So the stilettos and fishnets are just a lifestyle choice then? ;)


You loved it you dirty wabbit,

It only works if you wear stilettos and fishnets,

Acrylics are great if you commit to the full time, I haven't but the couple of friends who have used them confirm the fact that your natural nails are very badly affected if you use them as a temporary fix.

Finally taking this recording lark seriously (and recording my Gypsy Jazz CD)........

About 30 minutes ago I received my new Tiber Tones pick through the post https://www.amazon.co.uk/Stone-Tones-Mixed-Tin-4/dp/B00JDH53J4/ref=sr_1_6?ie=UTF8&qid=1531221927&sr=8-6&keywords=timber+tones

I'm always on the lookout for suitable replacement picks (I use a StoneWorks thin but, whilst it won't wear out, it can get lost just as easily as any other pick). First impressions of the Timber Tone are very good. I do have a titanium pick on order.

Titanium? Cool. But it must cost as much as a cheapo guitar?

Guess you're right. I've already moved on. It's evolution rather than revolution though; I'm now onto the Jazz III ultex. :tongue:

These feel so much nicer than the last red Jazz IIIs I bought off eBay that I'm wondering if they were fakes; they seem cheap and scratchy by comparison. Seemed to be a reputable dealer though, and they were slightly more expensive than the ultex ones, so I'm slightly puzzled.

*edit* ...so, that last lot were nylon. I wasn't really aware of the difference between nylon, tortex and ultex. Put me right off nylon though. I'm trying to improve my abysmal picking speed, and this ultex stuff slides off the strings like warm butter.

The second pick that I'd ordered arrived shortly after the first

26 £ ?
For one?
Wow!
But at least you can buy a special box to lovingly hold it in for £2! :thumbup:

I guess that's not a bad price for an original piece of art that can also be used as a guitar pick!
Sound-wise you are pleased with it?

Mine was only £17 - a bargain

The sound is not very different from my stone picks but polished edge makes playing easier
