        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.

          Comments about Dunlop Ultex Sharp Picks - 6 Pack:

          This is the last of my 3 pick experiment. I bought these as an experiment not really caring if it was wasted money. I normally use Dunlop 1.14 Tortex which are pretty heavy but still feeling I can dig in with them as they sound really soft.
          These 1.14 thick picks felt a little stiffer than my normal Tortex 1.14 that I use. Once I got used them and there sharper point, I really liked them and will probably switch. The dynamics are alot crisper without giving up too much of the softness of the Tortex. I haven't tried them on electric yet but I think my review would be the same as I usually use the same pick for everything.

              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!

                    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!

                            This is a new product that I really love. I have tried many picks, this one really works for me. I play mostly progressive rock electric guitar with these picks in the 1.4 mm size.
