Maybe... Just for a goof, when the price of picks went to a quarter, I made some out of quarters. I like really thin picks, but all that flapping is unacceptable. So, rather than grinding the quarter, I hammered it and drew about half of it down to a point, then filed and buffed. It was pretty good, but still quite thick where you grip it...and heavy. Somebody recently gave me a copper pick, and I really like it. I made my own from a piece of plumbing, and I'm using it exclusively. Thin, great attack, a little warmer than the quarter; and SUPER CHEAP! For whatever reason, the tone is most similar to my picks made from a certain sea animal that I won't mention (I promise it's pre-ban); which is a very good thing. I suppose I could get a lifetime supply from 3' of 1" pipe! This was a quickie, eyeballed prototype...the next ones will be nicer. I suppose I'll get it to about 15 minutes/pick.
