they wear them out a little faster but they wont really cause too much damage.

i dont see a point in a metal pick since its usually the strings that break before the pick, and picks cost less even if they do break... so no point really

Its to get a different sound. Metal on metal produces a different 'click' than celluloid on metal..

I dont think it does , i went to my cousins house for a week once, he had a nice guitar that he doesnt play, and i didnt have picks, so i used quarters. Sounded sweet ( I sometimes use them instead o picks now) and didnt mess up his rusted strings.

I don't know about anyone else, but my celluloid picks really take a beating, and wear down fast. With a metal pick (apart from the sound difference) you can keep it pointy and it won't wear down for a long while. That's if you like pointy picks; I do, and I can't wait to get a metal pick. Plus, I'd be willing to bet it's stronger than a normal pick... I doubt it would bend so easily.

uhhhh.... how? A pick hitting the finish is a pick hitting the finish, reguardless of waht teh pick is made of. Besides, pickmarks and worn in guitars are sexy.


EDIT: to the guy above. Yeah, ive got couple, adn they wear longer and have NO flex. Theyre also kinda hard to grip if your hands are the least bit sweaty.

i use metal picks,, it doesnt make a difference to the string's quality. If your using an EB string.

a metal pick mark across the front of a nice guitar would look like crap.

TS try them, if ur carefull when u play and like the different tone, then buy a few.

and to the other guy who likes pointy picks;
buy regular picks and use an exacto knife, or scissor to clip them pointy. that's what i do.

the point is that metal will dig into the finish a lot deeper and a lot faster than celluloid would

Give 10 UGers a rope and ask them to pull. 4 will push, 1 will ask for buttsecks, 2 will tell you get an Ibanez and the last 3 will start complaining about Line6 Spiders.
