Serious competition for my BC and TS Picks....Charmed Life NF.90...It's "that good"!
I am simply a hobbyist with zero affiliations,but I'm really,"really" impressed with this new pick,from Charmed Life!.....I was lucky to acquire a few TS picks as gifts and in trade a while ago,but always felt that TS is a non issue,as there are new man made materials that are so close it's not necessary to even consider something that is illegal and downright bettered,by a new generation of pick makers......I LOVE my TD-40 Blue Chip picks and only tried this NF.90 as a lark,as it was gifted to me by the wife,for my birthday.I've been through a good amount of the better picks(I find the Primetones are a bargain,but still a touch plastic like tonally) and some were a disappointment to me,but that's only my opinion.No more.
So,once I got my NF.90 I gave it a whirl on my Fuller's '39 Gibson J-35 reissue,my HD-28V and my Collings OM-1A,I've now played it on my H&D TD-M Custom and my Eastman Slope too......Never did I think "this pick" could compete with the BC or TS picks,but what a nice surprise!! This NF.90 is absolutely an elite pick,if you are open to these kind of pick products,which "do" make a nice difference if you play in a quiet environment and have a good guitar......Nice snap,great tone and shows NO WEAR!! Like the fabulous BC picks,it will last a long time,I'd think!
One thing...It's gorgeous! It is so well polished and finished off that it kinda' reminds me of a jewelry product.Put a hole in it(God forbid) and wear it around your neck....It's that well finished! Originally,I felt the lack of a bevel would negatively affect it's tonal performance,but no way....Plays great and has a nice sticky feel,so no worries about slippage.
If anyone is into trying out nice picks(this one is well below it's competition pricewise) you will be impressed....I was....Enough to want to share.........Best to all.-
