Summary of StoneWorks Picks

This review has been really fun to write. Here is the summary of the individual characteristics that I look at for every product.

1. Delivery and Packaging: 5 out of 5 stars. Sent as expected, in bubble wrap mailer. I have to question a bubble wrap mailer, my goodness they are made out of stone what could happen, they get dropped? Their website tells you not to drop them on concrete.

2. Visual Appearance: 5 out of 5 stars. Cool looking picks. Just like any other cool looking stone. Great variety.

3. Construction: 5 out of 5 stars, Best stone picks I have ever felt in my life. I am very honored that I have the ability to do this review.

4. Ease of use: 4 ½ out of 5 stars. I am giving this 4 ½ stars due mainly to the learning curve from using a regular pick

5. Tone: 5 stars out of 5 stars. Tone from these picks is really neat. It gets the tone that it says it will get.

6. Communication: 5 out of 5. Great guy to communicate with, easy and returns emails quickly.

7. Value: 4 out of 5 stars. This was a very hard value to assign. The picks start at around $25 and go up from there. If you are prone to losing picks on a frequent basis, these picks can be a very expensive proposition.

Guitarists are always in search of the ultimate tone. Seeing that most guitarists use a pick that is 0.08% or less of the value of their guitar, it is now evident to me that this is the most overlooked aspect of tone. $25 may be a lot to spend on a pick, but we do not hesitate to spend $100, $200 or more on a new effect, or even more on a new amp or guitar. The tone circuit starts at the pick, goes through the guitar, the effects, the cable, the amp and the speakers. Any weak point can be a weak point.

Taking the previous comments into consideration, $25 does not seem much for a cable? Maybe high for a pick, but certainly well worth the cost.

Overall Rating 4.8 out of 5 stars. Beautiful picks, excellent tone, takes some getting used to, a tad bit pricey compared to standard cheap-o picks, but well well worth it.
