Ultex Jazz III review
No more will a pick get in the way of your playing!
Dunlop has sent me a few of the new Ultex Jazz IIIs to review which should be hitting stores in the next few weeks.
Durability wise, this baby seems invincible. I tend to pick very deep and hard and with the black Jazz IIIs, within a day or two the sides would already be gashed in and worn not helping for smooth picking. I have been beating on this Ultex Jazz III for two days now and it still looks brand new with no signs of any wear or tear.
It's light weight feel makes it seem like there is no pick at all. You might think this as a bad thing at first until you hit the strings with it for the first time. Either lightly picking with feeling or digging in aggressively, you can feel every response right through your fingers. It feels like there is hot Teflon on the sides the way it buts through the strings like butter. It doesn't feel like you have a rock hard pick in your fingers and responds quickly and tightly.
With the combination of the Ultex material and fast attack, it picks up every bit of phrasing your fingers can produce with a sharp attack and feel. It doesn't have a dull feel or a dull sound. Harmonics also seem to jump off this pick with no effort.
If you are looking for the ultimate pick for feel, speed, and sound look no further. Dunlop does it again making our favorite pick ever better!
