Overview

The Jellifish guitar plectrum is for guitarists on the lookout for new sonic textures.The Jellifish”referred to as a plectrum effect”resembles a guitar pick, but consists of a handle with 18 articulated tines that form a beveled edge. The tines are precise lengths of compression-wound composite wire made on a continuous winding machine.

When held correctly the tines make string contact in succession with your guitar strings. Applying the Jellifish plectrum actuates lingering transients and increased high-frequency sound energy. Jellifish is designed for applying sweep picking, alternate picking, and circular picking techniques. Each picking technique using the Jellifish on your guitar produces a slightly different timbre.

Chorus (sweep picking) with the Jellifish resembles the sound of a chorus pedal or a 12-string guitar. The sound of Jellifish Pluck (alternate picking) is often compared to a hammered dulcimer. Bow (circular picking) produces a bowed instrument effect.

You can use your Jellifish guitar plectrum on steel stringed acoustics, nylon-stringed, or electric guitars.

This pick does as it says, but requires practice (as do most things in life) for proper technique. It is tauted as providing a choral type sound, but by varying positions and attack, there are many sound possibilities. The best sound seems to come from a light touch/brushing motion. I like it, give it a try - but practice with it.

$10.00 is about $8.00 too much for this puppy--especially when you consider the company is paying about $0.10/unit to manufacture them in China. One could take two heavy picks and by supergluing them together with a shim between them have the same effect for 1/10 the cost. And the result would probably be more durable than this. The tines are flimsy and break easily. As for the sound. Forget it. A cheap chorus pedal such as the Danelectro Fab chorus, a Behringer, or an Arion produces a better sound. As for the "bowed" effect--the manufacturer's claims are highly exaggerated. Saving up for an e-bow would be a better use of money if that is the effect one is seeking.

AWESOME!

By Speedbeetle

from Kilmarnock VA

This little thing is one of the sweetest things you can buy for your guitar. There are two ways to hold it, each with different tone. The first way gives a crisp tone, while the other way has a sharper tone. Overall, I would recommend it to any guitarist who likes tonal variety.

Great idea!

By btiberio

from Fairport, NY

I bought one of these, and it's gotta be just the sweetest little thing you could buy for 10 bucks. It takes a little while to get used to it, but after that, the possibilities are endless. I'd say its definetly worth buying.

Jellifish Chorus guitar pick

By JokingToker

from Leawood, KS

When I played with the Jellifish Chorus guitar pick, It was anything but comfortable. After about five minutes of fooling around with it, I could hear the effect of the chorus. I purchased it that night and have loved it ever since. It's a hefty sum for one little pick, so I would definately try it before you buy it.

So I Guess It's A Good Idea?

By Killing Nevada

from B-Town, ID

Erm, I dont get any different sounds than I do with my regular Dunlop tortex picks. Ive tried this thing on acoustics, 12 stings, and a good ol' Les Paul and it all sounds the same. I guess if you want a chorus sound, get a chorus pedal. Not worth the $$ IMO.

Nothing too special

By kclaassen16

from Andover, KS

The jellifish pick has its own unique style as well as its own sound. This pick produces more of a brushing sound while strumming. Posture is everything with this pick. In general, you hold it the same way you would any other pick, but depending on what angle you are holding it, you will get diffent sounds. Personally, I think it sounds best with chords instead of individual notes, because of the brushing noise that is produced. Overall, however, I do not believe that this pick is worth the money spent on it. If you are feeling adventurous or just want to try something new buy the jellifish pick.

Great pick!!!

By Bassline 220

from Montclair N.J.

The Jellifish Pick is a great pick. It gives your guitar a fuller, better quality sound no matter what style music you play. The pick works well for both electric and acoustic guitars. My only complaint is that it doesn't hold up well after extended use.
