Been using these for years. They are always consistently good.I used to use the Fender 346 Extra heavy, but Fender stopped making the extra heavies. Looking for a replacement, I found these and never went back.When I bought the Fender picks, they were inconsistent from batch to batch, so I'd have to buy a gross to find a dozen or so that had good clean geometry and smooth points.Because these D"Andrea products are so consistent, That is never a problem. I'f I buy a dozen, I can use them all.1.5 MM is plenty stiff enough.Yes they are deeply embossed and that does help with gripping them securely. I also drill a hole in the center which really helps them stay in place once you find your sweet spot.For a while, I labored under the false impression that pointier picks were "more accurate" or somehow "faster" than regular picks. Boy was that stupid.My guitar teacher showed me how mandolin players do some of the fanciest speed picking, alternate picking ad tremolo picking on the planet. Then he showed me the type of rounded-tip picks those guys use... like these.The difference is immediately noticeable. You can actually hear more fundamental tone. Changing the angle really gives a difference in tones.Picks are so low-profit, most big manufacturers don't care about making them well. They just use them as an advertising platform.And because picks are cheap, I didn't think much about quality until I found these. ALL the D'Andrea picks are consistent, produce good tones and they are not crazy-expensive like Wegan picks or hand made stone picks.You should at least try some of these with your next order just to see why so many pros use them. You might find out what I did.

these are very soft, hence produce a deadening effect on an acoustic, they sound nothing like real tortoise. Really they might be the furthest of any pick on the market from the real thing. Tone is a matter of taste, every pick has a place somewhere, this one to me is useless as it will diminish all the qualities you likely selected your instrument for. It will give you a different tone, one that has a weaker dead blow attack and your guitar will sound muddier, with very little treble. perhaps this is good for mandolin, I seldom play it. I have real tortoise, and all the boutique picks, and frankly against even well chosen mass produced picks like this, these are a waste of time and tone to my ear and my guitars. Hope that helps.

Comments about D'Andrea Pro Plec Rounded Triangle Picks - One Dozen:

After watching videos about other brands and models ie: V-picks, Dunlop Jazz III, Clayton Ultem picks, etc I decided on these. Wise desicion! These picks sound FAT and clear at the same time.I saw a review on these about being mushy, I don't think so.They're a bit pricey but for the quality and sound of these picks they worth every penny!

Pro Plec is One Smooth Player

By LookBothWays

from Wichita Falls, TX

Comments about D'Andrea Pro Plec Rounded Triangle Picks - One Dozen:

The D'Andrea Pro Plec Rounded Triangle glides off each string with precision thanks to smooth, beveled edges. The 1.5mm thickness is perfect and the larger traingle is easier to hold onto with your hand cramping. The surface isn't nearly as "deeply embossed" as they would have you believe. A little more grippability would be nice, but this is an excellent pick with very nice tortoise striations and coloring.I have tried many different picks looking for a smooth bluesy tone, without the cheap pick "click" or a pick that digs into the strings. The D'Andrea 1.5mm Pro Plec Rounded Triangle beats out my Tor-Tis pick, several 1-2mm acetal polymer picks, my Dunlops, and a Cow Horn pick.

Comments about D'Andrea Pro Plec Rounded Triangle Picks - One Dozen:

This pick is one of the worst picks I've ever used. To compare this pick to a "genuine" tortoise shell indicates they have never played with a genuine tortoise shell pick.

      Over the years I have been through many types of picks. V-picks most recently (too chirpy!),Dunlop, Fender..you name them,I've tried it.
      I've finally settled on these, love the tone, the feel and how well they hold up.
      Give these a try!

        Comments about D'Andrea Pro Plec Rounded Triangle Picks - One Dozen:

        Just started using the D'Andrea rounded triangle pick for flat picking. Digs into the strings nicely and rounds out the tone on the acoustic 6-string, I use. I've always like the sound and feel of of the 351 regular, but I probably will use the 'Big Pick' more on the 6-string. It also has a nice substantial feel to the hand...a lot to hold on to.

                Comments about D'Andrea Pro Plec Rounded Triangle Picks - One Dozen:

                I use this pick more than anything else. It does have a "dark" quality that will compliment some instruments, but not others. I think it's great for mandolin, with the perfect contour and a very smooth polish that lasts a long time for this kind of material, though not as tough as the Primetone and the Blue Chip. One thing I like is that it's not pre-beveled. It's just a nice smooth consistent thickness, which really helps fast playing for me. I also like the Dunlop opaque Primetones, which are brighter, but I actually like to take the bevel off those and re-shape them a little to match the Pro Plecs.

                Service and delivery comments:

                delivery was fine... they're flat!

                  I ordered the D'Andrea Pro-Plec pick at the same time I ordered the Dunlop 1.4mm "Primetone". This is a 1.5mm pick and with it's beveled edges, just slides off the strings sounding so good! I personally like the thicker picks, and there are a few more styles that I want to try....but as of right now the D'Andrea Pro-Plec and the Dunlop Primetone are my two favorite picks.

                    Been playing for 13 years, tried every pick imaginable. Got these in 1.5mm and they sounded so dull, dark, and dead. Don't waste your time on these, get a set of Primetones or go with real shell if you truely want the best.

                                I tested out a couple dozen types of picks on mandolin, including Wegen, Dunlop Primetone, Blue Chip, etc. I settled on these picks, factoring in price in addition to sound and comfort. The triangle shape makes a big difference to me - I think it feels less like it's falling out of my hand, which in turn makes my had looser and makes it easier to adjust the pick angle. I also prefer the darker tone of the Pro Plec. It'll definitely be my primary pick on the mandolin.

                                I play the mountain dulcimer, too, and was pleasantly surprised how the pick sounds on there, too. Not your typical dulcimer pick, but I'll definitely add it to the mix.

                                  Works well on steel and nylon.

                                      I use this pick on both my HD28 steel and my ACS SA slim nylon. They hold a bevel well and the embossed logo is just enough, but not too much to grip. Switched from the delrins I had been using for over ten years.

                                        D'Andrea picks make the 'Dawg' pick if I remember correctly. I used the 'Dawg' for several years but found that a more triangular was in order. On my quest to find my 'go to' mando pick, I decided to purchase these to try as well as having less expensive back up picks on hand. I like the feel of the pick but like the 'Dawg' not fond of the 'dark' tone it produces. Great quality and great price and perhaps the right pick for certain folks. I'm still happy to have them as part of my growing collection of plectrums!
