Guitar pick counter display - where to find one?

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hi ladies and gents

 

I’m after a guitar pick counter display like you see in the music shops.  My local music shop closed down six months ago and I remembered they had one on the last day, but I checked with them and it’s gone now.

 

Anyone know where I can get one (on a budget!)

 

Preferably empty - I want it to store and organise my own pick collection!

 

cheers

Ryan

Why not just use a seed tray from your local garden centre?

You, Sir, are a born librarian and that’s a compliment.

I keep mine in the filter of the washing machine.

Try this 

Bonus - it’s transportable without them all falling out . Anyone who has more than 8 kinds of plectrum has way too much time on their hands

keep a clear perspex cover FIXED over the top and keep it locked until they have parted with the money - you know what guitarists are like they will be losing them all over the shop before they even got their wallet out

Contact Strings & Things - they sent us a box of things including wipes, etc which might be exactly what you're looking for.

John Hornby Skewes in Leeds was where I used to order them from for the shop.

I didn’t think of that!  No lid so not quite what I’m after, but great suggestion!

Thanks!  I take it as one - I pride myself on being organised and thorough (some might say anal...).  I’ve got hundreds of picks, and believe it or not, I’ve never lost one!

How would you organise them. By colour or by make?

Great question :D

I organise them by material first, then size/type, then brand.  I recently did this and bagged them all in those little ziplock bags, but got a bit frustrated as some obviously fit into more than one category, and those bags didn’t give me the flexibility to change them around easily haha!

Thats a neat idea!  I’ve found something similar on eBay but 25 slots and square.  Might be one to buy on payday!

I haven’t - good idea.  I wonder if they’d be willing to send me one for not much cost... I do have a couple hundred of their picks ;)

You’d need a medium now.

I would go to a fishing tackle shop and see what type of boxes they have if I were you. Usually they stock compartmentalised boxes with clear lids, so you should be able to find something.

A medication box with am and pm sections would do 14 different ones, the lids snap closed, and have handy suggestions as to which plectrum to use on any given day! :)
