Yes, this pick is the same size and shape as the one it looks like.
Like many guitar players, I have been on a tone quest for a long time. One element that often gets overlooked in the pursuit of expression is the pick that we use. After settling for many years on a competitor, I finally gave in and tried the Gravity 003. It has the form factor that I have come to rely upon, albeit in a more refined manner. Upon playing it, I found that picking was easier for me, I would think because of the material used. It glides across the string with less effort than it's competition. I am not a great alternate picker yet I didn't know that my previous pick was making it more difficult. You don't know what weighs you down until you find something better. It does sound different as well. I feel that the 003 gives me more of my guitar and less of the pick. I tested this across several different picks and by far, the 003 had the clearest sound to it. I enjoy gear that stays out of my way and allows me to not consider it when creating or playing music, and the 003 does that. It just works exactly as it should. There is not a lot of gear that I can say that about, but I am quite happy to put that in writing about the Gravity Picks 003.
It's a great pic for mandolin: compact, easy to maintain your finger grip, and the beveled edge works well with paired strings, while the thickness lends power against the strings.
This shape, size, and the unfinished bevel/edge is perfect for my electric guitar playing needs. The pick material warms in the hand and keeps it connected to my fingers without feeling sticky and without me needing to apply unnecessary force to hold on to it. I’m really happy I found out about Gravity Picks.
I absolutely love gravity picks 003. The material they are made of give the perfect feel and grip, the rounded edge gives perfect tone on all my guitars: electric, nylon string, acoustic and nylon string MIDI. Playing highly technical jazz-fusion with lots of high speed alternate picking is very demanding, and Gravity picks 003 make the job a lot easier. Thank you Gravity Picks!
