Thank you, sounds like you have a great fellow to invent what you need if can't be found & welcome. Is the photo of your dulcimers, I just got another one & now thinking of how to reorganize them - not a bad problem ;-)

I found one that is by Herdim which looks like the one I use. It is the small sharp teardrop pick. Yellow is light, red is medium and blue is stiff. I may have found a source though it looks like it is limited in quantity. Song of the Wood in Black Mountain, NC used to carry them but they no longer stock them.
I use a pick that looks like the yellow one and really like it for playing some things. It is a Herdim teardrop. All I can find on line says it's the small size. I am ordering some through Amazon to see if they are the same size as the ones I am using. The Folkcraft dulcimer site also has them.
I use an elongated teardop shaped pick. Several internet searches have not revealed anything like I prefer.
A picture is attached. The tourtise shell appearing one came with my first dulcimer and has Jean Schilling's signature on it. Any help would be appreciated as to source to procure something like those in the picture.
