he uses picks with the bumps on the opposite side of the picks, the name doesn't come to mind but they are pretty rare to find. Dunlop makes a great pick that's similar to Edge's.

The picks that Edge uses are called Herdims. He uses the blue ones.

I use the yellow .73mm Dunlop Tortex Fins.

These have the 'bumps' on one edge that you use to strike the strings to get that Edge 'twang'.

Peace!

You can also get the sound from using Dunlop Nylons, using the pick backwards. Hitting the strings with the grip part. It works nicely, that's how I get the sound.

I just bought, and am about to try out some Brain Picks. They're called Snarling Dogs, and they've got an amazing grip on them. Like $5USD for a tin of 12. I'll let you know how they sound soon.

Ah doncha love it when that happens?

To the topic, does anyone know if these picks are available in Holland? None of the websites of music stores around me have picks listed so I don't know wether I can buy them here or not...
