If anyone is interested I'm developing a new Alternative to Tortoise shell.
Its Muskox Horn,, a very beautiful translucent and robust material. These are a medium size pick around 2.25-3.5mm in thickness.......go to

www.pacettiinstruments.com then to my Blog

Also at the Djangobooks forum.....sold quite a few through that forum

Gregs' Shop Log......you'll find pictures there

Re: Pick rotation

If pick rotation is a problem for you, this puts a stop to it. It also increases grip therefore increasing volume. Take out a crescent shape at the top of your pick.
One of my favorite past-time is a kind-of study of pick usage. I'm the guy that came up with a Tortoise Alternative, Muskox horn, but now I don't really make them much except for myself.....[img]IMG_1255.jpg[/img]
