Triangle Picks


Recommended Posts

I used to use large triangle tortex picks but recently switched to Dunlop prime tone 1.5 mm non-grip small triangles which work much better for me on both guitar and bass. These are made from polyetherimide like ultex picks, but they are coloured brown which makes them look a bit like super-expensive blue chip picks.

I tend to go for triangle ones, on the rare occasion that I need to use a pick, simply because there's more meat to them and they slip around less.  My preferred pick is the tort Rotosound 1mm, which is the same one Bruce Foxton uses.

I’ve used the big triangle Dunlop picks, first Tortex, now Ultex for years. Much easier to keep hold of and as they’re triangular 3 picks for the price of one so if they do turn whilst playing less of an issue. The Ultex have a more modern defined sound to them than the Tortex imo.

yep I’m liking Ultex better than nylon or Toretex and the triangle 1.14mm is my preferred pick at the moment

I'm not a pick player and only use them when I have to.  We are doing 'Would' by Alice in Chains and the bass part has to be done with a pick and there is a bit of strumming in it too so I have just got a few different thinner Dunlop triangle picks.  As well as the Tortex and Ultex I also got 'Flex' 73mm and 88mm picks.  So far for strumming, I'm liking the Flex 73mm picks.
