Guitar Pick

A guitar pick is a type of plectrum designed for use on a guitar. Over time people have made picks of various materials, including plastic, rubber, felt, tortoiseshell, wood, metal, and stone. They most often take the shape of an acute isosceles triangle with the two equal corners very rounded and the third corner rounded to a lesser extent. This shape is, however, merely one of many used by manufacturers.

These durable picks will stand up to heavy play. Easy-to-grip shape and good looks. You can never have too many of these fantastic picks, so stock up today. Your guitar will love you for it and so will your fans.

I bought these picks shortly after buying my grandson Johnny his very first beginners guitar. I read about them on the guitar page; the price was right and they seemed durable, so I got them for him.

Of course, he used them to pick his guitar, but he also found another use for them. I couldn’t suppress a grin when I saw a half-dozen of them on a necklace his girl-friend was wearing. It seems she collects guitar picks, so Johnny went to the music store and purchased some picks in various colors. Then using these black ones as the base color he designed a pretty, colorful necklace for her.

That took me back to my younger days when a young “swain” had made me a cross from popsicle sticks, so I couldn’t complain when seeing my grandson’s resourcefulness. Kids are certainly creative.

Tortex guitar picks are carefully designed and manufactured to give the characteristic maximum memory and minimum wear that made original tortoise shell famous.

I know a lot of guitarists aren’t near as picky about picks as I am. So why should you be? After all, there is no pick that will make you play better and they are all generally the same.

WRONG. I thought that too at first. I figured it’s just a piece of plastic, how hard can it be to pick one? I started out with fender pick because they looked pretty conventional and they were moderately priced. I blindly went through about ten of these due to them all breaking.

If you knew me well you’d know that I thrash my guitar…a lot… Even the thickest picks would wear down on me within a week, and most of them were too slick to stay in my sweaty hand during these crash and burn guitar playing moments. I came to realize that I needed a heavy duty pick with a good grip that would retain it’s shape for at least a couple of weeks.

At first I thought metal was the answer. I mean, it’s hard as rock and most of them come with a good grip on them. But after playing with them I discovered the sound was not to my liking. It sounded too buzzy with metal. That’s about the time I discovered tortex picks. I was amazed. They had the best grip I have ever felt and kept their shape for weeks! I instantly bought every size I could get all the way from the thinnest read to the bulky blue one.

Months later I’m keeping a stock of these picks in my house. For solos I prefer the green one because it’s got just the right resistance for that fast picking but not too much so that it slows you down. For strumming I use the orange. It’s just perfect…

I cannot express to you how much you need to try this pick. Your wasting your money on anything other than Dunlop. Get the tortex and see what I mean!

I used to use Dunlop Tortex picks. I switched to these just to see if they’re better. And they are. They’re much faster, they pluck strings more consistently, and its much easier to execute pinch harmonics with them.

Maybe I just don’t play hard enough, but I would still seriously reccommend these picks to anyone.
