I have a TON of assorted picks laying around my house, Dunlops, Fenders, etc....

The only ones I ever use are Fender Heavys (348 style I believe).

I'll have to expand my horizons and try some others.

And the result is ...

1.14

At least for the time being. It feels comfortable, helps a lot with feel on the speedpicking and surprisingly really helps my pinch harmonics. I think I could go thicker though, maybe I'll work up to that smile.gif

Thanks for all the input guys!



My preference, although I might go to the 1.5 someday. Never thinner. Get the ones with the alligator picture. I think dunlop makes others. Those seem to be more crisp. I get them 3 for a dollar locally.

andrew -

i just picked myself up a pack of dunlop 1.14 gators and man they are fantastic... i also got a set of dunlop jazz III which force you to use just the tip of the pick which is a great way to practice... but i have to say the gators are most definitely the best picks i've owned...

I'm using some thick Eddie Ball's the dude at the shop gave me but I just ordered one of these along with a theory workbook.

I won't be able to give it a good workout but I'll let you guys know what I think.

I expanded my horizons and tried the Dunlop 500 in .96, 1.14, and 1.5.

I ordered 10 of each right away.

I can't decided which one I like best, but I amleaning towards the 1.5s.
