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.
Overall Rating for Herdim Standard Nylon Guitar Pick U2s Edge Favorite Pick
|(based on 4 reviews)| 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.
The Edge sound

I get the blue ones, as they are the same ones the Edge uses.
I would recommend this item to a friend.
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.

Fingers don't slip and they take a lot of wear and tear before you have to get rid of em unlike other picks do. They also have a great attack to them - great for rythem and lead
