Can someone tell me what the big deal with jazz IIIs is? I constantly hear people talk about them here and I've never used them. Are they really that good?

It didn't seem possible, but apparently Messiah can spam even more now.

I dont hate them, I just dislike them. Theres no gripping substance to them at all. If I got some gorilla snot or whatever that **** is called I might use them more
#13
I like to use the purple brain picks. I'm not sure if they are .6 or .7, but they are picks for gods. And I'm one of 'em.
I can honestly say I have really been far even as decided to use even go want to do look more like.


I don't always post on UG, but when I do, I post in the Pit. Stay thirsty my friends.

Jazz III XL are better..
Normal Jazz III's are small, but the XL are.. Extra large.. =\

I'm liking them.
#22
They're extremely small but they are very heavy, as in thickness, picks. I love using them. For me, nothing beats them for tremolo picking because of how heavy they are.

I met this chick I really liked and wanted to practice sex, so I practiced on some guy I met at a gas station...

I hate them. They're too small. Dunlop "The Wedge" FTW .

EDIT: I just saw the Jazz III XL. I have to say that they look like heaven.

They're good for shredding and the like. I have a few but I still use my good old-fashioned 1mm Tortex picks most of the time.

Now I've tried them I couldn't possibly use anything else. Those standard Dunlop ones are HUGE and anything under 1mm is waaay too thin. I was Jazz IIIs were thicker, but oh well.
#36
They help you play better. They are small picks and once you get used to them you will be amore accurate pick-er.

Anyone else wish they made them a bit more grippy? They feel like they could slip out of my fingers far too easily...

i really really love them. personally, i like to feel like i'm actually hitting the strings when i play. they don't flop around or flex so i feel as if i can control it better. i can't really explain it too well.

just buy some and try it out. you'll love it.
