On the advice of a friend a long time ago, I used Dunlop's Big Stubbies (3 mm) for a loooon time, but I had some very thin .38 mm picks too for acoustic strumming. I tried them the other day on my electric and I ended up really liking the sound they make. Thinking of sticking to them for a while...

Well...for me, it depends on a few things. The guitar, venue size sometimes but mostly, again, considering where we play it's the drummer. The harder he hits it the thicker the pick. Usually I play a Clayton Ultra .45 with the tele. I prefer a Clayton Standard .63 with the strat and with the SG or LP I have been using Dunlop Adams Graphite but unfortunately they have been discontinued. Luckily they are very durable and I have a good supply of them. I play all in the triangle shape.

I have a pretty thick one made of bronze that I like, it's hard to explain but it makes the strings feel like... like you're really digging into them, but very soft at the same time. Hard to explain. I also have a Dugain one made of bone but I like it less. Too stiff and rounded.

1.14 Dunlop Black Fang. To me, they feel like a great midpoint between the sharpness of a Jazz III and the fullness of a standard sized pick. Equally great for soloing and rhythm.

So far my main is a Jazz III EJs, but I have been picking back up the Tortex 1.14mm again. I wanna try the Jazz III Ultex though...

Generally prefer 1.2. Mostly Ibanez Standard Series.
I like those Dunlop Big Stubby as well.

I'm using these...



Raptor Guitar picks.
I use the pencil end for picking and the other ends for strumming.

After years of using Jazz III XL's, I switched to 1.0mm Dunlop Ultex's a few months ago.

I'm really in love with the grip and tone of the Ultex. It easily has the best grip, to my hands at least, of any pick I've ever played. The material seems to retain it's "grip-ability" even with sweaty hands. Tonally, the pick seems to add some brightness and clarity, in addition to a nice balanced tone.
