I went by the local music store today looking for these picks, none in stock but they ordered some for me. $4.36 for a pack of 6 was the listing in the catalog they had there which is also the price they passed on to me. It will probably be a couple weeks before I see them though. In the meantime I decided to grab a Jazz III XL and a Jazz III Ultex. I had never seen the Ultex before, It's kind of a yellow or gold color that is translucent.

Are these the size of a regular JazzIII? I use the XL's because the regular Jazz picks are so small!


Ditto.
If they eventually make em in an XL JIII I'll try them.

Got them on friday, but didn't have enough time to give it a decent try.. just some simple warmup patterns and few AP-Excercises - worked OK so far. Tonight I'll try to improvise/solo - I'll let you know smile.gif

I think they may be slightly bigger than a standard Jazz III but smaller than the XL's for now.

Well darn sad.gif That's a bit disspointing IMHO, but some folks like the JazzIII size. Maybe they will make an XL petrucci?

Well I just got back from the music store with my new JP Jazz III's and I thought I would share a couple pics to show the size comparison to the standard Jazz III's, the XL's and the new JP Jazz III's. I laid the new JP pick over an XL and also laid a standard Jazz III over the JP.
As the pics show the JP's are actually very close to the size of the XL's so if you like the XL's, the JP's might be alright for you.

Thank you for that AKRich.
I will def try a couple of those. Only a little smaller than the XLs. After a day I probably wouldn't even notice.

Got to try these the other day, finally. I am still not a fan of the larger size picks, but these things are pretty sweet. The grip is nice and they definitely don't wear down like the Jazz III's can.

I'm having a bit of a hard time getting accustomed to them smile.gif It feels like they are too tiny at this point, as I've only been using slightly larger picks till now. But I'm getting there smile.gif

I've had a few now for a week.
I like the tone off the string but they're just a little too small from 'what I've been used to'. Better than the Jazz IIIs for me but not as nice comfy as the XLs.
I'm going to try and use them for the next two weeks and see ...

Unfortunately, they still feel small... and I am having a hard time to do the following thing:

After pressing REC when recording laugh.gif the pick just won't slide into place between my fingers because of the JP logo and I start swearing like a sailor because I miss the first beat. I can do this with all the other picks I used, but I will give it some more time smile.gif

Seems like they need to make a larger version of this pick or maybe shave off the logo? Petrucci seems to like small picks and God bless him, but I like em a bit bigger smile.gif

So far I am digging them, the JP logo and rough area is giving me that extra grip I think I needed, I seem to drop them less than the standard Jazz III's, so thats a good thing.
Is it just me or does the beveled edge seem slightly different than the standard J3's? Like they kind of roll off the strings a little differently?
