Sage Wisdom

"Good improvisation communicates harmonic progression melodically. Effective melodies manipulate harmonic content through the use of guide tones and preparatory gravity notes, masterfully woven in systematic tension, release, and transparent harmonic definition."

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.
