I play bass, but have always used picks a lot. My favorite picks are the Everly Star Picks. The purple 1.14mm tortex is my go to.





The blue pick from them is by go-to pick. I have about 10 of them - and the black text is completely worn off of all of them, so I have no idea what gauge it actually is.

Dunlops 1.5mm and got a set of 1.14mm but I still prefer the thicker pick for some reason.

Dunlop Ultex Jazz III 2.0. Best pick I ever used. I also have lots of Dunlop Max Grip Jazz III on stock, love those too. I HATE light picks, I find them extremely unresponsive, the delay from when I move my wrist to when the pick finally produces sound is insane.

I use yellow Dava sure grip nylon picks.   I've used all the other Dava picks lines including materials: delrin, metal, gel --->  used Dunlops nylons', classic and tortex. Planet waves picks, stone picksand even one of Rick Nielsen's picks from a concert waaaay back.


Nothing does it for me like a Dava. :-P That could be a good ad slogan.   copyright2014KasnitchInc.   :mrgreen:

Dunlop Gator Grips in .96, 1.14 and 1.5mm until I figure out my preference. Still newish to playing. They just stood out from the rest of the picks when I was trying different ones.
