This is the guitar pick that started if all off. It is the core of our line. The original V-Pick. A fast action plectrum with a warm tone, yet lots of bite if you want it. It has the typical V-Pick "grippage." Good for all kinds of music. Has a natural, singing mid-range bump. One of our most popular and most versatile V-Picks. Three symmetrical corners give you three times the life, and V-Picks have a very long life. A great place to start if you're new to V-Picks. A lot of big time artists play this pick. Gabriel Manzo, Denny Jiosa, Jorge Santana, and Chuck D'Aloia. All of these guys are monsters on their instruments, and I am very proud to say they play the V-Pick Medium Rounded.

I finally got a chance to sit down with the V-picks and try them out at volume. I have to say that they are everything your web page says they are. I'm honestly blown away. From the moment I started playing with them I had a grin on my face from ear to ear. It's strange how they seem to make my right and left hand work so well together. I think it has something to do with the fact that my picking hand is finally relaxed. This allows my fretting hand to relax more as well. Now I can go from subtle to intense with what seems like no effort at all. Plus, the pick itself glides so effortlessly across the strings yet still manages to coax a full tone with just the right amount and balance of highs.
By far my favorite is the medium round pick. I'll definitely be ordering some more.
Hey man! First thing I gotta say is this pick is bloody 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 infomercial, 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!
Vinni makes some serious picks. Everything else just don't sit right in my hands anymore. The tone is thicker, louder and richer. Medium rounded are my picks for life without a doubt.
I asked for nothing besides 5 v-picks from my girlfriend for our 2 year anniversary. My view on picks changed that day. Feb 15 2008.
I got my picks today and all I can say is WOW. I could tell the difference from the very first chord I strummed. My guitar sounds like a totally different instrument - a much more expensive one :) I'm amazed.
Thanks so much.
Sorry for the delay in my reply, I was unfortunately away from home for a while and unable to give these picks a test run or two. I wanted to be able to let you know what I thought of them when I replied, so I waited. When I first got a chance to try them out, I was not sure if I liked them. It took me a while to get used to their size and feel since I was used to much smaller picks like the Dunlop Stubby. But now that I have been playing with these picks for a few days now and have become accustomed to them, I can say that I am a very happy customer!
Probably had my best session ever playing my guitar yesterday, and I think I can attribute a lot of the improvement to your picks. I always had issues with my old picks rotating in my grip, making me fumble and keep readjusting, but not so with this one! I also have noticed that since my grip can be relaxed more, that my strumming shoulder is a lot less tense while playing. Much easier to play fast riffs too since it glides over the strings very easily, just like everyone has been saying. I could go on. These picks are amazing!
To answer your question as to where I heard about your picks, I found it through an online social bookmarking service called StumbleUpon. Apparently a previous customer of yours was so happy with your picks that they submitted your web page to this service, to allow people like myself to discover your site.
I had only ordered one Screamer, but you also included a medium rounded with it in my package. I play primarily with the Screamer, but for fooling around with strumming chords occasionally I think the Medium Rounded will be awesome. Thanks for giving me another pick to try out even though I did not ask for it.
Thank you again for an awesome product, I will be ordering again at some point!
Just wanted to say I got the pick I ordered and a free medium rounded... THANKS! I actually like the rounded better! I can actually hear a tone difference... very cool! I am hooked! Very different feeling in a good way and I can actually control my runs better?!?!?! I don't know how or why it works but it does!
