wherever you want it. it's not like it affects your tone.

I've got one on my wall, and one with no sticky stuff on it that I just put on an amp or similar place when on stage.

I don't use a pick for bass, though..

Yet you don't see a problem with talking about your drummer's picks?

lol lol lol y do u need 2 use picks if u paly bass n00b? lol lol lol

If you have a mid-70s fender, you might be able to stick your picks in the neck pocket.

Otherwise, anywhere that is convenient. The headstock is a good idea, but its a long reach.

The best place to stick a pick holder on your bass? I wouldn't know - I play bass with my fingers like a man.

I usually slide a couple into my wrist band. Not that conveinentt, but I don't plan on breaking picks constantly...or using them constantly, for that matter. Only when needed.

I don't use a pick as such i use one on those things you put on your finger. this makes it easy to switch between pick and fingers.

I saw some guy do a crazy Latin-sounding solo with those things. It makes me wish I didn't suck so much at using them.

I have a mic stand clippable pick holder and that's what I use. It's super convenient and I needn't go fishing for a pick if I need one.

If there's a mic stand available, Fitz's idea really works the best and is the most convenient.

IF your a female bass player a bra strap makes a convenient place to stick your picks, but I think there's only 3 other regulars on this forum that would find that a useful concept, so I am going to just say get a mic stand pick holder and be done with it.

microphone stand.

I agree, mic stand and a bit of duct tape is the way to go. You can stick your poxy pick holders up your arse.

Up your A**! Picks are for n00bZ (lol, Don't take this seriously, I use a Pick mainly)

But seriously, I hold one between my teeth, but I reckon maybe above the stings, like above the neck pickup of a Jazz, That's just my Opinion, Mic Stand sounds Good.

Mine's on the back of my headstock. If I weren't concerned with looks, and I really actually needed it, I'd put it near the knobs, though. I rarely switch between finger-style and pick-style within a song, so convenience isn't that terribly necessary.

Side-note: what picks do you use?
