Jim Dunlop has just released the new MAX GRIP Standard and the MAX PICK Jazz III guitar pick. These two are something that I will definitely go out and pick up to take home for a test drive when practicing later today.
I personally use the Jim Dunlop 1 mm Nylon Standard guitar pick when I play. I find that this pick is the only one that I can hold on to when I play, due to the fact that I tend to perspire a lot while preforming. While playing live at a bar in front of some spot lights, my fingers start sweating like a black dog laying out in the hot summer sun.
At first glance MAX GRIP has a molded gripping surface that is carefully concocted to provide the guitarist an incomparable non-slip guitar pick surface. It looks like it’s made for all you speed pickers (I’m certainly not one of them) and hard strummers (that’s me) out there that demand extreme precision and stamina, without losing control of their pick. I remember one time performing with this guy and I lost my pick on stage when we were playing Whole Hearted by Extreme. It was both embarrassing and frustrating for me at that time so from then onwards, I use the Jim Jim Dunlop 1 mm Nylon Standard.
Has anyone out there checked this thing out? If you have one, would you recommend it to other players?
Keep on Jammin’
