They’re the cheapest part of the tone equation after your hands, but picks have a profound effect on tone.
Relatively soft materials such as celluloid produces a flatter tone than stiff nylon picks, which can enhance snap and clarity. Super-thick picks are good for single-note speed and articulation, but lose out in general usability because they can be awkward to strum with.
Similarly, a more pointed or rounded tip can sound respectively sharper or duller – seriously! Try using a metal pick too.
