    These rule.

    Steve Clayton USA - Grip Guitar Picks

    Just got some today. How interesting, Clayton makes picks based on my 2 favorite animals - wolves and ravens - and they are great. Tried these new Black raven picks, and love them. Very bright, almost like a metal pick in attack and tonality, without any of the overly bright attack-y tones of metal picks. Like the best of plastic composites (70% tone) and metal (30% tone). There is just this great bell-like chime that comes when you play clean; and distorted has an improved clarity.

    Plus, large, with a tip halfway between the pointedness of a Jazz III, and the roundness of a traditional pick. They also are not slippery at all, which is great for ol' sweaty hands me.

    Didn't see the Black Ravens on there I've been using Claytons for a while now. Paul from Origin gave me a few probably 5 years ago and converted me. I don't know what kind they are but I have some black ones right now that kick all kinds of ass. Maybe ravens, I don't know

    EDIT: http://accessories.musiciansfriend.c...cks?sku=110425

    yep! That's them! Best pick I've ever used.

    I've never got on with Clayton picks, I tried the Stone series which is competing with what I typically use: Dunlop 3MM big stubbies..... I switched back to the stubbies after about a week.

    Acetals here. I absolutely love the rounded edges, they just glide over the strings. Clayton's finishing work stomps the shit out of Dunlop.

    I tried some of their Uratex (or whatever it is they call their version of Ultex) picks and wasn't terribly impressed. I'm currently using Dunlop Ultex Sharps and loving them, but what you're describing in the Black Raven sounds like something I'd really like. I might have to try a few.
