Item Description

This is the original design pick that U2s Edge plays

How much praise can musicians lavish on something as small and simple as a guitar pick? Just ask them about the Herdim Nylon Guitar Pick and you'll find out.

Made in Germany since 1960, the Herdim Standard Nylon guitar pick has a raised dimple pattern for a sure grip. To sound like the Edge of U2, turn the Herdim pick upside down and play the strings with the wide end of the pick, letting the dimples contact the strings. Musicians love not only sounding like they're playing a solo for one of the most famous rock bands ever, but also appreciate the versatility the Herdim pick provides. These picks also have a reputation for lasting a long time and taking a lot of use.

The Herdim pick comes in three sizes: Thin yellow is .63 millimeters, medium red is .87 millimeters, and heavy blue is 1.1 millimeters. Strings and Beyond sells this little slice of musical goodness for under a dollar apiece when you buy in quantity.

Nail that U2 sound...
August 14, 2014
If you're after that signature pick attack that Edge from U2 has then this is the only way to get it. Not bad picks when used for regular acoustic playing as well, even though they are over 1mm thick they're quite flexible, more so than Fender Medium celluloid picks which are what I usually use for acoustic playing. But I bought these only to get close to Edge's pick attack & tones and they nail it.
The only pick to use if you want to get closer to Edge's sound, and I love them for that kind of effect & other pick comes close.
A tad too flexible for my personal taste for other uses, but this is just my opinion, you may very well love them as others have.

Never thought a pick would make an difference, but the tone holding it the "edge" way is unmistakable.

The Edge sound
January 22, 2014
The Edge from U2 used to use these, before he got his own custom picks made. These are absolutely essential to his sound, but I've recommended them to worship players who are trying to get a similar chimey attack. They last a long time too, when you use them the way the Edge uses them: nubby side hitting the strings. I get the blue ones, as they are the same ones the Edge uses.

This pick is very very good! Any guitarist that wants that U2 Edge sound should buy this! It has a very warm tone when you play it on the dimples side(Sideways). Herdim picks are better than all the other brand picks. Buy this!

The best sounding pick i have ever used. Not only for those who love The Edge, but the sound is so versatile that it became the ONLY pick i ever use now. From acoustic to head busting solos it is by far the best pick on the planet.
