guitar style or the bass style triangle picks?

I tend to use guitar style because I play guitar and always have them ready. what about you?
no sir away a papaya war is on

i use whatever's nearby really, but for bass my favourite picks are dunlop stubby 2.0/3.0mm. i stick to jazz III for guitar usually though.
#3
i often use wooden ones shaped like A triangle with one side cut squarely. made outta wood. it sounds better, and glides over the strings, and lasts ages (i was surprised about that too) im a bit of a weird guitarist

shape doesn't really matter to me, as long as they are thick (2mm+)
There's no such thing; there never was. Where I am going you cannot follow me now.

I use my rather large supply of red Guitar Center picks, a thumbpick, and a glass pick (normal size/shape for a guitar pick). I have a few felt picks for my uke too, but they're currently M.I.A. in my room.

Though I'm generally a fingerstyle bassist, if I have to use a pick, it's the big triangles.

This is in contrast to my guitar playing, where I use them tiny Jazz III picks. :P

I use dunlop Jazz III...i like em small..its the only type of pick i can play smoothly on

I like to use a heavy gauge Dunlop thumbpick, so I can switch between fingerstyle/tapping and picking. If I'm slapping, I tend to just stick with slap and fingers, rather than switching to picking as well, so if I know I'm playing a slap line, I leave it off, but if theres a long section of straight 16th root notes, its much easier to switch to a pick.

Having said that, Jazz III XL blacks work amazing on bass, gives you real bite and attack.

IF I play with a pick it's usually a Dunlop Tortex Wedge 1.14mm. I'm really happy with them. I bought 2, and I've had them for over a year. I used to play Dunlop Delrin 2.0mm picks, but after playing the Wedge picks, I decided that the 2.0mm picks are one of the reasons why I hated bass playing with a pick in the beginning (Tho they do wonders on drop tuned guitars).
#13
I use teardrop tortex or the normal jazz 3s. I occasionally use nylons but they don't give a strong enough attack. I need more practise with fingerstyle bass.

I use guitar style ones, made by Gear4Music (a pick is a pick right?) because they are very cheap and I lose them a lot, but I can't stand using thick picks, I use 0.81mm. I also have a triangular shaped carbon fibre 0.96mm, which is quite cool but kind of uncomfortable.

Triangle Dunlop Tortex 1.15mm.

I loove the triangle, cause I hold the pick with two fingers instead of one and I like the extra room.

I use them when my band does Amon Amarth covers as I can't finger pick the fast tremolo parts lol. But I use Jazz III's.
#25
I like the triangle picks. I use Fender Mediums (not sure what the gauge is on those) and I also have some Clayton .80 picks.

I used to primarily be a fingerstyle player, but I started with thicker 2mm picks (which I hated, Im not sure how anyone uses the thicker picks properly, I can't maintain speed with them).
