I'm not that cheap! It's more some kind of strange satisfaction about getting free things from the internets. I did it with tea once too, and a bunch of other crap although i think out of all the stuff i signed up for only the teas arrived . I think it said only one per household but i've done it 3 times now though.

Anyway if i get these dunlop picks i've emailed them about then i do deserve some kind of an award, i can't believe they'd charge 42 dollars for a brass pick..

Especially if they're cheap goods, companies love sending out free sample to reviewers, even if it's just an unemployed kid in his mom's basement with a blogger account. Virtually free publicity.

Well i thought this too, i mentioned that i post on UG to Chris at gravity picks and he said it would be good if i posted about how ifind it in here when it get it, which i will. I thought this too tbh, if i do find it worthwhile then i could happily replace my current jazz 3s or at least buy others as a backup.

Chris from Gravity Picks sent me a pick, it's quite good. Needless to say I asked for one because everyone loves free stuff off the internet.

For picks I think it's genuinely more worthwhile to buy them in bulk off eBay or something. There's something very satisfying about holding a bag full of plectrums.

Dayum, what a way to make a bit of a profit if you sell that $40 pick on.
I feel bad to ask for free stuff.

But I have literally no money at the same time...it's a hard life.

I'm sure it costs less than a cent to produce a single regular pick (especially for a big company like Dunlop), so they'd probably have no problem giving out free picks as samples.

If anything they probably gain more from this, as they are getting their product out there, and the fact that you guys are talking about them as a result of the free samples over a busy internet forum is a big plus.

I would love a free sample of a v pick though

Thank you for your email! I will be happy to send you out some samples of the picks. I have added a couple others I thought you may like to try out. Such as the fairly new Jazz lll Ultex 2. and the Tlll in 1.35 and 1.5 gauges. They will mail out Monday morning. Please allow 2-3 weeks for delivery. The following are the contact names and telephone numbers for the distributors in the United Kingdom that we are currently work with. Please feel free to contact them to order any of the products you require from the Dunlop Product line. If you have any problems, please do not hesitate to contact us:

Hi, i've always been a fan of your products i was wondering if you could send me a free sample of one of your guitars, specifically the Melody Maker , as seen here on your website
http://www2.gibson.com/Products/Ele...lody-Maker.aspx with free postage of course (or it wouldn't be a free sample right?!)

I've always been a fan of your guitars like i say, ever since i heard my dad playing his les paul studio i've liked gibsons, and now that i'm starting to get better at my own playing and have started a band i know that it's time to get serious about it all. I've always loved the melody maker too, and Billy Gibbons got his start in music by using one, and he's one of my all time guitar heros to say the least!

I'd love to hear back from you about this, my postage address is below

Hi, as a long time fan of your products i was wondering if i could be sent a Classic Series '50s Telecaster for free as a free sample , ideally with free postage too obviously (it wouldn't be free if i had to pay a lot of money at the door!). As seen on your website here http://www.fender.com/en-GB/product...rtno=0131202303

I've been playing the guitar for years in my own music and in a band but i've recently decided to get serious about tone, and after thinking about this, i realise that all of my musicial heros play telecasters of some kind (Keith Richards, Wilko Johnson, Nick Cave, the list goes on), i would love to hear back from you about this!

My postage address is as follows:
