Description

Our company owner Steve 'Eagle' Noon, first discovered and started importing The 'aLasKa Pik' from the USA over a decade ago. Since that date, we have introduced the unique  'Over the finger, under the nail' pick to hundreds of our customers. If you fancy trying them, we have tried below, to make it easy here for you to choose the correct sized set. Please read on, for user and 'manicure' instructions.

Easy guide sizing: The PLASTIC AlasKa Piks come in four sizes, small, medium, large and extra large

  • If you have average size hands, choose medium size for your fingers and large for your thumb
  • If you have large size hands, choose large for your fingers and extra large for your thumb
  • If you have small hands, choose small for your fingers and medium for your thumb

 

Please Note: if you order the wrong size, just send them back with a note to explain your problem and we shall exchange them for you. It will only cost you the postage to do this.

Please choose size from the options list ...aLasKa Piks are priced individually. (The picture shows a 'set' of plastic picks being used
 

Here are the user and manicure instructions writen by the makers. Please also see the 'Red' aLaska PiK photopraph on this page:-

1. aLasKa Pik's TM. plastic  can be manicured to a preferred length:( Plastic) use nail clippers. To manicure ...Place pick securely ''over the finger, under the nail'' decide the length desired , then clip and file. 'For a side of the fingernail attack, remove plastic at indicator #1 in the photograph

2. To match the curvature of the user's flesh under the nail area, file on the backside of the picking surface (indicator #2 in the photograph) This adds security. This should be done before changing length.

3. To un-stiffen pick (plastic) remove all or part of the pressure band (indicator #3). For added comfort file smooth all uncomfortable edges.

4. Some fingernails may need to be manicured for best fit, especially the outer edges.

5. For the aLasKa PiK to work, you need to have a short length of natural nail. When you manicure your 'broken' nails, remove as little natural nail as possible when damage occurs

Have been using these for years for autoharp. They are quite delicate but last a surprisingly long time.

I use these on my kona-style lap slide guitar, as I was never satisfied with the finger picks that cover the tips and wanted something to go over the tops of my fingers so I could 'feel' the strings more but still get a clear and defined picked sound. These fit the bill perfectly! I'm still getting used to pick playing, but they really sound great. What I really like about them is how they are so easy to customise the fit to get them just right. If you find the written instructions a little confusing, there are even video tutorials (if you look for them) of people filing them to different shapes for different sounds etc. All in all, a great set of picks.
