OVERVIEW

Tough and sturdy for tone and attack.

The Dunlop Black Fang Pick - 36 Pack is a collection of special picks.

Riff master James Hetfield's venomous style has inspired many. Preferring picks with a bright tone and biting attack, Hetfield looked to Dunlop for the perfect tool for his fierce downward picking style.

Based on a vintage tortoise-shell pick, the Black Fang is made of tough, sturdy Ultex material with a defined tone and sharp attack. Its pointed and contoured tip gives you ultimate speed and control-perfect for players looking to unleash their tone clearer, faster, and with unrivaled precision.

"It's fast, bright, and strong because of its hard point and material," says the man himself. "It gives you everything you need-just add venom."

I have thoroughly played many types of guitar picks, from Jazz III's (large and small), to all types of dunlop tortex, fender picks.. you name it. My friend gave me one of these and it is the only pick I'll use. Playing anything from metal riffs to incredibly fast solos is extremely easy with this pick. The tonality is also something worth mentioning. The attack when you hit a note is perfect and you can hear it -- very expressive. Sweep and tremolo picking are easy as pie. Rhythm playing is really tight and you can easily get that fast metal gallop that you hear in a lot of metallica songs better than any other pick I've tried. I use the 1.14 and am completely satisfied. The ultex material durable.

Not much to say about a pick but I got the thickest ones and they're pretty stiff like I like them to be. A little too pointy but a few passes on a sanding block and they're useable. Too high priced but that's what you get with a signature on them, nice carrying tin but I won't be re-buying any. I'll stick with Dunlop Tortex 1.14's
Good gripsion, yea I made that word up. It's pronouced "grip-shun"
Well made carrying tin.
Good deal if you like overpaying for your picks.

      Comments about Dunlop Black Fang Pick - 36 Pack:

      I know some people don't even think about which pick they use, but it can make a big difference in your tone. This has a very aggressive attack to it, perfect for very percussive rhythm lines and riffs. I've been using these for a while now and find them to be very easy to pick with. If you are going for a good, solid metal tone and attack, these are for you!

                Comments about Dunlop Black Fang Pick - 36 Pack:

                I got one of these in EMG's Het Set. Used it till it wore down to a nub, and I was hooked. You can't beat the articulation. They last a long time too, I really like the material used. I searched for ones without the name on them and they only come in an ugly yellow colour. I bought 36 of them 2 years ago and went through 5 I think and I play a lot. Yeah you are paying more and yes it for a name, But they are a quality pick so that excuses it.

                  Used to play this type for more than a year and it just matches my needs and style of playing, especially with its biting tip. No need to sharpen tips of other picks!

                    Needed a balance between thin, yet durable. Perfect pick for soloing and any lead guitar. As strong as a heavy pick, yet as lightweight as a thin pick. Definitely worth its price tag.

                    These picks melt into your fingers. Great attack and easy to be precise. The .94 bite a bit more than the 1.14. That's more of preference. Hetfield got it right with these.

                    Comments about Dunlop Black Fang Pick - 36 Pack:

                    I had read this comment after I ordered the picks but thought I would mention it again anyway. Thickness is great but the tip of the pick needs to be filed down a little. I did not like the pick when I first tried and the remebered a comment I read. Unbelievable difference. Now I have 71 more picks to file down. I would give it a 4.5 but did not have that ability, thats why it got a 4.
