    I havent looked recently, but how about some TB picks? I would certainly buy them in bulk.

    I don't know... there are a lot of anti pick folks around here. I use one occasionally when I'm playing a fast root note song. Or you know... tool.
     
  4. I'd like to buy one...

    don't make 'em w/ that gloss finish...

    it needs to have that smooth texture like this one Fender pick I got...

    I'd buy one.


    have 'em in varying sizes...

    they'll sell like hot-cakes! :cool:
     
  5. Yup... i'll vote for that. Nice .70mm picks.. ;)

    :D:D

    Merls
     
  6. There's waaaay too much variation in picks, as far as I can see. The kind that might suit one person might be the type that another hates (like merls vs. me - I can't stand .70mm, I use 1.4mm, etc).

    To satisfy everyone, you'd have to have 8 or more different thicknesses, maybe different materials, different shapes......

    Would it be viable?
     
  7. I think there should be 1 shape...standard "tear drop"


    I know,I'd like a triangle,but...the tear drop shape seems to be the most popular.


    and as for sizes..

    I think .75,1.0,1.5 would be best...I mean,we're bassists.!

    :oops:

    Simple math there, non-pick players dont buy them. I dont where black T shirts but they are for sale.

    I'm picky about my picks.

    I play with nothing but.

    HELLO WORLD! I AM A PICK PLAYER!

    Oh well, I might buy a few, and buying them with the TB logo or whatever is no big deal, I know alot of people who do that sort of thing.

    I am a picker as well, if it helps support the site, I will buy mine here.

    Paul?

    I don't use a pick with the bass, but I do with guitar, so I'd be willing to get some.

    Though, shipping picks all the way from the US seems... well...
     
  12. If they were just sent in an envelope with normal airmail, it'd be pretty cheap.

    I know it's about 50p to send a sheet of paper from here to the US, I imagine it wouldn't be much different for the other way, and a few picks couldn't weigh much more than that.

    Fair point.

    In that case, yeah, definitely, TB picks.

    Good Idea Mike. I dont use a pick, but I still like this idea, I agree with the standard tear drop since it is probably the most popular. I also think there should be 2 gauges. Medium and heavy.

    Even though I dont use a pick, I know quite a few people that do and if the price is right I could hopefully convince them to buy from here.

    More than 2 gauges. How about 4? :)
     
  17. We could do with finding out what the most popular guages are - a poll maybe? :eek: :)

    We might find that there's three really popular guages or something. :meh:
