I just started using a stainless steel DR pick. It was $4, and I'm pretty sure it will last forever. I got an extra incase I lose it.

I just put a trem-stopper on mine. It works great. Check out FU-Tone. The one I got was $25. There are a few other options. The one I have prevents the bridge from floating.
