Hey everyone,

I havent seen a pick thread here as of yet, i mean what picks do you guys use?

I use dunlop tortex sharp 1.5mm but though of changing it Dunlop jazz III but did not know how tiny those picks are.(ordered them online gawd pictures can be deceiving rolleyes.gif )
Still i think ill give em shot, i think smaller the pick the more you hold it better grip.

So what do you guys use? smile.gif

Dunlop .88mm
switched to from Fender Med's and loving it more. Fender's tend to get rough. Like the idea of ebony picks though.

Holy crap, Marcus! Not only made of stone but lasted 20 years O.o

Do you use it in all the BG videos and such? I wanna see that thing, that seems sweet, you'd think it would sound weird...

Anyway I use Dunlop Tortex 1.18 I like the sharp ones too but my local music store always seems to run out of them when I go to get some and I always mess up when filing a pick or I'm too lazy.
