      I have been searching for a pick I could use for both picking and strumming and finally found it! For strumming my favorite pick was the original size Tortex .50 in pitch black but I found this pick slow for alternate picking so I went on a quest to find a faster pick. I purchased so many picks including the red jazz III and different sizes of V-Picks. Both the original jazz III and V-Picks were awesome for picking and played super fast but when it came to strumming and rhythm they weren't playing nice so I found myself going back to the original Tortex picks. While searching for different types of jazz III picks I stumbled upon this product by chance and it was a blessing. Since I loved the attack, sound, and flexibility for strumming of the original thin Tortex and the sharp tip of the original red jazz III for picking I figured this pick was worth a shot and boy am I glad I tried it out! I purchased this pick in the .50 size and it allows me to both strum and pick fast while giving me the best of both worlds. If all you do is strum and play rhythm then I recommend a thinner larger pick and if you simply shred then I recommend the original red jazz III or the V-Picks small pointed which glided over the strings but if you want a pick with attack which can do it all then the jazz III Tortex is my recommendation. Good luck in your search but my search has ended...

      Guitar picks are unique in that you can regularly experiment with different types and styles to determine what works best for you without spending too much money. You might be looking for a certain sound, a particular feel or, in some cases I suppose, a particular look. In the end, we all end up finding something that works for us, and in my case I've settled on the Tortex Pitch Black jazz picks. I've tried nearly every jazz pick on the market," and I keep coming back to the Pitch Black in 1.14 mm. ""Feel"" is difficult to describe"," but these little dynamos are extremely comfortable to play; they almost feel ""warm"" in your fingers", and maintaining a proper grip isn't an issue - even under the most trying of circumstances. Best of all, they provide a smooth and even string release without that annoying click that you get with some of the hard plastic jazz picks. Try some for yourself and see what you think!

              Comments about Dunlop Tortex Pitch Black Jazz Guitar Picks 1 Dozen:

              I've tried several picks over the years in an attempt to find one that's best suited to my playing style. The Tortex Pitch Black Jazz has now become my favorite. I like to play everything from jazz, to Santana lead, to funk.

              I was always told to use a thicker pick to improve my soloing speed and accuracy, etc. Several of the V-Picks (medium pointed, etc.) worked great for that purpose. However, when switching to play rhythm, etc., those picks seemed a bit ungainly and stiff.

              I then experimented with several of the Jazz III type picks, ultimately settling on the Eric Johnson signature pick. I liked the embossed lettering which allowed me to hold it with more confidence, and also liked the control it gave me. Still I wanted a pick that was a bit more versatile.

              I finally began to experiment with the Tortex Pitch Black series. Ironically, I found the thinnest of these (.50 mm) gave me the best results. Its perfect for quick strums (funk, etc.), but also allows me to accurately pick fast licks -as I have a natural tendency to angle this pick somewhat (i.e., not quite parallel to the strings). This technique essentially mimics the attributes of a thicker pick.

              Also, most other thin picks tend to develop a permanent bend or curve. The thin Pitch Black picks, although very elastic, have a great material-memory. I believe this memory is the pick's best attribute.

              I bought these just to try a different pick, as I've been using the same style of pick forever (the regular Tortex Fender style). I really like them for playing fast licks. They are not for strumming!

                          I got these picks because I love the Jazz III size and the feel of tortex. In my mind, the .73 mm size is perfect for just about anything. It is thick enough to handle alternate picking very well, but is also thin enough to have some flexibility for strumming. These picks last quite a while and the package of 12 will last you quite a long time. These and the Ultex Jazz III's are all I use.

                              These picks were introduced to me several years ago. You gain better control with this design. Also, for normal play I use the 1.14 gauge, if I play double picking stuff I use the .80 and for fast strumming and funk, I use the .60 gauge. These picks are outstanding and they last longer as well. After playing these now for about 4 years, I could never go back to a standard pick. I have tried but am hooked on these.

                                I like the size and hardness of these - great for small fingered fella's - easier to navigate and they push the strings pretty well too strumming and flatpicking.

                                these picks are awsome the only downside is because of their color they can be hard to fin when dropped which isnt a big deal because they are very inexpensive. Overall they have a great feel and dont slip out of your fingers.
