    Dunlop Jazz III and Gravity Sunrise 1.5 or Classic 1.5 every now and then.

    All depending on what I play and what I feel like.

    I recently stopped by a shop nearby and found some really cool picks made by a local guy. I didn't think to ask if he had a website though, I will next time as is like to have a few more of the really thick ones(I'd say 5 or 6 mm). They aren't as refined as V-Picks but the acrylic ones have a very similar grip. I thought the rough edges added too much of a scraping sound so I smoothed them out a good bit and rounded off the tips slightly. Now, they are great! They are effortless to hold on to and the speed I'm getting is awesome! I'm afraid of getting to like them too much and not being able to get more lol. I'm going to try like hell to not lose them but these things happen. I don't know what it is but I like these better than the V-Picks of similar thickness I've tried. Maybe its the slightly rough edges, maybe they are what is killing the chirp. I love the feel of thicker V-Picks but can't kill the chirp no matter what I do. I had to adjust my picking angle but I can do it on medium pointeds.
