Big Jerry G fan and have been playing for about 30 plus years and finally bit the bullet and gave the Fatman's pick of choice a whirl. Very interesting the feel of graphite across the 0.11 - 54 Elixirs on my Strat. Definitely recommend trying them as they are quite unlike any pick I have tried and I have tried dozens of the most common and uncommon across them 30 years.

These make very much sense for how they shaped Garcia's unique tone, mind you, they were but one small component of his multifaceted tone. Not sure when he started playing with these but I totally can see how they fueled his attack on some of the lightning-fast single note runs he would pick individually frequently and particularly when he dug in for those fast flourishes in Jams in stalwarts like Sugaree, Playin and Uncle John's especially

These are excellent comfortable thick picks obviously a little expensive but a delight to play with. I was skeptical at first they would make a big difference after having been a long Dunlop Jazz III XL player but they do. That said I have warmed to the graphite considerably after playing them solidly for the past 2 weeks. As I stated above in relation to Jerry's style, they are great picks in particular for single-note flurries and digging in when soloing as they glide nicely through the strings. I am warming also to them for rhythm but to that end given the thickness not sure how well I will be able to adjust to these for busy funk and bubble picking but will be definitely giving it a go. At this early stage, hard to judge their life span and durability will keep an eye on that and perhaps will comment on that further into the future.

I am not sure I will fully convert to the Adamas picks and leave the Jazz IIIs behind but looks like for the next while they will be my go-to picks to determine whether these will adequately cover the wide breadth of styles I like playing.

All in all, I definitely recommend giving these thick graphite bad boys a go if you are looking to try something different and already clearly gravitate towards the heavier end of picks.

Garcia later.

First time I tried a graphite plectrum and I so far I love it. It looks tick and heavy, so I was surprised to find out that it actually feels really light in my hands. I do feel some improvement whilst picking, and it feels great. There was just thing, mine came with rough corners, so just trim that off and it will be fine.

Also ich denke, wenn sich jemand für diese Plektren interessiert, dann hat er schon einige andere durchprobiert. Die Picks sind härter als Nylon oder Delrin, aber für mein Gefühl nicht so hart wie ultem oder ultex. Mir ist immer wichtig das sie gut über die Saiten rutschen und mir ein direktes Gefühl zu den Saiten geben. Das tun sie, war aber auch zu erwarten bei 2mm.Der Klang ist hell aber nicht so aufdringlich klickend wie ultex, deshalb auch bei der Acoustic ganz gut, wenn auch nicht die 1. Wahl für Strumming.Das Spielgefühl ist weich, sicher durch das Graphit.Die Form ist Standart mit ähnlich abgerundeten kanten wie bei den Delrinpicks von Dunlop. Für mich ist der Grip ok wer aber viel Kühlflüssigkeit (schweiß) entwickelt wird mit den Adamas nicht glücklich.Alles in allem ein Allroundplektrum aus einer seltenen Materialmischung.
