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.

      Best Uses

        Comments about Dunlop Ultex Sharp Picks - 6 Pack:

        I'm a semi-pro bassist who normally plays fingerstyle, but for some hard rock songs (Guns'n'Roses, Stain'd, etc) pickstyle can sound much better. I had been using Dunlop Tortex picks, but a friend recommended the Ultex and I prefer them because they have a slightly snappier attack.

        I also prefer thinner gauges. When I first started playing pickstyle I went with thicker picks because I thought that's what bass players should use, but thicker picks sound too close to fingerstyle, and when I use a pick I want to sound like I'm using a pick.

        The only negative to the Ultex picks is that they are nearly transparent, so if I drop one it can be hard to find, unlike the bright yellow .73 Tortexes. I always have extras in easy reach, but I'd rather not lose 'em.

        Ultex do seem to last longer than Tortex, but it's hard to say for sure because I'm only an occasional picker.

            Comments about Dunlop Ultex Sharp Picks - 6 Pack:

            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.

                  Some people say the jazz III is the be all end all for guitar picks. I'd tell them they haven't tried Dunlop's ultex sharp picks.

                  The material is provides the best grip I've ever felt, it's the perfect amount of sharp, and the 1.00 mm thickness provides minimal give. I use it for most of my guitar playing. I've even played bass with this thing.

                  Comments about Dunlop Ultex Sharp Picks - 6 Pack:

                  These picks really brighten up a dull sounding guitar/strings. I started with Dunlop Tortex 88mm picks that I would sharpen myself (back in the 80's when I was playing lots of speed metal) and then moved to the Jazz III sure grips in about 2007 which I still use because they're amazing for both tone and articulation. I tried some of these Ultex sharp and Jazz III picks on my acoustic and it really brightened it up, which it needed. I find them to give a little audible "scritch" sound on the attack when used with my electrics so I stick to using them on acoustic and they deliver niecely, giving a nice crystalline attack that Taylors have and my Martin doesn't. Amazing how much picks can affect your tone. Definitely the cheapest tone changer out there.

                  Comments about Dunlop Ultex Sharp Picks - 6 Pack:

                  I have never been one to care about strings or picks, but this kind of blew me away. I obtained them from a variety pack initially , and these picks stood out. Right away, I like the feel of the pick, so I started playing with it and it just felt right. The sharp tip helps keep articulation and makes sure the pick catches the string when I mean it to. The size of the pick feels right at home if you're a tortex user. Jazz Picks are too small and Gators too thick. These picks feel great and I recommend them!

                    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!!

                    Comments about Dunlop Ultex Sharp Picks - 6 Pack:

                    I love these picks. The reviews I have read here all point to the fact of how they sound and play. I have tried every pick that remotely seemed to satisfy my particular needs. No luck until Ultex. For me, the grip is the most important aspect. Nylon with the grid, good concept, but the ridges get in the way. Tortex loses it's grip as the logo wears off. Gator grip are no better, in my opinion.
                    What exactly is Ultex, anyway? Whatever it is, it is the most superior synthetic substance I have come across. The molded construction, coupled with the tapered point, is great idea. I use the .90 sharp. I switched from the Tortex .88 (Green). If you don't like the sharp point, there are the same picks without sharpness, like the Tortex, but with lasting grip. The only real problem is keeping up with them. You'll lose 'em before they wear out. I've turned many players on to them. The only pick I have actively spread the good word about. My overall review...Simply, GRIPPING!

                    I won a package of misc items from Dunlop, and a full set of Ultex Sharps were included. I've been using Clayton Triangles for years now, which are great picks as well, but these Sharps have a great grip, and pick attack. I use them here and there, and I'm not totally sold that they're for me, but still equally great.

                    Best pick i have used

                    I've used all sorts, cellulose, tortex, standard and jazz III's. These are like a mix of the best of all those. Tip like the jazz III, but actually enough to hold onto like a standard, with a jazz III i pretty much make a pinch harmonic with every note because its too small. The thickness will fool you though, if you like .88 get the .73, because .90's are a lot stiffer than tortex .88's. Bit expensive for a pick but worth it. Wears a lot slower than tortex too. Definitely my new favorite pick.

                    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 to say not once have i broken on of these ,they are amazingly durable. Its a good choice for metal, rock, jazz or any genre that needs that crunchy tone. But just a little warning, if you like a certain pick thickness, choose the step down in thickness for these picks.

                      I was doing a comparison of picks - been using Tortex .73mm for years - great picks. An extremely talented guitarist friend got me to try TUSQ picks from Graphtech - Great picks, maybe the best, but they wear out SO quickly - like every set, and are about a buck each. So, I also tried the Ultex - very good also, and now finally, I bought some Ultex Sharps to do a comparison. So, I guess if I didn't care about the wear, I would SLIGHTLY go for the TUSQ - maybe just a little easier to get pinch harmonics (Like ZZ Top's La Grange lead). All are good - I think I am going for the Ultex Sharps as my best overall "pick".

                          These picks are the best I've ever used. I got the 1.14mm and they really make my 70's Martin D35 sing. The highs on my acoustic are shimmery and clear, without sacrificing the low end. The volume on my acoustic has increased significantly, when using these picks. These picks have made my guitar a bango killer.

                              These have an amazing feel and are just thick enough to give me the tone I wanted. I've used other 2mm picks before but what makes this one special is that its sharp and it feels really nice. There's no dull point at the end like other picks Ive used, so when I want to play the smoothest I can use the edge or side and when I want some treble I can play near the bridge and whit the pointed side.

                                  It produces a fuller sound with a great attack and slides smoothly. With this, I find it easier to accurately pick the target string. I prefer thick picks and will try 2mm. Thoulgh it would handle it fine, this thickness is probably not the best for strumming; may be 1.14mm would do better for such use.

                                    This is a very firm pick that gives you the desired articulation based on your playing style, you pretty much
                                    get what you want and it last a long time with very little degeneration over long periods.
