If you like the triangles, try a medium or heavy Fender Tru Shell. No flex. Warm.
Casein make up.

You will have to research pick thickness. They are not the thick picks you might expect.

As mentioned, the Primetone, to me, seem a little stiffer, though it's possible the bevel impacts the feel. (I used the .73 Ultex for years on electric, and recently got some of the Primetones in a lot of sizes and gauges to try.)

The nice thing about the Primetones is that there are some other gauges. I've got some .88s (351 shape) that might be something to try. I'm pretty much entirely acoustic these days and am using a 1.4 Primetone triangle currently. I really like those picks, especially the ones with raised logo/lettering so they don't slip around at all.

I just got some Ultex Tri's in .73 and while they sound fine, and louder as expected, they do flex more than I'm comfortably with. Perhaps in time I can adjust to it. But anyway, my question, is there a common pick material that would be stiffer than Ultex at the same .73 or so thickness?
Hi Hateful,
Both the Tortex and Ultex 1.14, as supplied are pretty dead, but with proper finishing and bevelling can become far more superior pick!

Two tired brains comparing notes. That'll get us far.

Yes, to clarify, fellow AGRers, the tAd stands for triangle in the BC nomenclature, as the two addled brains here have agreed.

Jay, between us I'd gather we ALMOST make a whole brain.

Say hello to the Queen for me!

I have heard Charles is tone-deaf, but I'm sure it's just a nasty rumor.

After all the messing around with fancy synthetic animal protein two for a hundred buck wonder picks whoda thought id go
back to celluloid 100 for 30 buck picks. but here i am.
99 percent of the stages i play are flat black. If i drop one i can
see it right off.
Most acoustic players start thinner but gradually play thicker picks. My ideal range these days is 1.15-1.50 mm. Above 1.50 mm, I become all thumbs.

I really like Tusq picks by Graphtech. They come in several thicknesses and shapes, and impart a full-bodied, warm tone.
