I was just wondering because the jazz is slipping from my fingers because its small, and the xl series is pretty good but its like a totally different pick.
i tried out a dunlop nylon and was impressed, it was to thin for me though so i'll be tryin the 1.0 mm.
so what picks do you guys use/recomend for me to try out?
#2
its totally preference. Ised to use dunlop yellows, and so do a lot of people. The red jazz III's are doing for me now.
Gibson Les Paul Custom
Fender American Tele

F/S:
Orange Rockerverb 50
Orange PPC412

i switched to black jazz III's because the reds were too slippery

I recently switched over to using those. It seems like I can get more speed since they are a bit pointier. Squeals are a little easier to attain as well. But yea if you have big hands they would probly be a bit too small to grasp. I know if i try and use a regular sized pick it feels like it fills my whole hand and it's very uncomfortable. Although it took me about a week or so to get used to the Jazz III's

Pretty much any other pick by dunlop...v-picks are also very nice if you get the chance to use one, they're damn expencive for pick though I bought one for $5.00 I coulda gone and gotten lunch for that, and the fact that they're clear makes them easy to loose and now that I don't know where it is lunch may have been the better investment.

i go into a store, i have a look at all the picks, and i buy the one that feels right.
Brands and stuff are just secondary to a pick that just feels good in your hand
Epiphone SG G-400 faded
Fender Strat
Fender Frontman amp
**Dream Guitar**
Fender telecaster '58 heavy relic in blonde

those seem pretty sweet, and that grip is what i need.
thats part of why i love the nylons, they dont slip, and they feel real nice.


You'll LOVE the Gator grips. I haven't dropped a gator pick yet, plus they have like 6 different thickness'.

the best part about that grip is when it wears off leave it alone for a few months and the grip comes back, you can cycle through them.

big stubby 3mm, the bigger kinds have a grove in them so there a little easier to hold.
its just preference really

well i find a considerable difference between a jazz III and one of the huge triangle fender picks
its also preference to the player on whether you even care about the picks

Dunlop Tortex picks are great.


If you like the tonality of Jazz picks but want something with more grip, check out the Dunlop Tortex Jazz picks.
