    I use the Jim Dunlop XL Series Jazz III picks. They have a much smoother surface which don’t “grip” the strings quite as much.

    Amateur bass player, but if I am using a pick it is Purple Tortex.

    This. It used to say "0.10" before the ink wore off.

    thanks for sharing.

    My favorite acoustic pick is a Dunlop 0.73mm nylon, but I can use anything with similar weight and flex. I don't care for the loud 'click' I get from a heavier pick on acoustic.

    For bass I swear by yellow 0.73mm Ultex triangle picks. They have the punch and 'heaviness' of a thicker pick without the click/clank.

    but for guitars; I swear by rosewood/walnut wooden picks! Once I tried wood- I'm NEVER going back!! =)

    Timber Tones got some nices ones; (wanting to try their carbon fiber ones?!), ... but the ones on Wish, made out of (sorry, rain forest), is the very best.

    You got me thinking Erl, I think I want to try some shark tooth picks on guitar.

    Most of that is grown on plantations now, I considered growing Teak but I couldnt have handled the 6 years with no income and have still put out $$ for labor and fertilizer.

    I went with the eucalyptus instead, because it only had a 3-4 year turnaround time.

    Essentially this. My primary pick on electric is purple Tortex (1.14mm), but I"ll also use blue (1mm), green (0.88mm) or yellow (0.73mm) depending on what I'm playing through and the tone I'm after. I play a Fender Heavy if that's what's available, but I generally stick with those four because I've found what works for me. I played original Jazz IIIs for years but stopped because I didn't like how bright they were when recording.

    My favorite acoustic pick is a Dunlop 0.73mm nylon, but I can use anything with similar weight and flex. I don't care for the loud 'click' I get from a heavier pick on acoustic.

    I use a copper pick on my Tele, a Dunlap medium thumb pick on acoustic, and on the rare occasion I use a pick on bass; felt.

    I like a lot of really bright attack especially for my bass sound.
