Hey, just saw this site and thought it looked interesting. As many of you have done, I have a small pick collection. I don't mean mhy picks are small, just my collection is small. I have been saving these things for almost 50 years but I have to admit that the early ones were those little plastic bread seals (small for guitar, large for bass) and also folded over match (paper) and broken off wooden matches. Yeah, I was poor. If it cost a quarter to travel around the world, I couldn't make it across the street!

Nowadays I like my Blue Chip picks for guitar and their thumb pick is also very nice. For banjo I have always iked my old Nationals but use the Blue Chip JD Crowe thumb pick with the National fingerpicks. Another good finger pick is the Snuffy Smith.

Anyway, hope ya'll don't mind me joining your group.

yes--the V-Picks are pretty good, i prefer the Gravity picks--theyre pretty close but i find it easier to hold & less pick noise with the Gravity.  got hold of a Blue Chip pick a few months ago for about half of what they sell for--guy just wanted rid of it or something. the website says its about 1mm which just what i like & i gotta say i do like this pick.  very little noise & grips my fingers well, its just a tad smaller than what i usually get--im used to large rounded triangle  & this is about  1/4" smaller.  definately a keeper.  not like the red bear that im trying to sell.

My favorite for acoustic seems to be the Fender thin picks in I think they call abalone. But I have to say, Vinnie Smith makes a bunch of different V-Picks that are awesome.
