        The Jazz III is a great sounding pick but the size made it uncomfortable for me to get a good grip on it but then again the small design of this pick is the whole point. It's made for speed and accuracy for fast players. I love the pick so I got the Jazz III XL series for better grip. It is essentially the same pick but only a bit bigger which gives it a different feel than the standard Jazz III although it is still way smaller in size than a standard pick. It just takes time for me to get used to it but I know I will get used to the Jazz III easily but the problem is that I know once I got used to this pick, I can't go back to using a standard sized pick anymore!

        John Petrucci uses it... What more needs to be said?

        Great for shredding and accuracy. Not recommended for strummers; it's sound too abraisive - for that I use the Jim Dunlop .73mm gray nylon picks.

        Great size, thickness, and shape.
        Never had one break or wear out.
        Cheaper than the ones you can get out of the jug on the counter at music stores.

              Comments about Dunlop Nylon Jazz III Guitar Pick:

              Picks are subjective, and it would be tough for two guitarist to agree on which is best, but for me - these Jazz III picks simply rule the roost. Small and thick, they encourage my picking fingers to get up close and personal to the strings for improved attack and precision. Just try 'em, you might not agree but they're the best in my opinion.

                Comments about Dunlop Nylon Jazz III Guitar Pick:

                When I took guitar lessons several years ago, this was the only pick my instructor wanted me to use. I still don't like to use anything else when I play. These are sturdy and don't bend or flex when you're strumming, so you just hear the chords, not the sound of plastic scraping against the strings. Also I've found other picks to be too big and awkward, like trying to strum with a credit card. I have small hands, so these little gems are perfect for me.

                  Comments about Dunlop Nylon Jazz III Guitar Pick:

                  I am a beginner, but my guitar instructor is an excellent player who has been playing for many years and also uses the same picks. I tried "regular" sized picks first, but found this way easier to hold and it feels more natural. The only thing is the pick is very thick and hard. I think I prefer the sound of softer picks on the steel string acoustic, but I guess it is a matter of preference. For now I'm going with this pick because I like the natural way it feels in between my fingers.

                      While they are great, and seem to have improved my sound, holding onto them can be a bit tricky. Also, something to keep in mind is that you'll typically have to hold your whole hand slightly closer to the strings while playing; I can't speak for all users, but for me that means my fingernails will occasionally brush the strings. That's just more adjustment, however, so it's not a real problem.

                              I heard about these somewhere online or on YouTube, so decided to give 'em a try. The moment I hit the strings I knew these picks were for me. They're small and thick, not much give, so for strumming you might be more comfortable with something a bit slimmer, but for picking they are AWESOME. Precise and tight, I highly recommend the Jazz III!

                                      with a slight modification,involving a pair of pliers and a utility knife,(to add some grip)i slice and dice on the back part of the pick and voila,.... the ultimate in grippage! I tried the carbon fiber max grip and didnt like it as well,,, their not as sharp and pointy as the regular jazz 3. After the slight modification i can really keep a hold on the pick whilst shredding to my hearts content. Also, as others have stated,, once you adjust to these picks,, standard picks feel very large and awkward. these picks are for shredding!, not for strumming soft slow chords.

                                      This pick is somewhat polarizing. I have used it for going on about five years now. I started when I learned some of my favorite players used it. Some of my friends that play have tried it and don't like it. It has more of a learning curve than the average pick and takes a while to adjust to. Once you do, however, it is marvelous and precise. The pick stays with your fingers and hardly flexes, giving you greater control. You will notice some differences in your guitar tone when playing with this pick. It is more for lead playing and is not as easy to use effectively for rhythm as there is more resistance due to the heavier gauge of the pick when plucking through multiple strings. I go between a strat and a les paul most of time. The les paul is a bit easier to play on as the strings have a smaller width between them. WARNING Once you begin regularly using this pick, normal sized picks will feel very large and awkward.
