[FONT="]I have the Monulista pic, its really great for dynamics and the feel is amazing. Great sound and they just look cool.
At $110.00 they are practically giving it away.
You paid $135.00 for a rock pick that is probably hurtin your strings?!?!?!
You got money to spare? Give me money please, I can send you rocks that are hundreds of thousands of years old and are made of star stuff (as is everything). . . just PM me
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.
Yeah, so what? My dad gives me all the money I want.
That's nice . . . maybe he can kick some my way. just go in the kitchen and drop the question nicely . . . just say somthin like: "hey Dad, this guy pfflam, he's real nice and stuff and he just kinda likes those Z-Vex pedals and Vox Amps and Gretch guitars . . . well, he kinda wonders etc etc"
Then just pm me . . . ok?
:moon No can do, I have a Dumble amp on order.
Wow. I think I've seen everything now.
Wow! I love your pedalboard! What's that thing in the upper right? Will it help my sound like the Red Hot Chili Peppers??!?! :BITCH
I don't care how a pick looks. The whole meteorite thing is just a gimmick and an expensive one at that.
I do feel better about spending over 100 bucks on a guitar cable though.
Aw c'mon . . . Dumble Schmumble . . . everybody knows you can get a Dumble sound cinch with just an old Arion SOD-1 MIJ pedal and a vintage Boogie SOB . . . and louder too
. . . well, maybe about as loud
Just when you think you have seen everything.....
I think I should start another post your pedalboards thread...hmmm
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.
