Black Mountain Thumb Pick - Jazz Tipped Extra Tight Spring


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. This pick has a more pointed tip favoured by Jazz musicians. Fitted with an extra tight spring for more grip.

Extra tight sprin suits my small thumb. Just a step up from the lightest thumb pick, which for me is a step forward.

I would go as far as to say they have been a game changer for me. I wish they had made them 30 years ago

I like these sprung thumb picks. I need to practice some more but it looks like I will be doing more finger picking in future.
Many of them are way to thick for me, but these seem just right.

Feels more secure than the version with a lighter spring; an excellent product.
