I picked up a few samples of your picks at the Musician's Trade fair at the St Paul Armory. All I can say is I love these picks! They feel great in the hand, stick to my fingers well, and are great for both rocking on the electric guitar or strumming the acoustic. I use various thicknesses depending on what I'm playing and all the gauges felt nice! I am a recording artist and playing guitar daily. Now I just have to get to a store that sells them :) Wish they are available everywhere. Just wanted to drop you a note to tell ya how much I love 'em! You can find out about me at www.troycastellano.com.
I've been trying to get the time to sit down and write this email, and its pretty long overdue. I wanted to give you a shout and just let you know how fantastic your picks are. I've been playing for around 13 years now, jumped around a lot of pick companies, and by chance i had found yours in my local music shop and figured i would give it a shot. That was probably a year ago, I haven't purchased a different pick brand since. We travel a lot and play different towns, and between that and practicing two to three times a week, i lose picks constantly. I buy them all the time, and i keep coming back to yours. We were using dunlops for a bit, and even though i can't put my finger on it, impacts just feel different.

I bought your picks at a local store here in South East Texas- but they ran out and I haven't found them since - until now online!!!
I LOVE these picks - they are perfect.
Thanks for sending me your jazz impact picks, I can honestly say I have settled on your jazz picks after trying hundred's of picks from different brands such as Dunlop, Ibanez, Fender, Gibson, Pickboy, JP Pearse, Red bear, Tonebones, Clayton, V-Pick etc.. and the list goes on.
The size, balanced tone, silky string release and price are all spot on. I highly recommend anyone to give them a try.
Disclaimer: I am not a stooge nor do I have any affiliation with Impact picks, I am simply satisfied with their product.
