I usually play with thick sharp picks such as Big Stubbies and Tortex Sharps. My tone is usually sharp and shrill. I was playing some Atreyu this morning and I decided to get into the spirit by using the pick that Dan Jacobs threw to me years ago. My tone came to life. It was much warmer and had more depth. I'm trying to find out what pick it is because I kinda like it. It's shiny plastic and it's a solid color. It looks and feels like it's 2mm. It's rounded at the edges. It's standard shape. It's a Dunlop. Anyone know what pick this is and any other similar picks I should try?

Thanks, I'm pretty sure that's the one (albeit custom). Any other picks people would recommend for a warmer and fatter tone?

I hate you.

Though I do have a Trivium pick I got thrown to me on Slipknot's All Hope Is Gone Tour.


I'm kind of surprised DJ doesn't use Jazz III's, as most metal players tend to really like them. I know personally, since I tired Jazz III's, I've not been able to use any other kind of pick. They're just it for me.

i use stubbies. teh hard plactic rounded ones? teardrop kinda shape? a 2mm one has a very mellow tone with smooth release.

i have a .96 delrin turtle one like that. love it. very slick. never played a fat one like 2 mm though. its pretty much the only dunlops i like. i had those gator ones. the matte plastic ones that are almost white fuzzy looking? holding one of those picks makes me want to throw it across the room. i hate it for some reason.

I had a 1mm stubby, and I didn't have that problem at all.
I like the gator-grip picks or what ever they're called. Lately I've been using a medium pick made by Dickies.

I either use stubbies or jazz III's, currently stubbies are my favourite, they have a nicer grip and are easier for harmonics

Use your fingers or try felt picks.

do picks even change the sound that much (other than how thick they are really)


The thickness, shape (rounded or sharp), and material all have an impact on tone, but the more distortion going on, the less the perceived difference.

yes they do. very subtle changes. mostly in feel and attack rather than just tonal changes.

however a felt pick would be quite a different sound.
