I kinda want to try some out to see if they make as big a difference to "The Edge" tone as people say (not that I want to copy him...just curious). Does anyone know where I can get some shipped in Canada?
Yeah, they are great. I also use Tortex M3 (jazz medium, green) when my hand feels heavy. After trying these smaller picks, all the other ones just feel awkward to hold and slow to respond.I just started using dunlop Jazz 2 picks, and I am just floored...my favorite pick now period. So nice to play with and makes playing fast really easy.
I might give those a try.just FYI the edge uses the traditional teardrop shaped ones close the the bottom of that link...he uses the rounded side of the pick and that rough material is apparently where the magic is
I like thick picks (I used to play around with the 2-3 mm stubbys and more recently the Jazz III - black) and I find the Dava's awesome. The "thickness" factor doesn't vary too much but there is a subtle difference. When I get into it I like to dig in quite a bit and if I ease off the Dava a bit, I don't break my strings. Definitely worth a try. sdsreI haven't tried the Dava pick--but here's what makes me wonder if it's the pick for me-
I like thick picks--and this pick says it changes depending on where/how you grip it. Well I like to grip it differntly depending on what I'm playing--but I still want a thick pick.--so would I find it annoying that if I grip it differently it may not play like a thick pick anymore?
I'd still like to check one out--but I'm skeptical.
On the other hand I bought an Ultex pick to try today, along with a Tortex wedge.
I've mostly used Tortex purples fro about 10 years--but I've also started using the Teckpicks (as I posted above) and Gator Grips. I like to try differnt picks every now & then. That's how I came to buy a Triplet pick years ago--and the Stash double pick. Maybe I'll post my assortment of picks one day--I have several types--some as "souvenir" or "novelty" or "fun" picks--some as "working" picks, and others I bought to try out, that maybe didn't quite work out.
