    Nobody? Now I'm really curious. I did some more searching and found a couple other stone picks but these were the only big-triangle shaped bass ones. I may just have to get one.

    Back in the late 70s/early 80s (IIRC), there was a pick called the "Min'd pick", which was a polished stone. They were $7 each back then. I bought several and I liked them; however, I rarely used a pick back then and it's even rarer for me to use one today. I could play pretty fast with one as there was no pick "recovery" time. That little bit of time may seem insignificant, but it made a difference. I could also get a strange "boing" type of sound when I wanted it by playing near the bridge. I still have one of those picks and the pouch they used to come in. The ones I used to get were shaped like SBA005.

    Hey, thanks for the info! I often partake of the super-fast picking style and that sounds like it might help. I'm going to get one of the big triangle ones, though. I think I'd probably break one of those long ones.
