Sound — 4
It can be used on all types of guitars, but sounds best on distorted electric as it hides the awful overpowering scratching. By just sitting down and messing around a bit you'll occasionally get a note that sounds OK but overall, it doesn't sound good.

Overall Impression — 4
This product is bad. Definately not worth the 15 bucks you'll pay for it. I don't know what sound they were trying to achieve when they manufactured these things but the sound they did achieve is a scratchy, annoying one. I wouldn't buy another one if it were stolen, because they're simply a waste of money. It is unique, I'll give them that. But it really doesn't do enough to compensate for 15 dollars.

Reliability & Durability — 6
The wires can sometimes get a bit bent but that doesn't effect the sound much. I wouldn't use it on a gig at all, the bad sounds out-weigh the good.

Ease of Use — 4
The Jellifish Pick is supposed to use little metal wires to produce a different sound. Unfortunately, it also produces a scratchy noise as they rub against the strings. There is a brief pamphlet on how to use the Pick to produce different sounds but it didn't seem to help at all.
