I was just wondering what you guys were using for picks as I'm experimenting with what I use, trying out tortex 1mm and a Dunlop Jazz 3XL. So yeah, what do you guys arm your wrist with?
Thanks for reading

My weapon of choice is the much sought after dunlop jazz 3 pick ( the tear drop black ones used by Batio, Dimbag, and Petrucci nuff said).

At the moment I'm using M.R.W. celluloid picks. All I really know about picks is that Dunlop's suck, so I don't really have a favourite. I'm gonna have to buy more next time I go to the store, so I'll try all the different ones then.

Fender Medium California Clears.



lol those are **** i go through about 2 every month or so. my dunlops have lasted about two months now
#24
i started with fenders, but they always seemed to break (i probably was playing to hard when i started which explains it)

but since then ive used tortex greens or purples

i use purples if i want, what seems to me sharper solos and greens if im just kinda gonna be strumming, but i guess i just have a ton of both and grab the first i see


try them out, expirement with all kinds, its not like they are expensive, what 30 cents for one?

Personally, I'm very fond of them. I've been using them for three years and have only gone through about 2 packs of 10 - they seem to last me, anyway.

When I'm next out buying picks, I'll keep in mind you think they're asterisk to the power of four and refrain from buying the most reliable pick I've used in eight years.
#26
i think the main idea here is that no pick is for everyone, thats why there are hundreds of them!!!

try em all!
#28
I use red and black brain picks, the reds are .77mm and the black ones are .88mm I think.

My favourite pick has the be Dunlop Tortex sixties but sometimes I use Tortex 1.14s for stuff like Metallica. i think 60s are ideal as they give you enough feel but aren't too flexy.
