Celluloid Picks

Post by jackthejesusfreak » Mon Jun 01, 2009 8:01 am

Has anyone ever used a celluloid pick? I've got rubber wedgies and the trouble is when they wear they shed dust all over my guitar body. Trying to find a pick with a different consistency that won't shed.

standard plastic (nylon?) 1mm black wedgies (with the grip) for me. wear well, no muck, soft enough to dig in without fear, hard enough to provide a defined attack and tone.

plus, the big thing, they don't slip outta yo fingers when the sweat gets on...
i like rickenbackers. and fridges.

I use celluloid picks for everything. I like them lots.
They don't seem to get slippery, even though they have no texture and I don't break or wear them out very much, but that might just be me. I still have a pick that I was given in a used state in 1992 that works just fine.

I bought a bunch from a guy on Trade Me, 50 for $25.
