I'll have to A-B them against a Telefunken one day and hear for myself (BTW, if there's anyone with Telefunkens who's never tried the new issue Dunlop Adamas who wants to swap 1 each to try 'em, PM me).
I did A-B the Adamas with my even thicker V-picks. Comparing these two, the Adamas are much more traditional sounding. The V-picks, in contrast, really sound different (more harmonic content in the tone). Myself, I love the tone of the V-picks for many types of music but with my overall Dead rig, I'm loving the new Dunlop Adamas picks. Just my 2 cents!
