Hi guys,

I have just gone "live" on www.sonicstate.com with a video all about the humble plectrum, shot at the Muzikmesse I interviewed loads of pro guitarists about their choice of pick :-)

Check it out here:

Loads more to come if this one does well, see ya'll soon

Congrats once again, Rob!

By the way, I'm a two-options man: Dunlop orange Tortex and Fender heavy celluloids.

Ultex Jazz III's for the win!


I agree with this good fella. Ultex Jazz III's are awesome.

Tortex's ftw.

Awesome stuff. Keep them coming. I'm actually thinking of getting an Orange now, instead of a Fender. Tried one it was pretty good.

EDIT: Lol, shark fins. I used to think those were cool back in the day because my friend had a bunch of them. What a waste of money.

That was a really cool vid, I mean I know picks make a difference but it never really jumped at me that people actually use things like credit cards haha!

I personally use Dunlop Jazz III's in black. I'd really like to try a few stainless steal one's though, especially if I could get them cut to the Jazz III shape!

i used the Dunlop 1.5mm Gator Grips. they're actually a bit smaller than your normal Fender or 1.14 mm Tortex pick, but they're not as small as the Jazz III picks which i find to be too small.

they're perfect.

Awesome video, Rob! I personally use red Jazz III's, but I've never tried the black ones. The red ones give me the ol' slip sometimes, so I might have to go pick up some black Jazz III's on my next trip to the shop.

By the way, I really liked the square credit card pick I'm going to have to try that sometime (if I can ever find a useless card, heh).

2mm big stubbies for me, I used to be quite fond of 1mm blue tortexs also.

Yeah! Those Gator Grips are awesome! But they usually don't have many of them in my local shop, and don't last me as much as the Tortex, so I always get back to the trusty oranges

I've tried a couple of different picks, but JAZZ IIIs is the best ones, they're the only ones it feels natural to me to hold with the thumb against the side of my index as you should do. If I use any other big ones I go back to my old bad habit of holding it with my thumb against the flesh of the index and plays much worse. So JAZZ III's the best!

that was interesting.

I've tried thousands of picks, bu the only ones that gives me the sound that I really like is Jazz IIIs. I especially like the Ultex Jazz III because it still has this sharpness, but the picking noise is reduce slightly, wich I like. + it lasts a lot longer than the red ones.
I mean I like some picking noise, but with the black Jazz III to me that's overkill. Just listen to John Petrucci when he's playing fast. It's awesome, of course, but to me that is way to much picking noise.
