I was thinking of switching to Jazz III's, since the sharper tip might be more useful for alternate picking.

Which model do you think I should start out with? (ultex, red/black, max grip, etc.)

Ultexes are my favorite Jazz IIIs. They don't have any extra material on them like you sometimes get with the nylons and they're slightly more grippy than them too, IMO.

I say get a black Jazz III XL. It's stiffer than the red material, and the extra surface area makes it easier to grip (and, from personal experience, sounds better than regular jazz iii's when doing stuff that ISN'T alternate picking). Really, IMO, it has all of the benefits of a Jazz III, but none of the downsides.

I'm a big fan of the Eric Johnson signature Jazz IIIs. They have a matte finish and they are a little bit lighter too.

I can't imagine anything worse than shagging to Mark Knopfler.

Maybe shagging Mark Knopfler, but that's about it.

Gah, different suggestions in each posts.

It sounded like the Jazz III XL's are the best though.

Ultex Sharp. Better than Jazz III's.

Big Stubby is a great pick. They have a smooth attack, and the grip is great.

I like the Eric Johnson ones the best. Sound great, and the embossed 'Eric Johnson TX' actually makes a great grip.

The standard red Jazz IIIs are made of a glossy nylon, which get scratched, nicked or dented quite easily, and as a result the string can be picked with a rough surface, resulting in a very scratchy pick attack. There's a little bit of flexibility in the pick (not much, mind).

The standard black Jazz IIIs are similar to the reds, but a little stiffer, meaning the percussive attack is louder, and the resulting note will have a brighter tone.

The Ultex Jazz IIIs are very stiff and will give you a lot of "clacky" pick attack, and again a brighter tone. They wear very little.

The Eric Johnson Jazz IIIs are made of a duller, slightly softer plastic than the usual reds, and have a slightly different profile than the other Jazz IIIs. The duller plastic means that the pick wears smoothly and that you can get a much lesser pick attack and more control over your articulation.

I haven't tried the Max Grip Jazz IIIs.

Personally, I like the EJs most, but I don't mind playing with a standard red Jazz III. I don't like the black Jazz IIIs, and I really dislike the Ultex picks.

The materials used in both the red and black Jazz IIIs were changed several years ago. I prefer the older materials. The older red material was much the same as the material in the EJ, though not quite as dull or as soft (marginally less on both counts), and the black material is completely discontinued.

I like the ultex ones, you hear more of the actual note and hardly any plastic on metal picking sound.

Ultex or the original black
