have you guys tried TUSQ picks? They're not easy to find but after using the yellow "warm" one, fell in love with the tone it produces. Just have to buy a few different sizes and thickness for different uses.

i saw tusq picks before in that yamaha outlet in tropicana city mall...but that outlet no longer there i think.
maybe other yamaha outlets may have.

Oho....only thought graph tec had nuts, didn't realize they had picks. They're self-lubricating. And there's even a bi-angled, it seems brows.gif

Is the material grippy? doesn't look like there's anything much on the surface besides the font, but the material looks matte like a tortex pick, perhaps as grippy? This review on comparison between TUSQ and the Jazz III and Gravity picks looks interesting, can try test it out if I can find one.

I should have some extra if you dont mind dropping by. lol

I've got a bunch of v-picks too but after trying them didnt feel like it lived up to its hype. Bloody hell expensive too and if anyone loves it i dont mind giving it away. Had the Chicken picker, diamond and stiletto.

Still so far its the TUSQ that impresses me the most. I was surprised at how much it affected tone. More focused to that than slippery / dropping of picks because when I play live I always have tonnes of picks within reach.
