Thank you, Robin! I checked Elderly's website and you are correct, they still carry them. Cool!
@christine-shoemaker, Chris, these fat Smith Brothers Cough Drops-- or was it Ludens-- shaped picks came from MI way back when I got them. I'm guessing Elderly still carries them.
Someday, I'll get back into practice with the felt pick so I can accompany my dulcimer with faux flat-footing. :)
I do believe that I want to give the felt a try now - thank you,Robin!
@sam @terry-wilson @elvensong The quick demo, I hope, allowed y'all to hear my attempt at using the pick to mimic the flat-foot sound. Though my play using the felt pick is pretty rusty, it can be used to good effect with a bit of practice.
Thanks for the demo. Not sure why I never considered a felt for dulcimer.
Good demonstration, Robin. The only pic I use on ukes are felt. Sometimes I play dulcimer with a felt, just can't be too floppy. Produces a slightly deeper tone., especially on uke.
Thanks for the demo. Hey, love your picking porch.
Thanks for the demo Robin. I went through many shapes, thicknesses, materials when looking for what I liked personally. I did notice the dramatic difference in the percussive properties many.
