Fender 351's in medium. I prefer the confetti color scheme cause they are easier to find if you drop them. LOL

I have been using the Dunlop Jazz III as long as I can remember, which isn't saying much, I forgot what I had for dinner last night. A year ago I switched to the Jazz III MAX-Grip. It allowed me to loosen up my grip on the pick with out dropping it. I also just found the Jazz III MAX-GRIP Carbon Fiber pick. Should last a long time if I don't lose it.

Can't justify spending that much on picks. As it is I think the cost of one dozen Fender 351's is too high - and I usually wait for the 2 for 1 sales so I can get two dozen for the price of one dozen. Haha

Oh mine are usually lost or "borrowed" long before they get a chance to wear out or break. Thats unavoidable when you are playing gigs every weekend. LOL

Dunlop Delrin pinks (.46mm) -- they sound a lot like celluloid, feel a bit like celluloid on the fingers... but warmer tone.

Lately I've been relying more on Fender Delrin 50's -- slightly softer tone than the Dunlop pinks, hotter sound than Dunlop Tortex 60's, which are great picks but.... Just don't like the tone of them anymore.

I like Fender thin celluloid picks, also, but they add a lot of treble to my already trebly guitars.

They improved the formula, though. The Fender thins don't break as quickly as they used to.

I sometimes punch a hole near the top center of a pick to get a better grip on it -- works with Delrin and nylon pics fine -- haven't tried it on celluloid, though. Would probably crack.

I use a D'Addario Black Ice pick. It is the size of a Jazz III, but is thin enough to strum with.

I use the Jazz III also. I like the shape of the edges - really allows me to control the sound of the articulation, and they don't squeak or scrub when they start to wear.

I buy them by the dozen - they don't cost that much.
