I bought a guitar magazine that had advertisements in it for "natural picks" So I started searching online and checked out the site Bossardpicks.com I found picks made of wood, stone, abalone, horn and even fossils of dinosaur bone. A single pick runs from 4-20 US dollars.

Anyone know if these are worth the money?

The Abalone pick is beautiful. And the Dino Bone picks are pretty amazing too.

My logic is that if I have some respect for the craftsmanship of the pick, it doesn't break I might be motivated not to loose the damn thing so quickly. :)

My old guitar teacher had a Stone pick . Lots of jazz players used them. They give off a loud crisp sound from the strings. The different materials in the picks make different sounds. When I first started playing I used the bread clips as picks.

Thanks Bodom, so you noticed a difference in the sound. I've used those bread clips before too. old blockbuster cards. Even used a straight pin once didn't like it much but...

Abalone picks are very nice, you can get one along the seashore..

But my grandfather told me that there are also picks made from a "Pawikan"(Sea Turtle)..



There are very nice picks, but I prefer steel ones, its easy for me to use steel picks..

When there's no other picks that can be used, I cut some plastic ..
I hate that my picks always get lost.. [or maybe my younger sister(always steal every stuff from me)
"who dosn't know how to use a guitar" get all of them and later on, give it to her "friends" to have friends?!]

(Such a thief!!)

Haha these old topics scare me for some reason. It's like, there are strangers in the forum. But they're just old members I never got used to. But still. I seem to get slightly freaked out by it every time I see one for some reason...
