So, whose pluctrums do you have?

Recommended Posts

Randomly, I have Nathan East's, and Brian Setzer's.

I bet some of us on here have a much larger collection than me? 🙂

I don't even have one of my own.

It's true!

I have one of Ron Asheton's, which I picked off the floor when I was crewing for The Stooges, and came across one of Roger Glover's in my spares box- and I have no idea whatsoever where that came from.

I had a plectrum given to me by Scotty Moore (Elvis etc) that he gave me at a guitar show in Dallas. I gave it to my mate who was a massive Scotty fan, along with a signed Scotty photo that he gave me to give to my mate too.

Caught Nicko's drum stick in 2013, always hoped for Steve's wrist sweatband.

I got hit in the shoulder by Sean Kinney's drumstick at an Alice in Chains gig.

I didn't manage to catch it though.

It bounced off me and landed several rows back.

LOL I've got a large collection of picks from instrument and accessory makers - Orange, Celestion, Warwick, etc. - collected at various NAMMs, LBGSs and similar, but as far as I can see in my stash here, the only 'personal' plectrums I've got are one with Jason Scheff's website printed on, and some my ex (a guitarist) left in my collection. 9_9

I do have a couple of Basschat picks (with the old logo*) and some picks with names that are no longer around (for instance, Guitar-X, where I did my first bass 1-2-1 course, has changed name at least twice since).

* a few of you should have some too; @TheGreek had some customised ones made for me to give away at a couple of bashes and LBGSs (which I did).

I did have one of James Hetfield's but it's long gone, and I did catch one of Alice in Chains bassist Mike Inez' picks but gave it to the youngster I was with as they collected stuff like that. Not a plectrum, but at a Soundgarden gig Ben Shephard took off his bass during the last song and gave it to a member of the audience.

One of my female friends still has a pick she was given by Yngwie Malmsteen something like 30 years ago at a gig, which she had made into a pendant with a silver chain. Class. 👍:)

Did the prescription clear it up?

What's a "pluctrum"?

I’d assumed that it was a deliberate humorous mis-spelling by the OP.

But that’s just the kind of generous, glass-half-full kind of person I am😀😉.

Actually...

Back in my stagecrew days I often worked with one of their tour roadies. He gave me one of Steve's sweatbands to pass on to a friend who was a huge fan.

Sorry, if I'd known I'd have asked for two!

Jeff Buckley’s. 

Given to me by his (former) manager.

Apparently used at his final gig. Got it while fixing some stuff for Michael Tighe who was in a band called The A.M. after Buckley’s death.

Oh well...no clue where it is currently.
