Used a reshaped 1960 quarter for ages, then lost it about 1989, purple tortex since then.
Love them Dunlops. I use the next thinner. .60. I've got a few of the .46's too. I never knew they actually have lighter (.38) until I stumbled across a pack of them recently.
But there's always a .60 and a .46 in my wallet. Just in case....
that one, 1.0 size.
it gets a crisp attack like tortoise shell or tusq, but it doesn't 'chirp' like those picks can do.
First one, top row. (Thanks Mal) But not till I drill a bunch of holes in it. I drill all my picks.
The green one. No doubt my favorite.
Only pick I can use anymore. Nothing else feels right.
Green Dunlop tortex, 0.88mm. Why? First one I picked up.
Same here. Tried them four years ago and never looked back. I use the red, purple and green ones.
I go back and forth between the Herco 75 and Ultex Jazz iii for electrics. For my dreadnought and cowboy chords I like Fender light picks.
Short answer is "no," but I'm partial to Tortex red (.50) and orange (.60).
Sometimes if I'm just strumming my 12-string, I like something more floppy, like the Dunlop nylon .46. I never really bonded with "thick" picks.
have yet to find the perfect one, but have settled on the V-Pick Freakisly Large. It's huge, which I like, and is 2.5mm thick. I have a hard time with slippage, and these fit in the creases in my fingers and the material is pretty grippy when it warms up. Have never dropped during gigs. Great for hammering chords.
I don't like the chirp it gives when picker higher strings though. Need to figure a way around that.
+1 on this plectrum...
Same but .73.
I use these. I was using .60's but they were a little too thin.
Me too....grey ones(1.0mm). Found no need to continue searching. Love the Snarling Dogs.
I like the Planet Waves ones with the raised logo, heavy gauge. Good grip for sweaty gigging.
For thumbpicks, I like Ernie Ball.
I use these at home, because I have a lot of them.
If you aren't using one of these (Wegen) you're missing out. Alright, I'm kidding, Though these are quite popular for gypsy jazz playing. And surprisingly, even though there are about 3/16" thick, you can move damn fast with them.
This is actually my pick of choice. I love the Ultex material. It provides a lot of rich harmonics. Has some similarities to finger nails.
Love a jazz pick because the small size provides better control. Sure they take more technique when wildly strumming. You can just go flap, flap, flap like you can with a big ol' thin pick, but it's not hard to get the technique down. Plus they are easy to palm when switching back and forth with finger picking.
My jam space is in our laundry room/spare bedroom, so whenever I need a pick I can always just grab one from the filter in the dryer.
My favorite for the past year is this...
These are my back ups
