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!

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.

      Comments about Dunlop Ultex Sharp Picks - 6 Pack:

      I love the sound and feel of Ultex picks; they bring life to an otherwise dull-sounding acoustic. The sharp tip helps bring that extra edge and clarity to one's acoustic sound. These picks actually MAKE you sound good and improve your acoustic tone by leaps and bounds. Being made of Ultex, these picks are pretty indestructible too. I got the Sharp .73s because they were the thinnest Ultex Sharps that were available. If Dunlop offered a Sharp .60, I would get those at the drop of a hat.

                  Great pick. Many fast pick lines performed with my other brand pick did not compare to the Dunlop Ultex 1.40 guitar pick. I would say the pick is a game changer to a large degree, as it adds more high-mids to my tone with articulation. The beginning part of my signal chain is my guitar pick - improved my entire tone. I would recommend to try this pick if you are studio recording musician or looking for a tighter overall tone.

                      I haven't shopped picks for years since I had found a good one for flat-picking in the Dunlop Big Stubby 1.0 mm. I was tone checking a few acoustics recently to purchase when I found my Stubby I brought along was cracked and the proprietor offered up one of these to use. Needless to say, I ended up ordering up a few packs of these because they are nice and rigid and to the point. Definitely an improvement in tone for all the acoustic guitars I have. I used to file down the Stubbys in a similar way to how these are already shaped once they were worn. These seem less likely to wear down as quickly as the Stubbys. The bottom line is that they are a stable pick to hold and improve tone and put a snap in the sound of an acoustic guitar. Pick these and pick a winner.
