Well I know this may not be very popular with the casein or space aged pick crowd, but I just ordered me a handful of acrylics!

Gravity has a Tripp, which has three different shapes corners. So it’s like 3 picks in one!
Well, I got 1.5mm, 2mm, 3mm, and 4mm... so kinda like 12 picks?!?!?!

Then, I went to grab 1 or 2 Vpicks that I had been eyeballing, primarily the Jester. Ended up ordering a handful to reach the minimum to get free shipping (turns out to be a $3.99 value.....DOH!)

My new Eastman is now labeled anyday it is somewhere on US soil probably in customs, so I’m getting ready for it.

Hey joemed . I support your choices. I have (and reorder periodically) the V-Pick Tremolo. I do believe it helped some with my tremolo, but it was more about liking the size, the shape, and the heft. And acrylics stick when you warm them up. :^)

Thanks Patrick. I love that Tremolo too, the round version. I play better with this pick (cleaner and faster) than any other pick, that’s including a few Wegens, several Primetones, etc.

I like the tone better with some of the thicker acrylics. So that’s why I ordered several sizes, thicknesses, shapes, etc. I really have high hopes for a few of the Vpicks. The Snake, Spirit, and especially the Jester. That’s a pretty neat looking pick, and the dimensions look like they should work for me.

And I really enjoy playing the 2 Gravity picks I have, looking forward to the other specs....

And they all look pretty cool too! (Just a bonus)

Received several Vpicks today. First impressions are great. I will have a good amount of time the next few days to mess around with them.

Also expecting a few gravity picks today or tomorrow...

Probably went a little overboard, but I have a lot to experiment with
