        So, I've used the Tortex .73mm (yellow ones) forever now. I got to the point where those were wearing down really fast and I wanted to try something new. I decided to try these on a recommendation from friends. So far I love this pick. I'm not sure it necessarily "improves" my sound or tone. I think the majority of that lies in your individual pick attack and overall technique. However, all things being equal, I guess it does sound marginally brighter, and the attack feels slightly more aggressive than the Tortex.

        I love the way this pick feels. The grip is solid without being "tacky" and it doesn't involve some other gimmicky setup like I've sen on other picks (bumps, sandpaper, jelly, etc.). It glides easily across the strings. Basically, I don't feel like the pick is "in the way" anymore and I can concentrate more on other areas of playing.

        Bottom line, give these a shot. If you don't like them, you're only out a few sheckles.

        Overall, the quality and sound of this pick is all there. I just prefer to have a bit more depth to the sound of my picks that the Ultex just can't deliver. The ultex is one of the fastest tracking picks I have used, but as far as sound is concerned, I think it lacks. There are much better sounding, yet unfortunately much more expensive picks in this catagory out there. If I were looking for the Ultex type of sound (which now I know I don't like) I would go with the Cool Juratex. The Cool Juraex tracks like the Ultex while retaining some warmth of say the Tortex pick. Like I said earlier, much better choices out there sound wise than the Ultex.
        The Dunlop Ultex Sharp Picks have a great feel/grip without doing anything to it like adding sandpaper, or scoring it. The "Sharp" tip is comparable to the Jazz III tip. I bought a couple packages of these to try out based off of Paul Riario from Guitar World's review of them. Personally, I agree that they have an excellent attack, grip, and bright tone, but I think the brightness combined with a lack of depth in sound that is created from the pick is a bit overwhelming for electric guitar. That being said, it all depends on what style of music your playing. I prefer a warmer sound with nice crystally highs. The Ultex does NOT deliver on the warmt. They do however track very tightly. I guess I'm just used to the sound of my trusty Tortex III picks. The III's point, like the Ultex Sharp, helps to attain those crystally highs without sacraficing the warmth. I feel that the Ultex is just too "brittle" I sounding. I have the Ultex a 6 because they are not a bad pick at all, just not for me. I could see using these on a big warm Martin acoustic guitar though.
        Dunlop picks are always of great quality.
        Musician's Friend prices are always right; Especially in the accessories department.

            I have noticed the rounder the tip the duller the sound! I have a Fender and a J45 acoustic, they are base sounding, so when you want a brighter sound, Use the ultex sharp pick....
            It helps to moisten your fingers so you don't drop the pick!

                      these are great picks, the ultex picks are all great and bring out the sound of the strings a little better than some, this material will also help you smooth out your playing. it is important to make sure you get the right gauge pick as you well know, but dont be too narrow minded, try a few gauges out. i like the .73 the best
                      p.s. these are the same pick material as the james hetfield black fang pick, yes the guy from metallica. he's got a line of these but they cost more but are a bit cooler lookin and your not as likely to loose them on the floor , love all the ultex picks!!

                          Very excellent guitar picks..the best I have ever used in 30 years..no lie. They feel good, look good, and sound clean and clear. They wear very long, and may even sound better when the pointed tip begins to bevel with extensive wear. I have been using one pick, 2 hours a day, for over three months and it sounds great, and the delicious worn edged bevel makes it glide like butter over the strings. I particularly like the color also. They are not yellow, as the picture shows, but instead they actually look and feel like a clear honey amber. Right out of the pack they glide like butter over the strings...and they get even better as they wear. If you have not tried the SHARP pointed pick yet you will be delighted with them. That sharp pointed pick is just so eager to dig into those strings. Thank you Musicians Friend, for helping me to discover them! I will never use any other pick again!

The grip is solid without being "tacky" and it doesn't involve some other gimmicky setup like I've sen on other picks (bumps, sandpaper, jelly, etc.). It glides easily across the strings. Basically, I don't feel like the pick is "in the way" anymore and I can concentrate more on other areas of playing.

                              Bottom line, give these a shot. If you don't like them, you're only out a few sheckles.

                                  Comments about Dunlop Ultex Sharp Picks - 6 Pack:

                                  This pick is a great balance of size, texture, and tone. It's bright, but not shrill, and does not move in my fingers which is nice because I can relax my grip, which improves control. I am exclusively using these now.
