    normally, everywhere ... desk drawers, guitar cases, guitar bags, pedal bags, car, drum bags

    right now, I have only a few on hand, at the bottom of a gear bag, I'm playing fingerstyle acoustic during this time

    lost one just before the pandemic ... it's important to keep things in perspective so I can't get too mad about it but who likes losing a good pick?

    I have a bunch if these, that I saved from the old "film" days.
    But I didn't think of using them for pick storage.

    I bought one of these a while back, then forgot about it.
    I should go dig it out of the drawer, and use it.


    I used to keep my picks in almost the exact same
    soap dish ( back in the day ) but mine was light blue.

    I had totally forgotten about that.

    I just use dunlop Jazz 3's, the red ones. I have them in every pair of pants, guitar cases. No need of special holders.

    I have a hand made ceramic dish that holds all the green dunlops and the picks I scored free at namm over the years. Was JHS giving out very expensive picks BTW?

    Yes, JHS had Gravity picks with their logo on them at their booth in the past.

    I got a couple at NAMM, then heard about that brand a few years later then saw that I had some furnished by JHS, I was pretty thankful about that from the good folks at JHS.

    this is an old pic of my board. So old in fact that none of these are on my guitar board and the polytune and “fancy bitch” coin purse I use for picks are now on my bass board.

    Tons and tons of Ziploc baggies sorted by type/gauge & the one(s) I’m currently using I either throw on top of my amp or between the high E & B strings on the first fret.

    Way to get in the zone! Since the MZone top appears to be different from the base, does the top stay securely attached to the base when the board is in transit? Cool idea but I don't know if I could sacrifice that much pedal space on my board for a pedalquin. Hmmm.

    I purposefully leave piles of picks in cases, on amps, and next to my recording interface convenience.


    And I can still never find one when I need one.

    I keep a few in trays, bowls etc in just about every room. Some in storage boxes. I use a K&M stand that has handy slots on top to hold 10-15 picks.
