I ordered the Large Pointed Tip 3mm Primetone pick a few weeks ago and I am enjoying it very much. The picks arrived the day before a Bluegrass jam session a friend had, and I played the pick all night. I really bought them with Gypsy Jazz in mind, but I have been using them for everything. The picks are very smooth and rounded, letting you play loud or soft. Usually I have to play more aggressively with such a thick pick, but I can still get good control playing softer. They have very low noise, and I like the grooves which are much like another brand of thick picks I use, but at a much lower price. Dunlop continues to be my favorite brand of pick, I use many of their picks on a regular basis.
Before this pick I was using the Jazztone 204 for the past 15 years. I thought that pick had no resistance to the strings and relaxed my arm, etc. However, this pick, specifically the 304 shape (3 mm), has those qualities to an even greater degree. I feel that this pick has almost no resistance to the string. It has definitely had a positive impact on my playing (changed my life). All the notes are even with no notes "jumping out" inadvertently. Also the lack of resistance really helps me stay relaxed on the gig. I feel that this pick allows my ideas to flow naturally without hindrance from any physical considerations of the pick. As to the price, have you priced boutique picks? This is better than many boutique picks and, in comparison, a bargain! Seemingly this pick is similar in design to a Wegen, but Wegen doesn't make one in this shape and size. Enjoy!
I have been using jazz picks for the last 40 years and I believe that these picks are in a class by themself. I have had problems with the pick rotating off-tip while playing, requiring a readjustment on the fly. These do not turn because of the tactility of the pick surface.
these are a dream......and this is coming from a guy who used to play with .38 mm dunlop nylons. big jump but the pick is magic. i ordered the ones shaped like Jazz 3's
These picks are the best thing to happen to guitar for years. They last a long time and are so great to use. I mostly use the 3mm but the the 5mm are cool to use once in a while for a change. I have only used the large pointed tip models which are very fast. The 5mm is shaped for right hand picking only.
