These feel VERY close to the fine but expensive blue chips, the difference being you can take these out of the house without worrying too much. I have tried several shapes and thicknesses, this one is best for mandolin (for me anyway). It's a little small for guitar. My favorites are the various sizes & gauges of the triangle shape (the large triangle 1.4 mm is a great all-purpose pick for me). I'm not as wild about the grippier (raised lettering) variety, they seem to be a harder material and occasionally the grippy part can catch on the strings if you're not careful, but they are still very good picks - they obviously take time and effort to round and bevel each pick, though it's a little less obvious with thinner gauges. Try several, it's a small investment.

I would love these picks if it wasn't for the little "click" noise every time the pick strikes against the strings on my mandolin. I don't know how it would be on a guitar. They are easy to hold and feel good between my fingers. They slide off the strings probably better than any other picks I've ever used. I've only used them a few times, but am wondering if maybe that "click" will go away with extended use. I might keep using them (at times) for a good period of time to see if that issue gets better!!! I gave one to a friend of mine that plays guitar to see how it works for him. He'll surely put it to the test. If I can, I will submit another review later about them! For the price I would suggest that everyone give them a try to see how they work for you. They're just not quite "making it" for me at this time!

    Good clear tone but I find that for the cleanest sound you should hold the pick parallel to the strings.

        Comments about Dunlop Primetone Semi-Round Sculpted Plectra 3-Pack:

        I originally got these picks after I decided to pick up the mandolin recently and they work very well for that. I tried them on my guitar even comparing the many other picks that I've accumulate over the years and these pick and I can't believe how much better sounding and how much easier it is to play with theses picks. I was using the Ultex sharp picks before, and while they are great picks, these Pimetones just seem right to me.

                Comments about Dunlop Primetone Semi-Round Sculpted Plectra 3-Pack:

                Have previously used the same shape/thickness "Dunlop Primetone Semi-Round Shape with Grip" (the translucent version). This one produces less volume and less 'cut' than the "Grip" version, although they're supposedly made from the same material. I would say tone/volume-wise this pick is similar to the Golden Gate mando pick. The "Grip" version is more on par w/Wegen mando picks I've used. Lately, I prefer the "Dunlop Primetone Triangle Shape 1.5mm" (the full size triangle) for mando.

                  I play both a standard six string and bass. I was using my trusty fender mediums for both until i started to notice extra strain on my strumming hand after a long band practice with my bass. These really stood out to me for the fact that they were semi rounded, 1.3mm and claim to produce a better sound. After just a few short weeks these are my new bass picks! The bigger size feels more comfortable and natural in my strumming hand and alleviates most of the strumming tension. Did i mention they sound great too! I may be looking in to replacing my old fenders with some nice new primetones.
