    H0ly cripes! When I went over to the Django side, I was shocked that a Gypsy Jazz pick could cost 15 bucks, but that's just ridiculous..

    Most meteors are mineral amalgams, and there's plenty of that right here, without outsourcing extra-terrestrially. Alain Dugain in France makes nice picks out of various rocks & crystals for around $8. They do have a unique sound, that's for sure.

    Indian sarod picks in polished horn sound similar - around 3 dollars a pop.. You could by a few pedals w/the leftover change.

    I don't care how a pick looks. The whole meteorite thing is just a gimmick and an expensive one at that.

    Did anyone else hear of, or buy, a "Tuskbuffer" pick? They were about $12 I think, made from Ivory that was taken from wooly mammoths, no less. Obviosly no mammoths were harmed in name of plectrums, with them being extinct and all.

    Mine chipped and became dangerously sharp within a month, it also managed to break just about every string on my guitar because it was so stiff and I was so heavy handed. Not a slight on the pick of course, just my poor judgement and a lack of consideration for my heavy handed approach.

    It actually sounded cool, certainly different to anything else I've tried. I'll have to try and find it, now that my right arm is less enthusiastic than it once was.
