i have tried many picks and strings in the past like everyone has and this combi has been my best ever since the early 90s. it was a struggle before i met these and those struggling times were uncomfortable if i recall then now. it felt like the extensions of my hands when i first tried them. it has become a part of me since and i cant seem to leave them alone for forever. its very much as i cant live w/o them. its one of my worst fears that if ernie ball stopped making that pick then what i be like w/o? i know they never stop making the slinkys but their picks?........i got worried big time once so i just bought 80 of this ernie ball picks and it was in 1991 or something.......j.

@ (Cellulose Acetate Nitrate) tortoise Shell, Heavy 0.94mm



@ Super Slinky Nickel Wound .009 - .042 Pink pack




@ i also use the earnie ball poly straps usually.........

Bloody Mick and his Zakk Wylde fixation...it's rubbing off:
My picks


And my strings

I used to use Boomers many MANY years ago and I've recently gone back to them.

Good to see the "stiff" picks there guys. I was talking to Tommy Emanual in Sydney a few years back and he told me that " if you can bend your pick then throw it away" he went on to say that the light and shade should come from your hands, not your pick.... I use D'andrea Pro Grip 1.21mm Picks, they have a "rough" finish and i like that, i sweat a lot and used to lose a few picks, not any more.. I use DR and Dunlop strings depending on the gauges, DR for the 10-52's and Dunlop for anything up too 70-12's...

i use dunlop gator grip 1.5mm, and rotosound 9s/pinks (for E tuning, anyway). I think I'm going to try those Newtone strings next, though, I've been hearing some good things about them.
