Picks

 


We like thumb picks that don't slide around when digging in.
We like picks that stay put though fingers might be cold or slippery with sweat.
We like picks that don't nip or turn digits blue.
Switch from guitar to banjo with the same gear... we like that too.
We especially like picks that impart true string notes, not pick noise.
We've tried dozens and dozens of picks.
We love these.

(The bad news: Recent doubling of supplier prices and increase in freight charges have forced us to follow on.
The good news: We now stock stainless steel fingerpicks for those with nickel allergies.)

Customising Fingerpicks

 

 

Bluegrass solos need to ring out.  That banjo needs bite!  If you’re not wearing fingerpicks now then try them—you’ll be amazed at the tonal difference they make.

Getting used to picks after using fingers feels like dancing in wellington boots.

Every hand is unique.  Every finger is different.

Here’s how to Custom Curve your fingerpicks for real bite and the best possible fit.

Thumb picks
Plastic or metal.  Your choice.  If metal, use the ones with the rolled ends.

Fingerpicks
Must be metal. They come in several weights.
