  1. Guitar: Theory & Playing
    Wirelessly posted The new band has a lot if tremolo picking faster material. I've always used jazz iii style picks (currently alternating between Jp signature and ultex) but I find tremolo picking lends this big clacky noise and sounds very bad. My technique is fine I think, would this issue be...

    I've been using the Dunlop tortex sharps for probably a couple of years now, and I do like them but I'd like to know if there's picks similiar size and shape but made out of different material. The Dunlop sharps feel really really nice on the high strings, the undwound ones but on the wound ones...

    Seeing all my band buddies use these made me think "This company must have a good thing going for them" So i went online and ordered a set of green jumbo jazz .88's with custom engraving on one side: Only $35 for 100! Pretty awesome deal if you ask me. Anyone else here have picks from these guys?

    Been using JazzIIIs for years. I use a razor blade to "checker" both sides of them for an improved grip. But I got to thinking the other day... is it the best? I picked up some Dunlop Short Stubbies and tried them before, okay, but a bit noisy. Anyone tried the V-picks? They look slippery...

    Awe-in-one Thrash II's. I ordered them when I was drunk on the internet and forgot about them until they arrived at my door. I have to say that I was incredibly apprehensive about using it in a practical setting for my playing (brutal death metal), but I recorded a few riffs with it, and now it...

    It's like you get used to something, use it for a year or two, start thinking about it, and suddenly nothing seems to work. :lol: I'd been using Jazz III Ultex picks for, oh, a year or two now. Then one day on a whim I picked up the slightly larger picks Chris had printed up for MG Fest, and...

    I'm very excited, might make another design. If we could maybe get more of those Jazz White MG picks, I'd probably be really happy. :yesway:

    Probably old news, but I searched and found nothin'... PICK PUNCH Make your own guitar picks! :lol: Fuck yeah. I bet the picks it makes are fucking abysmal.

    I have using dunlop 508 primetone picks (large pointed 5mm thick) which I love the feel of they relax my hand and basically, I like the way they feel. But, I hate the dent in my wallet every time I purchase them, at £2.40 per pick (cheapest I have found) that racks up pretty quickly. I also...

    Are fucking awesome. That is all. Anyone else tried these yet? Thoughts? They're perfect for me, right between a Jazz III and a Jazz III XL size-wise, and that extra slippy surface toward the tip is glorious :smoking:

    I'm going through a pick experiment phase, with my top three favorites being the Ultex Jazz III, Ultex 2.0 Jazz III, and the max grip carbon fibre jazz III. I like them all for very different reasons. Fellow Ultex and/or Jazz III users out there - what is your favorite pick?

    If this is in the wrong place let me know. But What the hell were they thinking? Magneta Picks Revolutionary New Guitar Pick Would any of you use these? Or would they mess with the signal?

    DunlopTV - John Petrucci - YouTube! I'm really interested in trying these out, I never used a sharpie before cause I'm a Jazz III addict and now I'm gonna try these out as soon as I can find a place that carries them.

    I want to make this go. I can vouch that these are wicked nice quality picks, and I think Darren and soon Chris will do the same. :metal: I am willing to purchase and distribute the picks, though I don't want to end up with a massive inventory, so I'm going to ask for committed orders in a...

    http://www.intunegp.com/ Just ordered a gross of 1.14mm and another of 1mm Jumbo Jazz. :yesway: Rob Balducci's album came with a 1.14, and I freakin' loved it enough to order a bunch of my own, with sexy artwork courtesy of Darren, as usual. :darren: It feels a little odd to think that I...

    Hey I just wanted to tell you guys about the cool thing that Dunlop did for me. I have been wanting to try out the Ultex Sharp picks. Unfortunately none of the shops near me carried them. Sure they could order them for me, if I ordered a case of 72 picks. Dont know about you but I dont want...
