How does it get easier to do pinch harmonics with a bigger pick? I thought it was the opposite way blink.gif


I don't think it is any harder with small ones nor easier with bigones...

I use 1.0mm Dunlop Big Stubby picks. The only problem with them is if i play with a tortex after being used to a big stubby i cant play as well. I might try a Jazz III soon though.

I like Jim Dunlop Nylon 1 mm picks mostly. have tried Jazz IIIs, they seem good but I guess I'm too used to good old Dunlops smile.gif


+1 - I like the grip and flex of Dunlop Nylons, but their thickness is misleading since they flex more than other picks. I use the .88mm which are equivalent to a .73mm or so in other brands.

I just bought a few of the Dunlop Jazz IIIs(the really small red ones) and they don't grip very well, but isn't it true that they have a newer Jazz III version that's bigger. I think I got the wrong ones, but at least they're cheap

Hey everyone, its my first post. I joined GMC last night and im loving it.

Heres my question, what picks does everyone here use? and why?

Currently im using jazz 3's and i like them, but there not perfect for me so im still searching for a better one.


I know this is of no help, but I use Jazz 3's as well. I've tried so many and those are what I always go back to...

I bought my original ones 20 years ago, but that source doesn't exist anymore. I had some more custom made by a guy on ebay, they are exact copies of my original ones, but in the moment I can't find the link to his ebay shop, sorry. There is an onlineshop called Tone Toys ( http://www.tone-toys.com ) that sells tons of different picks, I also bought a stone pick there once, it is not in the same shape as my main ones, but fine too.

At the moment red Dunlop Jazz III's, but soon V-Picks, specifically the V-Pick Small Pointed on advice from the man himself, Vinni Smith. No joke I sent him an email asking him for a pick that could do the following for me:

"I am looking for a pick that has a good grip, will give good harmonics all round and will slice through the strings nicely in faster alternate picked and sweeping runs. Also, a pick that will give good clarity in pick tapping runs, like the one in Joe Satriani's "Surfing With The Alien""

Also I like the size of my Jazz III so I wanted to keep that pretty similar.

Anyway, within a couple of hours, even with the difference in timezone between Australia and America, I had a response back from Vinni himself recommending me a pick that should meet my needs plus give me a fatter tone. Hey, for a few bucks I'm prepared to try a new pick because all the Jazz III is a great pick, it does have it's faults.

Here's the site for all who are interested and seriously, what have you got to lose aside from a few dollars?
