FANTASTIC PICK! Stealth Big Mini 3mm acrylic orange pick. I also like the Stealth Big Mini 2.5mm gold series. I really like the gold material and it’d be great if it came in 3mm thickness in this particular incarnation. I have several other Gravity picks but these are my top two, in order. I’ve tried many a boutique pick and I like the Gravity picks the best.
what an absolutely fabulous and amazing pick! the sunrise big mini 1.5 and 2.5 are my choice, particularly as they work so well on all my guitars. the clarity and articulation one can achieve at fast tempo on a nylon string with the 1.5 is nothing short of breathtaking. i use a hybrid of scalpel and wrist technique with the pick angled at around 80 degrees. it makes the distance between the strings smaller and thus less effort needed, with gravity acrylics this was great, but a little noisy on the wound strings for a few days. with the gravity gold however is is very little fret noise, i can play rest strokes or free strokes, economy or alternate picking and sweeping jazz chords is great too. the pick goes thru the strings like butter. i trained as a classical guitarist too and the tone of this pick competes very well with a finely bevelled and shaped nail. i’ve even been playing some Bach violin partitas. i used wegen picks for a while so i’m not averse to shelling out for boutique picks, but this one is clearly the best i’ve ever tried, day after day after day! currently i’m seeing how long a 1.5 will last just on nylon strings for 3 or 4 hours a day speed picking. so far 1 month and very little wear! thanks gravity. this is an absolutely stunning breakthrough, willy wonka style!!
These picks are amazing! The extra attack from the stiffer thickness helps you to control your note dynamics with even greater dexterity and fluidity. Also, they are tough and last forever. Try a much thicker size than you would ever expect to work for you, I think you will be pleasantly surprised! The variety pack is a perfect compliment for anyone using these for the first time. You won’t need more as you will never throw them to the audience!
I really like these picks I got 4 to see what they were all about. I prefer smaller picks (jazz3). I noticed that these produce ahigh pitch pick noise, similar to a presence knob on an amp turned up. mostly heard when strumming chords, not so much on single notes. It may not be a bad thing and most people may not even notice it. And maybe I just havent found my perfect pick yet. But these picks are GREAT and on the right track. I may get a “Gold” series one if I can get over the $20-$30 investment.
I can honestly say that for me, the sunrise 1.5mm is the perfect guitar pick. The tone is incredible, the grip is fantastic, and even though it seems expensive at first, as long as you keep up with it, you’re getting your money’s worth. I’ve been using the same pick for about a year now, I believe. I think the only downside is that it doesn’t indefinitely retain its edge. Some players like how a pick forms to their playing, but I personally don’t. I enjoy the snap, punch, and immediacy of a freshly cut Gravity pick. This is a sad truth for all guitar picks though, they wear down. (Maybe Gravity could offer a re-beveling service?) Considering that I probably would’ve spent $20-$40 in Jazz III’s a couple years ago, and surely would have lost each and every one of them by now, I consider this Gravity pick to be money well spent.
I’ve been exclusively a Dunlop Yellow Tortex guy for over 15 years. I regularly made fun of players who would spend a ton of money on picks. Then I bought a JHS pedal, and tried the included pick on a whim. Now I’m eating crow and trying to figure out the best way to find the exact right shape, size, and thickness for me without spending a ton of trying different picks. Long story short – one experience with the JHS signature pick has convinced me that I need to revisit being a Yellow Tortex-only player.
Go figure… I bought a VCR pedal and was surprised to find this pick in the package. I have heard of these picks before but dismissed them because they are so expensive. Who in their right mind pays that much for a pick… after playing with it though… I understand. I will say I do think they are expensive, but the quality and craftsmanship that goes into them is awesome. I would not have believed a pick could make this much of a difference. Whoever the dude is that happened to “handmake” mine that day is a good dude. I am sold.
Ever since my first free sample several years ago, Gravity Picks have become my favorite “go-to” picks. They are comfortable and you don’t hear the pick on the strings, just the sounds of the notes and chords. I prefer the .77mm Standard shape, but have others as well. I never thought that I would spend $5.00 for a p[ick, but these are well worth it and I keep several of them in each of my guitar cases.
I ordered 3 picks las week; a sunrise 2mm, a razor 3mm and a standart pointy 1.5mm. There are really good picks. All of them. But not only that, the guys of gravity includes a thin pick and a stealth 4mm (which is usually 9$). The only problem I had was thar the 2mm sunrise came a bit scratched. It doesn’t affect the sound but it’s a bit annoying. New favourite pick by the way…
I ordered 3 1.5mm classic picks, mostly to try them out, as I’ve never played acrylic picks before. Well, I wasn’t only extremely impressed by the sound, feel and grip of the picks I ordered, but the Gravity guys included 2 more picks as a bonus, which impressed me the same. This is now by far my favourite company and by far my favourite picks. Is there a way to get a lifetime supply or something? 5/5 stars, recommended to everyone!
Fourth order from Gravity so I have my favorite dialed in. Big mini stealth 1.5 with master finish. Lets talk service, easy site to order from, fast(5 days) inexpensive shipping to Canada with tracking included, discount coupon codes, 2 extra picks thrown in. Just the best!! Thank you Chris & team.
I played the red or black jazz iiis for years, I never thought I would use a thicker pick than those are forever. I’ve tried other picks countless times, and always went back to the jazz iiis bummed out and thinking “I guess these are just the ones I use” then I heard about these. I first bought a variety pack, and favored the big mini sunrise the most, it was a 2mm pick, but somehow I found myself wanting more. I ordered some 3mm, and 4mm in the same size and shape, and play the 3mm mostly for about 3 months, for the last 6 or 7 I’ve almost exclusively used the 4mm sunrise big mini, and I can’t believe how much cleaner my sweep picking has gotten. It’s like the pick is ready for the next string before I am. Keep a light right hand, and they soar across the strings. Amazing!
I opted for the variety pack for my first purchase. Like it’s name they give you a bunch of different picks to play with to figure out what suits you best. You will hear different tones and of the each finish grabs the string in their own way. These are a bargain considering they will last a heck of a lot longer than the average plectrum.
Just stopping by to check the improved website, I figure I’ll leave a review. I was gifted 6 picks during the holidays, 2 of which, including a .6mm thin pick, and a 3mm sunrise were sent unexpectedly and free, thanks for that! Since I began using them, I haven’t looked back at all, I love the feel and sound these picks produce. I haven’t ever used a pick over 1.5 mm, but adjusting to 2 and 3 mm was instant. I couldn’t choose a favorite, but I will say that the tone difference between master finish edge picks and standard smooth edge is very noticeable, especially with single coils. The smooth edged ones have less bite and I tend to prefer them for the nice mellow sound, almost like a nylon pick. Acrylic seems to be the perfect material for me, I’ll definitely stick to these picks and order more if the ones I have ever wear out.
