I like the soft sound of these picks. I have a big thumb and these are about the only ones I can buy and use

Comfortable to wear, gives a more mellow sound than steel thumb picks. Hard wearing. Sounds good with a standard acoustic or a resonator.

Good quality, but using metal instead of plastic does nothing for me. The pick itself is too narrow for my taste.

i have just purchased propik thumb picks and they are the best i have ever used in 20 years of playing the 5 string banjo. they would also be great for finger style guitarists. i have also bought an ozark open back 5 string banjo a few months ago and was very impressed with the volume ,tone and general quality of the banjo.

I play an Auto-harp and was seeking a good thumb pick. saw this one in your web-page and thought it might be good. is not bad but
practically speaking, it is good for a forward strum over the strings but the strength of the metal wrap-around the thumb was insufficient for a reverse strum.

I intend to use these for playing Dobro Guitar and have yet to really put them to use but I am sure they will do the job

I've yet to find a thumb pick I can live with and this was no exception. The pick being uncomfortable with a tendency to rotate or drop off. The sound produced was almost as harsh as the all metal version? Maybe with some mods I can live with it but if you've been pickin' for forty years with a thumb nail then adapting ain't going to be easy!

The 'Thumb' pick won't stay on my thumb but I've since been told that for Dobro playing I need a 'plastic' one!

The metal band is excellent - robust and adjustable. Don't like the size and shape of the pick so much, but will persevere and also try the ProPik Thumb Flat http://www.eaglemusicshop.com/mandolin-thumb-picks/Propik-Thumb-Flat.htm
next order. High hopes for this in the long run and may well give it five stars next time.

Amazing; well-made and a good fit with great consistency and a nice not-too-hard-not-too-soft picking sound without pinching my thumb at all. Great if you're not using fingerpicks, and useful for an acoustic lap steel.
