Finn...Yes and no. The pick material, stiffness, shape, the way you hold it, etc., all affect the attack and the amount the pick displaces the string (i.e. volume). These in turn affect the tone, as does where you play: near the bridge (bright, crisp), near the sound hole (full, rich) or near the fingerboard (softer, mellow, smooth).
