Hi guys,

Every so often, if I have gear laying around I like to give it away to someone on this site that is hard pressed for cash but needs guitar gear! In the past I have given away a Toneport GX and an Ibanez distortion pedal. This time, it is something smaller, but I am sure someone will be interested!

I have a pack of Dunlop Tortex Sharp picks 1.14mm thickness that have never been played. I have been on a quest for my "perfect" pick. I have fallen in love with Dava control picks, and would like to send these to someone who either plays these picks, or would like to try them. Anyone interested?

Ben

I *Could* use them as I also on the look for the perfect pick but I am not bothering you to send me some picks to Germany - the letter would propably cost more than the picks itself do.

Zakk and Muntahunta - pm me your mailing address and I will send each of you half of the pick pack! I don't care about the shipping...they will fit in an envelope, so it can't be too much!

Yeah, the picks in the envelope don't cost that much at all. I tried these in the store, don't like the pointy bit, but the material is decent for a certain softer sound.
