Rory Gallagher’s Herco Flex 75 Guitar Picks

Based on Rory’s description, the guitar picks that he used in the 90s were the grey (charcoal) Herco Flex 75s. These are quite popular among the “old-school” players, such as Jimmy Page, David Gilmour, and Gary Moore – just to name a few.

If you’re looking to get yourself a pack, this is the current version manufactured by Dunlop – Herco HE211P Flex 75 Nylon Flat Pick.

[I use] Charcoal Herco grey picks. I guess they’re called 75 or something.

I use Herco grey picks, which are a hard, heavy nylon type. I sometimes use the serrated grip for solo parts.
