    I've been using some of Jim Dunlop's products since I started playing roughly 25 years ago. Thanks for the numerous contributions to the world.

    Sad. I hope he had made his peace. I can only say thank you to Jim for his time here; I know he definitely made my life a lot easier...and many others', too. Definitely made his mark.

    I still remember how I abused my dad's classical guitar over 30 years ago, learning to play the Battery intro with a yellow Tortex pick. RIP.

    With exception of about a month I’ve had a Dunlop pick in my hand for almost 30 years

    Jim Dunlop is up there with the likes of Les Paul, Leo Fender, Jim Marshall, Seth Lover, Ernie Ball, and Larry DiMarzio (who's still alive but he helped develop the aftermarket pickup market). The guitar world wouldn't be the same without his accessories (it's very easy to find a guitarist who uses a Tortex or Jazz III pick) and his company reviving small pedal brands like Cry Baby, MXR, and Way Huge.

    Despite all the new fangled hyper tech "Booteek" picks out there, I just always stuck to Dunlop. Great bang for bucks and consistent, high quality products.
    RIP Jim

    Very sad news.

    A big and ubiquitous name in the guitar world.

    While he didn't invent it as such, he bought the CryBaby and kept it going. Mine's been going for over 25 years like a trooper!

    And Tortex picks are the winner for me (Jazz III).
