I switch between electric guitar and celtic mandolin (with transducer and DI box) at most gigs. I just use the same plectrum.. usually a mid size Dunlop Jazz style .88 ish.

Thicker sounds better as a rule though for mandolin.

I also had a revelation putting flatwound medium/heavy stainless strings on mine. It really gave it a stronger voice and punch. It was thin and rattly with roundwounds through the PA.
