    Ultex model. Very close to the Jazz III red. It may be a little more finger sticks, it's cool. Gliding on the strings is good. The Ultex is supposed longer resist wear but I do not have a sufficient basis to confirm. Although I have a J-III Petrucci in Ultex too, which is worn very quickly (very good choice anyway!

    Very precise, very rigid (too?)

    Good pick, but then very rigid thickness. Flattering at first glance, providing a sense of control and high precision superior to nylon Jazz III, we end up finding, however, may be missing a bit of organicity and flexibility. But I'm a fan of hard picks that will not bend under pressure, but then I found that expressiveness eventually suffer. We also regret the absence of bevelled edge like other Jazz III does not allow the rope to slide in the same way.

    A great addition to the Jazz III line

    After being a user of the black and red nylon version of the Jazz III for almost a decade I felt that while no pick would ever replace the original it was definitely worth a six dollar investment to try out these two new offerings from Dunlop. While these picks appear the same in shape and size there are noticeable differences when using the ultex model, many of which make this pick an excellent choice in a wide variety of applications.

    These are also around the size of a nickel with a pointed side. They are the same 1.38mm thickness as their counterparts with a slight bevel on all four sides. This variety of the pick is made from ultex as the name implies and is yellow in …

    After being a user of the black and red nylon version of the Jazz III for almost a decade I felt that while no pick would ever replace the original it was definitely worth a six dollar investment to try out these two new offerings from Dunlop. While these picks appear the same in shape and size there are noticeable differences when using the ultex model, many of which make this pick an excellent choice in a wide variety of applications.

    These are also around the size of a nickel with a pointed side. They are the same 1.38mm thickness as their counterparts with a slight bevel on all four sides. This variety of the pick is made from ultex as the name implies and is yellow in color. These picks seem to be the most ridged in the Jazz III line and offer little to no flexibility. They are extremely durable and will last a very long time. They also seem to hold there point even longer then the original nylon versions and create an almost undetectable amount of residue even after long playing sessions.

    This pick offers the player a level of speed and accuracy in picking that I have yet to encounter outside of the Jazz III line. The ultex variety seems to have a less slippery feel to it than the nylon version and may feel more dependable as a result. The added stiffness of the ultex variety adds a good dig feeling when riffing on lower strings and has a brighter attack than the black nylon without the squawk that some encounter from the red. Although it has a better grip in your hand this pick has a very glassy feel as it rides over the strings. I believe it to be the speediest of all the Jazz III picks and is unbeatable for sweeping arpeggios.

    This pick is at home in most guitar application. I feel however that its strong suit is soloing on electric guitar. I find this pick to be a bit too ridged for chord strumming and although the sound is nice on an acoustic it does present me with some difficulties as I prefer the pick to be a bit more flexible when I play acoustic. Perhaps my favorite use for this pick is on electric bass. The stiffness and the sound of the attack make for what I believe to be a perfect combination. Combine that with the enhanced durability and improved grip I will be hard pressed to find a better pick for use on bass.

    I never thought that anything would replace the original Jazz III picks and I find myself correct in that statement. The ultex version of this pick has become a go to pick for different situations and has simply made the Jazz III line a more solid staple in my life. I only purchase these pick now in the 24 pack for $10 because I am confident they will remain in my life in some way no matter what. I am very pleased that the Jim Dunlop has marketed the Jazz III in more varieties and I only hope everyone take a few dollars and an open mind to give them all a chance.

    Excellent (for me!)

    I did not know!
    I usually played on Ibanez Paul Gilbert picks ...
    I came across the street this Ultex Dunlop Jazz III, and I can not do without!
    It is a little smaller than the Paul Gilbert, narrower above, a little thicker and rigid, but cons ... does not wear out as fast! It remains a long pointed, and would like more in the fingers! Indeed, the make and model are embossed on two sides, and suddenly, it did not help slipping.

    I play mostly hardcore and metal, and it suits me for all the examples.
    If you like small picks and rigid, try!

    The ultimate Jazz III?

    Dunlop Ultex Jazz IIIPublished on 03/30/11 at 13:15
    Dunlop's Jazz III picks have become my preference after using my buddy's a couple years ago. It took me a little while to get used to the small size, pointed tip and clarified attack in my tone, but once I got used to having that precision and control, I couldn't go back to the standard sized picks I had been using.

    As I stated in my review of the standard Dunlop Jazz IIIs, these picks have drastically improved my playing! It seems silly that such a small part of the signal chain and gear arsenal can have such a big impact on my playing, but it's true. I had hit a wall in my playing and the scalar runs and sweep picking patterns I was attempting with my standard Tortex picks were coming…

    As I stated in my review of the standard Dunlop Jazz IIIs, these picks have drastically improved my playing! It seems silly that such a small part of the signal chain and gear arsenal can have such a big impact on my playing, but it's true. I had hit a wall in my playing and the scalar runs and sweep picking patterns I was attempting with my standard Tortex picks were coming out a mess! Enter the Jazz III. Smaller for less travel while alternate picking, and harder plastic that doesn't get hung up on the strings, along with a very pointy tip add up to give you fast, precision picking.

    The Ultex takes this one step further. This is an extra hard and "glassy" feeling pick that has even less grab than the standard red/black Jazz IIIs. The pick seems to just slide right off of the strings resulting in a very fast release. This makes shred very accurate and the extra hard and glassy material offers a bright and glassy tone. Notes seem to be more crisp and detailed than they do with standard picks. There are times when I still reach for my standard Red Jazz IIIs, like when I want the pick to have a little more stick and grab. If I'm playing chunky rhythms or layered chords, I usually grab the regular III. If I'm attempting to do some more involved speed playing, or if I just want that bright glassy tone, I use the Ultex! I bought a few of the Ultex IIIs just try out, and I'm still using the first one 6 months later! It has literally no wear at all. These things are very tough and durable! (or I play like a wimp;)

    I love the Ultex picks and can't see paying insane prices for some of the other high endurance picks out there. These are about the best I've used!
