Same here! I've used green pick for ages but now like the yellow ones.
I'm guessing you meant 0.7mm, otherwise that's one fat pick (2 3/4 " fat, in fact)!
Jazz III (any type) and Alaska fingernails
My favorite bass pick, the heir to the Herco Heavy.
I use a pick on bass about 15% of the time.
My go-to for Gypsy jazz!
My basic pick for general use is a Ultem/Ultex with a sharp point, but slightly thinner:
.73 and .80 (?) Tortex
Med. Fenders (tortoise or blue MOTS)
My faves are the Tortex though, right now.
These sound interesting! Not available in SA but will order some on Amazon.
Dunlop Ultex Sharp for me, especially when playing an acoustic.
I use Jazz III or a modified Sharkfin.
I'll post some pics of my picks when I next pick up my camera
.73 is yellow, .88 is green.
When I occasionally want to go up to 2.0mm from my 1.5 Max Grip, I always use Gator Grips. MY second favorite!
I've used heavy 1.14 Dunlop Tortex for about 2 years (nylons before that). Those Dava picks feel very similar but have a rubber grip. It's hard to drop. There's a lot of print about how you hold the pick changes the way the thickness feels. IMO, it's mostly hype. But this picks are awesome!
Ernie Ball - Heavy
Dunlop - Gator grip 2.0
It really depends for me on the sound I'm looking for. I have everything from wood to stainless steel as well as hard rubber for bass as they sound like finger picking on bass. I use wooden picks on my Hummingbird acoustic and get a great tone. With my Tele that I now use for gigging, I've changed from Dunlop Nylon to just about any medium hard plastic as they give the Tele that edge on the front of the sound attack.
LOL they're all white...but with colored lettering... yellow and green respectively
.73 and .88
Well, not really........ Like my Iron Maiden picks, I consider these more collector items.
Depending on what I'm doing, these are what I generally use..................
Oh those aren’t the standard Tortex those are flex. I have not tried those. Says they feel more like nylon... but yea the gauges and colours are all the same.
