I just got adicted to Jim Dunlop USA "Big Stubby 3.0mm Picks". These picks kick ass because they make pinch harmonix easy and they are extremely fast (after a couple hours of playing). What is your favorite pick and why?
Damn, 3mm?! Common! That's, like, waaaaaay too thick!

I play Dunlops .78, the white ones with artwork.

fender M/H and Mediums.

1968 Domino Californian

Oh, and when I don't have a pick around, I use the 2 rouble coin \m/ , just like Brian May, only he used British money, but it doesn't matter, does it?

I really like Dunlop Jazz III's. They're so tiny but comfortable to play for me. Then again, I don't really do any pinch harmonics a lot, but it is easier to pick and strum for me with them.
my music myspace!

Girl (Ned/chav) annoying me on the bus.

Me "Have you ever bled out your arse-hole?"

Her: Facial expression was priceless - "What??! Noo!"

Me: "Well if you want to keep it that way, **** off."

She then turned away and whimpered.
I use Fender Mediums. They're pretty nice and my local shop sells them in packs of 12 so I can just stock up when needed.

I use Dunlop Tortex 1.14.

Thicker doesn't allow for precise alternate picking and thinner doesn't keep stiff enough to pick accurately.
He who joyfully marches to music in rank and file has already earned my contempt.
He has been given a large brain by mistake, since for him the spinal cord would fully suffice.

Remember: A prudent question is one half of wisdom.

I don't like the Big Stubbies, they "plink" on my strings, and sound too mellow, so I tried going down to 2mm, but they couldn't take downpicking without bending the tip, so I now use 1mm Tortex.

Have you seen the picks that gypsy jazz guitarists play with? 3.5mm are not uncommon. Wegen Picks carry picks even thicker.


Dunlop 1mm Tortex triangles. They are nice and stiff, without getting too stiff. If I used stiffer/thicker picks it would sound bad because I hit the strings so hard.

Quote by the humanity

if he does not post pics, he obviously has installed a pickup and bridge on his house broom for some brutal sweep picking.

I'd ban Stubbies from airplanes, you can ****ing kill a man with one of those!

.78 tortex's, big stubby's.

The Big Stubby is getting to be my new favorite pick fast.
Quote by HxCori<3
you sir, are the ultimate UG stereotype, praise a not so good metal player, zakk, put down other peoples playing, seriously say I WAS GONAA PLAYZ SOME UBER LEEDS LOZLOERLS~1!!!11!, and then critique epiphones as if there worth a second glance
Big stubby, 1mms.
They're thin but they dont bend around like other picks, but saying that mine shattered into a million peices because i dropped my amp onto it. But I loved it anyways. =( Too bad I can't find them anymore.
I dont really like the Big Stubbys, i find they squeak on the strings to much. I preffer Dunlop Tortex. The blue ones.

Dava ones with a rubber grip that I peel off at the picking end, they look about 1mm. And roswell crash sites.

Tortex 0.77. I lost mine and I'm playing with a 1.13.. I hate it.
I used the Ibanez Artist Paul Gilbert picks.. very nice.
