Jim Dunlop guitar picks are by far my favorite brand for many reasons. Another popular brand of guitar picks are the ever-so-popular Fender guitar picks. But how does Fender’s guitar picks stack up against my favorite brand, Jim Dunlop’s guitar picks? Well, first take a look at my Jim Dunlop guitar pick product review article here. In my Jim Dunlop guitar pick product review is explains all the positive points of the Jim Dunlop guitar picks product line. The article also explains some minor guitar pick choosing factors.
Fender Guitar Guitar Picks
When it comes to Fender guitar picks, it seems that they are a bit cheaply made. Basically, Fender guitar picks have poorer quality compared to Jim Dunlop guitar picks. From my personal experimentation with Fender guitar picks, it seems that these guitar picks become easily cracked and indented on the side from use. After using a Fender guitar pick for a certain amount of time, these crevices can catch onto strings when strumming, which can essentially ruin a guitar solo altogether. Also, these cracks and crevices can make strumming chords difficult, and make pick slides increasingly difficult as well. If a pick plucks a guitar string, as the Fender guitar picks do after some use, it can break a string easier than a regular guitar pick without crevices would. Breaking guitar strings makes you spend more money, and strings, over time, become accumulatively expensive if you’re not careful with your playing style and choice of guitar pick.
Fender is famous for their popular guitars rather than their guitar picks. Fender also owns other companies, including my favorite guitar company– Jackson.
The Fender guitar picks are also somewhat generic when it comes to designs., as they all contain the famous Fender logo.
Jim Dunlop Guitar Picks
Jim Dunlop, in my opinion, is the winner in this musical equipment feud.
“The Jim Dunlop guitar picks that I use are made of Nylon, making them easier to grip compared to some other guitar pick materials used to make guitar picks” (Jim Dunlop guitar pick product review). Having a better grip on the guitar pick allows more maneuverability when picking notes or chords, whether it is in a solo or a rhythm guitar riff.
When using a Jim Dunlop guitar pick, I have never, not even in one instance, had a time where cracks or crevices formed on the guitar pick, essentially hindering my guitar playing. When using a Jim Dunlop guitar pick, doing more advanced tricks such as pick slides, pinch harmonics, solos, and so on, were much easier than when using a Fender guitar pick. With confidence in knowing that my guitar pick will not fail me, I know I can continue playing whatever I want, without having the thought of my pick accidentally plucking, and possible even breaking my guitar string(s). I know that with the Jim Dunlop guitar picks I can keep my auratic flow-like mindset without being paranoid of such a mental roadblock as the Fender guitar picks do to me.
Pick Your Guitar Pick — The Ending
Whichever guitar pick you want to choose is up to you. In my eyes, it is obvious that Jim Dunlop guitar picks are a much better choice than Fender guitar picks. The grips that are on the Jim Dunlop guitar picks ensure that they will probably not come loose while I am in the middle of a song or a solo. However, there is something better about Fender guitar picks when it comes to the battle between Fender guitar picks and Jim Dunlop guitar picks. What is this minimal win that Fender has? Fender guitar picks are generally cheaper than Jim Dunlops, but Jim Dunlop guitar picks last much, much longer.
Fender also makes guitars and basses, whereas Jim Dunlop focuses on guitar picks and other electronic accessories such as pedals. This is possibly the reason why Jim Dunlops are better made, as Fender focuses on their bigger products. Just remember, it is the little things that count.
