    Perfect for a Thicker Pick Feel

    These green Tortex picks are just the right thickness for that thicker pick feel. Not too thick but just right for the right tone with a "thick" pick gauge.

    Howdy, folks,

    I ordered a bunch of them Dunlop 418P Turtlex guitar picks--they work real good when I'm playing the bass mandolincello, which, as you all must surely know, has 8 pretty high-tension strings. Anyway, right 'bout two weeks ago I broke one durin' a solo version of Foggy Mountain Breakdown at a revival meeting. Mighty embarassin'. So I had this busted pick, and I right quick remembered the Sweetwater two-year guarantee. I called my own Sales Engineer, Matt Kreager, and told him of my trials and tribulations. He offered to set me up with a replacement pick, but I said, No, sir, that pick has been with me for almost eight months. It has my palm grease, my sweat and maybe even some tears worked deep into it. It's like an extension of my fingers and my soul, I said. I can't put it out of its misery just 'cause it's broke.

    Matt, bless his heart, understood. I sent him the broken pick and by gum if he didn't have it back to me in one piece in three days! And he did such a good job of fixin' it that I can't even see where it was originally busted. Now that's what I call All-American workmanship and Service!

    Sweetwater will always be my go-to place to pick up musical stuff for my original music Applachia bluegrass band: The Cottonwood Quintet Minus One. (We had ta' add "Minus One" cause Cletus got caught by the feds making 'shine out in the woods. He'll be back with the band in about 120 days.) Way to go, Sweetwater! And way to go, Matt!

    These picks for me are great. I have tried others and they where to soft or to hard. I like how they feel overall

    Just Right

    These picks are perfect for me. They are thick enough for palm muting, but not too thick that they distort the sound when strumming

    Best Picks Out There

    For years I used celluloid picks--often Fender--and they certainly did an adequate job. But then someone introduced me to Tortex picks and I knew right away that I'd never go back to celluloid.

    Of course, picks influence the sound in various ways, depending upon the material they are made of. Tortex picks glide over the strings smoothly, less percussively than celluloid picks. Consequently, they yield a more natural string sound. (Those who prefer a very bright sound, may be disappointed.) In addition, in a way that's hard to describe, they just feel right as you hold them. They are also less slick, so it's easy to keep a grip on them. These things are incredibly durable, too.

    I initially experimented with several different Tortex picks. I liked the 0.73 mm (yellow), and to my surprise, for some things I also liked the 1.0 mm (blue)--a heavier pick than I would usually go for. But the best all-around compromise for me turned out to be right in the middle--the 0.88 mm green picks. Nice balance between flexibility and stiffness for both rhythm and lead. Sometimes I will go with the slimmer yellows for strictly rhythm playing, however.

    Note that I've only used these on electric guitars, as I generally play purely with the fingers on an acoustic, so this review pertains to their usage in that regard.

    Tortex Mean Green

    I've been using these picks for about 30 years! I tried others before I found these mean greenies, but nothing else lasted or had the response that the Tortex's do. They're flexible enough for rhythm and stiff enough for lead. And like I said, they wear like steel!!! They have a great feel and grip. I don't plan on ever changing!!!

    The perfect pick!

    30 years and hundreds of picks later, I've finally realized Tortex picks are the best picks on the planet. Perfect tone, perfect grip, perfect feel... they can't be beat. The only question is-- which is the right gauge for you?

    For my money, the .88s can't be beat. Thick enough to give you a full tone, yet thin enough to still be flexible and reactive to your picking style.

    Easy to keep your grip and will last forever, there is a reason so many guitar greats play Tortex.
