I make my own picks...not from scratch but what i do is...i glue 3 medium fender picks together with super glue then shape them the way i want...i usually make them very small...the reason i do this is that i like my picks to be super stiff n there's no picks out there that are stiff enough for me biggrin.gif


interesting. do you line them up perfectly? I would be tempted to try having the middle one just a hair extended relative to the outside ones, to give it a bit of a sharp attack. have you tried that?

I do line them perfectly ..and if u make a mistake just sand them a little bit from the sides n u're done.I haven't tried extending the middle one..but i make them all as pointy as i can to get a real sharp attack and easier shredding...here's a pic of my fav one..i've been playing with it for over 6 months now

(the one on the left is my "custom" pick and the other one is a standard heavy Fender pick)
