V-Picks Colossal

8.85mm -

Just like the Insanity, the Colossal is 100% hand made by Vinni himself. A lot of skill, love, and attitude go into making this piece of art. Each one is different and unique. If one is made and just does not have enough mojo to it, in the can it goes. When you hold a V-Pick Colossal or Insanity, you are holding a one-of-a-kind! There are over 75 grinds on this pick! It hits the grind wheel over 75 times. Each one is laser cut to size, hand ground and beveled, flame buffed, and then hand buffed on the wheel. Then, back into the laser machine for the Vinni logo, TM and name. They really are magnificent when they are done. If you play with this pick and are not inspired in some way, then something is just wrong!

Huge, thick, fat guitar pick with a huge tone! Great for rhythms and leads. Gypsy Jazz players LOVE this pick. Not only does the Colossal have a huge, fat tone... it is a beautiful pick to see and feel. It is 8.85mm thick!!!! Some might say, "How on earth do you play a pick that thick?" You'd be surprised how easy it is to get used to. Some players get pain or cramping in their hands from playing thinner picks and other problems, and this pick has been God-sent for those players. (Their words exactly.) If you have pain or cramping in your picking hand when playing with a "regular" pick, try the Colossal or Insanity from V-Picks. Once again, all V-Picks are made with our own special formula of acrylic that causes them to cling to your fingers when warmed up. Tone! Tone! Tone! That's all I have to say about these monsters. You will hardly believe your ears.

V-Picks Collosal

Over the years I've use a number heavier picks starting with homemade picks laminated from 0.5 mm Dunlops and moving to Wegan gypsy jazz, Fatones and 7's when I found them here at Djangobooks. I've also tried a number of other picks for here, each with interesting and appropriate characteristic depending on your desired sound. I recently started working on Michaels' detailed and comprehensive books Gypsy Picking and Gypsy Rhythm. I learned that I have been making a mistake by holding the pick with a "death grip" between my fingertips. The 8.85mm thickness of the Colossal makes it easy to maintain a proper relaxed grip, the point has a sharp, clear attack, and with the pick rotated towards the flat, it has made the execution of the subtle upstroke on beats 1 & 3 of the la pompe much easier. I have come to view the pick as a crucial part of the sound producing system, much like the bow of a violin and so the price is money well spent. When I played with cheap thin picks, they would wear out and I would lose them frequently. I hang on to these gypsy picks and they last for years. As always, Michael's service was excellent with my order shipping promptly.
