Step 1: What You'll Need:

A cymbal (preferably a broken one)
Tin snips
A file
A guitar pick template (I used an actual pick)
A pencil

Step 2: Tracing and Cutting

Step 3: Filing

File the pick until you've reached desired shape

Step 4: (optional) Fining the Edges

If you're like me, you want your pick to be fine on the edges. I took one of these black filing sponge things and filed the whole thing down with it.

Step 5: The Finished Product

Well, here's the finished product! I hope you found this useful. Just tell me if I wasn't clear about something. Enjoy making yours!

    There was a company back in the day that made these back in the late 90s I still have a few of them. Some of the best bass picks I have ever owned. Now I want to go find them and make some for my self!
