Dunlop Ultex Sharp Picks Review
Dunlop Manufacturing, jimdunlop.com
Player’s Pack (six picks), $4.17
You gotta figure a monster riffer like Metallica’s James Hetfield knows guitar picks. So when the Het teams up with a company like Dunlop to create a new pick, you know the result will be nothing short of spectacular.
Which is exactly how we feel about Dunlop’s new Ultex Sharp. Based on a coveted, vintage tortoiseshell pick in the company’s private collection, and designed in association with Hetfield, the Ultex Sharp has a rigid body that tapers into a thinner, sculpted tip for greater control and speed, making it perfect for shredders and acoustic flatpick-style players. The pick’s seamless, contoured edge offers a variety of playing surfaces and tones. Virtually indestructible, the Ultex Sharp delivers crisp tone and the quick-release attack for which Ultex picks are known. The picks are available in .73, .90, 1.0, 1.14, 1.40 and 2.0mm gauges.
