Unfortunately it's the only place I can find online that does bags of 50 Ibanez Paul Gilbert picks.

GAK's postage is odd. I remember once looking at a brand of strings only they did at the time, and the postage was nearly as much as the strings.

What's awesome about the PG picks?

the molecular structure of the PG pick allows you transfer all the harmonic transients into strings as you pick, increasing touch response, and making everything sound more resonant, organic and 3D.

Messaged you.

Just really like the shape. A bit smaller than normal picks, but not as small as the Dunlop Jazz.
That and the harmonic transient stuff.

I think I'll stick to my Black Ice picks until I lose/misplace them all. Then I might try a PG pick. Or I'll just buy one. Only for the colour.

Probably cost 50p to post.

at 33.00 for 50, its still just 66p per pick - better than 4.50 on ebay for five picks (90p each).

have you tried calling them to see if they will pop them in a jiffy bag and trot round to the post office ????

Don't get me started on the ebay prices for these picks.
Did think about phoning them, but I much prefer to just moan instead ;)
