Dunlop Tortex = crisp Feb. 15 2007
By D. K. Malone - Published on Amazon.com
I've been playing guitar for 22 years now. For at least 20 of those years, I've been using Tortex picks, and I will never stop using them as long as I live.

I tried all of the thicknesses over the course of a few months. When I started, I was playing Ramones style punk; strumming barre chords all day like they were going out of style. It seemed to make sense at the time to use the thinner picks, the .5mm or .6mm. (I think these were the red and the orange ones...) They were totally flexible. The red one barely registered at all, it might as well have been a little piece of tissue paper. But at the time it made sense to my dumbass 16 year old neophyte self.

A little later, I discovered the joys of speed metal. I began picking and peddaling on individual strings rather than just strumming chords. This was when I started experimenting with the thicker picks. .88mm, 1.0, 1.14. These would be the green, purple, and blue ones. Eventually I settled on the green .88mm and I've been using them ever since. I can't even imagine using a different pick anymore.

The reason that I fell in love with these picks is that their edges aren't rounded like standard "Fender" style plastic or tortoise shell picks. The edge of a Tortex is cut at right angles, they have corners. When you peddal on a wound string, you get an amazingly crisp and sharp scraping timbre that just can't be achieved with standard rounded off picks. The catch is that of course the cornered edge wears down rather quickly as you play. You will only get this awesome sound for a few minutes. A professional performer would want to switch to a fresh pick at the beginning of each song. A bedroom virtuoso will get more use out of them.

My dream pick Jan. 15 2006
By Bando - Published on Amazon.com
I know a lot of guitarists aren't near as picky about picks as I am. So why should you be? After all, there is no pick that will make you play better and they are all generally the same.

WRONG. I thought that too at first. I figured it's just a piece of plastic, how hard can it be to pick one? I started out with fender pick because they looked pretty conventional and they were moderately priced. I blindly went through about ten of these due to them all breaking.

If you knew me well you'd know that I thrash my guitar...a lot... Even the thickest picks would wear down on me within a week, and most of them were too slick to stay in my sweaty hand during these crash and burn guitar playing moments. I came to realize that I needed a heavy duty pick with a good grip that would retain it's shape for at least a couple of weeks.

At first I thought metal was the answer. I mean, it's hard as rock and most of them come with a good grip on them. But after playing with them I discovered the sound was not to my liking. It sounded too buzzy with metal. That's about the time I discovered tortex picks. I was amazed. They had the best grip I have ever felt and kept their shape for weeks! I instantly bought every size I could get all the way from the thinnest read to the bulky blue one.

Months later I'm keeping a stock of these picks in my house. For solos I prefer the green one because it's got just the right resistance for that fast picking but not too much so that it slows you down. For strumming I use the orange. It's just perfect...

I cannot express to you how much you need to try this pick. Your wasting your money on anything other than Dunlop. Get the tortex and see what I mean!

Good picks June 26 2006

I love these. Nice matte surface for gripping. They never break, and it takes me months to wear one down.

My new Favorites May 9 2009
By Stephen Johnson - Published on Amazon.com

Like other beginner guitarist, I thought a thinner pick meant better speed and playing. WRONG.
I ordered these based on the majority of five star reviews and was not disappointed at all. I love them. My speed has gone up and the guitar just sounds better.
Unlike others I didn't have a problem with the shipping. All the picks arrived in the original package though the box was still unnecessarily large. Concerning the ink bleeding problem other reviewers had, I haven't noticed anything like it. The ink just slowly fades over time thought I will admit I never put them in my mouth so I'm not sure how that factors... Just don't eat them.
Also they are durable as heck. Used the same pick for a month and the only difference is it loses the slightly powdered green it comes in and turns a shade darker. Overall very happy with them and would recommend the picks to anyone and everyone.
