Subject: RE: Fat pick Thin pick.?????
I agree that Wegen picks are superb, but damnably expensive in Canada, about $18 for 2! I love 'em for mandolin, but paranoid about losing them. I still prefer the thinner ones (1mm is thin for a Wegen).

As much as I'm hip to try new picks, I always end up returning to a medium weight of something (.73mm), usually Dunlops and usually Ultex. There are more and better choices than ever before, a sort of golden age of picks if you will.

I made a very nice cattle bone pick this past summer and promptly misplaced it, so I might try it again. I wouldn't strum with it, but as a special purpose pick for a particular sound it was nice.

Peace, Mooh.
