Compared to finger picking, plectrums create a louder,
punchier sound with more focus on the higher frequencies. As there is less
dampening of the strings caused by the fingernails or tips, there is a much
larger spectrum of higher tones.
Plectrums are most commonly used for electric guitars. The
various materials, shapes and strengths influence the sound of the instrument.
Thinner plectrums produce mostly a thin sound, while thicker ones deliver a
more powerful tone. Harder materials create more overtones, while softer ones
produce more muted sounds.
