These picks are absolutely remarkable. I play on a Martin DX1AE dreadnought style guitar at bluegrass jams most every week and month. I almost always have folks commenting on the great tone of these picks on my guitar and theirs as well when I loan them out. These picks are not the thickest yet they do not bend, meaning you will likely have increased speed and a sharp sound when picking with the very tip of it, as well as a nice fat rhythm when you get to strumming and using a bit more of your pick. These picks are much smaller than what many musicians are used to and therefore take some getting used to. However, even if you do have large or bigger hands than what is considered "average" the grip on these picks will still give you a solid feel. These picks take a very long time to loose their gripping abilities from wear or sweat. Even after a constant four hour or longer hot outdoor jam these picks stay firmly in place without me having to place a death grip on them. I have tried many picks from Tortex material picks to nylon Clayton picks and other brands and materials from Dunlop as well and they just didn't produce the tone or comfort I was seeking. Heck, I've even gone ahead and spent 40 dollars on small company custom made three pack picks that still lack the sound these little Jazzers have. For [$] for a pack of six and [$] for a pack of 24 you are not likely to find a better value in picks or material than these if you are a working class musician like me. Additionally, the size and feel of these picks are wonderful for mandolin playing as well, bringing out the fantastic sharp clarity, chirps, and chops mandos are known for. Go ahead and stock up on these or just try one pack. For [$], even if you don't appreciate them as much as myself or other players, at least you didn't break the bank in the process. Happy pickin'!

I am conflicted about this product. On one hand, it's goal of providing a pick that is easy to grip succeeds beautifully. On the other hand, it has very dull, lifeless tone, and does not have a nice "bounce" coming off the string that I feel with cellulose or Delrin picks. Overall, a mediocre pick.

    Insane grip!

    Comments about Dunlop Max Grip Jazz III Carbon Fiber Guitar Picks - 6 Pack:


    This pick just doesn't slip! The tone it provides is better than most, but not as good as the ultex 2.0. The only real problem was that the picks had a slight ridge on the edge when I opened the pack. Afew seconds with some steel wool takes care of it, but still, A little quality control would go a long way here. If you're looking for something new to try, I HIGHLY suggest this pick, being very superior to every other celluloid or nylon pick in existance.

        I will say this. These are the best picks I have ever used. I have been playing guitar for about three years now, and I have tried ever brand out there. Dunlop does it for me. Best picks. I just wish they made an XL version of the pick. But, I still like it either way. Buy these.

            Comments about Dunlop Max Grip Jazz III Carbon Fiber Guitar Picks - 6 Pack:

            Love these picks. Very stiff, have a nice tone, and very grippy. I think I prefer the tone to my second favorite pick, the regular red Jazz III nylons -- which may also tie for first place.
            Very grippy -- almost too much so, because it's hard to adjust in my grip.

            Comments about Dunlop Max Grip Jazz III Carbon Fiber Guitar Picks - 6 Pack:

            I love this guitar pick A LOT! It has really improved my soloing and produces a nice, bright tone that has some edge to it too. The grip is great and comfortable. The design of the pick is great for precision, but I have troubles with strumming my guitar. If I try to do rapid strumming the pick end gets caught in the strings..so when I encounter one of those songs I fall back to a regular medium guitar pick. By rapid strumming I mean having to play octave chords really quick for example. That's my only beef with the pick and the only reason it got a 4/5..been using them for 2 years.

            Jazz III with grip

            See all my reviews

            Comments about Dunlop Max Grip Jazz III Carbon Fiber Guitar Picks - 6 Pack:

            These picks... are amazing. A friend got me hooked on the jazz III's a few years ago, and since them I exclusively use them. They take some getting used to, but are entirely worth it. I did have a problem with them sliding out from my fingers when I was sweaty though. I saw these the other day and ordered a pack, and let me tell you, they are such an improvement. Same great shape, just with the grip. I was surprised when I first held one, it did not seem to want to come out of my fingers at all. I like this much better than the Dava rubber-grip picks. Get these. You won't be disappointed.

              I wanted to like these and they do feel good and grippy, but I found the grip to actually be a problem while strumming. It felt like it was catching the strings a lot of the time. Granted, my technique probably leaves much to be desired. I was much happier with the Eric Johnson Jazz III and dunlop 474R stubby 1.0mm picks.

              These are quite small and VERY thick. Thicker than any pick I have seen. I got them online so was unable to see or feel first. For me... they are in-usable. I tried grinding the tips thinner but that really didn't work. Just not my style. I now know how much I like bigger and thinner picks. Can't hardly beat the good ol Dunlop nylons.

                First of all, i had never used a pick this small. Now after using these for a couple of years, I don't want anything different for rock and metal. It brings your fingers closer to the strings and gives you an enormous amount of control which translates into a more defined sound even at high speed playing. My hands are always a little moist (hyper hydrosis), and the grippy bumps keep me from dropping them. Love it!

                    I have been using Jazz III 1.38mm nylon picks for a while. I was curious about these. I first had to take a sharp knife and scrape the flashing off. But the "grip" pattern makes the pick rotate when I use it. The other Jazz III don't. So for me, I don't know....

                        I spent so much time getting my power amp, preamp, cords, effects and guitar to their highest level of quality, and the picket were the final piece in the puzzle. I had always used tortex which I had enjoyed for grip and controllability, but the graphite made for a wholeness world. It strikes and release so quickly that it feels like moving from a toyota to a maserati. love these, and of course durable.

                                  Love the max grip on these picks. They will never slip out of your hand. Love the attack these give to the strings also. They really glide smoothly over the strings!

                                  I am conflicted about this product. On one hand, it's goal of providing a pick that is easy to grip succeeds beautifully. On the other hand, it has very dull, lifeless tone, and does not have a nice "bounce" coming off the string that I feel with cellulose or Delrin picks. Overall, a mediocre pick.

                                      A few years ago I decided to retrain myself with this style jazz lll. The micro grip helped with the training and I learned to move faster and angle attack for strumming,ect. Now that I'm used to this style I'm experimenting with different types but these are my go to.
