I have never used one before. Hell, I had no idea people made these. They seem interesting, but I think they would wear out a bit fast... unless I was playing folk music. Maybe I shall order a couple in the future and test them out. Thanks for the heads up!

Interesting! I'm curious to know how these ones feel and sound. If you decide to order some let us know how they work!

Check this video about the difference between plastic and wood picks.

Nice.! ..well i'll try a few of them soon.Couple of hard woods and softer woods..ofcours they will wear in time
but as the article said, that's part of using a natural product. Also the wearing shapes your sound....mm we'll see dry.gif


i'll start with the coconut palmtree pick to get in the mood laugh.gif

It looks interesting, but I don't think that guitar pick will make a big difference in the sound!

I knew a guy who played mandolin in a bluegrass band, and he used a wooden pick. I borrowed it for a little while and tried in on a accoustic guitar. It does feel a little different, but tone wise I couldn't really tell a difference.
