right, so i've been using dunlop gators (1.14mm and 1.5 mm) for a long time, but i decided to finally try a jazz 3, and WOW, what a huge difference. suddenly i'm able to tremolo pick wayyyy faster than ever before, and hopping strings doesn't cause any slowdowns anymore. also, the smaller size helps in playing pinch harmonics tremendously! i know there are a ton of pick threads, but i thought i'd just throw this out there for anyone who hasn't ever tried these picks. it takes a little bit of getting used to, but i've only been playing with it for a day now, and it's great. rawk

Ive tried em, and they are much easier to pick fast with than normal picks in my experiance. If you havent tried em yet, you should.

I prefer the Tortex Jazz IIIs over the standard Black Stiffo Jazz IIIs.

Yo wassup, I'm trying to expand my musical horizons if you know what I mean, so can anybody reccomend me some cool Juggalo jazz?

I loved the nylon Jazz IIIs, but the Ultex ones are fantastic. The nylon blacks/reds would get totally obliterated after a single pick slide, but you can pretty much saw wood with the Ultex Jazz IIIs without seeing a mark. Oh, and the reds/blacks also had this horrible habit of rocketing out of my hands

I prefer the tortex jazz, 1.14mm.

More grip surface, a sharper point, and its less slippery.

#16
Break?!?

I don't think I've ever broken a pick. What thickness were you using?

I like the dunlop 1.5, I just need really thick picks, it feels weird without them

Are these picks this good? i use dunlop tortex .73 and they are fine with me but i might have to try these out.
#24
Love Love Love Jazz III's of course my Dulop Stubby is a close 2nd!!!!
If you start a reply with: I have never played one but I have heard good things about it! Your opinion is invalid.
#25
I like them too. Recently I tried switching back to Tortex but I just couldn't... it was too big and bulky. I felt like there was to many different ways to hold it because it was so large. I had to get back on the Jazz. Been happy ever since I did. Picking is so.... fluid I suppose.

No offense, but I find it hard to believe you've broken a 1.5mm pick.

Considering that is one of their thinnest picks, I'm not surprised.

Word.

I just started using the pitch blacks. Not really any different in terms of shape or thickness, but by golly do they look cool

I changed from Dunlop .73 to Jazz III's and I have never looked back.
For me they're perfect. Some people can't get used to small picks, but once your used to playing Jazz III's, most other picks feel too big to play with.

Hmmm, I've never tried those. Maybe I will.

Right now my favorite picks are .60 mm Dunlop's "The Wedge" They're a bit bigger than regular Tortexes (sp?) and have more of a point.

I just can't fathom a pick that thick actually snapping.

I think what he means by "broke" is cause the tip to wear away to the degree that it's no longer a triangle, something I've done with a lot of picks. As well, many picks will warp and cease to be straight over time, although that's something I appreciate because it makes it fit my fingers better.
I have no pick preference in terms of brand; I own about a hundred picks and I mostly use the ones in the 0.75-1.25 range.

I tried the jazz III about a year ago, and they're still my favorite. It's wierd, because I'd tried smaller picks before and hated them, but something is different about the jazz III. What's even cooler, is that I feel so much steadier now when I use a full-size pick, since I'm used to the smaller kind.

+1 for the jazz III!
#37
I've been using these picks for a couple months now and I love em. Helped make my playing a lot clearer and alternate picking is way easier.
#38
I just use Black Jazz III's or the Green Dunlops (.88?)...I'm just used to those, but I prefer the Jazz.
This ends now, eat the goddamn beans!

I took a break from Stiffo Jazz IIIs to try out the Tortex version. I prefer the feel of the Tortex, but they wear out after about 2 to 3 hours of playing (I used the thickest ones available, the purple 1.14s). So I'm using Stiffo JIII's again. I'd love to try the Ultex version, but they're virtually nonexistant here.

Thats the only thing I can think of happening to a pick that thick.

I burn up my Tortex Jazz pretty fast but a "worn" pick is not a broken pick.
