I've recently been trying out different Thick Flat Picks - V-Pick, Wegen, etc. Nice picks - but can be expensive. I found a cheap alternative - the Dunlop Primetone pick in 5mm thickness. Stock - it has a horrible picking edge. But, with some sandpaper, file, etc - you can put your own bevel point on the picking edge and have what turns out to be a nice thick pick that's in the Wegen, V-pick type thickness at a fraction of the price. Worth a look if your interested in trying a thick pick and are willing to do a little sanding.
