    FYI: I checked the tracking and Sampler #1 was delivered to Keith this morning. He did tell me last week he was going out of town sometime soon so there may be a small delay in him being able to check it out. Hopefully the pickin' postman had fun.

    One side note for PDX players:

    Old Town Music has a fantastic selection of picks, many of which are in Sampler 2. This includes a wide variety of Wegens, and the PrimeTones.

    I received the picks from Sample 1 last night from Keith who has been great about communicating with me. I've PMed W. James Johnson and will keep him updated as well.

    I received some Prime Tones like what you ordered. I drilled some holes in one of them to make it easier to hold. I think you'll like it.

    I've taken some liberties and organized the picks a bit to make it a little easier to reason about:

    I've separated all the picks into 3 major groups. Inside each major group, I sub-grouped where it made sense:

    Teardrop Picks -
    - Dunlop Teardrops
    - Dunlop Jazztones

    Triangle Picks -
    - Dunlop Triangles (primetone, americana)
    - Wegens and V-picks
    - Custom (bluechips, hawks, dawg)

    Unique Materials and/or shape Picks -
    - wood, stone, horn etc.


    I've also tried to group identical picks together (fender heavies, Pro Plecs etc.). Not all of the groupings are perfect but it should be easier to make sense of. I also added a wegen bluegrass teardrop (black) to the collection.

    Thoughts:

    As a left-handed player, I quickly realized how many picks are made for right-handed players. I thought the bluechips, wegen TF140 and the smooth primetones (semi-round) had really good tone but they were all right-handed. I already use the ProPlec 346s and they stood up against the other picks I liked. The big surprise for me was the Dunlop Jazztone 207. It feels a little small in my hand but it has a really warm tone and is really enjoyable to play (plus cheap). I just like playing with it and found it really easy to tremolo with.

    I've also ordered some wegen M150s which should be showing up in a couple of weeks. I realized I need to support the makers who actually support lefties. Bluechip is still too rich for my blood. I'll be shipping the picks sometime this week and updating the thread when I do. My wife is a flatpick guitar player and she enjoyed the picks as well and is now a wegen bluegrass user.

    Ronnie - I think you did. You just add your name to the thread and when it's your turn the current holder of the picks will PM you, get all your details and ship them to you. The only cost to you is shipping them to the next guy.

    I would love to be on the list as well! With just 1.5 years of playing experience, I have collected over 25 picks. My current favorite is the Dunlop Primetone triangular with grip. But Iím not sure itís my forever pick....
