V-Picks Colossal Ghost Rim
1 3/8″ tip to tip –
Dude! This is a $30 pick that is worth the money!
It sports all the attributes of a normal V-Pick. Great sound, fast action and slip resistant. PLUS it is amazingly kool!
The Ghost Rim model V-Pick is an option of manufacture that gives you a wonderful, unique, and very musical “ghostly whisper” to your pick attack. It can be used to tame down a very aggressive attack and yet, if you change your technique just a bit, you can get that cool Brian May, Ed King, Billy Gibbons effect and sound! It can deliver a hush effect much like a violin bow, or bark like you are using a coin as a plectrum. If you do not like the chirp a thick pick can sometime make, then the Ghost Rim option is for YOU! First we take extra time to expertly and masterfully grind the pick. We have this method down to an art. This is not easy and takes years to learn to do it correctly. So much care is taken because the pick does not go thru the last stage of flame buffing. The flame can hide a multitude of sins, so we have to make sure these are precisely made to our exacting specifications. I first started making picks like this in 1980. V-Picks are the FIRST and ORIGINAL company to make this product available to you. We invented this idea of making picks and we excel above all the rest in doing so. All of my personal picks have been Ghost Rim or “unbuffed” picks.
The extra thickness allows for your hand to be in a more open position. This is a very comfortable way to play. Also great for players with hand injuries. The open position also teaches you to not play with a death grip. We don’t realize it sometimes, but when we grip tiny, thin picks the way we do for some years, it can create a huge problem for our playing, both physical and mental. We can break that progression. By playing a pick that forces us to lighten up, it is amazing what a player can do and become!
Unlike the Insanity, which is mostly a learning, practicing tool, this pick can be used all the time and can become your “go to” pick. It has become mine.
