Aligator dunlop USA

I play bass with it occasionally so it's gotta be good. I always break picks...
I never knew it was possible

Those blue 1mm Dunlop Tortex picks. Though recently I have been using ESP picks that I took from a guitar shop.

This is going to sound weird, but the only picks I buy are Fender Premium Celluloids, heavy, red. I don't know why. It's just kind of a compulsion or something, but they have to be these red celluloid Fenders.

I got some free from musicians friend when I bought my 6 string that are medium. I use them on my Mom's 12 string too. I don't care much for a really thick pick and the thin ones break to easy on an acoustic.

I use medium thickness but to me it doesn't matter who makes them just how they feel in my hand and the sound of my Special Edition Gibson SG

Any decently thick ones, can't stand any of that flimsy bullshit, I also broke a few picks lately, I never really thought it was possible.

Goddamn, how do you play with that? Those must have absolutely no flex.

They feel amazing. And usually somewhere in 1-1.4 mm because I play bass.

Mediums thinkness, a lil bit of flex for a balanced play field.
