I think the type of pick used is an often overlooked factor in guitar tone and overall playability.

We all have our favorites but for what reasons?

Personally,I love the dunlop nylon 1.0 mm picks since they're very durable,shaped nicely,have a good grip,and give a good balance between stiffness and pliability.

I personally like Fender Mediums or Dunlop Tortex 0.8mm. The Fenders tent to split. I haven't had a problem with the Dunlops though.

I used to use the fender picks a couple years back and had the same problem.Tips breaking off,picks splitting and chipping and what not.I've been playing with the same black dunlop nylon for a few months now and the tip is just starting to get flat,usually a normal pick doesn't last me more than a week.

I use .60mm, .73mm and .88mm Tortex picks, .60mm for most of the stuff I play, and the other 2 for 'fast' stuff

I've tried Ultex Jazz III picks and they're amazing..they're like the real PODs. I don't use them though because it feels like cheating for some reason and after using one for a couple of hours, a normal pick felt weird as hell.

Currently hooked on Jazz III picks.

I seem to swap picks every so often, it's weird. Anyone else do this?

My favourite right now is the Fender 451 which is a mini 351, really cool pick. Also good ones are the D'Andrea Pro Plec and anything by Fender or Dunlop thats Classic Celluloid.

My favorite picks are the Sharkfins but I use a variety of different picks depending on what I am playing. I like thin picks over heavy.

I've been using JAZZ III's for so long i have a hard time using anything else. Everything else feels weird to me now.
#34
tortex 1.14 for strumming when i feel like it..good grip, but a tad big and clumsy hehe

gator grip 2mm 90% of the time..it's dark and heavy..a powerful friend..good size

ultex jazz III when i feel completely unco and need a more accurate pick that helps me out a bit. bit small..
#35
Based on the posts here I'm going to try some of the Jazz picks,they sound like they're really nice and good for what I play.

Dunlop Tortex .88. I used to use Dunlop Jazz III's, but when playing in a band and moving around when playing I find them quite uncomfartable to use 'cause they're so small.

i just don't get it.
what features does jazz III have that get everyone on the bandwagon?
i like my 3mm dunlop big stubby. it's got a contoured, wide grip, and best of all it has ultra fast attack time. suits my style perfect. and it's more durable than other thinner picks.

I used to think the same way, really. "Why does everyone love Jazz IIIs? Must be some bandwagon thing that usually happens on UG. I'm gonna use something else..."

I used to use Dunlop 2mm Gator Grips, then decided I'd try the Jazz IIIs for the hell of it. Now I have a hard time going back. It feels like playing with an oar from a rowboat or something. With the Jazz IIIs, it's easier to pick more accurately, and faster, in my opinion. As for durability, I only have two Jazz IIIs, had them for a long time now, and the things aren't even beginning to wear down. I used to grind the hell out of those Gator Grips.

Point of this post: Jazz IIIs have a reason to have a bandwagon.

again?

really?

how many times do we need to discuss which pick we all use... i think i can tell most peoples off by heart now as this question is asked every week or so...

seriously! mods.
Thank you please.
