    These have the perfect thickness, material hardness, and grip for my taste. Don't use them much in the studio only because I've got only one of these and haven't come across them in nearby stores, so I save mine for the times I play live. :rofl:

    I have a friend that makes me copper and stainless steel picks. Haven't used a 'regular' pick since. Still have bags of the black 2mm Gator Grips laying around unopened hehe.

    Yep 1.4 or 2.0 for some stuff - acoustic or bass.

    The choice of pick you use is unique to you. There are a million variables, all unique to you: from your instrument, acoustic or electric, guage of strings, type of music you play, your playing style and how precise or brutal or loud or soft, .... all of this is unique. Find any old plectrum that feels comfortable TO YOU. I can't really see how anyone could advise anyone else on this.

    Where do you live, I can get them in a day or two and send them to you. They come in packs of six. Just let me know how many you want/need.

    (Rollerball was my favorite movie the summer that I was 15 years old...the original and not the remake)

    I really appreciate your offer to help :bow:, but I guess it would be more of a hassle and the shipping costs would be huge too. I found a 24-pack on Amazon, waiting for it to be back in stock.

    Also, I'm afraid I've not watched that movie!
