Fender Classic Celluloid Pick - heavy gauge
The "351 premium plectrum" from Fender is an absolute classic, an iconic plectrum is classy looking in 'tortoise shell' effect celluloid and they are available in thin , medium and heavy thickness and in various colours.
They are smooth, void of the ridges and dimples that other picks feature yet they are never slippy.
I find them the perfect size for all my electric playing, big enough for chords and still small enough for articulate picking or fast lead runs however I do find they are a little bit on the small side for acoustic strumming where I usually favour a larger thinner plectrum.
I have been using these plectrums for many years and can not see why I wold ever change, they are my absolute favourite plectrum.
Celluloid plectrums give you a more traditional feel than the more modern materials like acetal or nylon.
They have a smooth striking surface and produce a warm, more rounded musical tone.
I play mostly blues and classic rock and find they are perfect for that style of playing however they wouldn't be my first choice for more aggressive metal type music were a more modern plectrum would be more appropriate.
My playing style is quite smooth and I I find they are very long lasting, I never seem to wear them out and they are not prone to splitting like other celluloid plectrums.
