      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."


      Add some bright tone and biting attack to your sound. Order this pack today.

      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:

        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.

              Fast & Durable. Best pick I've ever used.

              By Eric Branchaud

              from Chepachet, RI

              Comments about Dunlop Black Fang Pick - 36 Pack:

              I've tried sharpening my picks in the past with mixed results, but these picks nail it spot-on. The pointed tip lets you play fast, but still keeps your attack from getting muddy even with heavy gauge picks. I'd get a small pack of each size to see what you like best, but you probably want to get something a little heavier than you normally use. I used to use picks in the .7-.8 gauge range to get the attack I wanted, but I use the 1.14's in the Black Fangs and am very happy with them.

              The ultex material plus the smaller tip means that these wear extremely slowly. I play 1/2 hour to an hour a day and I can get a good week or so out of a pick before I see any noticible wear. The grip is pretty good, but I still cut a crosshatch into them with a knife to get a better grip.

              I've been playing guitar for 20 years and these are the only picks I've ever liked enough to buy in bulk.

              These picks are fast and accurate. Best I've ever played. I would enjoy them even more if they came in a slightly heavier gauge.

              this pick is amazing! ive tried nearly every other type of material for picks and this beats every one! the standard ultex would slip out of my fingers, but for some reason, either the paint or prints on it, this stays in my hands. you wont be disapointed at all with this pick

              Speed picking? You need these

              Comments about Dunlop Black Fang Pick - 36 Pack:

              For years I have used music store picks , you know the 4 for a buck varietys. I always had them flying across the room when i try to triple pick or jam out hard. I like Hetfield so I gave these a shot, I love em they are sharp, thin but really stiff, and the DO NOT SLIP. Much better than any others I have tried. Cost more but hey If you wanna play some Slayer well worth it.
              The print on these doesnt seem to wear even after much use, which don't matter to me but some people might care about.
