Tortex® Pitch Black Jazz III Guitar Picks

12 Pack

The Tortex Jazz III combines the bright tone and snappy, aggressive attack of Tortex with the superior control, speed, and definition provided by the Jazz III shape.

The Long Story.

First released in 1981, Tortex® Picks were originally intended to be a high quality replacement for tortoiseshell. Jim Dunlop’s trail-blazing creation became so much more than that, however, establishing its own identity and becoming the new standard by which all other picks are judged.

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 we stick to Jim’s original formula, Tortex Picks remain our bestselling pick line. And we still make them at the Dunlop HQ in Benicia, California.

With Tortex, Jim Dunlop launched a revolution, and the world of picks has never been the same. The turtle logo is instantly recognizable, and the vibrant Tortex palette has become a gauging shorthand for guitar players. Go into any music store and ask for Green or Yellow Picks—chances are, you’ll be shown a pack of Tortex .88mm or .73mm Picks. Countless musicians across the world, representing every genre and playing style, have chosen Tortex Picks to help them do what they love.

PLEASE NOTE -- Because Reverb does NOT have "add on" pricing for the shipping charges of more than one item, I will calculate and refund as much of the added charges for more than one item as I can while still covering the costs incurred. Most of my items are light weight so you can expect a pretty decent refund in MOST (but not all) cases.

I will ship with tracking to the listed regions. To negotiate shipping rates to other locations, please send me a message. Nearly all items are sent by First Class Mail and normally take about two to three days for the Continental US and only a day or two longer for any other US location. APO/EPO addresses do take longer however.

Special Conditions

Just to be clear -- new condition means unopened! Returns for items sold with "free shipping" will have a deduction for the actual amount of my discounted postage, NOT including the cost of the box. This is because the cost of the shipping is still there and I had to pay it when I sent it to you. Only the government thinks there actually is a free lunch.
