Black Mountain Thumb Pick - Light Gauge


The Black Mountain Pick is built for musicians who enjoy playing with their fingers (fingerstyle) but also enjoy playing with a pick (flatpicking). Players love the Black Mountain Pick because it feels like a regular pick, but it also feels like a traditional thumb pick. One size fits all. Light gauge version.

Love this thumbpick. The one with the extra strong spring suits me. Probably will go for thicker pick when I’m more proficient.

I love the principle and precise location with this thumb pick. Hpowever the original model was too stiff, then I got a medium one. This one is too thin si in future I would go for the medium one. It gives me adequately smooth chords but good definition when playing runs on the bass strings.

An excellent thumb-pick/plectrum cross which is perfect for hybrid picking. I use fairly light gauge strings on both acoustics and electrics, so this light gauge one works well for me. The medium one is too thick & inflexible for me. I must admit, Black Mountain stuff is quite pricey but it is good quality.

Find this finger pick great if you strum with the side of your thumb. It allows you to free up the other fingers, notable the index.
Think this style is just great!!
