Great pick!

You should often choose your plectrum (pick) to suit your style, grip strength, technique and the genre of music you play to. I myself play heavy metal.

I will rate out of 10 and try to be subjective and respect other guitar player techniques and grip strength.

GRIP - 8/10
Medium to Strong grip strength players will be mostly suited to this pick. If you have a softer grip then you will notice that the pick has a tendency to slant towards an uncomfortable angle and will cause you to drop it. To my style this pick is near excellent in terms of grip.

DURABILITY - 9/10
These picks can go on for a long time and take quite a beating. Being mostly a thrash metal player I've found these picks to be able to take quite a beating. These picks will take the shape of you playing angle as you break them in. Excellent durability.

QUALITY - 8/10
Quality is consistent in all of the picks. They don't bend or break, nor do they get out of shape. Naturally the Dunlop logo will fade slowly as you put more miles on these. Other than that they are of great quality.

Just your normal pick, but not ideal for metal
Breax 08.10.2022
Overall, nice picks for not a lot of money. The biggest downside for me, though, is the rounded edge. I would rather prefer a sharper edge, as it makes a ton of difference in terms of accuracy, especially for metal. On the other hand, the sharper the edge, the less durable it is. What I mean by this is that, after some time, you will shred through the edge of your pick and it will eventually become dull and, as a result, playing gallops or tremolo picking will become noticeably harder. If you play for a couple of hours everyday, it is usually a dream that your pick lasts for a week. In practice, it may become dull after 1-2 rehearsals, depending on your technique. So it is really a question of how much money you can pay for your picks, as they are, like strings, are not meant to last forever.

If you are just starting guitar, you will probably enjoy these picks. They are nice to touch, reasonably grippy, though nothing special. And they will last longer than sharper picks. They might be okay for beginner practice, however, if you can spend a little more money, I would suggest getting something like the Ibanez Grip Wizard series picks, as they are supperior in terms of texture, shape and, most importantly, sharpness. If your aim is to play as clean as possible, sharper picks can make your life significantly easier. For genres different from metal, thess picks are probably okay.

I have used these picks for more than 10 years, the choice of the brand was obvious, Dunlop picks have been used by millions of musicians for a long time, these picks have established themselves all over the world as very high quality and reliable, the company is introducing new and new developments, trying to improve them, making various models mediators for every taste. I would have played further on these picks, but changed the specifics and technique of sound production, which required greater thickness.
