Somewhat specialised, but excellent
cianh, 13.04.2017
Firstly this is
a) a very hard and rigid pick,
b) quite a small pick and
c) unusually pointed.

Pros:
Lots of control over dynamics
Very precise because of fine point

Cons:
Not suited to relaxed strumming
Small size isn't to all tastes
Pointed end dulls somewhat quickly
Awkward to find replacements when you fall in love with them and eventually lose them all

Being a Jazz III, it is somewhere between the tiny standard Dunlop Jazz picks, and a more middle of the road pick. The extra rigidity means that any change in force applied (hitting the strings harder or more gently) is translated to force on the strings. Thinner, more bendy picks use up some of this force by bending under the resistance of the strings. This design gives more control over dynamics, but this is potentially a downside too.

If the aim is to produce an even volume across all strings and multiple strokes with slight differences in each (eg when strumming chords), then this pick will make your life much more difficult precisely because it will show up every tiny difference in pick attack. It is also more likely to be dropped if held loosely when strumming because when it doesn't flex, it can potentially bounce off the strings instead of following through.

Overall they take a little while to get used to, but they're the only pick that I and some others have used for a long time. Definitely worth getting one set of to try out

Speeds up your playing!
Panos!, 27.12.2020
I am definitely not a John Petrucci fan, but boy does he know how a pick should be in order to make you play to the maximum of your speed (and a bit faster)!
Over the years I have tested many, many picks, and from the whole bunch I find that these are the best for when I want my playing to be fast, accurate, bright and aggressive! Its not my "go to" pick for everything, my all time favourite is still Dunlop Ultex 1.0 (421) which can handle from strumming to leads and from jazz to metal with ease! But these fabulous picks are my "special weapons". John helped Dunlop make their already excellent and extremely popular jazz III pick become truly a weapon to the skillful (or not so skillful indeed) hands! With their dual grip texture, small and sharp shape and hard and thick (but not excessively) material, these pickup makes me want to play faster! And they keep their shape intact quite long too!
I definitely suggest trying them out!

Long live the ultex
26.01.2017
I believe when you buy a signature model of something, the main reason is 'cause you at least admire that one person.
In my case Petrucci is one of my all time favorite guitarist and I thought his picks must have been pretty good.

I'm not at all surprised that my thoughts were confermed since the first time I used one.
The grip it's simply fantastic and the very tip of the pick is smoother than any other pick I used, giving this Dunlop JP an edge over many other pick particularly if you play fast, the pick almost glides over the strings, awesome!

I need to say that the tone that comes out is more full and solid than most picks and if you like a small but durable and fast pick, I strongly recommend this one.

Of course it's more suitable if you play metal or hard rock perhaps, but still it's very versatile for other styles.

The only flaw I found is that it's dimention doesn't make it suitable for playing for example punk rock fast stum patterns as it's like it's gonna slip out of your fingers.

Other than that for the price I suggest to buy one pack and try it anyway!

My go-to guitar pick
Sammy_J, 03.03.2021
I've been using these pickups for almost a year now and I when bought these from Thomann it was my 2nd package of these. Feels like I have finally found a pick that suits my needs perfectly and it has become my favourite guitar pick. I play mainly fast melodic extreme metal and this pick makes hitting notes much easier, it stays perfectly between my fingers and it is also good for some chuggy palm-muted playing. I've tried also some other Dunlop plectrums like Max Grip Jazz III and these Petrucci picks really overcome those. Highly recommended!
