Fender Classic Celluloid Pick Set - medium gauge, classic
Fender Classic Celluloid Pick Set - medium gauge, classic The "351 premium plectrum" from Fender is an absolute classic, this iconic plectrum is classy looking in 'tortoise shell' effect celluloid and they are available in thin , medium and heavy thickness and in an assortment of 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 years and can not see why I wold ever change, they are my absolute favourite pick ! 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 !
