When you typically enter a recording, practice, jam session, simply pull your “Emergency Pick” from your pocket or wallet to try out an instrument at Guitar Center or just ask any employee if they have one you can use, 9 times out of 10 I notice it’s usually a Dunlop Tortex guitar pick. That’s because they have everything you need in a pick. Tortex picks come in a wide range of widths – between super-flexible .50mm reds for strumming 12-string chords to ultra-thick 1.14 purples that as a bassist I’ve been using when I’ve needed a pick my entire career, Dunlop has had you covered. I’m sure neither Store Employees or purchasers ever know their widths – Dunlop has them perfectly arraigned by color so that all you have to ask for is “A pack of blues”. Add to that the Tortex material which increases its grip as you sweat onstage as well as accommodates your muscle memory and molds to the position you play in, There’s simply no other flatpick to choose.
