    I'm just curious, has anyone used a Dunlop Primetone pick for bass, and if so, how good of a bass pick are they??

    The 3mm medium tip looks promising.

    Im using a couple versions of the Prime gypsys, an i like them. Im new to plectrum, so im still figuring out what works best. The tone of these works well for my bass.

    Have not used them, however, I do use the Dunlop Big Stubby in a 2.0 mm to 3.0 mm thickness. They look about the same, perhaps with the point being a little more - to a point ...

    Just tried out the "other" Primetones, 1.4 lrg triangles. Like them alot with the manhole cover grip. Now wish the gypsy polys came in a 3mm triangle.

    I love it but I'm just using the sculpted .93 one. Probably not the most optimal for bass but, it works for me!

    I'd heard about them before, but recently bought a pack (0.88) and I LOVE em.
    The shape is perfect for my hands. Traditional and relatively large, but not overly so. The little grip in the handle works well, and the slide over the strings really easily. Definitely my favorite picks, now.
