I just noticed that the pick I am using now is rigid-y around the edges. Obviously picks are not made this way. This is the first time I notice this on any of my picks, and I've gone through a lot of them, but is this supposed to happen over time or is it just me? I'm starting to think I have to change picks more often than I thought now.

So how is your pick right now? and nobody better change the p's to d's

Yeah, that's what happens when plastic continually hits metal. I'm using a v-pick which is pretty indestructible.
I don't give a shit if you listen to me or not

Mine have done that too. They're fine, it doesn't really effect any thing.

The one I was using ealier is pretty worn down but it generally depends which pick I find in my gig bag. Some are years old some haven't been used.

They're made from a hard acryllic plastic and cost 4 bucks a pop. I've gotta a medium sized thinner version (normal is 2.75mm, lite is 1mm). I'm gonna order a few like I have now, but with sharper points.

My favorite pick (a dunlop 1.00 MM light blue one) is like blunt now. It's more like a quarter now
I need to go pick up some more.

I lately threw away 12 picks because the edges where all scraped off. They are better to play with when they're new.

^ that big silver one looks like it would be like playing with just a huge chunk of silver.
NOPE
#20
It's actually plastic. 4 dollars seems like a lot for a pick but they are very comfortable to hold (not the huge ones) and they do glide over the strings very well.
I don't give a shit if you listen to me or not
#21
I usually get little divots from scraping the strings. I like it better though, it forms to my pick.

But yah it shouldnt matter as long as it still plays good.
#22
I use brass picks, so I really don't have that problem until the picks are like 6 months old, and then I just sharpen them with sandpaper (this works for plastic picks too if you only have a couple and can't get any more for some reason)

I'm using Jazz III at the moment, which don't wear down.

I also use these carbon nylon pickboy things, because they have a really good prescence to them. But they wear down.
#26
My Jazz III's are wearing down very slowly....but still wearing down.... considering V-picks, but not sure that I would like them that much.
I've bought, sold, and traded more gear than I care to admit.

I just noticed that the dick I am using now is rigid-y around the edges. Obviously dicks are not made this way. This is the first time I notice this on any of my dicks, and I've gone through a lot of them, but is this supposed to happen over time or is it just me? I'm starting to think I have to change dicks more often than I thought now.

So how is your dick right now? and nobody better change the p's to d's

sorry, i couldnt resist.


anyways, on topic, i really like fender celluloids, but they do wear down. mine get pretty "nubby" after a while.

I came up with this kick ass riff on my ukelele when I was 12. Find out two years later, it was smoke on the water. Got my hopes and dreams killed..
