Cool new gear: Jim Dunlop Hetfield’s Black Fang picks
James Hetfield is one of the masters when it comes to heavy metal riffs. His right hand chops are second to none in tightness and intensity.
Hetfield, in collaboration with Jim Dunlop have created a new line of picks for the master himself with Hetfield’s Black Fang picks.
These ultex picks feature a sharp tip, and three different thicknesses, which should satisfy all metal-head guitar players. Here’s the run-down from Dunlop:
From ass-kicking Metallica epics like “Master of Puppets” to new monsters like “Cyanide”, riff master James Hetfield’s venomous style has inspired many. Preferring picks with a bright tone and biting attack, Hetfield looked to Dunlop for the perfect tool for his fierce downward picking style. Based on a vintage tortoise-shell pick, the Black Fang is made of tough, sturdy Ultex material with a defined tone and sharp attack. Its pointed and contoured tip gives you ultimate speed and control—perfect for players looking to unleash their tone clearer, faster, and with unrivaled precision. “It’s fast, bright, and strong because of its hard point and material,” says the man himself. “It gives you everything you need—just add venom.”
Available in .73, .94, and 1.14mm gauges
I for one cannot wait to unleash some awesome metal riffs with these bad boys.
