    If it's been more than a week or two go ahead and jump to the next in line. If pa&bud shows back up we'll slot him in somewhere.

    Hello everyone,

    I would like to apologize for holding up the line with Sampler #1. I had a family crises to deal with at the same time as some critical developments in the small business I'm helping to build. Just the same, no excuse for going dark and not checking (much less responding to) private messages.

    This is an amazing thing y'all got going here, built on trust and the honor system. I'm sorry I wasn't able to hold up my end of the bargain, and apologize to anyone who's been waiting patiently. Thanks for letting me take part.

    Just received the Sampler 1 packet all the way from Oregon. The picks look jetlagged! Excited to try them out. Thanks for sending Willem!

    Just confirming that I"m ready to send on. I sent a pm to mossmanl is that the same as on the list?

    Also, really enjoyed going through the pick samples. Great selection. Took photos of the ones I liked the best to look to purchase somewhere.
    thanks for doing this.

    Sampler 1 is on its way to mossmanl in Iowa. Enjoyed testdriving them. Took pictures of the ones I liked. Concluded I'm not a thick/pick guy.... Thanks for putting this together!

    Finished with pick Sampler #2 and have sent it along to DaveGinNJ.

    I really enjoyed playing all the different kind of picks. Learned that I wouldn't mind a slightly thicker pick than what I currently have, but generally what I've got works pretty good. Those ones with a little notch for your thumb help when you are playing for a long time.

    Anyway, this is a fantastic resource and I'm thankful for all those people who have contributed and helped to pass all of these alone...

    Added myself since it's been a while since I've had either in hand for inventory of both additions (Yay!) and gone-missing picks (Boo!). That will also allow some time to rebuild the recipient lists.

    Plus, if I can get them both at the same time (which has never happened) perhaps I can cross-pollinate since I know there are a multiples in each sampler that are not represented in the other.

    I had the sampler 'way back in it's early days, but I'd like to try it again.

    I am now in receipt of Sampler #2. I have only been playing a few months so I was very surprised that I could immediately notice a difference in tone among the picks. I just pulled out a few of the more popular picks and will play with those a while. I was able to pretty quickly determine I like the Wegen Bluegrass, Primetone Rounded (can't tell which one; the text is rubbed off), and Big Stubby 3.0

    Pick Sampler #2 is now on its way to Chris Daniels. Playing all these different picks was very enlightening

    Howdy,

    I am new to this forum as a member, but have browsed through it's great resources many times. I play a variety of instruments in many styles, but for mandolin I play a Tom Jessen A, and I have the pleasure to know Tom having worked at Groth Music in MN for several years and we carried and sold his fine instruments. I would love to get on this pick sampler list if possible. I have been looking into various picks and it sure would be nice to try some out. I play guitar quite a bit as well.

    Thanks!

    Peter.

    Hello all,

    The bad news: Pick Sampler #1 has gone missing yet again. I was notified exactly 2 weeks ago that it was in the mail to me and should arrive in a few days but it hasn't shown up yet. I'm still waiting to hear from the previous holder on whether there was any tracking.

    The good news: Pick Sampler #2 reached me about three days after Dave's message above.

    I'll give #1 a little more time so I can hopefully swap some duplicates. If not, I'll get #2 back out into the wild soon. Keep your fingers crossed!

    To whoever currently has Sampler #1: What thickness is that white Wegen Bluegrass pick? I'd like to buy one, but can't remember the size.

    Hey Chris, hope #1 shows up! I'm kind of amazed it has gone on this long.

    What do you think about trying to get these back to yourself in August so we can do a mass pick-tasting session at Bibey Camp?

    Oh bummer I got skipped over on sampler 1!

    Edit to add: can I get back on the list? I was never contacted to receive it, and I still would like to! #2 is fine if #1 never turns up.
