Melts on your strings, not in your hands

I have been playing Tortex for a number of years, and I thought they were the best there was. Those celluloid picks were so glossy they just slipped right out of your fingers. Tortex had a nice sort of porous texture, so it gripped your fingers. However, after an hour or so, your fingers and hands get clammy, and BAM, bye-bye Tortex pick. So I began a quest to find higher grip picks. I tried the Jazz Max Grip picks, and while those do work, they grip so bad, they're hard to position in the first place. And the small shape makes it harder to play, IMO. I had tried the typical nylon .46, but it's just too flimsy for my playing style (heavily palm muted on 12's). So when I saw these on sale, I thought I'd give them a whirl. Picks really are an inexpensive way to play around with your tone. So my first impression was WOW! They really grip your fingers! Better than Tortex. And they offer very little resistance over the strings (thus the name Ice). However they make so much clicking as they strike the strings. I went back and read the product description and realized it was right there, but I had missed that. I hate that clicking sound. Otherwise, a really comfortable pick. The heavy (1.1) gauge is pretty much the same. I honestly don't see much difference between the two.

These picks are top quality picks made by Planet Waves. The material seems to be the same as Dunlop's Tortex and similar in shape and size as the Dunlop Jazz III nylon but a bit bigger than the Jazz III. It's inbetween the Jazz III and the Jazz III XL Series. However, the similarity ends there. This pick sounds way too dark for my tone preference. That's not a bad thing at all, Jazz players will love the tone of these picks as it produces the warm, dark tones of Jazz guitar music. In my experience, it is even darker sounding than the Dunlop Tortex. The thickness I chose might've had a bit of contributing factor in the dark tone but when I compared it to an even thicker pick such as the Dunlop Ultex 2.0 mm, the Dunlop still sounded way brighter than the Black Ice pick. Jazz players take note, this is your pick! Try some and you'll love it!

These picks are extremely fast and easier to hang onto compared to most other picks out there. The pointed end makes pinch harmonics so easy to do!I've got the heavy gauge picks... you'll love them.

    Great Overall!

    By Jessie V.

    from Tampa, Fl

    Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves 10 Small Guitar Picks:

    This pick is amazing! It feels just like a Dunlop Tortex pick(What I used to use before these) but it's more softer and the grip won't wear off as quick. Also, it's great for solos because the picking tip is a lot sharper. Overall best pick I have used so I'd recommend it.

    Absolutely Great

    By segafreak1

    from Chicago

    Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves 10 Small Guitar Picks:

    These picks are the best I have ever used. Their smaller size is great for accurate playing so you won't mess up on those fast solos or riffs. The tip is amazing in that you can use it in virtually any angle you choose and it won't be a problem. These picks last a really long time. The last pack of these I have gotten was about 5 months ago and I still haven't used the whole pack even with constant use. Lastly, I've used many gauges and brands of picks and these are, by far, the best. You simply cannot go wrong with these.

    Best Picks Ever Made

    Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves 10 Small Guitar Picks:

    I'm 50 yrs old, been playing since I was 8. Used all the best picks out there. These picks are the only ones that don't grab the strings which I like. It feels like I'm playing 5x faster, just makes you shred all over and where ever you want. And the tip makes you hit those pintch harmonics ever so easily. These picks can make you a speed demon.

    Just got 'em and still getting used to smaller size than i've always used. I'm a bluegrass picker and can say they get off the strings a lot faster than i've been used to. So far so good.

        Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves 10 Small Guitar Picks:

        I stumbled upon these picks when I was changing my strings one day. There was one included in each of my sets of Dadarrios (10 Gauge) for a total of two (2). I tried one for maybe 5 or 10 minutes and was amazed, afterward I bought as many as my little altoid box could fit. Who would've thought that a total fluke occurrence of two of these little guys showing up in the pack of strings I happened to have would change my playing instantly and for the better, it's no shock that players use picks like these as well as other jazz sized picks for their playing. They are worth their weight in Gold as far as I am concerned. You will not be disappointed with them if you decide on purchasing them.
