Dell Krauchi replied to Michael Shaw's discussion What kind of/maker of pick do you like best?
"Hello, As an instructor, I recommend that my students use a Dunlop Jazz Teardrop 1.0mm plectrum made of Tortex.   Very durable, provide good intonation, and have a much better feel than equivalent nylon plectrums."

Dell Krauchi replied to michael medex's discussion why do picks turn in your hand as you play?
