Placed the first order of picks today - Seeing as its a new month, but I made the thread last month, I'm making a 10 order just this once!

Heres what I ordered -

1 each of the African Mahogany, Lignum vitae, and Curly Maple timbertones. (the softest, hardest, and middlemost hardnesses, respectively. I went for curly maple since its a known tonewood.)
1 each of .50, .73, .88, and 1.14 Tortex.

personally, i prefer to play with the dunlop gel picks. I usually rock a medium or meduim-light pick (.73 and .60 respectively). The only thing that sucks is when I pickslide, it cuts grooves right into them really fast. Do you know of any other picks that play, feel, and sound like this but are more durable when picksliding?

When I first started playing guitar I used Fender mediums but found them to be too slippery especially because my fingers are kinda sweaty. I bought some .73 brain picks with grip on them but they were suuuper flimsy, they sounded like **** especially when you try to play fast licks with them. The pick I've liked the most is the yellow Dunlop Tortex .73mm, the material they're made of makes it so they don't slip. They're a little bit tougher than the fender mediums which makes them perfect for playing fast. The only downside to them is that they start getting dull in about 3 weeks of playing. Still they're the only picks I use now and they're about 6 bucks for a pack of 12, not bad. They're the ideal pick for gigging too.

That sounds interesting Bizarre, I would like to have some of those maple picks. I cant remember the last time I was worried about what kind of pick I used. Since Im between bass guitar & rythm guitar most of the time, any pick that is medium to heavy will do.
