Pick ID Question

Question

A ways back, a parts order showed up with some promotional stuff - including a few Caparison-branded picks. I really like these and would like to order more, but can't find a match online.

Wondering if anyone here might recognize who makes them, based on their shape? Photo below shows a Dunlop next to it for comparison...

Thanks!

Good idea. I've found some similar looking (Jazz III, etc.), but not exact...

Thanks

Found this on Reverb but they definitely look like a different design with a more traditional shape. 

Caparison pick set

Ah- thanks!  The ones I have feel like 1.2mm(ish) delrin, and so these might be in the ballpark. Failing Sweetwater, I might just grab a few vaguely similar picks and find a close alternate - as I'll certainly lose my 2-3 remaining picks at some.point :)

Trace one and send it to V Pick, maybe they can make you one in that profile.

I'll guess it's something like this:

https://www.jimdunlop.com/tortex-flow-pick-1-35mm/

or this:

I alternate between a V-pick Chicken picker and a Fender 551 extra heavy celluloid.  I started out playing Fender extra heavy, and sometimes that's the only type of pick that sounds 'right' to my ear.  I did just Amazon a dozen of those two Dunlops though... always like trying something new.

You can buy them here, but you'll pay more for shipping than you will for the picks.

I'd reach out to Caparison on Reverb and ask them to list the POM No.23's you want.  Last time around they went for $2 each though.
