Picks

I know it's kind of a dull topic, but I'm curious what everyone here is using for picks and what applications they are using them for.

Right now I use Dunlop picks exclusively. I use the 1.0mm super grips for electric, since I like the rigidity and the duller, darker tone, and the .60 tortex for acoustic since it flexes a bit better for smoother strumming and generally has a brighter tone.

For the last few years I've been using exclusively the carbon fiber Dunlop Max Grip Jazz III.

I think they're 1.35mm

I like the Dunlops with the turtle on them. Let's see, the green and/or yellow for electric. Yellow and/or orange for acoustic. I haven't felt the need to go switching anything up in quite some time. I like the wear I get from them, but do not like how they sound when they are too worn.

I usually buy picks (don't know what sizes) and put them in two bunches: Thick and thin.

I use thick for electric, thin for acoustic.

Every few years I refill them, because other guitarist always "borrow" them and never return them

I use the red Tortex picks exclusively for acoustic. I have been for years. I've tried to go thicker, but I just can't.

I use Fender Medium or any pick with this shape and a medium feel for electric guitar.
For acoustic I use the Herco Thumb pick. This is just like a medium pick that has a section
that wraps around your thumb. I use it for finger picking and it's easy to switch from finger picking
regular strumming and flat picking. These are like perfect for me doing Praise and Worship on my Acoustic only problem because of the small holes in the pick section, they break a lot. So I go through quite a bit of them. Platefire

You made me think of my "Pick-a-Palooza" that my daughter
gave me. It looks like a stapeler but makes picks. Just stick
Your old CC in there and push the handle down and a pick
Comes falling out. Only problem is I usually have to take a
emorry board and file rough edges off. I just got a new drivers
License and they gave my old one back, so I'm going for
Some DL picks and hopefully I can capture my pix in one😂

Mostly Tortex 1.14 mm--but I also use Gator Grips, Dunlop Nylon picks & Wedgie Delrins--all the same gauge.
I have a few sone picks (Agate, Obsidian & jasper) that I like and some double picks of different types.
Sometiems I finger pick too.

Whenever I see a new kind of pick I tend to try them out--so I have a number of different ones.
But I keep coming back to the Tortex.

I use everything and have for a long time. When writing it changes depending on what I can get from it or what I'm looking for.. I also enjoy finger picking. I got a dozen different V-Picks about 6 months ago and they are great as well.
