I've been using Clayton Black Jazz Small Teardrop Picks for about 5 years. I used to use the White Small Teardrop picks also made by Clayton, but decided to try the black ones out of curiosity. No stores in NY carried them, so I ordered about 40 black ones and 40 white ones through a local music store, in case the black ones didn't work out. As it turned out, I preferred the black ones to the white ones because of the mellow quality of their attack. I play only jazz on a Borys B120 electric archtop guitar through an old, orange Roland Cube-60 with no effects, so I always use a clean sound. Regular plastic picks sound too weak and thin to me, so I started using the white Claytons because they had a softer attack but still had a strong full sound. The black ones are the same, but have an even less pronounced attack. One thing to consider though is the fact that the sound you get out of these picks is unlike the sound of any other pick. I made a CD with only upright bass and drums, with the guitar plugged straight into the board, using only Clayton Black and White picks, and their sound is unmistakeable throughout, so you better like that type of sound, cause that's all you're going to get.

I've been using these for years. The imprinted logo effects the tonal aspect of that side of the pick. It's rough vs smooth. Quality is down. Clayton used to offer 1.52mm and 1.90mm. No longer. I'm looking for a new brand.

      Comments about Clayton Black Raven Small Teardrop Guitar Picks:

      Back when I was playing drums with Telecaster master Danny Gatton, and fascinated with guitar, he gave me three tips...(1) use these little (Fender) teardrop picks and (2) hold 'em close to the tip, for maximum control. (3) Rough them up on your volume knob so they don't slip.

      A Danny Gatton disciple later told me later, with Claytons you don't need to scuff them, they already have a sandy non-slip surface and last way longer than the extremely limited variety of Fender teardrops. The Ravens come in lots of gauges and are so perfect I order them seven dozen at a time so I never got caught short.

      BTW - where did Danny get this idea? From Roy Buchanan!

      Better than Jazz IIIs

      Comments about Clayton Black Raven Small Teardrop Guitar Picks:

      I got the picks wanting to try something new. I wasn't expecting much but these things have cntinually impressed me. These things wear much better than Jazz IIIs, are better for going from string to string and are pretty nice for rythm playing too. This pick finalized my love for Clayton picks, this and their ultem standards are all I use now.

      Comments about Clayton Black Raven Small Teardrop Guitar Picks:

      I switched to these after using some Fender jazz picks for my bass. After using these for a while, I can't switch back. Maybe because my Fender picks were too thin, but I'm going to continue to use these Claytons.Strangely, I don't feel comfortable using jazz picks when playing a 6-string guitar. For that, I use Fender 351's, but I love these Clayton jazz picks for my bass.

      Great pick

      Comments about Clayton Black Raven Small Teardrop Guitar Picks:

      I like the Black Jazz better than the white acetal. The Black Jazz are a BIT brighter (despite the name). I tried a whole bunch of thicknesses and the the 1.52's are the ones that get the most play. Perfect combination of stiffness, power and tone. I love them.

      These babies are awesome! Better than that cheap brand I was using. Great tone, withstand heavy abuse. Good for jazz, boogy, blues, and some types of rock.

      I got these picks the other day in the thickest size, 1.9mm. They are by far the best picks ive used for guitar. They make regular fender clears seem like a joke.
