Can you believe it? Some whiz kid came up with a pick that won't jump onto the floor or break strings on the regular at long last. You can keep your bumblebee picks, Fender mediums, Blue Chips, Wegens, Dawgs, D'Addarios, Dunlops, Tortex, Jazz3s, Gravitys, Graph Tech Tusqs, Chicken Picks, Primetones, Davas, Dragon's Hearts, ugly ass Kirk Hammetts, PPpandas, ChromaCasts, brass, aluminum, stainless steel, stone, 'tonewood', 351s, fat triangles, tiny pointy ones, sharkfin shaped, whatever. It doesn't matter. These will blow them all away. Your current pick is a just a P.O.C. compared to these new picks. You're playing junk and you don't know it. Do yourself a favor and get with the times and get you some modern picks and stop busting yer strings at all those high paying gigs (16 in three weekends, dude!) and join the real guitar players.
Get you some



Just in time for Friday

I don't see any difference in the material, but the extra thing sticking out seems useful. I would try it out if I could.
The material is Delrin, lots of brands use it

My bumblebee picks allow me to pick with the pick, and use all of my fingers for finger picking. This does not. Seems really limited.

what an absolutely awful way to hold a pick. Are you supposed to do nothing but strum cowboy chords and all the movement comes from your elbow and shoulder? Just beat and hack at the strings?

Sure hope you don't use your wrist with a pick positioned like that, or do leads, or sweep, or anything requiring finesse or dexterity or nimbleness.

That's just bludgeoning all 6 strings at once while doing cowboy chords.

well, you're wrong. What do you know anyways? I'd show you the error of your ways but I have to go pick up my loser band so they can play all my equipment on a gig they have nothing to do with so I don't have time.

I don't have a problem breaking strings.

if you do it's most likely not the pick.

More silly guitar marketing stuff. Like special rags to wipe your strings.
I've been playing for 300 years, I've been doing this too long to actually work on a common sense solution.

I'se gonna say, folded matchbook covers get all soft and nice; liking the watermelon idea.

This'd be good for getting an orange started...

Matchbooks have crappy tone, everyone knows that. Maybe a matchbox that had maple stick matches in it, but Eric Johnson says that that ends up sounding too bright so...

I’ve actually never broken a string and I play ham handed. Now I’ll break mine tonight but it ain’t cuz of the pick.
