I have used Dunlop Tortex .73 exclusively for over 20 years until recently when a guitarist friend let me try out an orange Snarling Dogs BRAIN pick. I liked it so much I ordered tins of the red and black ones to try, along with three other brands of picks I thought looked interesting. After doing some thorough comparison testing of all five picks, I couldn't deny how much more clean and accurate my picking was when using the black BRAIN picks. I am now totally sold on them!

Some people don't like the bumpy grip on these picks, but I do. The raised part is far enough away from the edge of the pick that it doesn't interfere with playing or catch the strings in the way some gripped picks do. The bumps are also not as "sharp" feeling as other gripped picks. The BRAIN picks are comfortable, have good attack, just the right amount of flex and strength, and seem to last well. They are made from Nylon, so they should hold up for quite some time.

My style of playing is typically 90% metal, lots of string skipping, shreddy leads, driving rhythms, sweeps, and squeals (these picks are friggin' awesome for pinch harmonics!). They are also great for acoustic playing.

I have a lot of Dunlops in my gig bag, but I'll be using them as backups from now on. Definitely switching to BRAINs. More brains!!!

I have never come on here and actually trashed something BUT! I bought these picks to try along with some more Dunlop's which I normally use. I have to say most of these picks had an extra 1/32 of an inch or more of unformed plastic all the way around them. I'm not going to sit here and do the finishing trim for Snarling Dogs or I'll become one. They charge a lot of money for unformed picks. Bad form Snarling Dogs. These are useless and the worst excuse for a finished product I have seen in a long time.!

          Comments about Snarling Dogs Brain Guitar Picks and Tin Box:

          I wanted to like these picks, I really did. The grip is excellent and feels more like a gritty material than simple raised bumps. This is the reason why I bought them and it is there where they delivered. But that's it. The actual pick itself is quite floppy, a standard tortex feels rigid compared to these. The big problem is that my dozen picks all have extra plastic material around the sides. I have to trim off around the edges if I want to actually used these. Every pick has a sharp nub on the top while the actual point has material hanging off that catches on the string. I feel like I'm cleaning up poorly cut out Gundam model parts. The tin is the nice though.

            Comments about Snarling Dogs Brain Guitar Picks and Tin Box:

            As one reviewer stated, these are not the same picks as previously manufactured. I still have several 1.14mm/orange picks from a few dozen that I purchased a couple years ago and compared those to the 1.14mm picks I recently purchased in November 2015. The difference is quite noticeable...the new picks are more pliable and you can feel them 'give' while you're picking strings. They still don't move around in between your fingers while you're playing, which I like and is why I tried them in the first place, they just aren't as rigid. Consequently, as least for me, it makes playing with them a little sloppy. Well, I still have a few of the old formula picks...after they're done I'll be in search for a new non-slip pick. Too bad...I really liked them.

                Well, it's a pick so it's used for strumming and playing, duh. I bought these to try out for their "grip". They definitely have a lot of grip. The sound I get is about the same as with the Dunlop nylons, so I'm good with them. Don't know how they'll last since I haven't used them that much yet. But they really do have grip (texture) if that's what you're looking for. They're definitely worth a try if you're already using nylon.

                Comments about Snarling Dogs Brain Guitar Picks and Tin Box:

                After playing my favorite Dunlop Tortex for over 10 years, I realized my grip is getting less secure and I kept dropping my picks. Since then, I've tried Star Picks, which are similar in feel to the Tortex but didn't really help, Herdin Blue, which gave me the great "Edge" chime, but were just ok on grip, and Dunlop Jazz Max Grip, which were great, but too small for my fingers. It might take a while to adjust to playing a nylon pick, but I have not dropped one of these things yet. They are very comfortable and the size is standard so I can move them around in my finger if I want. The grip is not just bumps. The markings are angled like barbs on fish hooks. One try and you'll get what I mean. And for those of you who keep a pick for a while, I haven't worn one down and it's been over a month. I got the organge 1.14mm and they're pretty heavy. My only suggestion to the manufacturer is to get the grip a little closer to the tip of the pick because if I'm really pinching it close to the string, I come off the texture, and smooth nylon does not help grip.

                Comments about Snarling Dogs Brain Guitar Picks and Tin Box:

                What's not to like? If you're dropping picks like crazy (I've got a loose picking style and the plectrums can fly) these are better than most textured picks.
                I've got the purple 60s. Nice feel to the picks: nice flex; just right abrasive grit to both sides of pick keep me holding on w/o discomfort. Sharp edges. Handy little sliding tin.
                Well made. Sharp edges like Dunlops. I'd equate the 60s to a m-l Dunlop gel with a better tactile feel than a Jim Dunlop Nylon. Flexes like a Fender thin celluloid, but the Fenders have smoother edges, which I like f/certain styles, even if they're slippery buggers.
                Very Good value f/nice picks w/a neat tin.
