Hello fellow ultimate-guitarists!

I wonder if you guys have the same problem as me, if u use tortex jazz picks that is....
When the pick is brand new and u pick u'll get some resistance with the pick edges brushing against the wounded strings... after awhile its gone.

i came across this picture;
Refer to this link pls

but i believe its a fake dunlop... but it looks practical to have bevels just like the jazz III nylons for the heavier tortex jazzes... it would be smooth as hell and would be the best pick for me!

Tell me what you guys think about tortex jazzes with beveled or sculpted edges.
maybe if this thread gets enough positive response i can email this thread to dunlop and see if they might just bring out these new version at the next namm show.

Yup.

And the Jazz picks have been around for forever. H3 I've never seen in stores, only online. But Jazz pics are pretty awesome.

EDIT: Every Jazz pick I've ever played that was a Tortex HAD a beveled edge.

Also, why would you want to use a Tortex in a Jazz pick? Regular JazzIII's/EJ Jazz III's last a ton longer than any Tortex version.

I used to ruin two Tortex Jazzes a show when I used them.

What? every jazz pick u played that was tortex had beveled edge??? where can i find them?!

Answer to your question why i would wan to use tortex, its because my hand sweats a little so i prefer tortex... its not that i can't use normal nylon jazz IIIs, in fact i love their tone better but when i get to the middle of some technically demanding songs and when the pressure is on i tend to lose control of it. I tend to be more confident with tortex jazzes

This may be silly but i love to replace picks as well hahahahaha i like to buy them in bulk so if i dun wear them out i'll feel uncomfortable.

I once used a red jazz III for pretty darn long and i bought a dozen the other 11 are still new damn!

I used JazzIII's for about 2 years up until late this past year when I tried some Dunlop JazzTones. I've got the 205 and I'm lovin every second of it.

i've tried the jazztones as well as the primetones they're great but i dun like it that they somehow lack attack for my taste.

could always sand or file the edges down if you prefer, but I'm almost positive the tortex jazz picks I use have a beveled edge.
