From ass-kicking Metallica epics like "Motor Breath" to new thrashers 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 Pick 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."
