I Lov Guitars Pick Review

I Lov Guitars sells premium guitar picks online. They claim to be the “first guitar pick company to offer picks on a subscription basis (monthly, quarterly or semi-annually)”

I Lov Guitars picks are made from Acetal Delrin(R) and come in multiple gauges and shapes. Their picks have a special grind texture to prevent it from easily slipping. They have picks for acoustic and jazz guitars that all come in the color black. They also have large triangular picks which are great for beginners making it easier to grip with its large surface area.

Their subscription service is ideal for guitarists who practice several hours a day and need to constantly replace their picks. As a big bonus, they also provide free shipping worldwide on all their picks. What’s not to like about them?

I got the Assorted Guitar Picks which come in a variety of sizes, but I focused on the acoustic-specific picks:

The Pros

  • The pick material is strong, unlike some ahem, Fender picks with tortoiseshell that have literally fallen apart in my hands.
  • Tone is warm.
  • The black and white look is nice.
  • The Standard Medium 0.88 mm sounded and felt superb. Versatile for strumming and picking, warm tone, easy in the hand.
  • The Standard Medium 0.46 mm had nice tone and felt good. Would be good fit for heavy strumming.

The Cons

  • The material is so smooth and thin that you have to keep a firm grip on them. I prefer Dunlop’s raised ridges that give you a bit of grip on the pick.
  • I noticed a little plastic tab hanging off the Large Triangle 1.0mm and Standard Light 0.46 mm pick. Looks like it was just a sloppy job cutting them from the mold.
  • I’m not a fan of the Large Triangle 0.8 mm pick. The size and corner angles are exaggerated, making for large, ungainly pick. Holding it is awkward and the tone is not nearly as good as the Standard shaped picks. Can’t imagine a scenario where I would use this.

Recommendation

If you want a great pick that’ll work in lots of settings, get the Standard Medium Guitar Pick 0.88 mm.

If you want to experiment with several types, get the Assorted Guitar Picks.
