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…

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.

Scott

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…

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…

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…

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…

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…

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…

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.

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…

Paul

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…

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…

    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…

    Carlo

    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…

    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…

    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.

    Martin

    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!

    Kurt McDonald

    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…

    Jorge Strunz

    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…

    Charles

    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!!!

    David

    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

    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.

    Gary

    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…

    Mike

    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.

    Jason

    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…

    Rick

    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,

    Darren

    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…

    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…

    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…

    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…

    Herc.

    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…

    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…

    Mike

    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…

    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…

    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…

    Dustin

    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…

    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…
