This is the only bass pick I would ever ever use.

It's big, thick, fat and sharp and cheap. What more does anybody want in a bass pick? I've used the stubbies on acoustic, electric guitars and basses. On electric guitars, the attack was a bit too much, too thick, too strong, almost just like bashing the hell out of the guitar strings which most players already do with thinner picks so doing it with a thicker pick doesn't help.

On acoustic it sounds decent though I've found a better pick to use for acoustics (in another review)

Then I tried this on bass, I'm not a bass player but I play the bass if you know what I mean. Sometimes I use my fingers and sometimes I use a pick depending on what I'm playing and if I can't get the fingers to sound dynamically right, I use a pick to keep the dynamics consistent.

The attack of the stubby 3mm on a bass string seems to be perfect, it doesn't flop around like some thin nylon picks would nor does it strike TOO hard and flange the string about too much when struck properly. Not to mention the tip is quite sharp so you can still get the top end sound of the string to come out when you strike it, not just a massive blur of low end frequencies, which I like. But again, that doesn't suit everybody, depends on the context of the song etc.

However, as a pick, it's strikes the string well with a pleasing sound and it doesn't warp or break too quickly like some. Best off the shelf bass pick in my opinion.
