    Yeah. I got a viper? Didnt need it. FLP is thick and inflexible, like the title says. Primetone is just so nice and warm + easy pick attack. Its like the fingerstyle of picks.

    Wow, you went all Wegenpicks on us, eh? Interested to hear your reviews as they're about as close to Django's real picks as it gets.

    I like 'em.
    I've had Wegens,but I'm finding that I favor big thick triangle picks.
    Three corners that are the same.
    You don't have to orient the pick in your hand.

    The "Button"takes some getting used to.

    Here's some new ones.

    A long awaited GP 2867 Tiger Eye stone pick has arrived from Israel.
    It's a 33.87 triangle.
    4.32mm thick.

  8. I used the Dunlop 3mm Big Stubby for years. I finally got around to using the triangle version of it, and it's perfect for me. Highly recommended.

    You all are going to laugh or raise an eyebrow, but my main pick are the thinnest Tortex picks (the red ones). Originally, I was a guitarist, and spent a lot of time practicing alternate picking from my jazz guitar lessons. I hold the pick closer to the point to get more finger meat in the sound. I like the orange ones , which are the 2nd thinnest as well.

    I like the tortex ones too, so I am with you. I tend to use 0.46mm nylon ones on bass though. I don't get the desire for thick picks. But then I play fingerstyle 97.218% of the time, but I have long nails, so I sort of have thick picks built in as my nails are very hard.

    Try one.
    There's a reason they are bought and used.

    This has been an awesome thread to follow!
    What brand / type are the 2 red picks in the 2nd row?
    Lastly, do you have any particular favorites and is there a particular store / maker you prefer?

    They are from Reverb.
    A Tone-Master Delta pick on the right.
    A Del Arte Kirinite Lava on the left.

    I prefer the GP 2867 Tiger Eye stone,the Winspear Battleaxe.

    Djangobooks Django Jazz Manouche picks.
    Some of these are expensive for a pick!

    I favor Timber Tones stone picks out of Ohio.
    They are delivered quickly.

    And stone picks from Amnon Dayam in Israel.
    Those take about two months for delivery.
    Do a search on "Welcome to the magnificent world of Gemstones and Stone Guitar Picks in Particular" which will direct you to his website.
    Or The Stone Guitar Picks Store
