Since you are going there, what strings are you using? Do you track with a fresh set each time, or do you like them a little more played in?

What kind of mic cable? Direct patch into the recorder, or through a patch bay?

'Stock' power cable or a fancy 2" thick one on the converter?

You can see where this is headed.

Sounds like the best thing for you to do is to get out and buy every pick you can, and see what works best for you.

Personally, as a guitar player myself, I think the choices are completely determined by the context of the situation. Sometimes changing the pick is the right thing to do, sometimes changing the mic. Or, keep the pick and the mic, but change the guitar. Or keep everything, and get someone else to play it...

It can be endless...
