wat make pick do u use??? do u even use a pick???
there's no poll
woopsy. alright im too lazy to make a poll. just say wat ya use, im curious. i personnaly use Dunlop, which i think kick ass cuse there thick and come in pretty colors
Er, a Dunlop Tortex Triangle .88mm
Whatever is laying around...im not fussy.
Dunlop in Small or Medium. I like my picks the same way I like my women:thin and flexible.
Ha, brilliant! I don't use picks too often, but when I do I can't stand thick ones. How do people use picks that don't bend?
Dunlop as well, except I like my picks like I like my men, thick and hard.
I've got some Dava picks that are pretty cool.
I Actually like this really small pretty thick clear pick, it tends to be what i grab most of the time except i'm not sure who makes it because the name is worn off it and I have yet to find one like it in any store. I like the thicker ones for heavier songs, I find I get a bold sound with it, which i have problems getting with thinner picks. But for most songs I use my fingers.
Dunlop Sharp 1.5mm.
Jim Dunlop. Nylon. 60mm. It's the old school country pick.
Jim Dunlop. Nylon. 73mm. It's the Motown pick
OMG thats one thick pick!
Clayton 1.0 and .8 mm
Dunlop Tortex .88 and .6 mm
COOL with a textured grip area in 1.0 and .6 mm.
It all depends on the song as to which one I use.
I have a bunch of Fender picks which I collected at the time that I had a guitar, but I dont use them for bass.
yea i use dunlop as well. it seems that dunlop is winning this poll??!! so heres the next, wats ure favorite color dunlop mine is black!(i colored it with a sharpy, whats up with those new sharpy to go things???)
how can u stand thin picks on bass??? i cant get them too work how i like it.
Well, I tend to use my Claytons more than the others.
I was the same way for years. Since then I have improved my skill and now for me its all about what the song dictates IME. Certain songs require different picking techniques and some its about the tone that is created by using a certain type (thick, thin, nylon) of pick.
^^^^(german for thank u)that helped alot
fndr thn tortis shel.
dunlop .88's... the gray ones. with the textured top... ya...
and the dunlop with the rhyno on it...
I've always worked at being a good fingerstyle player, but in my latest band (Baron Von Otto Matic), a surf-rock trio, the drummer/leader insisted on me using a pick.
Thanks to a recent article on Sonny Landreth in G***** Player, I discovered Herco Thumb/Flatpicks.
Now they are all I play. I need extra-heavies though, or else they end up like this:
