Those expensive picks part II

Hi Folks,

Well, my BC TAD 1 F 60 just arrived in the mail. I got out my mandolin and took out my DAWG pick and the Jake BBGS pick to compare.

  1. the BC slides off the strings faster than the Dawg pick or Jake’s pick

  2. the BC seems a little louder and CLEARER than the other two picks.

  3. doing tremelo seems easier with the BC pick.

“I took my pick, now I’m a believer, without a trace of doubt in my mind, I’m in love!! I’m a believer, I’m a believer I’m a believer!!!” (apologies to the Monkees)


Yep they seem to have that affect hard to explain though its the same way I was, although I went a little over board and purchased a few different ones just to find out if there was one I would like better so far I like everyone of the ones I have purchased, each one seems to give a little different in sound to me and everyone of them seem to glide through the strings


My experience with them is exactly the same. Glad you feel like you got your money’s worth.


Part II :flushed:


Glad to know I am not imagining things!!


Thanks for the input and that I am not imagining things.
