Comments about Ernie Ball Thumb Picks:

I got this pick because I wanted to be able to play by tapping and going right back into strumming without having to worry about finding something to do with my pick. I also figured it would allow me to incorporate a bit of finger-picking for string skipping even though I play electric guitar and I play it with distortion. I am a 6'5 guy with hands that are large even for my size so I figured I would need a large size pick. They were out of sale at the time, and I am glad they were, because even the medium picks were too large. The pick stuck out way too far to be functional and any up-strokes with it would pull it away from my thumb, then making it snap back after it came off of the string and constantly shifting where the tip of the pick is. I never tried a small or large size, but hopefully the size describes how much of the pick sticks out and not how large the thumb space is - if all sizes stick out this much, I am afraid that all of them are basically unplayable. I would also appreciate if these picks were made out of a harder plastic so it doesn't get dragged as far on up-strokes and resists shifting a bit more. Even if someone wanted to play with a softer pick, the thumb mount should still be made of a harder plastic because in its current form it just doesn't work for precise play. Lastly, the colors were also a little silly. Besides black, pretty much everything else is candy colors. Selling these in packs of 1 color would not cost the company any money and it would certainly make their customers' experience better. I would also like to see transparent plastic as a color option, as it would make the pick a bit more invisible for anyone who is trying to make themselves look like they do not need the aid of specialty picks to pull of their techniques.

I'm addicted to these things . . .

By Kirk Smith

from Albuquerque, NM

Comments about Ernie Ball Thumb Picks:

It started when I decided I was a solo finger-style picker and found out my thumb wouldn't bend backward like some people's do. I tried a lot of different thumb picks. Most would grip my thumb so hard that the end began to turn blue. Others caught on the strings. I've since learned that I am not a solo finger-style picker, but now I can't play with anything else. They're not perfect; they're actually too pointy out of the box, but they can be rounded with fingernail clippers and a file into the perfect shape, which is that of a Fender jazz pick but one that doesn't fall on the floor when you let go of it for a minute. I mostly flat pick with them, but I can also pinch off staccato chords, even five-fingered ones, that are a great alternative to strummed chords. Maybe someday they'll make a signature model for me with a rounder point, but these are still the only really useful thumb picks I've found.

Good Picks.

By Jessica Piper

from Brockport, NY

Comments about Ernie Ball Thumb Picks:

I'm pretty upset that the colors are random. My favorite color is black, and my least favorite is yellow, so of course more of the picks I got were yellow... But they work great and stay well on your thumb. I'm a teenage girl, and size small works perfect for me. I wouldn't go large unless you have huge man hands.

My favorite Pick

By Scott

from Virginia Beach, Virginia

Comments about Ernie Ball Thumb Picks:

I found this hoping it would work better for me than a regular pick, AND IT DOES! it works great and last long. as a regard to its sizes, i have smaller hands and the large was a pretty good fit. I would only use mediums if you are a girl, or a child, most men should buy the large. And even if you get your size isn't right, its all good! because they are inexpensive! my only issue with them is that as thick as they are, the tip eventually wears down after playing for awhile. That really affects me because i expect it to be a certain length and find myself missing strings from time to time. But the pack comes with several, so it takes awhile, but you will find yourself buying more, depending on how much you play. But other than that, this would have to be my favorite pick

Best Thumbpcik ever made!

By Solomaster21

from El Paso, Tx

Comments about Ernie Ball Thumb Picks:

I am so glad that I own the Ernie Ball thumbpick because it is simply the best thumbpick ever made. If you don't have one I recomend you get one. Even if you use a regular pick, you should atleast try a thumbpick because it adds such a wider variety of playing styles to your guitar playing. The reason I like the Ernie Ball thumbpicks are because the picks have not too short, but not too long tips and it is not such a thick pick. Therefore, the picks are essential for fast picking styles. I recomend this pick to any guitarist! Ernie Ball is always a great buy.
