Description

From V-Pick:

Designed for and with the late, great Mike Scaccia, guitarist extraordinaire from Ministry and Rigor Mortis. This is the pick for all you Shredders! 1.5mm thick and a very sharp bevel and point. Creates pinch harmonics like you have never experienced before with any guitar or amp! This is all done by pick design. They also have the same gripping action that V-Picks are so well known for. So, if you are a Metal player and want speed, bite and easy grip, then the V-Pick SwitchBlade is for you! This pick has unbuffed edges.

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.
