    All of us here have used at least a few products made by Dunlop owned companies. RIP Sir.

    Didn't care for the picks, but the Dunlop capo I have is superb. He did a lot for guitarists.

    Thanks, I hadn’t heard the news.

    I use both regular Dunlop picks and the Ultex. Current Dunlop/MXR pedals in use are a Dunlop JH-1 wah, Super Badass Variac Fuzz, and an Echoplex.

    Thank you Jim for building reliable and great products for years of enjoyment. It’s no doubt that your legacy will live on.

    He obviously did a lot of things right during his lifetime.
    A true industry champion has left the building.
    RIP, sir.

    Yeah, hated to hear this. I've carried at least one Dunlop pick in my pocket everyday since I began playing.

    Among other things, Mr Dunlop's company helped the wah pedal to survive... :cool:

    A+!

    I've got Cry Babys, MXR and Dunlop pedals (lots). I could not sound the way I like to without some of his effects. RIP Sir, thanks for all your contributions!
