For a while I have been using some grey Dunlop .88mm guitar picks. They are made of nylon and have a lot of tiny bumps on them to help with the grip. I play guitar in the worship band at my church, and these grips help a lot when playing live.
I bought these at Don's Music Land for about $4 for a pack of six.
Like many guitarists out there, I have tried hundreds of different picks. The reason I have stuck with these picks is because of the feel of them. The raised bumps give you a superior grip to the normal flat guitar pick. I never really had a problem with dropping my picks before, but sometimes they would rotate in my hand, but the grip on these picks stops this from happening.
The only thing I don't like about these guitar picks is the fact that they don't come in any cool designs. They are either solid or black. I know it's not that big of a deal, but a little design would be nice.
These picks hold up pretty well. Eventually, like all guitar picks, they wear down a little bit, but I have never had one break or crack, even after playing some live shows.
Overall, this picks won't make a tremendous difference in your playing, but the grip they give does help when playing live shows, or when your hands get sweaty.
i bought these suckers at sam ash, 5 bucks for 25 picks. excellent deal.
they are the best picks i have ever used. they dont wear down easily at all, ive done many guitar slides with the same pick and it would still play well. they are durable in all gages. ive had the same pack for about a year and i still have 15 or so left and i play ALLLLOT.
they're isnt anything i dont like about them.
durable as a mother. my girlfriend chewed one oup for some reason and it played as good as it had before. and out of the package they have a great grip. after a few months it goes away, but thses are some of the only picks that you can actually play for a few months without them craping out on you.
if you dont lose picks often, buy these. they will last a good while. they are the only picks i use anymore that dont break down after hours of playing. they last. i reccomend them for any type of player beginner to pro, death metal to smooth jazz.
I buy it all the time I need one. I live in Hungary, I can get it in every guitar store. So I usually buy it in one piece, not in stock. It costs 1 bucks. I use Green Tortex 0.88, Red Tortex 0.50, and Nylon 0.88.
It's quality man, quality! I used to play with Gibson, Fender picks, but after a short I headed to Dunlop picks. Fender brakes, Gibson tears, and reverse. Dunlop is the only pick, that solid,flexible, and comfortable.
Green T 0.88 for fast solos, heavy riffs.
Nylon 0.88 for funk, jazz.
Red T 0.50 for chords.
There's nothing I don't like about it.
Good, I've never could brake or tear any.
I don't use other picks, just JD picks, despite I tried many. It's not just mine opinion, most guitarists say the same.
