it's a good pick but i don't use it for playing hard because it isn't honky enough. too dark, especially when i play with the neck pickup and distortion with jazz chords. I need a more intelligible sound, so i've been using the nylon 0.6 mm picks.
I have the blue ones, which are just over 1 mm. Compared to 0.6 mm nylon dunlop picks, they have a wider range of possible tones. They are more difficult to get a quiet sound out of. When you play with a bit of force, they give a warm sound with soft attack. Played very gently, they have a clucky attack and the very interesting capability to "pick out" harmonics, creating a glassy, verge-of-feedback sound even at low volumes. I'd imagine they're great for jazz. I'm going to buy the 0.71 mm ones to see if they have more attack and honkiness when played loud but still retain the glassiness at low volumes.
the edges are slightly tapered, which helps it leave the string more effortlessly.
Ease of Use
very comfortable to play. the rounded edges make them easier to control.
seems very durable and stronger than ordinary nylon picks. very cleanly-made edges. looks good.
72 picks for 15 bucks seems like a good deal.
never needed to contact them, but dunlop can print logos on these if you want.
The Wow Factor
tasty blue color. if it were candy i'd try to eat it.
