I've had my 2.00mm Big Stubby pics for over a year now based on some reviews at amazon and general advice on the internet. Some people waste this wonder material on frivolous things like bulletproof glass and aquariums, but Dunlop's using it as superhuman guitar pics which is its proper use.

They are the best pics I've ever used. The thickness where thumb and finger meet is aided with finger-friendly divots to make it easy to hold these pics in a secure, yet light and relaxed manner. The edge that meets the strings is glass hard, so the only give is from your soft tissues. That combination of lightly holding the pic and delivering picking force to the strings with minimal energy bleed results in better control of the material played (including more speed when desired).

Anything that can make it easier for me to do what I should've been doing years ago is a plus and these pics are a bag of plusses because of it. The 2.00mm ones have been so great that I want to try the ones and threes, too.

With many gift-giving occasions coming up in the Winter, throw out obnoxious hints that you wouldn't claw your eyes out if a loved one or friend got you some of these demonically wonderful pics. And some for me, too. Tell 'em I want some more and mail one of yours to me if you're too shy. Mail two of yours to me if you need me to obnoxiously drop the hints for you.

I've recently been using these with a guitar strung with Dunlop strings and the results have been very pleasing. Don't know if Dunlops other pics would work that way (and I don't want to go back to Tortex to find out), but it was like that time-travel effect when you put instant rice in a microwave. Only, with clean, ringing, crisp sounds and a lot less constipation.

If you're an alternate-picking addict or string-skipping smarty, you owe it to yourself and to everyone who might ever hear you (especially future generations) to use Dunlop Big Stubby pics. Even if you hate yourself and feel you deserve to be bitten on the nose by an angry bull hippotamus more than you deserve to make beautiful, brutal music, your obligation to this universe is using these pics.

I've been playing with these picks for a couple of months now, they were actually a reccomendation from my teacher, at first they were great but as I started playing faster.... and sweating more the pick slips VERY easily, another thing is ... the pick, as it it stubby (duh), it has somewhat of a curvature, this makes your tone warmer BUT doesn't allow you to play as fast and easy (specially on the lower E string)... if you don't mind these small details... amazing pick, as a matter of fact, my teacher has been playing regularly with a single one of these for over 2 years, I'm amazed he hasnt lost it yet...

    Comments about Dunlop 475 Big Stubby Guitar Picks:

    I'd mostly used a medium pick until I tried a Jazz III and realized the value of a stiffer pick. I went a little thicker with some Gravity picks and liked them. I decided to try these since they had the thickness and sharp beveled tip and immediately noticed my picking accuracy improved and the sound was fuller. The indented groove for the thumb and index keeps it in place easy without slippage if sweating. I still float back and forth from this to the Jazz III depending on the guitar I am using--and maybe the mood.

            Comments about Dunlop 475 Big Stubby Guitar Picks:

            I started using these a number of years ago when I started playing surf music for a project. I needed a pick that didn't stick to the strings during tremolo picking sections for songs like Miserlou and Nitro. The lexan is really slick, but the round dip on the pick keeps it in place.

                    Sometimes you don't need a new pickup or amp. These thick picks increase the strike dynamics. I also like to circularly pick with a quarter. There's a place for a thin pick, too. Just depends on the song, etc.

                      Over the past few years I have been experimenting with different picks, constantly grumbling over how much they cost and how. I couldn't seem to settle on one as my daily go to pick. Until now. I like a heavy pick and ordered the 2.0mm. The minute I picked one out of the pack and started playing it was love at first arpeggio. There is an indentation for the thumb to fit to prevent the pick from sliding around and the pick has a smooth rubber feel. Unlike the cellulose and other picks I have tried the pick was a little bit smaller than a regular pick which allows for greater accuracy. These picks are my go to from now on.

                          I have all three sizes of these picks (1.0, 2.0, 3.0). I was originally looking for a good pick to play a song on my bass that required the use of a pick. The 3.0 was too thick for me as I had to keep a tighter grip to keep a hold of the pick while playing the thick strings of a bass. The 1.0 had too much flex for bass and the resulting tone was too bright for me (though it makes an excellent pick for guitar). The 2.0 felt just right for bass. Not too thick as to cause more tension in your holding hand and no flex in the pick against the bass strings. I liked the resulting tone the pick produced better than the tone of using my fingers to play the strings.

                              If you like a thicker pick, 1.5mm or heavier, these are a nice option. They grip well, and the dimple helps to properly locate the pick during playing. There's a little sprue left behind by the manufacturing process, but a few seconds with an fine emory board and it's gone, and to be fair most mass-produced picks have some rough edges. In a world where super thick picks tend to be $$$ these are inexpensive and well made.
