My go to pick is the Petrucci Jazz iii but ever since I tried the purple Delrin Dunlop 500 1.5mm (Malmsteen equivalent pick) I wondered how the chirp might be on a pointy, jazz iii Delrin pick. I like the low chirp of the Malmsteen pick but couldn’t get by with the lack of note definition from a rounded tip. Anyhow, I am tentatively impressed with the Dava Delrin Jazz grip tips. I’m referring to the red ones, in a pack of six with a product number D9024.
The size is a bit bigger than a jazz iii; almost exactly the same as a Petrucci iii. The control is similar to a Petrucci but you’ll feel a difference with the Delrin, for better or worse. The chirp is subjectively less than the Ultex Petrucci as well as the nylon standard jazz iii.
I’m more impressed than I expected to be. I’m finding the chirp control with a bright, Malmsteen-like rig to be advantageous. I wonder what the wear characteristics will be like in the long haul. I’m interested to hear your experiences with these picks.
