      I've had my 2.00mm Big Stubby pics for over a year now based on some reviews at amazon and general advice on the internet. Some people waste this wonder material on frivolous things like bulletproof glass and aquariums, but Dunlop's using it as superhuman guitar pics which is its proper use.

      They are the best pics I've ever used. The thickness where thumb and finger meet is aided with finger-friendly divots to make it easy to hold these pics in a secure, yet light and relaxed manner. The edge that meets the strings is glass hard, so the only give is from your soft tissues. That combination of lightly holding the pic and delivering picking force to the strings with minimal energy bleed results in better control of the material played (including more speed when desired).

      Anything that can make it easier for me to do what I should've been doing years ago is a plus and these pics are a bag of plusses because of it. The 2.00mm ones have been so great that I want to try the ones and threes, too.

      With many gift-giving occasions coming up in the Winter, throw out obnoxious hints that you wouldn't claw your eyes out if a loved one or friend got you some of these demonically wonderful pics. And some for me, too. Tell 'em I want some more and mail one of yours to me if you're too shy. Mail two of yours to me if you need me to obnoxiously drop the hints for you.

      I've recently been using these with a guitar strung with Dunlop strings and the results have been very pleasing. Don't know if Dunlops other pics would work that way (and I don't want to go back to Tortex to find out), but it was like that time-travel effect when you put instant rice in a microwave. Only, with clean, ringing, crisp sounds and a lot less constipation.

      If you're an alternate-picking addict or string-skipping smarty, you owe it to yourself and to everyone who might ever hear you (especially future generations) to use Dunlop Big Stubby pics. Even if you hate yourself and feel you deserve to be bitten on the nose by an angry bull hippotamus more than you deserve to make beautiful, brutal music, your obligation to this universe is using these pics.

      I've been playing with these picks for a couple of months now, they were actually a reccomendation from my teacher, at first they were great but as I started playing faster.... and sweating more the pick slips VERY easily, another thing is ... the pick, as it it stubby (duh), it has somewhat of a curvature, this makes your tone warmer BUT doesn't allow you to play as fast and easy (specially on the lower E string)... if you don't mind these small details... amazing pick, as a matter of fact, my teacher has been playing regularly with a single one of these for over 2 years, I'm amazed he hasnt lost it yet...

        Comments about Dunlop 475 Big Stubby Guitar Picks:

        I use these for bass. I tried several different pick brands from the store and these win. I used to use a filed down National thumbpick to get this kind of attack on a string but don't use them anymore.

        They help my playing in that I always have a good secure grip on the pick, right where I want it as opposed to a lot of other picks seem to slip around in your finger grip from picking. The contour makes a big difference as opposed to a flat surface.

        Also their small size makes them easy to palm with one hand to go quickly to your fingers for songs or parts of songs that I use my fingers for picking.

          Well, picks are picks, but these let me play lead a lot better than the usual flat picks. The sharper edge and indentation make it easier to play and to hold on to. They are thick but don't take a lot of getting use to. In my opinion, they are well worth trying out. Enjoy.

            Very nice smooth, beveled "point" area for quick and easy contact with strings, no extra "pick noise", and the indendtation on both sides of the gripping area help the picking hand stay relaxed while still providing good pick control. Not only provides consistant picking action due to the stiffness, but the thickness and shape provide a feel and function not found in other pick styles. LOVE these picks! :D

              Comments about Dunlop 475 Big Stubby Guitar Picks:

              If you buy the 24-pack of these picks they will last the rest of your life, unless you lose them or toss them out at gigs. These are the most durable picks ever made (not counting those made out of adamantium or unobtanium). The pick material is Lexan, I believe. Which is some sort of super polymer used in bulletproof windows.

              I have all three sizes. The thin one is red and more flexible than the 2mm and 3mm, which are purple. The 1mm pick might wear down at a rate that wouldn't be measured in geologic time. I use the thin one with my acoustic for a slightly brighter attack. It's also good for sweep picking, though if you're an expert at sweep picking I suppose any pick will do. However, I need all the help I can get in that regard.

              I prefer the 3mm over the 2mm pick, maybe that's just because I bought 3mm first and got used to it. Regardless, I've used both a lot now and they have basically the same sound and feel. The only noticeable difference being the thickness, obviously. The 3mm thickness will take a little while to get used to if you don't already use very thick picks. All of these picks have round indentations in the center containing an embossed logo. The indentation and gritty feel of the logo provides for an excellent grip. The size and shape is pretty much the same as any standard Dunlop pick.

              Finally I just want to say that I would not write this much about nearly any product if I didn't completely love it. The fact that these are just guitar picks says volumes about how completely I endorse them. They are phenomenal and I would be devastated if they were ever discontinued.

                        I really like these picks (the 2.0mm ones) and they do improve my solos and such, my only problem with them is that they're really smooth on the indent grip thing, but they tend to slip every now and then. I can always fix that, it just bothers me a little.

                          I just wanted to try something different. Normally I use Dunlop Max Grips, and Dunlop Ultex Sharps. These Big Stubby picks are uncomfortable to hold, and I was dropping them all the time. Not what I was looking for.

                            Good quality and hold up well. Other picks I've tried wear down the tips quickly and pick up dirt off the strings fast. After two weeks the pick still looks new - no noticeable wear or dirt. The textured finger grip works okay but it isn't perfectly positioned for my grip. The polished gloss surface probably helps keep the dirt off but gets slippery after playing a while.
