    I use the classic Fender celluloid heavys!
    Love them! What do you guys use?

    I started out with thins but one of my friends dads who plays guitar let me borrow one of his heavys and I have not gone back its been 5 years! IMO they produce a better tone. Problem is they wear out fast are there any picks out there that dont wear out that well but feel like the classic heavys?

    Anyways fire away what do you guys use?

    I just bought a 12 pack of Herco Flex 75's. They are awesome. Good firm grip.

    My buddy turned me onto Jazz 3 picks a couple of months ago. It took a little bit to get used to them. They're thick, but the edges are tapered so it rolls off the strings and since I've gotten used to them all the other picks seem HUGE now. Give'em a shot!!

    Dunlop Nylon Jazz III Picks (6-Pack) from zZounds.com!

    Dunlop Nylon Standards, used .88 mm for 31 years but recently switched to the black 1.0mm Nylon Standards.

    They last forever, I have my "lucky" pick that I have had for over 25 years it's .88 and lives in my wallet.
