They are replicating wear, a relic is a relic
Or something.......I don’t know.....
There are no wear marks or visible wear. Burnishing is a polishing technique, not so much a relicing technique.
I like the textured grip feature. Because of mild nerve damage in my thumb and forefinger, I have to concentrate on holding my picks. The best I've tried, (and have used them for years) are Clayton "rounded triangle" picks. White, and 1.26mm.....so pretty stiff. I might give these a try, just for kicks. Thanks.
How much do these pick technicians get paid, and what kind of training do they have? Are these elite pick technicians, or just like the guys who burnish picks at Guitar Center? I have a bunch of picks that need burnishing, but I'm not sending them to just anybody.
I got you covered, just send a self addressed envelop and $29.95 to...
The extra grip is one of the things I like most. It's tough to even reposition the pick once you've grabbed it. They just don't move.
I think I may extend my Ebay business.
With every pair of used underwear receive a real used pick.
I love my nous for potential, time to get busy...
I’ve never been able to keep track of a pick long enough to wear it in.
I lose em’ like no one else.
I just buy a dozen every couple of months.
Ironically, I have lot’s of specialty picks that I really never use/lose.
My new choice, Dunlop Ultex Jazz III XL, are amber/transparent, and very hard to see once droppped.
It’s a conspiracy, I tell ya’!
BS. They‘ve got bevelled edges for a better string contact/response. I‘m playing those picks maybe for a year now, they really helped me improve my technique, speed and especially my pick dynamic. They aren’t expensive because they’re built to last.
One of the main reasons I started using the white Claytons was so I could see and find them easier if dropped onstage. The funny thing is, I don't think I've ever dropped one (onstage) since then.
“Burnished”? All they did was put a simple bevel on it. Not saying that’s bad; the bevel makes the pick. I get some of my picks cut with a sharp right-hand bevel (look at the uneven bevels in the photo). Talk about burnished.
Did I say I throw them out right after I bought them?
I play mostly finger style but I have two favorite picks in a dish next to my guitar stand for those bridge pickup songs that call for them. One is a Dunlop PrimeTone 1mm. The other is a D'addario Cortex 1mm. They're both perfectly burnished, by me. The surfaces are different, but neither slips in my grip. The attack is softened just a little. Some of the softening is due to natural burnishing. Some is due to the material. I have plenty of celluloid picks I don't use and Tortex picks that I bring with me because I don't want to lose my two favorites. Tortex is interesting. The attack actually gets harder as they wear. I've had both the PrimeTone and Cortex picks for at least 5 years. That must be a record for holding on to picks without losing them. Both were given to me, the Cortex by a coworker whose husband works at Daddario and the PrimeTome by a salesperson at GC.
I'm waiting for the Master-Burnisher Picks.
Mine self-relic until they’re worn down too far to be comfortable.
I always feel bad when I throw away one that has worn out. It takes me a few days to warm up to the new one.
Never once in my life have I thought anything about picks (except thickness) makes any difference.
To the Rock Polishers on the TDPRI, everything matters.
If I found one I’d probably give it a try. But I like a thick pointy pick. I used Stubbys & Jazz IIIs until I got a V-Pick
My girlfriend calls them wee stains because on the carpet they look like an accident left by the dog
