as a looong time Jazz III (carbon) user and preacher, I never thought this would happen. But I need another (larger) pick!
Over time I have become accustomed to use my fingers more and more, hiding/holding the pick between my index and middle finger, then bringing the pick back into normal position quickly. Because the size of the Jazz III is not ideal for this, lately my hand starts to cramp and I feel not comfortable anymore with this small pick.
So I tried some "standard" size Tortex and nylon picks laying around in different sizes and I hated the feel and sound. Then I found an old Gravity standard 2.0 mm acryl pick - and surprisingly liked it much more than I rememberd it!
So maybe I am ready and it's time trying (again) bigger and thicker picks?
I will order a selection of "obvious" choices like Jazz III XL. But also want to give some reasonable prized alternatives a change again.
It seems V-Picks are not (easy) available in Germany anymore?! What else is recommended? Are there any new or unknown companies out there in 2020?
I am also very interested, what picks breu is using today. Still V-Picks?
Has anyone tried the Ibanez JTC Picks?
How are the thicker Dunlop Flow picks?
Ideally the picks should be pretty durable too
yes, I’m still using V-picks but only for acoustic guitars. For acoustic I also use very thin John Pearce pick (red). It gives you a very nice thin sparkly strum.
For electric guitar I’m using a custom made Daw man pick. It’s 3 mm and just a bit larger than jazz III. Very good!!! Good grip and a tremendous sound!!
