    Default Re: The Traveling Pick Sampler - Anyone Interested?

    Just moved up to an MT2, so I need to try all the picks again. Please add me to both lists.

    Check out post #685 for a listing as of Nov. 2017. Sampler 2 had a big selection of picks and it grew some since then. Best to get on the list and check them out in person.

    Currently pick sampler #2 has 132 picks in it and there is a list. There are a few duplicates but this is a lot of picks.

    Is Chris solely responsible for keeping track of the waiting list, or do we do that? I'm not 100% sure I know who's in front of me, nor indeed whether I'm on the list at all based on my previous post.

    I usually help keep the lists on track but I've been too busy lately to add the most recent names. I'm currently at Alan Bibey's Mando Camp and I'll get the updated lists posted as soon as it's over this weekend.

    Finally a new list update! I try to place names based on first come/first served with some adjustment for being a previous holder or being on both lists. Hopefully everyone is good with the queue:

    Sampler I

    Chris Daniels - Current holder of Sampler #1
    Scott R
    darrylicshon
    Pa&Bud
    Rdeane
    707erich
    thecelloronin
    willem

    Sampler II

    707erich - Current holder of Sampler #2
    mandokismet
    thecelloronin
    rowka
    Rdeane

    Since it's been a while, here are the community 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.

    I've only been playing for 9 months and only recently discovered how much a pick can change everything. I like my three current picks (Dunlop 2.0 Big Stubby, Pro Plec 1.5, Pickboy 150) from my local store well enough but was excited to try a lot of different kinds with the Sampler Pack 2.

    Here's the funny thing about my winnowing process - I ended up with what quite a few MandolinCafe posters recommend using a mostly blind process.

    I eliminated about 2/3 of the picks based on duplicates, too thin, too weird, Guitar Center freebie, etc. Then I did a quick 1-2 minutes with the remaining 40 and eliminated any that were clearly not working for me and was left with 20. Then I played each one of those for 2-5 minutes each, ranking them ahead or behind one other. I did this mostly blind, purposefully not looking at the pick label.

    What I ended up with for my top six on this first pass:

    First Tier: Blue Chip CT55, Dunlop Primetone 1.3 Standard, Dunlop Primetone 1.3 Semi-round Smooth, Dunlop Primetone 1.3 Semi-round Grip
    Second Tier: Dunlop 207 Jazztone, Dawg

    I'm sure I'll play through the 40 again over the next week or two, but it's a nice verification of what others are saying.

    And thanks to Chris for organizing - amazing and helpful idea!

    Hello everyone, just confirming that I have pick sampler #2. Wow, what a collection! So far, my favorite is the Wegen white bluegrass pick. Surprisingly, I kind of hate the Bluechip. Definitely a learning experience. Will spend a little more time with these before passing them on.

    Hello,

    I would like to get on the list. Not sure I completely understand the difference between Sampler 1 and 2, but the list looks shorter for Sampler 2, so I would want that one.

    Been playing about 7 months or so.
