Jacob Rozmajzl’s Blade Critique

Jacob Rozmajzl (24), a multi-instrumentalist from Richmond Virginia with a bachelors in Music Industry and experience as a sound tech & touring musician with whom we recently connected.

After spending time with blade, he came back with this response:

Blade is unlike any pick I’ve touched in my ten years as a guitarist. I like my tone to sound round with a fine point, which i’ve struggled to find in the dark tone of my les paul. I’ve used numerous effects pedals to achieve my desired sound but Blade places the tone directly in my hand. I am able to cut through my mixes while still retaining the full bodied sound I love. The ridges give the illusion of plucking the string without removing the fluidity and versatility needed when using a pick.

This model is useful particularly for guitarists playing heavy metal as is it illuminates each pitch through the wall of heavy distortion and provides a percussive impact with each stroke. The more time you spend with this pick in your hand, the more applications and possibilities will appear.

Of course we are grateful to Jacob for taking the time to test Blade and even happier that he loved the pick.
