    I didn't get the Peek but a casein and resin, I have been so disappointed on prior pick orders, I'm really hoping for the best with these. Another poster kinda scared me with mention of Primetones...

    Re: Dunlop Primetone pick

    I read a lot of reviews on the Primetones so I ordered some 1.4 and 1.5mm and I don't like them at all. They were just dull and lifeless to me, I like my traditional lite 1.5mm VPick much much better...
