    Sampler #1 is ready to ship out tomorrow, I added a V-pick Red Rocker, and a Dunlop Tru-Shell X-heavy to the lot.
    I figured out that I have apparently tried out tons of different picks in the past, cause there were very few that I hadn’t tried before. Tons of picks tho, and I found a new favorite as well, Hawk SB signature pick, already ordered a few different Hawks as a result.
    Thanks again for the chance to get in on this, I really appreciate it!

    Sampler #2 sent to Guitfiddle Mike today. (Ronnie never got back to me and it was time to move them on.) Mike should get it by Tuesday 02/20/18. Gave him the tracking number.

    Since trying all these picks I bought myself a Bluechip CT-55 which I had swore I would never do as they are expensive. But after playing one I could justify the cost, at least to myself. I also purchased some JT's picks. Those are also fantastic.

    I'm really enjoying these picks. I've been through the lot a few times now and am getting a pretty good idea of what I think works best for me.

    Thanks for all who contributed.

    I'll toss a couple of Clayton Ultem Rounded (barely) Triangle 1.2's in the mix.

    Planning to send out next Monday at the latest. PM'd Rdeane today for info!

    Sorry, I'm a little confused on how this works. I posted to have my name added to the list, but I have never provided my address or been contacted about receiving the sampler (though I am in your post above - is that the order in which they will be sent from member to member?). What do I need to do to receive it? Really looking forward to trying them all out.

    Thanks!

    I've been holding off buying any more picks until I get chance to demo Sampler #2. I'm looking forward to getting it. Guitfiddle Mike, I left you a PM just now.

    MoreThanQuinn,

    You are currently 4th in line to receive sampler #1 after Elron sends it on. You will be contacted via PM by mandogio (or possibly me) at some point after he receives it to get your address and phone number. Most folks keep a sampler about 2 weeks so you're still at least a couple months out. Plenty of time to get your fingers ready because it takes a lot of picking to get through them all.

    A list update and re-posting of house rules:

    Sampler I

    Elron - Current holder of Sampler #1
    Macabre
    Bill Findley
    mandogio
    MoreThanQuinn

    Sampler II

    Rdeane - Pending receipt of Sampler #2
    Loftonl
    B381
    Bad Monkey

    The expanded house rules:

    • Requests to be added to a recipient list can be made in this thread (preferred) or via PM to me. No need to post address.

    • Brand new user accounts are requested to continue posting to the Cafe to establish credibility in being a recipient when their time comes. MIA accounts are subject to being skipped.

    • I will try to honor requests for a specific sampler list but otherwise one will be assigned. They are both great so you won't be missing out either way!

    • You will be contacted by current holder sometime before sampler is shipped to you to confirm address and phone number. These are needed for contact info to hunt down a sampler in case it goes missing.

    • Please try to keep your sampler no longer than 2 to 3 weeks.

    • Please do not remove a pick from the sampler. If you like it, buy one.

    • Adding new picks in encouraged.

    • Current holder will contact next in line for address and phone number sometime after they receive the sampler.

    • Holder will confirm recipient address via phone call/text (preferred) or PM before shipping sampler.

    • Holder will notify recipient when sampler had been shipped. Please provide tracking if available.

    • New recipient should post in this thread when they receive the sampler.


    It may seem like a lot of nit picky rules but these samplers are tremendous and unprecedented resources built by the Mandolin Cafe forum community. For the cost of postage (usually $4 to $8) you can experience hundreds of dollars worth of picks, many you would never have the chance to try, and we want to make sure they continue to be passed around.

    Pick Sampler II was left at USPS this morning. Rdeane should receive by Thursday, 3/8/2018.

    Tracking No. 9500 1121 2721 8064 1202 59

    I learned a lot from the sampling of picks. Being a guitar player for years I think I may have gravitated toward the tear drop shaped picks. The Wegen Bluegrass White and The Dunlop Primetone Sculpted (Dark Brown) 1.3 being my favorites.

    Does anyone know for sure what thickness the Wegen Bluegrass picks were? Their website only shows them in 1.4 and they didn't seem quite that thick to me.

    I added a Clayton Ultem Rounded Triangle 1.2 that I bought on a suggestion here in the forum. I still like them a lot.


    Thanks again to all the contributors...

    I just want to express my thanks for the opportunity to experience dozens of picks through the pick samplers. It's truly a great opportunity. I received Sampler #2 yesterday and spent hours enjoying the buffet of possibilities. So far the Dawg, the Blue Chip and the Apatius are great. Wegens are nice, too. I'll be moving the sampler along in about a week or so to Loftonl (so expect a PM in a few days.)

    I'm going to ask that Bad Monkey and I switch places. I have to leave town on a trip in a few days, won't have my mandolin with me and won't get much chance to try out the picks. That could delay the next person so I would rather strip back one place in line in order to have the opportunity to actually try them when time is more available. Thanks.

    Hi B. Monkey,

    I haven't been monitoring this thread much lately but am now trying to locate each sampler. I'll post an update once I have one.
