Dunlop Tortex Picks
First released in 1981, Tortex® Picks were originally intended to be a high quality replacement for tortoiseshell. Jim Dunlop’s trail-blazing creation became so much more that, however, establishing its own identity and becoming the new standard by which all other picks are judged. With Tortex, Jim Dunlop launched a revolution, and the world of picks has never been the same. The turtle logo is instantly recognizable, and the vibrant Tortex palette has become a gauging shorthand for guitar players. Go into any music store and ask for Green or Yellow Picks—chances are, you’ll be shown a pack of Tortex .88mm or .73mm Picks. Countless musicians across the world, representing every genre and playing style, have chosen Tortex Picks to help them do what they love. They are highly durable with great memory and just the right amount of flexibility for a snappy, fluid attack that's bright and crisp. Whether you’re playing searing electric leads or strumming acoustic passages, the appeal of Tortex as a sonic paintbrush is universal.
