Thread Name: Thumb Picks
Subject: Tech: Thumb Picks
I lost my last faithful solid plastic, sharp ended, thumb pick some time ago. In my naivety I thought I just had to pop into the nearest music/ instrument shop to buy a new one. Boy was I wrong! again.
I have tried all the well known music retailers in Glasgow, Edinburgh, Kirkcaldy and Dunfermline to no avail.
Could it be that they are all now south of the border as compensation for draconian licensing laws?
Seriously, all I can get is Dunlop thumb "Paddles" and similar style thumb picks which I have tried filing into the shape I was accustomed to.
Therefore a plea from the heart/thumb. Does anyone know anywhere in the UK or the rest of the world where I can get "decent" thumb picks like wot we used to get?
