The Tripp shape is a tri-sided pick with 3 different tips. It combines one rounded tip from the Axis, one sharp tip from the Stealth and one from the Striker. This essentially gives you 3 picks in one. Nothing wrong about that. Rounded tips create a softer, less bright tone compared to pointed tips.
There are 4 sizes: Mini (Jazz size), Big Mini, Standard (Traditional size) and XL.
Mini: .96" wide, .93" tall
Big Mini: 1.06" wide, 1.02" tall
Standard: 1.16" wide, 1.12" tall
XL: 1.26" wide, 1.22" tall
There are also several grip holes to choose from. Grip holes are not available for the 1.5mm thickness.
There are many variations combining size, thickness, grip holes and choice of polished bevels. There is definitely a pick for every guitar player.
The bevels on each pick are shaped on a grinding wheel which creates rough bevels. Those bevels are then polished or left unpolished (which we call ‘Master Finish’).
The Polished version glides across the strings with very little effort.
The Master Finish (unpolished) version is a bit brighter and creates a different release off the string. It allows you to ‘dig in’ a bit more. It is just a personal preference.

They feel nice in your hand and have a smooth attack.
Read a lot of reviews for slow shipping... I didnt experience that, about a week or so and they were at my door.
I bought a variety of sizes, bevel finishes and thickness's of the 007 series. I ended up really liking the 3mm so far, which is twice as thick as what I played for with years before. So don't be afraid to order "outside your comfortzone"
One thing I was thinking was, "5$!? I lose picks all the time, why spend 5$ to play with it for one day until I lose it?" Knock on wood, but I haven't lost one yet, something about a 5$ pick makes you remember to put it away after your done.
The material and the bevels do make a huge difference and we'll worth the price difference. Pinch harmonics are easier and attack on the sting is much greater with unfinished bevels, they are becoming my "go to " for metal/ heavy stuff.
The 4mm smooth is fantastic for acoustic and jazz. So far every shape and size I've tried has its special spot and style it excells at.
Honestly I could talk all day about these, cause they were the most overlooked piece of equipment I had, I am amazed on how much it a difference they can make.
I love this pick so much! Instantly bonded with it... It actually changes the way I play. I feel more confident going for picking sequences because you know the pick will always hit its' mark. They never slip, lol incredible and make my strings sound more articulate. Been playing for over 20 years, can't believe I just discovered these.
I got the Tripp because of the three different tips that provide versatility, and I got the XL size because I prefer a larger gripping surface that's more comfortable as well as more secure. The Tripp delivered on all fronts. In fact, I might get a 6mm version next time.
Great products. I personally love the Classic Big Mini Unpolished in a 2, the Axis and Axis Mini Unpolished in a 2 & 3, and the Tripp and Tripp Mini Unpolished in a 2 & 3. Thanks!
