      Balanced tone with a bright attack.

      Black Ice guitar picks feature a custom oversized "jazz" shape that is designed for speed picking and where precise articulation is required. Perfect for both rhythm and single note lead work, these Plaent Waves picks are triple "tumbled," creating a soft-touch texture that provides an incredibly smooth surface and a superb grip in any playing conditions. Made from Planet Waves Duralin, this ultra-durable material delivers strength, resilience, and resists abrasion while providing balanced tone with a bright attack.

        I have been a Tortex user for eons and still am. Always loved Tortex Yellows. I tried a Black Ice medium a couple years ago or so and really loved the way they feel and the smaller size and continue to use them regularly. I bought the heavys this time and really love the attack and tone from them as well as the velvety feel. I will continue to use these pics, great stuff and I like the jazz shape. Thanks again MF!

        These picks are top quality picks made by Planet Waves. The material seems to be the same as Dunlop's Tortex and similar in shape and size as the Dunlop Jazz III nylon but a bit bigger than the Jazz III. It's inbetween the Jazz III and the Jazz III XL Series. However, the similarity ends there. This pick sounds way too dark for my tone preference. That's not a bad thing at all, Jazz players will love the tone of these picks as it produces the warm, dark tones of Jazz guitar music. In my experience, it is even darker sounding than the Dunlop Tortex. The thickness I chose might've had a bit of contributing factor in the dark tone but when I compared it to an even thicker pick such as the Dunlop Ultex 2.0 mm, the Dunlop still sounded way brighter than the Black Ice pick. Jazz players take note, this is your pick! Try some and you'll love it!

              Picks should be .05mm thicker, and they would be perfect. Good size, non-slip material absorbs some moisture. Picks have a tendancy to warp due to how thin they are. I buy them at 30-50 at a time. They will last about 6 months.

                  I've been using Jazz 3 picks for 20 + years and my bass player gave me one of these Black Ice picks to try, I loved it from the 1st time it hit the strings. It gave me a very warm smooth sound and felt every bit as good as my jazz 3 picks.

                      Just got 'em and still getting used to smaller size than i've always used. I'm a bluegrass picker and can say they get off the strings a lot faster than i've been used to. So far so good.

                      Comments about Planet Waves 10 Small Guitar Picks:

                      These picks are the best I have ever used. Their smaller size is great for accurate playing so you won't mess up on those fast solos or riffs. The tip is amazing in that you can use it in virtually any angle you choose and it won't be a problem. These picks last a really long time. The last pack of these I have gotten was about 5 months ago and I still haven't used the whole pack even with constant use. Lastly, I've used many gauges and brands of picks and these are, by far, the best. You simply cannot go wrong with these.

                      I'm 50 yrs old, been playing since I was 8. Used all the best picks out there. These picks are the only ones that don't grab the strings which I like. It feels like I'm playing 5x faster, just makes you shred all over and where ever you want. And the tip makes you hit those pintch harmonics ever so easily. These picks can make you a speed demon.

                      These picks are extremely fast and easier to hang onto compared to most other picks out there. The pointed end makes pinch harmonics so easy to do!I've got the heavy gauge picks... you'll love them.
