I've used many picks during my time as a musician. I'm very happy to say that the 1.0mm Tortex is the pick for me. For a long while I used two different picks, one for electric and one for acoustic, The Tortex 1.0mm is thick enough to keep my tone warm and mellow. The coating helps me hold on to it. I'm not sure if there is anything else out there for me at this point.
