Whenever I play with I pick I like the sound heavy picks give me. I had a Medium gauge phase a few weeks ago but that's passed.

i actualy use 2 mm picks if i do play bass with pick i only do it when looking for certain sounds tho and i find the thicker the pick the better but i use pretty hefty ones for guitar to.

i have no helpful advice

I use heavy picks.

But I found it's easier for me to do triplets with a medium pick.

But I also use my fingers once and a while.

You see this is why it's wrong to rape your guitar... in public.

Fender FM 212R
when I do pick, I like those little tremolo picks.

but as thick and stiff as possible, none of that gummy bear feel, if I'm not feeling the string with the finger I better get some tone out of it.

I wouldn't call what we have here on the Bass Forum a mentality. It's more like the sharing part of an AA meeting.

Fingers, for the most part, but when I use a pick I try to grab a 1.2-1.5mm cel pick.
Nope, no sig here.
I use a Dunlop medium thumb pick at the moment.
Pretty fun if you like to switch between fingers and pick in the middle of a song.

I use red Fender heavies. Only time I ever use mediums is for acoustic guitar.

Yes. Chest hair = automatic awesome. Even if you're a woman.
I use these custom-made dealies that my guitar teacher gives out for Christmas. They're not too small, not too big, and just the right thickness. Plus, they have funny stuff written on them, like "CHICKEN FEET".
Dunlop Jazz III's. Very small, so only use if you have long skinny fingers like me

That's because you're a 13 year old who only focuses on guitars. I bet most people can't tell the difference between your voice and your mother's.
Dunlop Ultex 1.14mm. Best picks ever. Not too thick but incredibly solid.
If not slapping or using my fingers(i.e. when i blister up or have to play faster than my fingers can, or recording, since my picking is more precise) i use Clayton Wolf picks in 1.26mm. They're made out of some kind of odd material that I like the feel of.

I have several Dunlop 0.73 mms, but I'm going to purchase some thicker ones since I don't like the feel of the current ones I possess.

I use Dunlop big stubbies, or really just the one I got off of my brother. I don't pick but for the novelty of it.

You do realize that you said you use picks roughly a quarter of an inch thick?
I have:
Acoustic B200H+B115 cab, Schecter Stiletto Custom 4, Rondo Fretless, Boss EQ-7.

Some men just want to watch the world burn. And they work at Behringer.

What if the NES breaks? WHERE IS YOUR GOD NOW?
Jazz III's or just some kinda medium pick? whatever i'm in the mood for?
In your eyes I see the darkness that tourments you, and in your head where it dwells, I'll give you my hand if you reach out and grab it, let's walk away from this hell.
actually, I find that the best picks for both bass and guitar are the free red ones that you can get at guitar center. They're mediums, and I've never had one break, and they work great on bass.
I normally go for thicker guitar picks normally about 1 mm; the same I use for guitar. I've tried to 3mm and 2mm Stubbies but I find them to be TOO thick.
All I want is for everyone to go to hell...
