    Looks like the folks at wedgie.com have come up with something cool: rubber picks. Apparently they sound like fingers, but can be weilded at speeds faster than mere mortal fingers will allow. Not an earth shattering announcement, I know, but they still look kinda cool.

    Could be an interesting tool to add to the arsenal for a measly $2. Pretty exciting. Don't go all ape-poop now.

    I ordered some of these a couple of days ago from music123. I've got 6 packs of 3 on the way. I also bought some other stuff, so it was $1.49 per pack with free shipping. I thought I'd go ahead and try 'em all. :D

    I have been using picks more and more, and I'll be getting my US Curbow back tuned EADGC with TI Flats back soon, and that one will be screaming for a pick so I can get my Steve Swallow action on. :hyper:

    A pick that sounds like fingers, now I have seen everything.

    I might need to pick up a set to experiment with.


    Question, wouldn't the rubber crack or break under heavy use?
