    I would definitely associate with the Dunlop USA. My favorite picks are tortex sharps, my favorite strings are Dunlop heavy cores 10-48, and I plan on getting a new crybaby soon.

    I have no complaints about that company.

    Yeah, I like to keep my gear within certain family limits as well - if I can help it. Dunlop is a good company it seems. Lucky you.

    I could get along just fine using nothing but Dunlop accessories. They're a good example of what most companies should strive for......make better products than everyone else at a price that the average guy can afford to pay. Smart company.

    Hiring Jorge Tripps was the best thing that ever happened to them, and I'm sure Jim Dunlop knows it.

    Ever since first using a Tortex, I've used nothing else.

    However, an endorsement really wouldn't do me any good, as I bought 150 blue and purple Tortex picks eight years ago, and I still have over half of them left. I am not a pick waster. I stop using them when they become pretty much round instead of triangular.

    I've never tried Dunlop strings, but I'm not a string waster either, so an endorsement probably wouldn't do me a ton of good. I change individual strings as they break, and I keep strings until the intonation is so far off that they sound like total crap. I think strings sound fine far after the point when most would throw them away. I actually prefer the sound and feel of old strings to fresh ones.

    As for bass strings? Ha! I started learning bass in 1988 on a fretless '77 Music Man that was my dad's. When I started playing in school band a few months later, he didn't want me taking his MM, so he let me use his beat-up Musicmaster Bass instead. At that point, because I had been playing flats on the Music Man, I put a set of flats on the Musicmaster. Those stayed on there until the low E broke during a gig in 2009. Bass strings don't even sound anywhere close to their best until they are at least a year old IMO.

    No but I have no problem with admitting that I would only enter into business associations that would net me the most gain.

    Making money isnt a bad thing, nor does it make one less of an artist. It is called the music business for a reason.

    I've been saying the same thing for a long time. Every pedal on my board is MXR, and I love their pics. I've only ever played the Zakk Wylde set of strings, which I didn't care for, but that might have been the gauge.

    I use their picks (Jazztones), Strings (Heavy Cores 12-54), and all my electronics are MXR. As Billy Gibbons put it, if you need something, look through the Dunlop catalogue. If you can't find it, look again because you will.
