Can't believe that in all the time I've spent here I've never seen this thread; it's a way cool idea. Throwing some in....got a buddy who's endorsed by a company called Cactus Picks.....grips for days. I'm a pick junkie and use different ones for different things; heavy V Picks for metal and lighter ones for blues.....I use these for tight lead lines...they're very small and so grippy it's almost painful. I can almost guarantee you'll never drop one. The giveaway is on the left, and a regular Fender sized pick on the right for size comparison. Got a pack of 20 I'll throw at whoever wants them...PM me your info and I'll get them to you. USA only please, thanks.


Do you have any of the regular (Fender) sized ones? If so, I'd appreciate a couple of them. I'm in Canada but would gladly stump up for postage costs (should only cost about a buck to send an envelope here though).

SERIOUSLY....they're so grippy it almost hurts, huh? I go back and forth between picks throughout the day, and I've had those almost 6 months; STILL a shock when I grab one.:laugh2:

Spent some time with one this evening.
2 things I noticed right away, other than my finger & thumb getting poked :shock:
1You have to be a little more accurate (which I like cause sometimes I get sloppy)
2 Pinch harmonics are hard to avoid :wow:
Give me a little more time, & I could get used to these:cool:

Hey everyone, I'm new to the site and this was the first thread that I stumbled upon- and I have to say I'm a sucker for collecting picks, I have wooly mammoth ivory picks ( not for trade ) and a lot of other picks I've collected over the years, so I'm in!! I'll put in some stone picks ( jazz and standard size ) a stylus pick ( remember those? Speed picking trainer picks ), I have a bone pick around too. If you have a cool harder to find pick let me know. Thanks, Cory

Thanks to WGS - the Fender Mediums arrived in the mail earlier today and I'm really liking them.

Welcome!

I had never heard of the Stylus pick so had to look it up. Interesting concept and I'm curious how well it actually worked.

I'd like to offer my machining services for free to those members in need of pick-edge resurfacing.

I'd be glad to grind down and put a freshly shaped edge on anyone's favorite pick.

I realize that it's often hard or impossible to replace "that one" pick that a guitarist bonds with and, just like frets, there's usually no need to replace it the first few times it gets worn down. A little cleaning up of the edge is usually all that's needed.

Also, for those of you who are disappointed in the "vintage accurate" edges of modern picks (and who wouldn't be?!) I'm glad to shave them down to a truly accurate vintage style edge. I've got a great collection of vintage picks, which I've taken actual micrometer measurements from, and microscopic images of, which I can use to re-shape modern picks to. Let's call this service "Historipick Makeovers" for the sale of simplicity!

Please, though, understand that the demand for this precise and time consuming work, especially offered free, will be immense for me so I must limit this to one pick per member, per year. If you have two (say consecutive serial numbered picks or a book matched set of wooden picks), I understand and will make an exception and re-edge both for you. I just need everyone to be reasonable with the expectations as I have a full-time business to run.

Just pay postage both ways, and I'll provide the work for free.

Great thread! Glad to be able to contribute to it!


PS - Lefties!! Offer up your used picks to other right-handed members instead of tossing them out! They get worn down on the opposed sides and are like new to a righty!

While getting some picks together to send to wgs1230 I decided to count the picks that I have sitting around here. I figured I had a couple of hundred picks but, after counting them, I realized that I had 679 of the damned things :shock:

I'll have to get a list together so that I can post it here and get rid of some of them.

I have a bunch of large V-picks I'd like to trade one or all straight up for something more along the size of a Jazz III --- I like the Gravity Classic Mini 3, 3mm thick (22.5mm (57/64 in) wide, 24mm (15/16 in) tall).

Photos show Jazz III, Gravity Mini, and a quarter for scale.
