    Fender wavelength picks, i have used Ibanez, Ernie Ball, Daddario, Dunlop and other pick but Fender ones are my favourite. Especially wavelenght. So soft and flexible, makes me wanna play more. I like extra heavy, need to try other like Extra od Medium too.

    Whats your favourite ?

    I like 1.14 Dunlop Ultex picks. When your fingers start perspiring a bit they get kind of grippy, which I like.

    I don't think I've ever used a Fender Wavelength pick. Having said that, if you get 150 replies to this you'll get 150 different answers! o_O

    Always liked Dunlop Ultex, but I’ve been dabbling in jazz and gravitated toward thicker Dunlop Primetone picks.

    Dunlop Tortex Jazz IIIs, 1.14 mil, as my baseline. Electric, acoustic, always comfortable.

    When I was playing with the Johnny Cash tribute act, I'd use the Dunlop Gator Grip 0.58s for the rhythm strumming. Still have a few around, but it's a less frequent thing now.

    Hi.

    Discovering Dunlop Prime Tone Jazz III XLs pretty much ended my plectrum quest. In 0.73. Recently I got some of the green "Animals as Leaders" ones, just to see if they would be more easily discoverable when they do that mysterious vanishing act that all plectrums seem to delight in doing.

    I like either the black tortex jazz iii or the yellow ultex Jazz iii. Perfect for everything

    I like the appox. thickness of a Fender Medium, and Classic shape, on any guitar.
    So on electric I like either the yellow. 73 Tortex or Ultex picks, and on acoustics I indeed LOVE a Fender Medium ( just a perfect classic tone, and feel on a Martin, for me)

    Plus I bring to all gigs, one Herco Medium Flatpick/Thumbpick as I can do exactly that with one - go back and forth between flatpicking and fingerpick w/thumb

    Am normally a Dunlop Orange Tortex (.60 mm) guy. Guitar player of a GC sales rep talked me into giving Dunlop Big Stubbies a try...went with the 2.0 mm size. Like the indent for holding onto the pick...not sure yet about the leap in thickness as I got it caught up on the strings more than once. Think I'll search for thinner picks with similar grip.

    I've used Tortex reds or oranges for decades. Still feel good to me (I do lots of strumming). I also love Clayton Triangles and Fender medium celluloids. Nothing heavier than .73 or so. Dunlop Flows are pretty cool too.

    For lap steel I settled on Pro-Pik angled brass fingerpicks with the Herco thumbpicks shown above. That particular combination feels completely natural to me, I forget I'm wearing 'em.

    I tried a Blue Chip TD-50 about 4 years ago. I bought 2 and still have them both. I don’t gig but I do jam when I find time or opportunities. I had trouble with grip for years but these stay put (and I can still tuck it in my fingers if I switch to finger picking in a song). I occasionally try some old picks but the clarity of these is stellar. On acoustic and electric.

    F0351850-P.jpg 24483115033.MAIN.jpg Fender celluloid mediums, particularly the confetti colored ones, and also Dunlop, Fender, and Dandrea faux pearl/moto ones, particularly the turquoise ones. Call me crazy, but I've found that different colors of the moto ones sound different. Some colors are brighter sounding and some are darker sounding.

    Jazz III sized Primetones or Ultex mainly...though I have a bunch of Tortex ones to go through too.
