I haven't tried the Telefunkens although I'm curious now. I use either the Adamas 2.0mm listed above, or most often Dunlop Gator Grip 2.0mms.
They feel almost exactly like the Adamas and sound similar, although with slightly less bite on the attack. But for $2.50 for a 12 pack at any Guitar Center they're hard to beat... I'm the kind of person who loses them, chews on them, runs them through the wash, etc.
I have a ton of these Gator Grips 2.0's. Nice grip (not slippery when sweating) and tone. I like to have my bass volume up close to all the way, adjust my amp volume accordingly, and pick as heavily as I can for the best tone/volume. These picks help me to find that sweet spot for the sound depending on the venue.
During a gig there are several of these picks on top of my rig, some on the floor depending upon if I 'm fingerpicking, an ample supply in my pocket so I don't run out of them, and extras to throw out into the throngs of adoring fans as souveniers......
