Tone is more based on thickness of the pick and sharpness/flexibility of the tip of the pick. A really thin pick is never going to sound full, and a thick one is never going 'zing'

Larry, are you referring to the Wegen "mando" model that's the same shape as the Golden Gate that's been around forever? Versus the standard Wegen 346 shape?

BTW, I met Tommy Emmanuel about a year ago, and he plays those Golden Gates.
