I’ve used a number of picks now but keep coming back to this one … what makes it my favourite? so easy to use, stays firmly in place and gives a good sound. It’s going to take a lot to beat this little 🐝 bee but would be keen to see the likes of Fender do something similar with their style and quality picks 👍 …

Best thumb pick I’ve tried.

Too early to tell, but feels like a good alternative to traditional thumbpicks. The gauges don't really align with gauges of basic picks. The light felt more medium and medium felt like a hard pick.

Very nice.

I thought that this would be a bit of a gimmick, but it is actually really helpful.

I highly recommend!
