Hello folks! For speed picking, solos and fast playing witch are better: Thinner or thicker picks?
I have to mention I only use sharp picks. (Dunlop tortex and ultex)
So witch is the ideal thickness of a pick for fast playing?

Thanks

Jazz III is the only way to go. They're much thicker, but you'll get used to them...

I find em relatively thin. Play great, but thin as hell (they're thicker than the ones TS mentioned though)


Then again, I'm using dunlop 3mm stubbs......

Lots of personal preference. Like wamguy98 said, the Jazz III is pretty awesome. I've been using a lot of Pickboy Carbon Nylon 1mm picks and I love them...not too thick, sharp, easy to grip, good size and zero flex.

Jazz III FTW. If they're good enough for John Petrucci, they'll probably suit you fine. The red ones can be a bit slippery if you sweat a lot while playing.

OK i've got the ideea, but you know, thicker picks will produce a brighter sound. And I don't like that. I wanna stick to...let's say Megadeth sound. Warm and mellow

whatever floats the boat man.


Just try em out sometime if you get the change, you won't go bankrupt over the price of one pick (I hope?) and who knows, you might like it.

I prefer the grey and white Dunlop Ultex, the green and purple Dunlop Tortex, and the blue Dunlop Gators.
I like Dunlop. Hate Jazz III's though.

Most people don't know, but the tortex ones come in a bunch of different sizes, but most guitar stores only stock the 1.14mm black ones. I use the .88mm green ones. I'm getting an order of like four or five packs any day now because I can't play with anything else.

I use Brain .54 MM's. I can't play fast with any other pick.

(just to totally veer this thread off course...)
