Building on the precision, consistency, and color-coded gauge system he introduced with Nylon Picks, Jim resolved to create a pick with a bright and snappy attack, superior memory and durability, and an improved grip. He chose Delrin as his base material and then spent more than a year developing a special treatment process to draw out its full potential. This treatment process is what sets Tortex Picks apart from all others, providing their unique grip-enhancing matte surface and aggressive attack. Finally, Jim expanded on his previous picks’ color-coded gauge system to create the bright and timeless palette that has become an industry standard. Because Dunlop sticks to Jim’s original formula, Tortex Picks remain their best-selling pick line. And they still make them at the Dunlop HQ in Benicia, California. Whether you’re playing searing electric leads or strumming acoustic passages, the appeal of Tortex as a sonic paintbrush is universal.
