Dunlop Picks are by far the best picks out on the market. They're durable and comfortable and easy to hang on to. Chances are, you'll misplace one of these picks long before it has a chance to wear out. Nothing against other brands, but a lot of them like to fly out of your hand or wear out quickly. Some picks have a shiny or "polished" plastic, these are usually the ones that fly out of your hand if your hand starts to sweat. These aren't polished so it's really easy to maintain a good grip on them. If you do any intense strumming, these are your picks. For those of you just starting out and looking for picks I highly recommend these. Biggest question most new people have is about the thickness. Thickness is really personal preference. To be honest, you're not going to notice much difference between the close thicknesses(for example 1mm and .88mm). Fact: Thinner picks bend easier and tend to "spring" out of your hand. So unless you have pretty good pick control, I'd stay away from the thinner picks. Most popular thicknesses for newbies range between .73mm and 1mm.

I figured I'd try these. I always use the 73mm tortex yellow ones. The black are definitely thinner and flex more or click more. They just don't feel the same. I don't dig 'em. I didn't expect any difference, but they're definitely different. I don't know if I got a weird batch. If you like the yellow ones, stick with 'em.

Finally, All In Black

By T-Bone

from Austin, TX

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

I have been playing guitar for over 30 years and have tried every pick in the book. I always come back to Dunlop. They are simply the best picks you can buy. I still have the first .73 I ever bought and it still plays great. It's even bent to the shape of my thumb. My one and only issue with these great picks has always been the colors. I'm not a big fan of colored picks so to have all the thicknesses I play, currently 4, in black is huge for me. It may sound trivial but playing is all about confidence, even in the picks you use, and I'll be using Dunlop as long as I can sling a guitar around my neck!

Great Tone AND Durability

By Brucey

from Bay City MI

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

My friend ordered a pack of these about 3 months ago andf let me use one. He saud they were the best picks hes ever used. Id have to say the same because I still have the one he gave me and the only thing thats wore out on it is the ink. The pick is still smooth and gives me a gret thick tone on guitar and bass and I play OFTEN. A dozen will probably last you a life time.

Best Picks Ever

By Benjamin

from WA

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

I have been playing guitar for awhile so I know what picks I want. Jim Dunlop picks are the picks I can never put down. I have played through my years of guitar with many different pick companies. Jim Dunlop has them all beat. The playability and the wear and tear on all these picks is awesome. I have never used another pick since I picked up Jim Dunlop.

The Consensus is right on target!!

By Jason

from Voorheesville, NY

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

I finally used up the 100 or so Fender Premium Celluloids that i got last year for my birthday ( i can't say much about them except that i couldn't wait to use them up). After reading that just about everyone of my favorite guitarists used Dunlop Tortex, i made up my mind to try them out and ordered a dozen. All i have to say is these are what all picks should be like. I will definitely be throwing a few more packs in with my next purchase ( even though i think these may last a while. additional info: i purchased the 1.14 mm

They work

By Ernest

from Edwardsville, IL

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

They're guitar picks. There isn't much to say about them in my opinion; I'm no expert, for sure. They perform exactly as I want them to. The reason I bought them was Buckethead uses .73mm Dunlops. I play pretty hard and haven't broken one yet. I'll be buying these again if I ever run out.

Nice Grip Texture

By Gary Tompkins

from Maryland

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

These pick have a slightly rough texture that keeps them in place even in sweaty hands. I normally use .50mm celluloid picks, they are stiff yet flexible enough for my playing style. The tortex .50mm are a little stiffer but still very playable, they flex when you want them to yet rock every string with a power strum.

They work just fine!

By TwistedMe

from Winston-Salem, NC

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

Being new to playing hardly justifies me to review these picks, but, I can say they work! I did a little research and found that this should be a good thiskness for a beginner, and it is. They don't "jump" out of my habd like I've read some do. They arn't too rigid or too flimsy.

Chuggin along or soloing

By MikeSeaCaptain

from New Jersey

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

whether your a rythem guitarist chuggin and strumming along or a bassist or if your sweeping and soloing these picks are amazing. and i am extremely picky when it comes to picks (no pun intended). i have tried most jazz picks out there and have never been as satisfied with these. im using the 1.14 mm ones and i have never been happier.

well done

By robert

from houston tx

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

ive geen playing off only one of the .73 picks for mabey 2 weeks now...2 to 8 hr a day and there are NO sins of wear or tear on the pick. Even the logo hasnt faded in the slightest...ive given the to some of my friends and they all love them....as for thickness...these are perfect. Theyre thin enough to where i can pick at a steady fast pace but thick enought to where i can pick very hard and they wont flex much. I use to play with .1s...now im on .73s and im never goin back

Not Bad

By Schilling

from San Antonio

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

I have pretty sweaty hands and these tend to slip around a bit. Overall, it's a nice looking pick and has a bit of grip to it... just not enough for me.

Good but not Great

By Ben

from Saranac, MI

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

I love the feel and grip these picks provide! but the only problem is the pick scraping noise i get when i play speed riffs. I use the .88 meds, and It makes a mini pick slide noise every time i alternate pick the lower strings and ruins the sound. otherwise good tone and great feel but im goin back to the Jazz III's, much cleaner sound.

Best picks I have ever used or owned!

By Aleks Garlie

from New York

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

I have had these picks for quite some time now, and all I can say is that they are absolutely terrific! I love the way they feel and sound. Besides, they come in black, which looks awesome. I use the 1.0mm ones for the electric guitar and the .73mm ones for the acoustic.

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

        I'm fairly new to the guitar. I've been using .73mm picks. The ones I chose are .88mm. I did not realize what a difference .15mm would make. They work great with my bass, but are too stiff for my guitar. If you like a stiff pick, these are for you.

            Havent used a lot of picks, but these are great. They have a powdery feel that doesn't wear off or go away, feels like matte plastic. The logo and writing mostly came off after about a week of hard practice.The picks are scratch magnets, but they do not deteriorate or wear much at all, very durable. I purchased the .88mm thickness.
