More volume and less pick noise.
The Gold Series is the premium line 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.
Amazing crisp, loud and long lasting picks.
Great tone, shape and feel!
plays super smooth, and after 2 weeks of intense playing, shows little to no wear!
Everything as described and more. I know exactly what everyone is talking about now when they say that the pick glides off the strings
So then why 4 stars? First I’ll say I’ve used a bunch of Gravity Products and found them satisfactory but not entirely for me. I always felt like they were on the cusp of something great, it’s why I kept trying. So..
First, pick symmetry is right on, and if you’re familiar with Gravity picks you already know this is a thing they excel at. This is a fast pick, meaning the symmetry, plus material used affords a player really fantastic attack(playing a note with whatever degree of dynamic) and release(being free of the string for next attack). It’s terrific. Great control in this pick.
Second, materials used with the gold series picks has great grip without actually having a grip carved into the pick. I feel like in earlier series the high gloss clear plastics made it difficult for dudes like me that sweat and play high energy thrash/speed metal to hang on to the picks or not have them rotating between your fingers. These gold picks get it right.
Third and last though is price. It’s difficult for me to justify $25 for ONE pick. At the time of this review I’m about 15-20 hours into playing on this pick and I’m pretty hard on picks. This far it’s wearing very well but I’m also the type of guy that likes to see just what beating a thing will take.
Should you get this pick(or the classic gold) pick that speaks to you and your playing? Absolutely.
Very comfortable, and perfect contours. Best pick i have tried; highly recommend
