The Pick of Picks
For any and all who’re obsessed with mandolin tone, below is an interesting site that compares various picks and how they sound on a mandolin. I can’t help but harken back to playing guitar with the Minnesota Mandolin Orchestra and recall how some individuals would have certain picks readily available for a given song because they were able to coax out nuances of tone. I don’t know. It must be like fine art. Hey, all of those Rembrants and Van Goghs (or is it Rem Gogh and Vanbrant?) look the same to me. And all of those mandolin picks sound the same to me. Perhaps our resident expert has a more informed perspective. But, wouldn’t that mean that he knows something? Should he then be excluded from this group?
