Sorry to revive this thread, but after reading the above post, I decided to try out some thicker picks. I've loved V-Picks ever since I first tried them, and have been using their Small/Lite pick almost exclusively for years. I ordered six picks ranging in thickness from 2.75 to 4.0 mm, with various beveled edges, ranging in price from $5-10.
I tested their Diamond, Hotter Tamale, Dimension (w/ ghost rim), Zaza, Jester (w/ghost rim), and Van Zen. I eliminated the Zaza, Jester, and Van Zen immediately. The sounds they produced were either extremely soft/warm or extremely glassy.
The Diamond was decidedly my favorite- well balanced highs, mids, and lows with an amazing texture. 4.0 mm thickness, $10/ea. The Hotter Tamale and the Dimension are picks I definitely can and will use, but I have found a pick in the Diamond that will replace the Small/Lite pick. All V-Picks are made with a material that seems to be particularly grabby without being tacky.
Thanks to SShrews824 for planting the seed and to V-Picks for their amazing line-up of wonderful picks.
Glad to hear that it was a good experience for you. Sure, they aren't for everyone, but they have seemed to work out for me and my style of playing for sure. They say, "never say never", but I doubt I'll ever go back to thinner picks.
