As the topic states, do you have a single favorite pick? One specific pick you always use and cherish?

That is priceless man, you might be my new idol.


TS, whenever I see your username, I misread it as "isuckhardcocks."

Just had to get that out there.

Silver Herco flex 75 plectrums for guitar and the big green triangular tortex dunlop ones for bass.
Yeah, now you're gonna die wearing that stupid little hat. How does it feel?

Help me to live.


I make custom guitar wiring harnesses and I'm pretty damn good at it!

I care what guage pick I use, but not about any one in particular. A pick's a pick.

I had a favorite pick once, then my sister decided she wanted to learn guitar [on my good $600 acoustic with no experience ].
She ended up chewing the pick to pieces then snapping it...

no more favorite picks
...just picks that I hate

Do mean a favourite type of pick? If so I use Dunlop Nylon .88 mm for rhythm parts, and Dunlop Tortex 1mm for lead parts. If you mean a specific favourite pick then no, I just use any that are around.

There's nothing special about it, just a Snarling Dog Brain pick, .88mm but for some reason, there's one in particular that I prefer to use. It was the third one out of the pack and feels the same as the rest but I like it more
#7
I still use the first pick i brought form about a year ago so that would probably mean its my favourite
#8
The only pick I have left, a purple tortex, has been my only pick for several months now. It's been worn down just the way I like it.

Dava control pick. It's got the tip of a jazz III and a base of a normal pick, with a little bendy part in the middle. Gives a good mix of the two, plays better than jazz III's imo, makes rhythm easier than a jazz III and lead easier than a standard pick.
Quote by Vornik
Thanks for the advice. I'm going to put it, along with your other advice, into a book, the pages of which I will then use to wipe my ass.
#12
I did have one: It was the first 1mm Dunlo tortex pick that I ever got, and it was used so much that it went translucent Now I just use whatever 1mm tortex that is to hand
#13
I only use Dunlop Jazz III black XL, but I have a bag of 20 that I dip in and out of.
#14

a favorite one pick no. a type of pick yes, purple dunlop gator grip and green dunlop tortex. I can never remember the gauge i know its in the .80s, thank "god" for the colors.
#18
Well my favorite is the Dunlop 0.73mm Tortex pick but I really don't care which pick I use. I hold all my picks in the little pocket of my guitar bag and whichever one stays between my fingers first, I use.

A pick's a pick.

Yes,,yes indeed. There is one. And its a plastic thingy that comes with mailboxes when they are brand new. Ok Ill explain: In norway (and probably a few more places) the postal services have a special key to mailbox racks... you know the kind with lets say 5 boxes in every vertical row and a bunch across. The mailman can open each row with his little superduper key.... THAT lock that comes from the mailbox manufacturer has a little plastic thingy that prevents it from locking befor the rack is monuted on the wall.... I work as a locksmith and mailbox-screwer-upper-guy... so I have a steady flow of new great picks coming in... they are transparent green and very similar to fingernails exept they are VERY tough.

I don't know if it's got a specific name, but it's Jim Dunlop and on the back it says USA Nylon. I like .60mm, I've got two of these and even though I've got heaps of picks, I always pick these two out of the bunch

One I have had since I started playing, that my mum got me when she went to America (I think it was Nashville) to compete in the world finals of a singing competition.

And that's 10 or so years ago, so it's lasted about 1000X longer than any other pick I've owned.

I only use the dark blues Tortex picks, but there's a particular one I bought in Belfast that I always use when I'm playing something really tricky, it always seems to make me play slightly better. I should probably keep it somewhere safe, rather than just lying on my desk at home...

Nope. So long as is it a black 1mm Jim Dunlop USA nylon pick, I'm fine. I don't have a favourite specific pick, but I will only use one type of pick
#33
Orange Blue and Green Tortex's

No idea what hickness they are, just that depending on the mood im in one of those 3.
#34
Naw. I always buy packs of the same pick, so I just grab a random Tortex 1.14mm out of my drawer.
#35
if i commited to just loving one pick they would either run away or find someone else



i like the chunkiness of the dunlop combined with the intelligence of the SEARCHBAR

#36
if i ever do use a pick i use some shark fin one i found in my room a while ago. no idea of the gauge or who made it, it has all been rubbed off, its got ridges on the side and i have no idea what they're for
DONT RISK IT, BUY A BASS AMP

I use a black 1mm Jim Dunlop nylon pick for just about everything now. It sounds so good on the strings, and feels just right for me. I find that tortexpicks and such tend to bounce around between my thumb and finger like crazy.

I like 0.6mm tortex (the orange ones) after 7 years I've pretty much settled on these, I've heard good things about Jazz IIIs, I might try one to see what it's like.

If you mean like 1 pick that I keep safe and always use then no, I wear picks out pretty fast.
