    Not a demo, but I'm a fan of the product... I tend to play high-gain, and with YouTube compression it's harder to hear differences in picks, but I put together a fun little video on some of the V-Picks in my collection.

    Ditto... I first had the Switchblade and then got the Blackhole, which I prefer due to the hole (for gripping). I use the others now and again, but use the Blackhole 90% of the time. HOWEVER... for guitars with less balls, like my Backlund 200, the Red Rocker sounds better... thicker and more bottom end.

    The thin freakishly huge triangle one is my shit.
    I can only ever find it in the clear acrylic though; it'd be nice to find a colored one. Might stick around a bit longer without getting lost :lol:

    You should contact Vinni... he gets in various colored acrylics and may be able to make you up some. Maybe not, but wouldn't hurt to ask.

    How are you guys not getting crazy chirping from them? Tried the ones with the unpolished edge that’s supposed to eliminate it, felt like driving with the parking brake on.

    Acoustic, electric, mandolin... doesn’t matter. I get crazy pick noise from all acrylic picks.

    I only notice it on clean stuff or if volume is really low so since I usually play pretty dirty that prob covers up noise from the pick. I've also noticed that certain guitars seem to pick up the sometimes faint chirping more than others... combination of body, strings, etc I guess. I don't attack my strings very hard fwiw. I also think that the newer that an acrylic pick is... the more it seems to resonate, chirp, or whatever... whether finished or raw. Acrylic isn't my all time fave material but some of them fit me well... Blackhole/ Switchblade. I also started using their Mummy picks recently... really aggressive grip all the way across the plectrum.. not so sharp either. I like 'em at times but also liking the EB Prodigy 1.5 a lot lately so...
