Strings and picks: In 2003 Ernie Ball released that Thrice used Ernie Ball strings. However the article only says the gauges that the other guys use. Can anyone confirm that Dustin uses Ernie Ball strings also? As far as picks go, there is a picture on the net that shows him singing into a mic that has yellow picks and green picks on it. They look like Dunlop Tortex .73mm picks.
