Hey UGers I was hoping you guys could recommend me a pack of picks to go buy tonight with my free $5 gift card I got in the mail to GC.

I have used the purple Tortex 1.14 and found they were too thick, but the .7 were too thin for me to really get the pinch harmonics out. For a while I was using these 1.00 brain picks with a grip and they were nice but were flimsy after a while.

I do a lot of trem picking, a bit of sweeping, and lots of pinch harmonics. Can you recommend me a pick to try out? Thanks.

I really like the Jazz III picks from Dunlop. They're pretty thick but that really helped my tremolo picking. I suggest you try one out and see if you like it. Those things last for a long time too.

The nylon standard Jazz III's or the XLs?

Just go to the store and see if they have singles and test them out at the store... Or go online and buy a bargin bag or just start buying picks on occasion till you find one you like.

There is no way you can suggest a pick, im sorry its all personal prefrence and comfort.

And all your going to get out of this thread is a hundred different pick size's and brands so your back to square one.. There isnt a perfect pick that works for everyone..

ULTEX Jazz IIIs. They rule.

The grip becomes a little bit less over time, but they don't wear out, ever. I've got a plentiful supply, myself..

I understand that. I thought by saying what I didn't like, I could get suggestions to a pick that others didn't think had the same problems.

The general consensus is Jazz III's, so I guess I'll grab a pack of those. Thanks for the help all.

Must it be picks, or are you willing to use it as $5 to add to cash and buy something bigger, like me? (I could've gotten two cards, but my mom deleted her email. She gets the emails because of me )

Am I the only one who likes thins, the fender thins are what I've got now...seem to allow more of the strings' sound to emanate, rather than that horrible plunking/popping which seems to accompany heavies.

granted this is all on acoustic...
