My uncle makes these for me sometimes and I usually have a handful of different widths and species around for recording. My favorites are blood wood and snake wood. They sound as cool as they look.
How can you get your hands on beauties like these?
Like I said, my uncle makes them. I know he used to sell them online, but I don't know if he still does. There are other guys out there if you check reverb.com or ebay.com, but I can't speak to the quality of their product. The photo I used is a stock internet photo. My uncle's wood picks are actually nicer looking.
Okay, time to go on a pick-hunt then.
I believe 'surfrider' is still making driftwood picks and I know those are nice, environmentally sound and very popular if a bit pricey. If you want to try to find my uncle's picks you want to look For Henry Marchione from Pennsylvania. I totally forget what he nicknamed his itty bity business when it was going strong 5 years ago. He is getting older and less healthy so he may have given up on the whole thing and decided to just enjoy his retirement. We get on well as musicians but are not exceptionally close. I am pretty sure I don't even have his email address or cell # anymore, but next time I see him at a family function I will ask him if he's still in the boutique pick business and I'll report back with an EB guitar forum post so everyone can get some picks if he has any to sell.
Sounds great! Thank you!
