Dunlop's 475 Big Stubby 3.0MM (the purple pick) is astounding. It has an indentation so the pick doesn't go out of position. The pick is light AND hard for perfect string control. When you strum a string, whether it be on a bass or a regular guitar, the string moves, not the pick and the string. The pick is tapered at the tip..again, very helpful in note control. What else..oh, I read in a Musiciansfriend review that this pick will break guitar strings. I imagine it will..if you are a gorilla. Then again, if you are a gorilla, your banana will break guitar strings. My gramma has gone to God. But if she was still here on earth, I would send her Big Stubby 3.0's for Christmas. (And she doesn't even play!)

Guitarists have for decades taken for granted the shortcomings of common celluloid and delrin picks - that as you play higher up the neck, string tension increases, and the flexibility of the pick comes into play, making control more difficult. It's a bit like driving a race car with thick mittens; driving slow is fine, but things get sloppy as you go faster. And of course if you push too hard, or sometimes just play too long, the pick eventually breaks. Note most rock guitarists with the lineup of fresh picks on a mic stand.

Leave it to science to solve the problem, starting over fifty years ago. In 1953, General Electric created a new super-durable polycarbonate resin called Lexan. Lexan is the miracle material now used in fighter jet canopies, bullet-proof glass, and iPods. And now it's used in picks - the Stubby series from Dunlop.

What could signify strength and speed more than using aerospace industry material to play the guitar? It's certainly a lot different from using normal picks; They sound hard before you even pluck the strings - shake a pack of Stubbys and the clatter is similar to a stack of glass chips. Visually, the Big Stubby certainly looks like glass, and the opaque violet hue with occasional whorls of color is original enough. To the fingers, the feel is of a light plastic, with the textured indentation on both sides providing fantastic grip.

But then you try to bend it. Using both hands, fingers searing with pain, it's unclear if it's the pick or your fingers that are flexing, and it feels as though your bones would break before the pick would. This is definitely bullet-proof glass. Actually playing with the Big Stubby verifies all notions of solidity, with the pick remaining steadfastly sturdy regardless of playing conditions.

First, I love these picks and used them exclusively for years. I have dozens of them, they never wear out. I used to use them when playing in a loud rock band, and never had any issues. They are very comfortable, and easy to control.

Now the bad: the sound. Not the sound of the plucked not itself, but the hard plastic of the pick against the string makes a very noticeable "plinking" sound that is audible through your amp. If all you're playing is loud music, this may not be an issue. But I essentially stopped using them when I started playing in a different band with more dynamics, because during quieter passages the plinking sound of the pick on the strings is VERY noticeable to me.

So, too bad. I think these are great picks, but I'd like them to be made of a softer material.

There's already a very long, accurate, and comprehensive review for these picks on here that I don't think I could top-- so I'm just gonna list a few things about these picks that he didn't mention.

1) There is an indentation in the pick, where the logo is. If you're an index tip and thumb picker, or an index knuckle and thumb picker, this will feel great. If you pick like me (index and middle tips on either side of the bottom, thumb on top) or any other variation of holding a pick, the indentation in the center will take a little getting used to. I didn't like the indentation at first, but now I really like the empty space between my middle and index fingers. It helps me keep them in place at the sides, where they're the most comfortable for me when I pick.

2) As long as you're not very aggressive with your picking (and I don't mean fast, I mean hard) these picks will last. Don't turn away from these so soon, though, aggressive players, because with these picks you don't have to use as much energy to get a hard sound from the string. Once you've adapted to that, this picks will last a good while.

3) For an angled pick sound, you won't have to angle the pick as much, due to thee smooth and slight curve to the surface of these picks. The surface also makes transitioning to an angled pick sound far more fluid with these.

4) The 3.0MM version of this pick is really only necessary if you're playing bass. They work fantastically on one. I haven't used the 1.0MM version, so I can't say anything on that one.

I will never go back to flat picks, or any pick that isn't made from this same material. These are truly amazing picks, and help your shredding sail smoothly. I used to use tortex picks, and swore by them, but these blow them out of the water.
