Really like brass? Need more than one? 3 pack are $5.
Gorilla Cymbolic fans have been switching over with a very positive response.
Ever so slightly softer than the steel. A favorite of Vernon Reid.

These. Are. Great. Bright, articulate, INDESTRUCTIBLE. The sound I get out of these is so cutting, I've actually had to turn the treble down on some amps. I recommend these to everybody I meet.

Brian May of Queen fame plays guitar with discountinued English coins. That's one of the facets that gives his guitar playing its distinctive tone. For those of you who have tried to repeat this (and I have, going s'far as to order one of the aforementioned coins) you know just how tedious playing guitar with a coin can be. I'm sure a lot of you who've lost or broken picks know this too. But no more! Ice Pix generate those distictively jangly tones in a more ergonomic form, complete with slits for better grip.
While the "bell like tones" promoted by the manufacturer are not stellar, and while some might not wish to pay $5 for three picks,rwst assured, it will be a very, very, very long time before you'll have to buy another pick. This is because metals, unlike plastic, don't wear away very quickly.
The brass Ice Pix are like playing with a typical "heavy" plectrum. People who prefer thinner picks should look elsewhere.

This pick is great! The metal pick gets rid of the clicking sound that you get when using a plastic pick. I would highly recommend these picks if you are a serious guitar player.

I've use copper and brass picks for over 30 years. Before that I had favoured turtle shell. But these are super long wearing, have a slight contour and perforations for improved grip. For precision, speed, sharpness these picks are hard to beat. Relatively not cheap, but a single pick will last years. They may not be for everyone, but if you're feeling like you're missing something in the picks you're using, I suggest you try these..

I Love This Pick!!! I have tried many plastic picks and have always been frustrated by how quickly they wear out. Plus you get a collection of pick dust on your guitar, under the strings, which is difficult to clean. The ICE PIX is awesome. It holds up well, makes a beautiful (subtle) chime tone, improves control and accuracy. The pick feels more secure in my hand. I haven't dropped one yet (6 months). The color starts off shiny, but fades with use, creating a weathered and personal look, reflecting your finger placement on the pick. The Brass PIX are similar in thickness to a medium plastic pick - I find works well with .09 guitar strings. The Stainless Steel PIX are like a heavy plastic pick which I like better with .10 guitar strings or Bass guitar. The Steel PIX do shred your strings. I have not had excessive string wear with the Brass. The Copper PIX is the light version - a little too light for my taste - feels like it is bending as you play. Don't let the $5 price for 3 picks scare you off. It is well worth it as these picks will last longer than 1000 plastic picks.
