By the way Cabo, time to change your avatar photo I think. It's starting to pall.

Oh dear! How embarrassing. He'll be asking advice on woolly cardigans and fluffy slippers next.

Well, it depends on how big I get the print on the shirt. Plus, full colour options. I'm going to do an initial run of fifty, but maybe more if there's high demand. Ball-park figure of £12 per unit.

Back to the original topic, being a pick obsessive of the type to make Teddy curse, I got some of these and the material appears to be identical to Dunlop Jazztones, so if you've tried those you'll have a fair idea of what these are like. They're a bit thicker (I got the 3mm types to try, some large rounded tips and some large pointed tips), with a grip that is clearly designed to be like a Wegen GJ (diagonal grip lines and concave on one side for the thumb). Unlike a Wegen, the bevel is symmetrical, rather than specifically for right or left handers.

There's almost a ceramic feel to them and fresh from the pack they seem to be dusted with a talc-like powder (again, the same as Jazztones and also Dunlop's Gator Grip picks). They feel less weird as this comes off, which it does almost immediately.

I vastly prefer Wegens, which I think are brighter and produce a lot more volume, but I suppose these are much cheaper (but still inexplicably far more expensive than Jazztones). Not bad to have as a spare or in your pocket rather than risk losing a Wegen GJ.

One other thing about them (again similar to Jazztones) is that the other corners of the pick are probably more usable than on a standard Wegen GJ pick, if you like using the 'shoulders' of the pick rather than the more orthodox 'point'.

Cue yawning and disparaging comments from Teddy...!
