More volume and less pick noise.
The Gold Series is a premium material offered by Gravity Picks. The material is a high grade thermoplastic which is amazingly wear-resistant. There is a sizable difference in volume when compared with a normal pick, enabling you to cut through the mix.
I’ve tried all the Jim Dunlop Jazz III picks (red nylon, stiffo, tortex, etc.) and settled on their ULTEX Jazz III picks for my regular use. On a whim, I decided to try the Gravity Gold Pick Mini in 003 shape, after having great experience with the Acrylic 003 picks.
The tone from the Gold 003 picks were a little more mellow than the ULTEX picks I was used to, but I found the tones more “musical”. I now reach for them over the other picks that I have in my stash.
I will recommend the picks to people who are searching for “the” pick. Maybe my next batch will have custom etching and a different colour? 😏
I’m really enjoying my Gravity picks! I like the material of the Gold pick but I prefer the Acrylic Mini because I like the attack of the polished Beveled edge.I would like to see the polished beveled edge on the Gold mini.
The pick has a nice tone when played on acoustic (certainly on electric the tone is affected only slightly by the pick material). My problem is that it is kinda slippery. It would be awesome if it would have a better grip. For this reason I don’t use it as often, so cannot say anything about longevity.
