Hey guys, first post, so go easy 8)
So I've had a variety of wegens for a while now, including the gp250, the twins, the trimus, and a bluegrass pick. I've always found the wegens alot more difficult to use than say, a dunlop big stubby (an obviously inferior pick). The wegen always sounded alot better but the dunlop was 10x easier to play, and I would always be loud and clean. So I experimented and couldn't find a right hand position that would allow me to optimize tone consistently. Then I realized it's actually the bevel that messes me up. I suppose I play at a strange angle for the gypsy style, but I actually filed down the bevel on my gp250 today and found myself pleasantly surprised. My attack became much crisper and more dynamically consistent, and I found myself in control. I'm just wondering if I'm the only oddball on here. Does anyone else like non-pre-beveled picks? Or does anyone else sand out the wegen bevel?
