This picks are just great for accuracy, and getting that 'Djent' tone. I first heard about these from the guitarist in Shadows Fall, and decided to try it out. I tried every thickness and now use the 1.35mm (black) ones and very pleased with it. To me, this picks gives a little snappier, rounder, fuller tone than standard shaped picks because of the sharp tip. It takes some getting use to but once you get comfortable with it, you wont feel like using standard shaped picks. Try them out!

I wanted to try this pick because I basically wanted a larger version of the Jazz III. It is a larger shape than the Jazz III, but since it doesn't have the beveled edges it play quite a bit different. If you like square edges to your picks, then this one is for you. I imagine it would be good for heavy riffing.

    Comments about Dunlop Tortex Sharp Guitar Picks 1 Dozen:

    Had a few of these lying around from a year ago, I gave up on them shortly after realizing they were sharps and not the regulars I ordered around that time. However, after playing with Jazz III picks for months(which helped me with my picking method/style/technique), I couldn't manage to hit my metal rhythms like I wanted to: Enter the lost Dunlop Sharp picks. I had a dozen untouched purple sharps, and all I can say is that not only is my playing CLEANER, but also I can play FASTER!!! This is the only pick I'll buy from now on!

      Always liked Dunlop picks. In the old days I used to trim the tip of my picks to make a sharper point. Thought I'd try these already-pointy ones.

      Comments about Dunlop Tortex Sharp Guitar Picks 1 Dozen:

      Not that I'm old (45), but I see youngsters trying to play as fast as they can, but very sloppy with 'medium' or lighter pics. Maybe someone out there can, but I've found the only way to be fast AND precise is with a heavier gauge pick. I played with .88's for years, but when I switched to a 1.0, my speed picked up significantly (along with a lot of practice of course). I may go even heavier at some point.

      PLUS, they're indestructible. The sides by the tip will wear a bit (as they should), but you can do pick slides all day without cutting 'grooves' into your pick.

        Comments about Dunlop Tortex Sharp Guitar Picks 1 Dozen:

        I have been using floppy orange tortex picks for the longest time. Had trouble playing riffs as the attack on those picks were weak. Tried these out and immediately noticed a difference in the tone and clarity of the notes. I thought that the sharp edges would make it harder to strum chords but if anything, they gave them more attack and a punchier sound. Would definitely recommend these picks to everyone of all genres!

        Comments about Dunlop Tortex Sharp Guitar Picks 1 Dozen:

        Tried these recently and like them like all tortex units. They are particularly good for acoustic 12-string leads I have found.Like all tortex picks they sound good and WEAR instead of BREAK! This is a big issue because I'm a bluegrass player. I tear up guitars, strings and picks. I'm sure you metal guys know what I mean also. Crummy, stiff picks (like fender picks)break into a million pieces. These do wear but don't do this. They aren't the best strictly rhythm pick- those softer, flexible dunlops and the old martin picks they don't make any more are. However, these are versatile and are good for lead and rhythm acoustic (and elecetric). The sharp point doesnt work that good on the 6 string martin I have ( I use standard tortex 73's on this) but these sharps in 88 are really good on my 12 string guild. They actually change its sound for the better.

          I am a member of a tech metal band and our lead guitarist uses these because there is are riffs we play that are extremely difficult to play without these picks. We use the yellows and they are like a precision instrument.

            Comments about Dunlop Tortex Sharp Guitar Picks 1 Dozen:

            A few years ago I saw a guitarist using one of these and I had never seen one before. I asked him if I could try it, but I didn't like it. Fast forward a few years, I somehow found one in my pocket. It was the black 1.35 mm, It cleaned up my rhythm playing substantially and felt better playing with it. For a reference as to what it would compare to, its pretty much a standard size jazz III or ultex sharp type pick with a sharper point for people who like more area to grab on a pic.

            Comments about Dunlop Tortex Sharp Guitar Picks 1 Dozen:

            Great quality picks. My only issues are with triplets/galloping (I got the 88s, and I don't know if the thickness is my problem considering I haven't tried any of the thinner ones). I previously used jazz 73s strictly so it could be that I'm not done adjusting to these.To me, they make it even easier to sweep/solo in general than with jazz picks. Like the guy 2 below me said, the ink smudges in like one hour tho. But who buys picks for the fine quality ink the manufacturers put on them?

            Comments about Dunlop Tortex Sharp Guitar Picks 1 Dozen:

            Round tip picks never made sense to me. It seems as if they slide over the string, as opposed to getting more of an attack with sharp tip picks. As a metal player, I found things like alternate picking, strumming, playing big chords great with these. Sweep picking on the other hand took a bit to get used to but just give them a few practice sessions and you should feel the difference. Great alternative to picks like the Jazz 3 I found those way too small and they would always slip. Would rate this 5 stars but still have not found the perfect pick yet.
