    I’ve added the Dunlop Tortex 1 mm (blue) to my search for a pick. I like it’s feel and sound. The search continues . . . :old:

    Hi, DUD1. Yeah, almost all of my picks are Dunlops. I really like the feel of the Prime Tones, but they’re too stiff for me so far. I use the semi...

  1. I have to admit I hardly notice it. I think I unconsciously changed how i attack the strings. Also - I strum with the fleshy part of my fingers, not my nails.

    Hello!

    On a thread from 2015, you mentioned getting a 'clicking' sound when strumming your (then new) Outdoor ukulele.

    I'm having the same noise, and I'm trying to decide how much it bothers me - and if it might get better with time, different strings etc.

    What have your experiences been?

    Do you still play it, and does it still make that clicking noise?

    Cheers!
    B
