I personally use Dunlop Tortex Jazz picks. They are the same size and virtually the same thickness as Jazz III picks, but they don't slide out of my hand easily. They get close to the strings and just make technical stuff easy to do.



I sometimes switch those out for these big Stubbys. They are bigger in size and easier to play standing up with.

i use the normal jazz III's but i think i might check out the tortex ones. i have sweaty hands, so a pick that doesn't slip out easily is great.

Jim Dunlop nylon standard 60mm

use em cos i like the thickness and the feel... I have used these for ages and cant play without em

I'm strictly on Duncan Tortex 1.14 because I like the feel. The medium picks... I'm not sure but I recently picked up these and love to play with them. I feel like I'm in control of each and every string and I did not feel like that with the mediums. 2 months of 1.14 and the 2 years with medium is dead to me haha

Dunlop Tortex .50

I really like the sound it leaves when I strum on my acoustic and it's really easy to hold. Glides across the strings really nicely

well since asking my local butcher for their thickest bones for nut making
i now have alot of bones for such thing so i make everything from them
also what more bad ass that playing with a bone pick you carves your self(im sure theres many things that are more bad ass than that)
they get the job done

Dunlop Ultex Jazz III. a bit wider than the original jazzy's and sticks better with sweat, and the material gives me the tone i like...its my dream pick...till i find another
#15


Thick but not too thick, has grippies on it and a round placement on the thumbside that fits my finger perfest. Line of grippies on the underside so it doesn't slip on my finger.

Currently using Dunlop Tortex 1.14mm, but occasionally I switch to Dunlop Gator Grip .71mm or .96mm. I find I do drop the Tortex picks occasionally while I never drop the Gator Grips, but the size and shape of the Tortex is the best I've ever found. I really wish they would make a .96mm Gator Grip pick that was the exact same shape as the bigger Tortex picks.
Yes, I know everything. No, I can't play worth a damn.

RIP Les Paul, I bet he's forming a kick-ass band up there to play The Great Gig in the Sky. Maybe we'll all have to use a Stairway to Heaven to go see them play. You know I'm funny.

Mainly Dunlop Jazz III's (red) but i'm gonna try those Dunlop Tortex Jazz.
Hola.
#23
Okay, so I guess I'm different. Least from everyone else in here. I use a 2.6 mm jazz pick made out of bloodstone. No, I'm not kidding. Has a wonderful tone and can even pull off cleans that destroy some of the other .60s I used to use. They're about $9 per pick but they're worth it.

Gives me nice grip for chuga chuga And I use a lot of shoulder picking in punk-rock band,perfect.
#25
I use three different picks.

1.Dunlop Jazz III (black) For the technical neo-classical and power metal stuff

2.Dunlop Stubbies 2.0mm for my heavy rhythm playing.

3.Custom made Ivory Picks 4.56mm for bass. They ain't cheap at 30 USD for 2.
Damn it! Disable can't use disable to disable Disable's disable because disable's disable has already been disabled by Disable's disable!

Tell me about it... I have .11 strings and it gets worn pretty quickly. But these are great for heavy downpicking stuff. Lots of "chugga"...

I use the purple Dunlop Big Stubby 2.0mm and 3.0mm for tremolo picking... Round edges so it goes easily for ever on the strings...

@dark Mass: Really the Big Stubby for heavy riffing? Since I got them, I couldn't help but use them on tremolo picking only...

dunlop nylon .83's. Im prone to dropping picks, so the grip on these is great. The thickness and tip of the pick are bother perfectly balanced so i can tremelo pick/gallop pick, clean strum, anything. I just love the allround feel of them, makes me feel in control of the guitar more when i have a good pick.
#31
Jazz III's most of the time, but generally I use them only for playing lead or technical stuff. I use 1mm blue tortex triangles for most rhythm, and a 1.14mm purple tortex triangle for bass.

Except just recently the 1.14's are starting to feel a little too soft for some reason, so I'm looking into other sizes and materials. I wanna get Ultex Jazz Picks, because I go through Black Jazz III's in about a week.
#32
Some dunlop ones, not sure of the model but I like that they have the grippy bits on them for when I get a bit sweaty.
#33
i use

Venom Super Heavies
Timber Tones Wooden Picks (theyre amazing :P)
and Dunlop 3mm ones

but i also use other ones, i dont have much preference

And
Sharkfin white ones I dunno what thickness they are
And
Dunlop Jazz III

My main picks I use, but I also have a few more types, like tortex 1mm, Big Stubby, S&B 1.2mm, and ones I made from old CD's.
I can use any type of pick, but the first three listed I use most.

For me, they have the perfect ratio between hard and flexible.

But i'm really interested in trying some of these:

I use Dunlop Jazz 3 Stiffis, and Dunlop Tortex .88's. I use the Jazz 3's a lot more though, since you can just wail away, and the pick doesn't flop around

I use Brain 0.88s with the cat-tongue grip thingie. I'm not sure why but I find they give me a more punchy tone than Dunlops of the same thickness. o_o

AND



Prefer the bottom plec, but the top one is good as it's lightweight and gets good attack on the strings
