I recently facebooked a woman who seemed interesting to me. She is a metalsmith who makes custom jewelry out of all sorts of interesting materials. I messaged her asking if she could make me a metal pick, not knowing one of products she produces was exactly that. She uses different metals and I ended up getting several different ones. I was in need of a metal pick because I bought a Brian May guitar knockoff and wanted things to be as close to what BM uses, so of course I need a metal pick. I bought a six pence coin off Ebay to try but just couldn't use it; it was too small and had no point. The left two are brass and copper, the right four are titanium, and you may not believe this, but the remaining dirty looking pick is made from metal that came from the airplane crash that Ronnie Van Zant and others were in. I didn't ask her how she obtained the metal. The feel and tone of the different metals is noticeable, I like them all. If anyone is interested her website is www.plectrumheaven.com, her name is Heather.
