"The cool thing about the Chrome Dome pick is that it is metal. Over the years in rock-n-roll a lot of players have used coins, stainless steel and all sorts of stuff just to get more of a pick sound and to affect the tone of the guitar. Sometimes it's exactly what you need and other times what you're looking for besides the tone is the texture and the mass of the pick as for the performance. I've used it a lot on bass, as well as guitar, when I'm looking for consistency and really fast picking and I want a really high sort of a glissando, but very short so that it's attached to the attack of the part. A regular pick isn't going to do that or you because it's going to be too smooth sounding. With the Chrome Dome it's really polished, that's what's really great about it, so it doesn't feel like you're holding on to a rough piece of metal. It allows you to play very fast mainly because it's polished so you're slipping right off the strings. Depending on how you set the amp and pickups that you use you're going to get that glissando sound with each pick that you give it. The other thing is the mass, which really matters, because it's got a lot of hunk to it. It's going to add to that chunk sound you want to get. This pick does not move, it does not flex - not one bit - which is another cool thing about it. So there's no way for it to stop you from being aggressive. This is just like the total aggro enabler pick. This is what I really like about it. I would caution you not to toss this into the audience because you'll take somebody's eye out or something like that. It'll go right into their skull and you'll lobotomize them, which isn't good - in general."more
