Red Bear Guitar Pick - Review

Finally received a guitar pick from Red Bear, and it
was definitely worth the wait. It's the 2.0mm Classic II model with the speed bevel which beats the regular Dunlop picks on every level. This pick is not only
comfortable in your hand, but is terribly difficult to drop while playing because of the holes in its center, and this is coming from someone who has nearly put people's
eye out many a time with flying picks; haven't dropped this one even once. Another thing that's really cool about these is they don't wear down like a normal pick, so you don't have to worry about a new pick without a speed bevel or adjusting to the wear on your pick. This allows, once you familiarize yourself with the pick, to play with much more accuracy and precision. Finally, while tone is subjective, many would
argue that this brings a richer sound with more clarity than most production
picks. There's an audio example below where you can hear for yourself which sounds
better to your ears. The first example is the Red Bear pick and the second is a 2mm
Dunlop pick. The only downside to this pick is the price ($28.50 w/ shipping) and
wait (It took 4 months).
