My nearest music shop is a good train journey from where i live, so when I've lost all my picks I'm forced to improvise.
I take a CD and cut a plectrum shape and it's done.
Just a tip for you all.
If you like a thicker pick use a CD, but for thinner picks use a DVD, they have a bit that flakes off so you're left with thin but strong plastic.
Best bit is you can get it to your perfect size/shape.
Anyone else do this?

That's a kerayzee idea...

Yeah, you can do it with anything, but you gotta file down the edges. Cutting plastic leaves a square edge that's rough and uncomfortable to pick with. It sorta 'hooks' onto the string. You gotta file the edges down.

I use a paint brush sometimes...

Like the big ones with long bristles.

It gives it a distinct sound

Just remembered, I did make one out of an old Debiy card, that was cool, perfect weight.

I did that with a broken bus magnetic card. Too thin IMO.

Best solution for a guy that lives far from the shop, is to buy a big packs of picks from ebay.

Doesn't everyone in The Pit?

Plus the whole point is we don't have enough time to on our hands to buy picks.
