Fender 351 Shape Premium Picks (12 Pack)
I just tried a whole bunch of different types of pics in the last couple months, since I thought I'd see what's out there, and see if there's something new out there for me. I ended going right back to these, my old reliable choice, that I've used since I was in high school, and ordered a new batch, because they really are the most comfortable for my small hands, and I like the sound, it's a clear, crisp, and not too muddy, nor overwhelming sound that these pics produce in my hands. I've used these Fender Heavy pics on my acoustic guitars for the last 40 years.
Pics are easy to lose, and so I got a little Pic holder, which I'm really liking, since it helps to not drop the pics into a black hole. Some accessories truly are worthwhile, while others are unnecessary, the pic holder is a very cheap bargain, like $2-5, you can get them at your favorite music store, retail or online, that is proving to be useful. Instead of dropping the pic I'm using, I put it in the pic holder instead, since when I'm playing, I switch between finger picking without a pic, and strumming with a pic, it's a ripe time for dropping pics into the black holes of the front yard, or under the couch etc. The pic holder is helping me keep track of that pic.
The Fender Heavy pics are nice and sturdy in my fingers, and I don't like the lighter kinds (including the Fender, and other brand's, lights & mediums) that ended up flying out of my hands when I'm playing, and they sounded tinnier, & more like a bad piece of cardboard, instead of a quiet, unnoticeable pic sound, or the professional pic sounds that pop out, now and then, and is perfectly ok to have. I'd say the biggest thing about returning to these pics is the fit feels perfect in my hand and fingers, I don't have any issues holding it. It's solid, and nothing but solid, in my hands. Doesn't slip around while I play, as some other kinds did. And it makes, no cardboard, no plasticky yucky sound, just the strings come through like a clear song. That's it. It feels great, and it sounds good to great. Simple & reliable.
Your choice may be completely different with your hands & fingers. Keep in mind also what you want for your criteria, like a loud or soft sound, and you'll find the best pic brands & styles for you. I do recommend trying a variety, just to see what one likes best. They are cheap, so for $25 you can try a wide variety. Some people do use different pics for different kinds of guitars and different songs. You can read all about that as well, I did too, and found it fascinating to read, and watch, what my favorite stars use, and why. Dave Matthews, Pete Townshend, and other stars I love use a variety of pics for different sonic effects. But in the end, for me, I found out that all I really like, and need, is the old reliable Fender Heavy pics, for my Yamaha Eterna acoustic guitar.
Now I don't use the mediums anymore, at least not for acoustic guitar playing. The heavy picks actually produce a more mellow and controlled sound, not as sensitive to poor technique, the kind of technique that I end up with after playing for an hour straight! Strangest thing is that I rarely drop these picks, unlike the mediums.
The Fender 346 will remain my go-to pick for as long as they make them, but I weigh-in heavy from now on!
You do want to have some fine sandpaper to dress up the tips and edges; a couple of hours of play can leave the edges rough and with funny burrs. I have a whetstone with a rough side and a 1000 grit polishing side that works great for cleaning up picks.
