    Default Primetone triangle picks - what is their width/?

    I can't find this information in their product description.

    By width I mean the distance of a line from one of the triangle points through the middle of the pick to the middle opposite base.

    For example, a Wegen TF140/120 etc is 32mm or 1-1/4".

    That's perfect for me.

    Can anyone tell me what the equivalent is on Primetone triangle picks?

    Thanks!

    Hi Bren - I just measured one of mine,a flat 'printed' Primetone type & it's the same as your Wegen 1-1/4". However,i think that they make a small triangular pick as well,but mine's the larger one,

    Yep, I measured my large Primetone as well at 1 1/4".

    I picked up one of the small triangles at a music store and I'd be surprised if it's bigger than 3/4". The big triangle is the way to go (for me).

    As soon as I "discovered" the rounded triangle shape of pick I was hooked. I haven't played with anything else since. R/
    I love hanging out with mandolin nerds . . . . . Thanks peeps ...

    You want the Prime Tone Sculpted 513P. They come in 1.4 and 1.5 mm thicknesses. The 1.4 is the same size and shape as the Wegen TF 140.
