Like Greg Hernandez, I don't have large fingers and the large size is barely large enough to get onto my fingers. After 30 seconds I've got to remove them. I'll probably boil some water to see if I can soften the plastic and reshape them for a better fit.
The picks I received mail order did not look like the ones pictured. Though they are white and not black like the image on the description, there is no logo and they appear to be a different texture. And as for being large, I do not have huge fingers but they fit so snug I feel like I might lose sensation in my right hand. For the price, they should be less of a mystery item.
I play classical guitar but I'm not able to grow my nails out to the desired length because I have to use a keyboard all day for work and long fingernails make it difficult to type. Plus, even when I could grow my nails out I would always break one or two of them which is not ideal for playing classical guitar. I have been using 4 Alaska Finger Picks but wanted to try the D'Andrea Finger Picks to see if they are any better. THEY ARE NOT! The D'Andrea Finger Picks fit over the top of your fingernail so they do not feel natural like the Alaska picks do. They tend to move around too much due to the heavy strings of a classical guitar and get cought on the strings due to the angle of the pick. If you play classical guitar and are not able to grow your fingernails out to full length, I recommend getting the plastic "Alaska Pik" guitar picks since they can easily be clipped and filed to your desired fingernail length to produce a great tone, they have a slot on the front of them so the front of the pick fits under your trimmed fingernail (which gives you a better feel for picking), they slide off the string like a natural fingernail and they do not move around on your finger when you're playing like the D'Andrea picks do.
I really like these finger picks. I play clawhammer banjo and my nails are not optimal so I tried these picks. Put them in hot water and they become quite pliable. Shape them like you want, cool them off and you can wear them comfortably for as long as you need them. They're shaped like a regular fingernail and play really well.
