For electric, I use a Jazz III, for acoustic I a Dunlop Ultex .73. In my humble opinion jazz III's are the quickest picks out there, and ultex's far and away are the best sounding I've played, so I just got done making a hybrid of the two, ultex in a III's shape and it is sweet. I took some pic's with my cell but they didn't do it justice. Also made this key chain looking contraption with a pick on the end that you can flip around you finger with, to switch from strumming to fingerpicking and back again, love that thing.

Anyways, I'm ramblin, Pit, what kind of pick do you play...and if you have any special designs you've done, please share about the project

I like the Tortex a lot too, they've got a comfortable feel to em, prolly my second favorite for acoustics.

Yellow Dunlop Tortex (the .73mm ones).

I use the big triangle ones though. I like something to hang onto.
#12
Acoustic strumming = .43mm (or .60mm)
Acoustic picking = .88mm
Heavy riffs on electric = 1mm

Just pick up the Dunlop or Planet Waves pics...
And this Harley Davidson 1mm pic i have...
But i lose my pics a lot so no pic lasts too long with me.

I exclusively (well, as long as they are available) use Gibson mediums.

Although for acoustic I tend to use gibson thins for some reason if I am not fingerpicking.
He's a freak of nature, but we love him so.

Dunlop Tortex The Wedge
I have been using the same pick for an year, because I can't find those picks in my current city, and also can't find a better one.
Be amazed, it still works awesome. I use the 1 mm pick (blue turtle)

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

any pick, it makes little difference to me. If I want to tremolo or economy pick real fast I usually prefer a thinner pick.

Dunlop 2.0mm gets the job done for me.

whatever is cheap. Usually fender mediums. Or anything medium that is solid colored, i hate the ones that have pictures on one side, then when you alternate pick it sounds weird on the upstroke.
