Green Tortex has been my fav. for quite a long time. Just recently started using a newer green tortex called "The Wedge"

Strings: .010 - .046 (EXL 110)...usually tune to Eb.

for guitar I use Dunlop picks. any heavy thick pick with grooves
in it for pick control.

And for Bass I use a Zookies thumbpick. A M-10 grade. It work great
for basses.

I used to use the Dava control pick, which was stainless with plastic in the middle, so depending on how you hold it it was super stiff or flexible, with an unbending tip. Can't find them nowadays.


Those dava controls are the shit *banger* I only used the plain plastic ones but they were killer. I personally use the thinest possible with the style of music I have been playing is more of punk sounding stuff . I find it much easier with the thin picks

yeah, I'm not much into pick flex either, so I use the Jim Dunlop Stubbys 3.0mm, everything else feels weird to me now, the one on the right:

I like blue tortex or fender heavies and my strings are 10-52 but i substitute
a .012" for the high 'e' string

sucks at first but forces you to work harder!

my theory proved correct when i played a les paul through a kk marshall at a music store, the lighter strings obeyed my every desire :mrgreen:

I use the purple Dunlop sharp 1.14mm with DR tite fit strings (.010 - .052) In D tuning/Drop C
Gives a sharp metal sound :D

My tone must be awesome then, I use Dunlop Stubby III's, like a Jazz, but more rounded:

strings are now 11-48 on my strat and paul. the paul could go even heavier ( ie. 13s) with its shorter scale.

I have a beater strat that has 9-42s, and its tuned drop d, I don't play that too much though, maybe I can put the bigger strings on that with the same tuning when I get the cash :oops:

i'm trying to hit the strings near the bridge now for a more metal rhythm sound,
so the yellow and blue dunlops help me with that

off topic-I put 5 springs on my strat, so I don't know if that is discouraging me from using the trem bar,
but it feels good, kind of an overreaction to the wimpy 2 spring setup Fender gave it
