Hopefully it's ok to post about picks here I'm new to the forum so I don't know whats acceptable. Anyway, I was browsing around for some new picks to try out because while I really like my gator grip picks, I'm not 100% happy with them. I've tried the Jazz III's and I love the way they play but they feel small in my hand and that's uncomfortable sometimes. On the Dunlop website I saw what were Jazz III picks but they were XL size and they were made of the Tortex material. These seem like the perfect pick for me and I got extremely excited about them only to quickly realize I don't know where to buy them. So my question is: Does anybody know where I can purchase these Tortex Jazz III XL picks? I'm currently at college without a car so I can't go to a music store so it would have to be online. Thanks.

I used to play with standard picks for years before trying out some Jazz III's and I had the same problem. I felt that they were waaaaaay too small. But because Jazz III XL's weren't available at my local shop, I stuck with the standard Jazz III's anyway. These days, I can't play guitar without them.

So they may be uncomfortable to play with now, but you do get used to them with perseverance.

Fell in love with the tiny Jazz III's immediately. Found one in a guitar case and now it's all I want.

Yeah I actually just bought these but these are the Jazz III Xl with the regular Nylon whereas the one's that I saw on Dunlop's website actually were made of the Tortex material which I thought would be awesome.

Also what's really weird is that I actually used the Jazz III's for over a year and really liked them, but then I switched back to the Gator Grip .96's that I had lying around and I've found that the larger pick really helps my playing because I was able to change my grip slightly. I dunno I might just have to mess around a little bit more with my grip and just play a bunch.

When I first started out with the JAZZ III's I also felt they were way too small, but I just stuck with them and now like T00DEEPBLUE I can't play without them either!

These?

I havent seen these before. I liked Jazz III XL Blacks a lot except they were but slippery. Tortex would fix that problem. But is that an error or or is the max thickness 1.14mm only? 1.14 isnt a problem for me but normal Jazz III XLs are 1.38 or something along those lines. These will feel different for sure.

I think the regular ones are too small. Tried the XL's and I thought they were a little too thick and bright. I got an Ultex Jazz iii in a free sample pack from Dunlop and they were almost perfect. They were a little bigger than the regular Jazz iii, a bit more rounded and warmer sounding, too bad it wore away so quickly.

I bought a pack of Tortex Tiii's and they are now my favourite picks They're a cross between a Jazz III and a regular Tortex pick. It has the sharp edge, but it's the same size as a regular pick. I think you should try them out you might like them.

You represent a pick company? You have to ask mods first. Blatantly advertising without permission tends to result in instant ban otherwise.

I'll check out those Tiii's they look pretty nice. The pick I was talking about is this one I can't seem to find them anywhere on any website besides Dunlop's so maybe they're brand new and haven't gone into circulation? I dunno but they look really cool.
