Bono's Picks

I saw Bono using lime green picks on the 360 Tour, any ideas on brand?

Could just be the promo picks. From what I know Edge is the only one who actually has a preference when it comes to picks.

He used Red Herdims throughout the Elevation and Vertigo tours, and since Adam and Edge both still use Herdims it may be a new colour for the red ones?

The red ones are just a lighter gauge than the blue ones.

They've had someone make picks that are like Herdim's for them. The look like a Herdim but have U2 embossed on them.

Not sure who they had make them.

After many seconds of research, I have found Creative Humming to be the culprit. No website though.

I don't think that Creative Humming is a company. This may be why there was no website. Seems more likely that it is something Bono had put on the picks, heaven knows why but I've seen many guitar picks with inside jokes and 'sayings' on them over the years.

Zack U2 Pick Picks Plectrum Collection Bono Edge Adam Larry Concert Tour Memorabilia

If you look at all of the examples shown, only two dark green picks from the last tour say "creative humming", even there there are many others with the same pick design that do not say that - including another of the dark green version.
