Overview

National Picks Silver Finger Picks are made in America from the best nickel silver available. These finger picks provide a smooth, comfortable, and fully adjustable fit, as well as a brilliant, vintage-American sound.

In 1930, the United States government issued a patent for this National Picks fingerpick, which became the fingerpick all others would copy. Proudly etched on the pick's face are the National logo, the original patent number, the U.S.A. make, and NP2 model number for easy identification.

These nickel silver fingerpicks are perfect for that bright, finger picking sound on an acoustic guitar or for plucky bite on a banjo.

After watching a few dozen videos of finger pickin' masters online, I was inspired... and bought three of these National Nickels and a thumb pick. First off, they're a cinch to fit and put on, one squeeze it all it takes. I had no trouble at all with 'em falling off. One little problem: the metal-on-metal action between the pick and strings creates scratches and screeches every once in a while. So far, with a few days of practice, it's become much less noticable.

I generally purchase such picks for Scruggs-style banjo picking. The best picks I've yet to find are also made by National, the NP2s. These "Nickel Silver" picks by National are lower in quality. They do not hold to shape very well and do not interact smoothly with the strings (I used nickel banjo strings). I also find these to be more irritating to my skin than others, although this could be a result of body chemistry, and probably varies from user to user. Overall, these picks are okay but not the best for banjo-picking. I've bent one of them into more of a right-angle to use on my middle finger in conjunction with a flat pick (like James Burton) while playing electric guitar. It works pretty well for that purpose.

I love these picks - they are incredibly brilliant on any guitar, giving songs that folk magic. They fit my fingers perfectly, and allow me to play banjo with ease. A great pick!

Best Uses

    Comments about National Picks Nickel Silver Finger Picks 4-Pack:

    Been using National for decades. Got a new set as a backup. These ones slip off every time now during intense play when pressure applied and perspiration builds up. Tossed them out and polished the old ones. Too bad. They had been a great product for a long time.

    Still working on them

    By DONALD

    from Bellingham, WA

    Comments about National Picks Nickel Silver Finger Picks 4-Pack:

    As an old fart with some swelling in the joints of my fingers, I have a bit of trouble getting these to fit just right. Once tweaked, they work well.
