jofield Flat Pick Question (25) RE: Flat Pick Question 19 Mar 01

Oooo...pickers obsessing on picks...just my style. I discovered Clayton Gold's awhile ago, and they seem the best to me since tortoise-shell became illegal. (I went into an acoustic-instrument store outside Boston about two years ago and casually asked if they ever got in any tortoise-shell picks. I was nearly thrown out of the place...but I digress.) I only play the "rounded triangle" shape, and in the Claytons, I mostly use the .80s, but I picked up a couple of .94s just for variation -- I like them both. Now in Paris, of all places, I came across a beautiful, very stiff, glass-like pick -- translucent with a rainbow design in it -- by PickBoy in 1.20 mm. This is a bit heavy for me, but it was the only size they had. PickBoy has a website, which does not show the rounded triangle in their "Rainbow" line. I actually exchanged e-mails with someone at PickBoy, and it looks like they don't make that one any more. What a shame.
