I agree with FZ fan, $35 for an improved playing experience is a short price to pay. Now that I have a couple, I'd say these are nice, glad I have them - but not sure if they're nicer than some of the other selections out there for shorter money. T-Sal has me interested in the Gibson Heavy. When I lose these in a week or so, i'll let you know if I like them enough to order again.

$35.00 guitar picks, $100+ capos...where would the world of commerce be without dedicated hobbyists looking for the next accessory (says the guy who just ordered a $46 glass slide) :rolleyes: .

And to think I used to use a lipstick tube cover as a slide, and buy single replacement strings to make a set last longer.

As a reality check, I only paid $50 (+$10 for the cardboard case) for my 1948-1950 J-45 just over 50 years ago. But it was pretty well-used for a guitar that was less than 20 years old.

Yeah. I got my first guitar when I sold the PA from my first band that had dissolved (I was the singer and owned that piece of equipment). Sold it back to the store I bought it from, and I don't remember the conversation or the dollar amount, but it went something like "How much will you give me?" "$200 and this used guitar." "How much without the guitar?" "$200." So I took the guitar. It was a Harmony Sovereign H1260; wish I still had it!

I got both the TD 45 and TAD 50 (TAD 50 for slide). I just sent the TAD 50 back today, to replace it with the TAD 40.

I noticed the TAD 50 sounded muffled compared to the big triangle med fender pick I had been using, and the TD 45 sounded a bit brighter... or louder than the TAD 50. Hoping going for the TAD 40 continues the trend and I get the great pick you are all talking about. Will report back when it comes in.

I do think the feel of the pick is better - but didn't get the sound I was hoping for.

billroy, you'll be much happier with the 40... it won't be dull I promise.

I returned a TD60 someone recommended, way too dull.... replaced with 45.
