October 7, 2014 | Memphis Belle Mandolin Pick
Probably one of the strangest mandolin pick shapes we've tried, but the new convex (or concave) mandolin pick, Memphis Belle is worth trying for yourself. We got our sample at the V-picks booth during summer NAMM.
From the website founder Vinny Smith explains, "This is a mandolin pick that you will not soon forget. Bowed and con-vexed to fit your thumb. This is the first pick ever made like this, and it is the most comfortable pick I have ever played. Every one is 100% hand made by a pick artisan here at V-Picks. Each one is unique. Tone is rich and full. Has the V-Pick Grippage factor as well as thumb grip!"
Only $8.00--worth taking for a (literal) spin.
