Customer Reviews

Dramatic Results Since I Switched to this PickI had to write this review because of my recent significant experience with Dunlop Jazz III picks, not to be confused with Jazz III "XL" picks, which are larger. I started playing 3 and 1/2 years ago and only took 5 or 6 lessons, mainly to ensure I had the basic form right. I used different picks, primarily Gibson and Fender Mediums, primarily because the guy at the guitar store recommended them, and did not really know what I needed.As time went on, I tried the Dunlop Jazz III XLs and stuck with them for three years. It worked great for Jazz, Blues, Rock, and Metal. Also, the wide base worked well with aggressive strumming, and the stiffness allowed for aggressive single-note lines. You could really move those strings around with authority and accuracy. Yet I soon realized that I was in a rut, and could not increase my speed during my practice of scales and fast riffs.A couple of years ago, a guy had recommended the smaller, original Jazz IIIs, but I tried them and did not like them. Around three months ago, I picked one up from the original package that had been sitting around, and I soon found my speed increasing. This was especially true during string-skipping maneuvers. I believe the wideness of the Jazz III XLs made them a little ungainly for me at higher speeds when maneuvering between strings and having to take awkward picking angles. The smaller size of the Jazz IIIs helped minimize these impediments. I use both the original nylon AND the Stiffo versions, although I favor the Stiffo because I don't want my picks deforming too much at speed. The Jazz III XLs do have the advantage when strumming rhythm passages. The wider base gives you more to hold on to and more leverage with the up and down strokes. But, as my fingers adjust and grow stronger, I am finding I can strum almost as well with the smaller Jazz IIIs.Finally, I like the slightly duller sound of the Dunlop Jazz IIIs, although I have discovered that when playing with distortion, it may be necessary to increase my attack to get that breakup and edge that I am looking for. Since I switched, I have to say the difference in my technical ability, and my tone, has been dramatic!5One of the most practical tools a guitar player can use.Love these picks!!!I've been playing 28ish years. I've gone through many pick phases! I started using these about 10 years ago. They are a staple in my arsenal!They are very "slippery" on the strings, while providing a sharp, biting attack. Grip is great, however. I even use them when strumming now.These are also a great tool for teaching you to gauge your pick properly. You will learn to easily and consistently get those squealing harmonics, as well as to improve your precision. I've even reached the point where I use them for heavy strumming and funk without breaking strings.5I didn't think a pick change would make a huge ...I didn't think a pick change would make a huge difference to my playing - boy was I wrong.I had stuck with a standard Dunlop Nylon (or sometimes a standard fender pick, or a tortex) for years. I anticipated that this smaller Jazz III pick would make rhythm strumming more difficult. Well, it only took about an hour for the Jazz III to feel normal, and it immediately improved my 'galloping rhythm' playing. Haven't gone back.5These are the best guitar picks you'll findThese are the best guitar picks you'll find, don't bother looking elsewhere. At first, you'll find them difficult to use because of their size, but once you get used to them, there's no better. They are a little slippery, but I believe there are "max grip" versions of these picks that will solve that. The pointed tip is the most important aspect of this pick. As for acoustic guitar, you don't want these. Get a soft nylon pick for acoustic, you won't be able to strum with these very easily, they're stiff. Highly recommended to everyone.5Jazz IIIsI switched to Jazz III many years ago, and haven't left them since. "Regular" 351s feel like monstrosities now due to the size difference. If you're unfamiliar with Jazz IIIs, be aware that these are smaller picks and may take some getting used to. Do they increase your accuracy and speed? I can see that as a valid claim given their sharp points and smaller size as well as their taper design, but I cannot say from firsthand experience as I have basically developed my technique using these picks, so I don't really have a comparison. There is no pick or specialty product out there that will increase your accuracy and speed like practicing will.5i think I'm settling on these...I've been using Dunlop Tortex 0.6mm (orange) picks on bass for years (I keep the next thinner and next thicker picks around if I want some variety) but now that I've been back into guitar for a little over a year, I've had difficulty feeling like I could settle on any one pick...until I bought a pack of Jazz IIIs.I never particularly liked any of my Tortex picks on guitar and I had been trying and trying to settle on Dunlop's "Lil' Stubby" picks, which are about the same size and shape as these except they have rounded sides, not flat. The Lil' Stubbies can be had in 1mm, 2mm, and 3mm; the 3mm is almost like playing with a cough drop and is nice for smooth, attackless lead work a la Holdsworth or Scholz but little else. The 1mm and 2mm are more like it; unlike the 3mm, they taper to a sharp edge all the way around and have a nice little point on the business end. My problem with the 1mm - the only thickness that seemed usable for both lead and rhythm work - was that it takes a LOT of precision, which wouldn't be so bad except the point wears down rather quickly so your precision can't lock in based on a uniformly-shaped pick.The Jazz III, by contrast, soon became more like what I was wishing for from the Lil' Stubby. I am not a good guitarist by any stretch, so keep that in mind when I tell you that with the Jazz III, my right hand is handily outplaying my left. I'm finding myself wanting to do all these Steve Morse pick-every-note runs. I know it's difficult to buy picks knowledgeably online (like shoes!) but I thought it was significant that I finally feel like I may be standardizing my playing on this pick.4I much prefer them over the John Petrucci model because of the tip geometry works better for my picking styleThese have been my go-to picks for at least the last 12 years. I much prefer them over the John Petrucci model because of the tip geometry works better for my picking style. These have a slightly finer point and steeper angle the the Petrucci picks, though I do prefer the size of the Petrucci's more.These are a slippery pick, as many reviewers have mentioned. What I have been doing for years is slightly texture the grip area with a wood burner or use a razor blade to cut a slight checkerboard pattern. This improves the grip greatly and resolves any slipping issues.5An incredible little pick.I've been using Jazz III's for about a year and a half now. Before discovering these picks, I was a loyal Tortex user and thought that there couldn't be a more perfect pick out there for me. I ended up using a Jazz III for the first time at a gig when I left my pack of Tortex picks at home. Other than the small size, I didn't immediately notice anything different about my playing that night, but when I went back to using a traditional Tortex, I found the larger size to be uncomfortable. It was only then did I realize how well I got along with the Jazz III. The smaller size means your fingers are right where they need to be at all times without any extra pick getting in the way.I perform in several different bands, ranging from a progressive metal group to a jazz quintet. This pick works well in all applications and playing styles. If I had to complain about anything, it would be the longevity. I am a very heavy picker, and playing hard consistently is enough to wear down these picks fairly quickly. I do have friends who get by on one pick for an entire year before they have to swap for a new, but that is not the case for everyone. I do have to say that they last longer for me than the traditional Tortex line.The life of these picks isn't enough for me to lower the score. I firmly believe that this is one of the best all-around picks on the market. If you have larger hands or decide that the small picks don't work for you, they do make Jazz III XL's which are a traditional size. For most players though, I recommend that they give these picks a shot. They won't make you a faster player, but they will make you more efficient.5Accuracy booster!!! Try them and stick with them (they may feel strange at first) and you'll be glad you did!I recently switched from standard-sized picks to the Jazz III picks. My accuracy is SO much better now. I recently tried one of my regular picks and it felt uncomfortably huge. I mean... HUGE! And awkward.I will be a Jazz III user for life now.I have three different kind of Jazz III picks:Tortex 1.0mmNylon 1.38mmKirk Hammett Signature (unsure of thickness)I like them all and couldn't say that any one is better than the others. The Kirk Hammett one has a notch cut out in the top to help with grip. I'm unsure of how well it performs this function, but they can feel weird to a new user.I've always loved Tortex and nylon, so I switch between all three types. It would be nice if they sold a mix of all three types so you could try them all.5The sharp tip on this little red pick is tops.First off this little red pick (Dunlop Jazz III) is for lead guitar players who like to switch instantly between playing lead and finger style picking. Here's why. When switching back and forth between styles you quickly roll this little beauty into the web of your middle finger between the knuckle joints of your picking hand. Once safetly tucked away, you switch to playing fingerstyle picking. Once you have mastered this move with minimal practice, you will switch between styles quickly in one fluid movement. Other guitarists on this site have already made comments on how well this pick performs with speed and accuracy. This is one fast little badboy, and you will never have to stick another pick between your lips, or teeth, ever again. Also noteworthy, If you love pinched harmonics, as I do, you will be hard pressed to ever find a better pick for the job. By the way, with practice, you can use this pick for strumming, but you have to hold on real tight. This is hard to do if you are playing fast and loose in the pocket. Lastly...The little black pick is also a great pick that performs in a similar manner as the red one. However, the red pick is much harder than the black one. The increased hardness of the red pick improves it's speed and accuracy, and makes playing pinched harmonics easier, with more consistency. Now go forth and rock on my children, and don't leave home without one.5
