Fender Heavies for me!
Depends on the style.
Everything from fingers to 3mm super heavy
Dunlop ultex .60 to 1mm.
Nylon .60 and 1mm,
Ibanez Rubber handle medium to heavy .60 or .70 (great for fast playing)
Big Stubby 3mm for picked bass.
Fender heavys, although I dont use these a lot any more.
I received a 24 pack of red "Max Grip" Dunlop Jazz IIIs from juststrings.com yesterday, and I just played for an hour with one today.
The gripping surface is a lot like the Snarling Dogs Brain picks I used to use, and that's a good thing. It took some getting used to after having gotten used to the smooth feel of the regular red jazz IIIs, but getting used to these "Max Grip" ones wasn't difficult.
And I do think they're easier to hold onto than the regular Jazz IIIs.:idea:
.60mm and .73mm Tortex, been using the .60mm ones a lot during the past couple of days (might have something to do with me watching all these PG video lessons)
For electric, I have come to love the Ultex 1.14 picks. Not to bad for accoustic either.
A very thick v-pick, gone from softer pics to very hard ones and I think they make you more accurate in your picking, no more sloppy playing
Right now Fender 351s in medium and heavy. I do have some V-picks ordered to try. If I really like these picks then my Fenders will be shelved.
1 mm nylons....
Big Stubbies 1.00mm
After all these people using Fender Heavies I might have to give them a try. I have a pick that I have been using for years because I love the feel of it. I'd be screwed if I ever lost it. It has a solid pale green colour (no flaking, etc.) and any indication of who made it or what thickness rating it is has long been rubbed off. Thinking about it, I think it's got to be close to but under 1mm in thickness, and it's large enough to cover the end of my thumb. It has very little (if any) give.
i've never given much thought to picks. but now after all these years of playing, i realize i really should try out a bunch of different ones to determine what works best for me. i'm actually thinking big ole bass picks might be the best for me.
2.0 Gator Grips (the black ones)
I like using either Dunlop Tortex 1.14mm picks (purple) and Fender 351 Matte Delrin XH 1.14mm picks (purple).
This kind of material doesn't wear as fast as regular plastic picks. In fact they last a really long time. Plus I like the string tone you get better than with plastic picks. The pick choice you use is one area often overlooked when it comes to what contributes to the guitar tone you want to get.
1.5mm V-PICK in a fender 351 shape. I'm getting ready to order some 2.75 and 4.10s. Sure won't be using standard picks anymore.
dunlop tortex jazz mediums. most people don't like them because they're so stubby, but im pretty dependent on them anymore.
I used to use fender thins, then moved to .60s and mediums, then to 1.0 dunlops and I just keep wanting bigger. I guess if this keeps up I will be playing with a arrowhead from the flint quarry. I actually can still use .60s (Im really liking brain picks) but I hate those clicky poppy thins.
Heavy Fender teardrop jazz picks
Which picks do you use?
Fender Medium premium celluloid
