Welcome To Wegen Pick Users Group

Hi! My name is Jed Clark and I absolutely love wegen picks! Mike Wegen doesn't endorse me or anything. He charges me what he would charge you for a pick. He isn't paying me to make this group, I am just a huge fan of his products! Check out his stuff at his website - http://www.wegenpicks.com. He makes custom picks at thickness' starting at 1mm and going up to 9mm. I have used his picks for about 6 months now and I have yet to use anything that I like better. In the many dealings I have had with Mr. Wegen he has been more than fair and very reasonable.

If you are already a Wegen user GREAT! Lets talk about technique, what pick(s) you use, got any customs? be sure to tell us about em'!

Again I am not making this group for material gain of any kind, I am just a huge fan of these excelent products!
Cheers!

Jed, I live close to Michael Wegens hometown, and about a year ago i decided to give him a call. He imediately invited me to visit his shop. He not only makes great picks but all the tools he uses where his own design.And he is a great guy. (btw i payed like you for the picks) I use the bluegrass wegens.On the other hand i never had a chance to use tortoiseshell picks. I heard they are great too.

Got my Wegen Bluegrass 1.0 in the mail yesterday. Got to say I like em! The slightly wider oval than the standard 751's was the only thing I had to get over, but the clarity and tone and volume of this thing is unreal. Matches the tone and volume of anybody's medium pick, but is thick for picking. Strumming is not as easy as with a thin pick, just have to learn pick control. I think I've found my pick for this guitar.

I'm s msjot fan of Wegen picks. I've used Red Bear and they are very nice. I bought mine when they were new and $15 and ocassionally, Dave would run some sales. Blue Chip's seem to be the rage right now, but I won't pay $35 for a pick.
I use the white w/ speed holes and think that I get as good a tone as with anything else. I've heard some people say that they lije the black ones better, but the ease of finding a white one is why I'll stick with white. A great product and they seem to last forever. Count me in as a fan. Art

It is funny that so many people say that the black ones are better. I do notice a slight difference in the white vs. black. But Mr. W himself says on his site there is no difference in material, just color.

Weird...

My Wegen of choice is the white 1.0 mm Bluegrasspick (with holes). Great grip, great tone and they are loud!

Hey and Happy New Year to all the Wegenites out there! I just wanted to extend an invite to a show we're hosting this Saturday - 23rd of January - at Ashland Coffee and Tea. It's the first annual Djangoary Music Soiree - an evening of music celebrating the great Gypsy guitarist, Django Reinhardt! The bands will feature some of the best in the region - Gypsy Roots, The Rick Olivarez Trio, and The Hot Club of DC! We'll also be doing a post-gig jam session too so if you're coming bring your axe! For more info check out the events page here - hope to see ya there! Sastipe! (good luck and good health!) - Thomas

Arthur Knowler replied to William Gray's discussion Heavy Picks Anyone?
"I have a left handed Blue Chip TAD 3R 40 pick and I find it a great pick to use, no scraping and quick on the strings. The only problem is that the tone is quite bass-y which is great for lead picking or Mandolin but not so good for rhythm…"
