After a week, Dunlop hasn't responded, they've probably caught on.

What's Claytons picks email address?

24 picks from Dunlop arrived today in the mail. I doubt that they've caught on. One of those picks is a metal pick that says Pat Pend on it.

I'll try to get pics to prove it if you guys want.

From Dunlop I got a sample of each gauge of their metal picks, as well as a few Herco picks. Fender sent me a bumper sticker, a big bag of picks (ok, not big, but theres like 25 picks in there at least), and a t-shirt. I asked daddario to try their electric strings, since I already like their acoustic strings. They misread my message though, and sent me a set of acoustic strings (which I already use and love). I told them that, and then they sent me a set of electrics. So I got 2 packs of strings out of them. I got my Cactus Picks awhile ago, but that was before I saw this thread (i believe I was the first to mention them here, actually. So you're welcome, newfound cactus pick lovers).

How?

Got two gravity picks .75 for guitar and 1.5 for bass. Really great picks. Feel much nicer than nylon dunlop picks and are much smoother. The raised logo (on one side) makes them feel very classy. You can't do much with a bit of plastic but Gravity have definitely maxed out a plectrums potential. I will buying more for sure.

I prefer the material to dunlops nylon and tortex picks.

How?

This is the email I sent them:
Hi,
I've been a Fender man since I started playing guitar. I use a Tele through a Fender Stage 100 DSP amp, and I love them both! I would love to support your company further by advertising with Stickers, Posters, TShirts, etc., or any other promotional items you may have.
Thanks!

Yes very lucky. I tried it with Dunlop and they said they don't send out free stuff. I then sent another about 3 months later from my wife's email account when I went to complain about bad strings that I seemed to be getting and they wouldn't even send me free replacements on just the B and E strings I needed.

This doesn't really involve emailing, but when you order strings from juststrings.com (amazing site btw), they come with a baggie of free picks. Five .71mm nylons.

So everyone who has got free stuff...

what do you actually say in the emails?
Do you put your address in the first mail, or only if they answer you and offer free stuff?

Pics or didn't happen


Also, I honestly think that manufacturers are aware of this thread.

They don't respond when I ask anymore...

Free picks? Hell yea.

Where ever they ****ing go, whatever wormhole they disappear into, into what dimension they materialise, I'll never know.

But it's good to get some back. Like karma or some cosmic gift.

Jesus Christ, I just read all 44 pages of this.

Emailed - asking for/about
Planet Waves - picks and a steel slide
Clayton - picks and a ceramic slide
Dunlop - felt and metal picks and a brass slide
Ernie Ball - picks and cobalt strings
Peavey - picks and promo gear
Schecter - a tshirt
EMG - picks and promo gear
Cactus picks - picks
Gravity Picks - picks
V-picks - picks
Impact picks - picks
Gibson - promo gear/fishing for a guitar (dream big right?)

No responses yet as its 4am but ill let you know what comes of it. Don't feel one bi bad about asking for any of it, either I'v used their products and want to know more about other products or I genuinely am interested in their products either way it's a win win for both myself and the company.

so odd. i was considering changing pick size this year.
contacted them and they sent out a variety pack for me to
try.
was pretty nice of the woman running customer service.

Heard back from Planet Waves, V-Pick, and Impact Picks by the time I got out of my 9am class. Impact straight up asked me to send mailing info, while Planet Waves and V-Pick both linked me to places to buy their products (although Planet Waves did give me a good rundown on Glass vs. Metal slides)

Planet Waves got back to me again very quickly, A+ for customer service and said I should expect some samples from them in a few days. (Fingers crossed for a slide)

V-pick linked me to their PA retailers but they are both over 3 hours away so hopefully ill hear back from them about some samples

And Ernie ball sent me some info on the cobalt strings and linked me to testimonials about them. Asked for a set to try on the off chance they will send me one.

Looks like Dunlop, Impact Picks, Planet Waves, and EMG are sending me picks so far.

Also as to whether or not to include your address in the initial email, I'd say that's a bit presumptuous, however what I would do is include it in your emails signature like professional types, so that way they still get the information, but it's something that gets sent in every email regardless, not like you typed it in askin them to send you stuff.

Cool, I just sent dunlop an email, they replied they are sending me some teckpicks and jazz III's to the U.K.

Edit: and I emailed at around 12:10 AM UK time, they emailed back within minutes! I just said I usually use tortex picks, would it be possible to try out some teckpicks and jazz IIIs. They was very friendly in the reply.
