Hopefully the last picks I need to buy - Dunlop Tortex Standard 1.14mm 72Pcs
Also got 48x Dunlop Nylon Plectrum 1mm, too flexible for some stuff, I don't use them.
Currently trying to turn noise into music. :neutral:

I just made a pick out of an old BOA debit card I had for my mom's account
Probably the first time BOA did something useful in a while... :hihi:
BOA has treated me well :shrug:

Haha cool! Do you use the rubber washers from Grolsch bottle tops to stop your strap coming off too? :hihi:

A touring guitarist friend of mine turned me on to Dunlop Max Grips about 10 or so years ago, I rarely use anything else since.

I recently discovered the Graph Tech TUSQ picks, and they really added a lot of clarity to my sound. Then I finally tried a Chicken Pick. After the first strum I already knew this was IT. Every note is ringing so loud (very loud indeed) and clear, it‘s just awesome.
