Here in Tennessee we have some beautiful mountains. When you get up in the morning and look out the window you see smoke rising from them. When we first moved here I thought there was someone up there with a campfire. This cracked up a few of my friends. I found out it was the moisture rising up from the ground. In Eastern Tennessee they call them the Smokey Mountains. The name “Smokey” comes from the natural fog that often hangs over the range and presents as large smoke plumes from a distance. Now I know!
I have found this material that is very smokey and cool looking. It is still clear, but very dark and mysterious. I love it. A lot of you have been asking for the Dimension in colors. Well, in all of our intense testing of colors, we finally found one that would not affect the tone or playability of our guitar picks, and thought of all your requests! The name just seemed to fit so well, so the V-Pick Smokey Mountain Series was born.
The Ghost Rim model V-Pick is an option of manufacture that gives you a wonderful, unique, and very musical “ghostly whisper” to your pick attack. It can be used to tame down a very aggressive attack and yet, if you change your technique just a bit, you can get that cool Brian May, Ed King, Billy Gibbons effect and sound! It can deliver a hush effect much like a violin bow, or bark like you are using a coin as a plectrum. If you do not like the chirp a thick pick can sometime make, then the Ghost Rim option is for YOU! First we take extra time to expertly and masterfully grind the pick. We have this method down to an art. This is not easy and takes years to learn to do it correctly. So much care is taken because the pick does not go thru the last stage of flame buffing. The flame can hide a multitude of sins, so we have to make sure these are precisely made to our exacting specifications. I first started making picks like this in 1980. V-Picks are the FIRST and ORIGINAL company to make this product available to you. We invented this idea of making picks and we excel above all the rest in doing so. All of my personal picks have been Ghost Rim or “unbuffed” picks.
