The thing is, material aside, anyone who hasn’t tried a beveled pick of at least the size of the v pick snake (4.1 mm) has no point of reference to compare their thinner picks (even their 2.0 mm stubbies or fatties or whatever) to. None. It is dramatic, the difference size makes. The even-thicker ones really accentuate the difference. It may not be for everybody, but until you hear the vast difference in depth of tone you’ll never know. If the chirp bothers you, get the unbuffed version.
