They say the converted are the worst proselytizers. Well, I'm back to say that I've fallen in love with my new Adamas picks. I love 'em. After using only them since I received mine, I tried at band practice last night to go back to my regular Pickboy Classics and found I really was not into them anymore. I also A-B'd - again at band volume - my V-picks with the Adamas picks. The V-picks are darn good but advantage to the Adamas'es!

My strategy too!

But I have to say, my intial reaction is a little disappointment -- I expected something more, tonally. And in my hand they get slippery.

I'm gonna keep playing around with them, but given price and availabilty I suspect I'm going to stick with 1.5 or 2 mm Gator Grips.

I've never A/B'd them against the Adamas picks, but the Telefunken picks are outstanding, tonally and otherwise.

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!

I just found this thread and wanted to let everyone know that I have a supply of the original Adamas Picks. I bought all that Dunlop had when I was told the following by my Dunlop Rep.

I owned a music store in Indiana for several years and this is what I was told by my Dunlop Rep, maybe someone from Dunlop can confirm this: The graphite used for the original Adamas pick came from a small mine in Africa. Supposedly it was a unique blend of graphite that came from this mine. Several years ago the supply of this graphite was exhausted and was the reason for them stopping production. There was a small batch that they found after they stopped production. I bought all of both of these batches of picks and still have some of them left.

As far as the new ones vs old, maybe the new ones are a different blend to replicate the old blend? (Completely speculating here). I haven't seen or held any of the new batch so I have no way of comparing the two. I also have never seen nor held the Telefuken so no way of comparing them either.

Anyhow if anyone is interested in the original Adamas Picks I am willing to start parting with some of them. I would do $30 per bag of 6, limit of one bag per person. I would offer free shipping within the US. If I still have a decent supply after this first offering of one bag per person I may make another bag available for those interested.
