        Havn't used these but I have used the regular purple 1.14 mm's. For anyone who wonders why these 1.14 gauge black picks don't sound the same as the purples, it has something to do with the color itself. It is my understanding that the 'color' of the pick is a crucial factor of the pick's tone. Seems like it was proven at a NAMM show years back. So basically, any pick made of the same material, same gauge, BUT a different color will not sound the same. Hope this explanation helps. Cheers...

        I personally don't see why anyone would like the sound, but if you do, then this is a very unique sort of product that will do the job.
        It's made out something that reminds me of car-tire rubber, and it has a really dead and muted sound. I'm playing a spruce top acoustic with 80/20 Bronze strings, and I like the fact that my guitar has a nice sharp sound to it. These picks take me in the opposite direction, so I didn't like them, but of course maybe you want that sort of effect. I also tried many other picks and I find that celluloid is the best for most of the stuff I play, but occasionally I use an Ultem pick to get a more "ringy" 12-string sort of sound... like when playing a song written for a 12-string, such as "Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald".
        Well made, no mold flash, nice smooth edges.
        Fine, if you like the sound... reasonable price.

              Picks in general are a musicians personal preference. These meet my expectations very well, and would/will buy again when the time comes that I need more.

                          I play mostly metal guitar, so I like thicker picks to push through the strings and give me a thicker chunk sound. These picks are great for that thick enough for the stiffness I need while maintaining a flexibility for alternate and sweep picking. I love the way they feel they just allow me to play smoothly.

                            I got the 1.00mm model of this pick and I found out that it is very much different than the standard Blue 1.00mm Tortex. It has a weird, brighter tone due to the "square" edge of the pick. I know these picks are "punched out" from a sheet of Delrin but the Standard "colored" models have a smooth, beveled edges specially the T3 version (the ones with the Jazz III tips). So the square edges makes a weird, "clacky" bright tone that's not very pleasant (at least to my ears). I'm sticking to the T3 and Standard Tortex.
