and Vinni,
Just a quick note to say that after the first couple of hours of playing with my ultra thin medium V-pick I couldn't be happier. I play a Hohner EA acoustic with Tusq saddle, pins and nut so it's got a lot of frequency response - I was having all kinds of secondary string noise problems with horn picks but your picks are AMAZING. Thank you so much - your picks have proved to be the final piece of the puzzle in getting the sound I want. I've been playing over 40 years so I'm not easily impressed but I will be recommending your picks to everyone.
I first saw an ad for your picks in Guitar Player magazine, then I saw thread about them at the electric Guitars forum at Harmony-Central.com. I was very curious about them, so i decided to order a few. I ordered three of the Medium Rounded but it was the free pick you included with that order that I really liked; it was a Medium Ultra Light Pointed. So I ordered 3 of those, too.
I tried them today and they are really everything you say about them, and they do improve my playing. And I need all the help I can get ;) Thanks for making a great feeling and sounding pick
