I ordered these because I was looking for a thicker pick, but they are too thick for me. That's not a problem, it's that they're too slick and keep slipping out of my fingers. I took them to my guitar teacher and had him try them, and he agrees that they're too slippery. I'm going to get a thinner pick between the 0.5mm and the 1.0mm thickness.

Unexpectedly great

By capn_buzzcut

from NC

Comments about Dunlop Tortex Sharp Guitar Picks 1 Dozen:

I actually picked these up by mistake, I didn't realize they were "sharp" (I prefer green ones). They work better for me than a standard Tortex though, because for whatever reason, I tend to hold the pick at an angle to the strings. With the sharper end, my sloppy picking sounds and feels a lot more precise.

Great pick for fast pickers

By WillHammerhead

from collierville tennessee

Comments about Dunlop Tortex Sharp Guitar Picks 1 Dozen:

I find this pick to be a very nice pick. It increases action dramatically and you will feel from the first time you use it. when i switch back to regular picks I can't play like I ussualy can. These are the only picks I play with.

Clear sound

By Steve

from Philadelphia

Comments about Dunlop Tortex Sharp Guitar Picks 1 Dozen:

These are pretty awesome. I use the 1.14 mm (purple) picks with regular .10 gauge strings, and they feel great. They don't wear down as fast as other picks I've used, and you can pick very fast and clean. The only problem I have with them is playing fast palm-muted chords, which keeps them at 4 stars.

Tried them on a whim

By Rockr

from oklahoma

Comments about Dunlop Tortex Sharp Guitar Picks 1 Dozen:

By far my favorite picks! I bought the blue standard tortex picks and a pack of the yellow sharps expecting to favor the standards. The first time I palyed with a standard it almost slipped out of my hand, so I tried the sharp out and loved it! I strongly suggest these picks to a player of any skill level.

Great Pick!!

By Dave

from Medford, MA

Comments about Dunlop Tortex Sharp Guitar Picks 1 Dozen:

I was used to playing with much lighter picks but I read that James Hetfield uses these picks and all I play is pretty much Metallica. So i decided to pick these up and give them a try. They are great! the point is ridiculously fine and doesnt wear down. Its very durable and an overall great pick. I recommend this to play speed songs or songs with quick alternate picking. It just takes some time to get used to if you normally use thinner picks. But its great!!

My Favorite Picks

By Jerry Blessing

from Fresno, CA

Comments about Dunlop Tortex Sharp Guitar Picks 1 Dozen:

I've tried out various picks and I find these to be the best ones. I use the .73mm (Yellow), they're equivilent to medium sized picks, which are great. The sharp edge makes it easier to pluck each string and its also easier to pick faster. I suggest this pick for anyone having trouble choosing a pick.

These picks helped me get it back

By Brad

from Boston, Massachusetts

Comments about Dunlop Tortex Sharp Guitar Picks 1 Dozen:

I got these picks because I wanted the sharpness, attack, and control of Jazz III's while still maintaining the size and availability of regular picks. What I got with these (I used the Green ones, which I loved the regular green tortex too) was better control and a sharper attack that even improves my tone. I've been away from guitar for awhile and picked it back up and had to improve my picking, but jazz III's weren't working for me. If you want the precision of jazz picks with the qualities and size of a regular pick, definitely give these a shot. I'm never going back.

Great Picks

By Ethan

from San Diego, CA

Comments about Dunlop Tortex Sharp Guitar Picks 1 Dozen:

I used to use just the regular Tortex picks. I bought these (The Purple 1.14mm) hoping that the would improve my speed at fast alternate picking on a single string. Not only did they do that, but they were also much better for sweep picking, riffs, and even acoustic-type 5-and-6-string chord strumming. Otherwise they're just like other Tortex - they never slip out of your hand, are super comfortable and last for a VERY long time.

Almost Perfect

By Ben

from Elk Grove Village, Illinois

Comments about Dunlop Tortex Sharp Guitar Picks 1 Dozen:

I picked these up the other day, thinking they would address my need for a sharp pick with a standard size. It did just that. I got these home, tore open the package, and just started shredding. These were exactly what I was looking for. They have the sharp tip I wanted, sharper than a Jazz III (which I have been using for quite some time), and they have the standard pick size, so I can vary my grip, something I couldn't really do on a Jazz III. Jazz III picks always felt like they about to fall out my hand, but these feel solid. There is one thing I don't like, however, and that's what keeps this at 4 stars. Dunlop achieved the sharper tip by instead elongating the picking surface, as opposed to just tapering the tip. While it is a mostly negligible size difference, it does dig into my finger when I choke up high on the pick, making it somewhat difficult to keep it that way. However, it is a small price to pay for a darn good pick.

Great picks

By Nancy Smith

from Brazil, IN

Comments about Dunlop Tortex Sharp Guitar Picks 1 Dozen:

Every year, strings and picks are on my son's Christmas list. This past Christmas, these particular picks were new to the list. So I bought him 5 packages and put them in his stocking. Christmas Day, he was ecstatic! He practices every day and plays in a metal band, so he goes through picks pretty quick. I asked about how long he thought this new supply of picks would last. He told me "all year", and continued on to tell me how durable they are. My son is very picky about the strings he uses and the picks he uses. Great picks, great price, son's happy..all is right w/ the world...the jeans he got for Christmas? Well, that's another story!

Great picks

By Troy

from Columbus, OH

Comments about Dunlop Tortex Sharp Guitar Picks 1 Dozen:

These are great picks. Everything that one likes about the Dunlop Tortex picks with a perfect point for greater articulation. And the price is right. I love the Ultex Sharp picks, but these Tortex Sharps are a much better value for the $.

Holy Grail

By Jeff

from Boise, Idaho

Comments about Dunlop Tortex Sharp Guitar Picks 1 Dozen:

These picks are essentially the Holy Grail of Dunlop's creations, in terms of picks of course. If you are interested in faster picking, I would grab a set of these and knock yourself out. I use them for almost all of my playing, and they are just perfect for those pinched harmonics. The downside is that they create a really irritating sound on acoustic guitars, specifically the steel-stringed ones. That being said, you hear virtually nothing on electrics. Give them a shot, they're more than worth it.

Great picks

By Pete

from Washington

Comments about Dunlop Tortex Sharp Guitar Picks 1 Dozen:

i would suggest the .73 mm's, i have a pack of the original tortex picks in 1mm size and they feel a tad bit to thick, these picks are superb because of their tip, you can get alot of bite and attack into your picking, and its also a dream to play arppegiated(sp?) chords. I've also been playing alot of dropped tuning chugga riffs with these, they work great for everything.

Sharper is Better

By carlos

from mountlake terrace

Comments about Dunlop Tortex Sharp Guitar Picks 1 Dozen:

I used the normal Tortex picks in both .88(green) and .50 (red). both were good but i needed to find a pick that was good for picking and struming. Enter the Sharps .73(yellow) i was amazed at how beefy and clear each note was not only at picking but struming. The one thing is if you play the way i do get two packs because you wont want stop playing.
