Loc: Waialua, Hi
I use Dunlop picks, a slide, a wah and 2 MXR pedals, a micro amp and a blue box. I feel like almost everyone has a Dunlop product.

I use Jim Dunlop picks, and I have one of the Dunlop Volume pedals which I have somewhere in my climate controlled shed, but I haven't used in in a half dozen years or so. RIP Jim Dunlop.

I use Dunlop picks also. Wow, he sure touched many lives.
I rock; therefore, I am.

Dunlop Tortex and the the thick, dull black Jazz picks were my main picks for a long time; still have a bunch of them in nearly every Guitar case. For me, the big thing was when Dunlop revived MXR, a classic pedal line that clearly didn't deserve to go extinct. I still recommend the Micro Amp as an affordable first-in-line Boost/Buffer for almost any pedalboard.

Like Leo, Les, and a handful of others, he may be gone, but his sounds will be with us for a long time . . .
