Dunlop 418P Tortex Standard Picks, .60mm, 12 Pack
Jim Dunlop Tortex picks come in a variety of gauges. The different thickness of a plectrum suits particular styles of guitar playing. Players normally try different types of picks to find one that suits their own playing style.
The plectrums are made of a special plastic known as Tortex. This material is designed to simulate the effect of tortoiseshell picks. The plastic has a smooth, silky, opaque surface that is surprisingly easy to grip even with sweaty fingers
Guitar picks vary in thickness to accommodate the different playing styles and types of strings. Thinner plectra are more flexible and tend to offer a wider range of sounds, from soft to loud, and produce a "click" that emphasises the attack of the picking. However, some argue that heavier picks produce a brighter tone. Tortex picks are available in the following thicknesses (millimetres): 0.50, 0.60, 0.73, 0.88, 1.00 and 1.14.

What can you say about picks? They do the job. Think there are the ones John Frusciante uses. If they’re good enough for him...
Very nice picks
A lovely medium/thin pick for those who want to play a bit of everything, they really are the best all rounders. Use with lighter strings and especially on acoustic guitars if you plan to play rhythm. This is where jangle comes from.
My favourite picks at a reasonable price
Nice picks for a few styles of playing
