POLISHED VS MASTER FINISH
The bevels on each pick are shaped on a grinding wheel which creates rough bevels. Those bevels are then polished or left unpolished (which we call ‘Master Finish’).
The Polished version glides across the strings with very little effort.
The Master Finish (unpolished) version is a bit brighter and creates a different release off the string. It allows you to ‘dig in’ a bit more. It is just a personal preference.
The minimum thickness for the grip holes is 2mm. We cannot offer the grip holes in the 1.5mm thickness because they can break easily. I apologize for the inconvenience. Please try the 2mm. Most players are able to adjust up to the 2mm.
I think that changing pick material is the least expensive way to experiment with tone. Gravity really offers a lot of shapes, thickness and finishes that really help to experiment. I really love the master finish, it really helps get rid of the click that sometimes is a byproduct of acrylic. I now keep an ashtray (I don't smoke, it's just the best place to put a pick and not lose it on a desk) with various options. The colors really help identify the thickness when I have the lights down in the studio; especially when I have several with the same shape. The Standard Classic 1.5 is really the best all around pick for me. The other ones I find to be more specialized. This is going to sound crazy, bt now I use certain picks with certain guitars. I like the Big mini Edge polished finish 6.0 mm with my Gretsch Hollow body & a Classic Standard 2.0 mm with master finish with my Wolfgang. The picks don't wear down like nylon or other plastics. They feel consistent and fresh. The downside is that at $6-$9 a piece , I'm careful not to let people "borrow" a pick. I also don't leave them laying around at a gig.
I love the acrylic picks! They do not wear out fast and I have been steadily using one for 6 months now testing them out. They are great! I am going to be using these
I use my Gravity Pick 3mm Standard Razor as my main pick now. Love it but I would like you to make it less slick. Ibanez uses a little grit on theirs, other use a thin rubber film. I need something on this pick so it is not smooth as glass when I get swety. It makes it very hard to hold even with the small holes in it. The other option like the big hole won't work for me either. It really needs some sort of non slip surface where you hold it. I would think you guys could come up with something. Other than that, I love the pick.
Love the unique material and durability of the picks. Once you get playing it kind of sticks to your hand and makes for enjoyable guitar playing.
