I use an Altoids mini tin for my pick holder.

Yellow?? those are thick! I use orange

i use 2 to 3 mm lol

man i use orange red or pink for strumming. then jazz picks for the other stuff

I've been using a Sours candy tin to hold my picks for about 3 years except its kinda bulky and i dont need to carry 30 picks with me so i keep 2 in my wallet. I use yellows primarily and orange if its mostly strumming.

u should call it the pickey bank! (not responsible for heart attacks caused by bad puns)

Please, no puns. my friend says the worst ones like, "You need a ghoul friend*maniacle giggles* " because I like Zombies.

ooooooooo u arn't in the US I guess I have to try to find them

I have contacts , (aka as family)
