      You can't play metal music with plastic pics! The tone and volume are awesome. Just enough flex and they never wear out or crack. The only reason that I ever buy new ones are because they get lost or stolen. Try one and you will never use plastic again.

      Comments about Ice Pix Copper Flex Guitar Picks 3-Pack:

      I have been looking for metal picks for years, no one carries them in-store any more, but here they are.

      I still have one or two copper picks from the late 70s that have hundreds of hours on them, with little sign of wear.

      I ordered a pack of each type. These new style have + and - sides.

      On the + side:
      Nice grip, less likely to slip out of your fingers (I *perspire* LOL).
      Edges are nicely finished.
      On the - side:
      They are too thick
      They have NO flexibility.

      Having said that, the thickness and stiffness can be an advantage in many applications, I'm glad they are available.

      However, the stiffness makes "strumming" a questionable practice, assuming you would even do it with these. Okay if you want to really dig in, but don't go crying about broken strings. The Lights should have more "give" to them. Just make sure you have "a supple wrist." In other words, don't try playing the rhythm parts on "Pinball Wizard" with these babies (or any hard pick).

      The thickness will not be a problem in a lot of cases, but my right hand technique for lead is accuracy- and speed-driven.

      The older picks are thinner. You don't have to move the pick as far to get back and forth across the string (this is miniscule, but it makes a difference) and if you are not pressing with a lot of force, they do not bend, which makes the flexibility a non-issue. When you need to dig in hard, you just angle them slightly so they aren't perfectly parallel to the string.

      Since the older ones are slightly flexible, they can be used with care for strumming when you don't have time to switch picks.

      I welcome the improvements in the new ones, but I wish they would make a thinner copper version.

      I think I'm going to try to come up with an accurate abrasion method to thin the copper ones 30-50%. If I'm successful, I will have exactly what I was looking for.

      Awsome Guitar Picks

      Comments about Ice Pix Copper Flex Guitar Picks 3-Pack:

      These picks are unbreakable which is a good thing. I prefer a light pick because I play lead guitar. Never did like heavy pick unless I was playing bass in the studio or something. But I got to say these picks have an amazing sound. The copper helps with a little more attack and bite. If you compare them to a stainless steel pick the copper has some mids to it as well but the steel has alot more bite to it due to the different metals. Very glissando sounding justs slides across the strings. Doesnt take long to break in and you will get a grip built up fairly quickly, but if you sweat alot your fingers will turn a different color due to the corosion of the pick. No big deal but man they sound amazing and they a very light (weight wise) and they flex. Highly Recommend to anyone wanting a sound more clarity and bite.

      Review of Copper Flex Guitar Picks 3-Pack (Brass, Stainless Steel, Copper & Steel)

      from Citrus Springs, Florida

      Comments about Ice Pix Copper Flex Guitar Picks 3-Pack:

      As most guitarists/musicians play a variety of music and sounds, any additional "aid" that would enhance their over all performance (or feeling for that matter) is always a plus no matter how you look at it. To a guitarist, picks are like anything else within our "inventory"; as wit the guitar instrument, you can "never have enough" and likewise, with the various peripheral aids. picks, string bos, capo's, (how bout' the varied type/guage of "strings" ??? Tey all play a part towards our musicial goal of "good sounds" (and maybe even something that sounds "different" but fits our mood and the feelings of the listener. Again, as with our "Guitars," picks (to me) fall in that same category in that with all their multitude of design, shape and material - "you can never have enough."
      I specifically ordered up the entire 4 varied "metal" picks by the manufacturer - Ice Pix - to provide their individual "feel" and "sound" characteristics as used on a variety of guitars: Washburn Resonators - R15RCE & R45RCE, Cimar 12-string (Acoustic-only & non-electric), Ibanez AK95DHS and Ibanez AF75TDG Hollow body Electric (with and w/o Tremolo). And last-but-not-least (one of my favorites - the Washburn J28SCE Acoustic-Electric; I specifically left out testing them on the Gold Tone ES-Banjitar 6-String Electric; All 4 picks had their own specific "sound and tone" generation regardless of the type instrument they were used/played on; going from a soft, subdued and "mellow" sound to an obvious change to "much brighter" and vibrant sound; the later being the "Copper" and "Steel" picks (NOT THE STAINLESS STEEL). somewhat surprising to me was the difference in sound relative to the Brass and Stainless which I felt would (to me anyway) is normally somewhat Mellow but, very obviously clear and much more "loudness" effect. This was not the case at all. The 2 "Loudest" metal picks were, in order but very, very similar, the Copper and Steel; with the Steel edging out on the increase in brightness and higher tone level (but again, not by much over the Copper). No matter, I quickly ordered up another entire set of all 4 to add to my existing sets to assure they were all available for each instrument should I need a specific "sound/tone" that I now know will be there. The only "Down" to any of them is that they only come THREE to A PACK!!!! I would think that the manufactured is definitely making a killing on their profit margin for these picks, however, in my estimation, I would purchase them no matter just to insure that I cover all bases of sounds that I would be able to produce at a given time. To me, apiece seems a little on the high side to me. I think any musician would be happy to have them ALL in their respective cases - just in the case the need arises for a sound that "you know" is there with a specific type pick. You'll be happy to have them; buy all 4 types - Its a small price to pay for the sound you know and expect.
      Obviously - all were made to exact specifications with quality-enhanced materials.
      As mentioned already, a much-needed item within your case however, a little skimpy on the quantity provided for the price. The value in terms of "sound capability" would be a "10" - no question about it.

      I love these picks! I got one from a guitar store, and kept it for about 3 months before I lost it. I found it again, only to lose it again. THEY ARE AWESOME! The best pick I have used yet. I highly recommend them.

      Most Epic Picks Ever

      Comments about Ice Pix Copper Flex Guitar Picks 3-Pack:

      I bought these picks, because, well, I was curious. I didn't realize they would be so thin! I love these picks to death. I love how rigid it is for its width. They get a mean tone. Great for clean blues or sharp clean country pickin' or uber-gain heavy metal. Next time i buy these picks, I'll get a bulk order. I've only lost one after having them for about a month (which is a miracle) and the one I lost just so happens to be stuck inside my amp. (I've no idea how it happened) Basically, these picks are the best iv'e ever used. They may be a little rougher on some strings, and I don't recommend them for use with acoustics with medium strings. But seriously, BUY THESE PICKS!

      A great pick

      Comments about Ice Pix Copper Flex Guitar Picks 3-Pack:

      I use a couple different picks as I play. A light plastic pick for nice strumming stuff but, when I'm really digging in and I'm gonna rake the strings, I pull out one of these copper picks. I didn't really like the sound at first,( metalic) but I adjusted my grip to get a better tone (still a little metalic but not so harsh). I've had this pick a few years now and aside from losing its pack mates, its been very reliable, well constructed even though its been through all the abuse I can throw at it. I am starting to wear some grooves in the side of it and its getting time to order more. And I will. Does'nt sound good on acoustic guitars but works well on a light drive electric and beyond that. With all that, its really a matter of personal taste and what works for you but, you never know unless you step out and try something different.

      Comments about Ice Pix Copper Flex Guitar Picks 3-Pack:

      I've used many different types and styles of picks on my bass and these copper picks give me the sweet metallic sound I love! I've been using them for years and the only problems I have is that my bass strings eventually shred them as with most picks but what the heck, they are BASS strings and the fact that I can find them nowhere but here(local stores dont carry them). Excellent for those who want a little more metal to thier sound.

      I love these picks. They sound great. But they're really hard on guitar strings. I literally get only a few hours of play before I have to change a string.

      Finally I found Some

      Comments about Ice Pix Copper Flex Guitar Picks 3-Pack:

      I bought several of these over 15 years ago. I gave some away to friends who loved them. I kept 3 and lost 2. I watch the last one like a hawk. I have looked in every music shop I can find. I got some stainless, but it is not the same. I get to picking fast, and sometimes the plastic picks don't come back fast enough unless I use a heavy pick, but thin feels better. 10 years of heavy use and my last pick has a slight hook in it where I use it for chirps. The end is more rounded, but I still play quicker with it than anything else. Costs a lot, but try to get 10 years from a plastic pick. You decide if it is worth it, I am stocking up today.
