I have played guitar for nearly 50 years. When my grandpa and uncles taught me, they all used plastic thumb and finger picks. You could buy them anywhere. All shapes, sizes, and colors. I love the style and the sound, Now, they are a thing of the past. They are impossible to find. I was so glad musician's friend has these. I ordered 3 dozen because I feel they will soon be discontinued. At every show I play people ask how I get my wonderful warm tone. It is in these picks. It will soon be a lost art form. If you want your blues to sound like the masters of early blues, remember, It's in these picks. Buy a bunch before they are gone forever.

The plastic and basic shape is workable. A decent fingerpick can be made from these, one that will be comfortable and useful. I have made three so far from the package.

But it took considerable effort. As delivered none of the picks were playable at all. The strike tongue from the finger grip is flat along all axes and too long, the grip too tight as well as bent back from the strike tongue instead of forward (the tongue is actually bent slightly away from the finger, as delivered).

To get these from their delivered conformation to something like the old Herco #60 Mediums (the ideal shape for most of us) took me about 45 minutes with the first one, down to 30 now counting polishing. The tongue has to be shortened, a long axis belly bent into the tongue, and the now u-shaped tongue bent from the grip to fit the finger and align the strike point with the finger bone or nail (prefer the bone, myself). Then the grip has to be rewidened from the base of each arm without re-flattening the tongue transition. It's not all that simple, actually, even when you know exactly what you want - this kind of thing would be much easier under factory conditions in the original manufacture.

They are also a tad thicker and softer than I would prefer (a bit of loss in feel and gain in drag/noise), but the extra malleability is necessary and the comfort of the material a definite plus. I haven't tried a general thinning and polishing step on the tongue - that's next.

If the above made sense to you, and you know what you are getting into, then they are worth trying - the material is quite comfy but still solid in the strike, the size is about right for fitting most people, the basic shape is good, the price is right, the delivery is expeditious. I would not recommend buying these as your first plastic fingerpick and expecting to be able to play music with them as delivered.

      Comments about D'Andrea Finger Guitar Picks One Dozen:

      Boil half a cup or so of water in the microwave. Drop the pick in the hot water and leave it there for 3-5 seconds. Lift it out with a fork. Wait a few seconds and then form it to your finger and/or bend the tip to your desired angle. You can do this repeatedly until you achieve the desired fit and pick angle. I've been doing this for 40 years with a variety of plastic picks. It is EASY and effective!

        • Acoustic Guitar Picks

        Comments about D'Andrea Finger Guitar Picks One Dozen:

        I tried these picks because my metal National picks were putting dents in the top of my new Taylor 12 string. I'm using the large shell style.

        The only thing I can say for the guy who gave 1 star because "all plastic fingerpicks are worthless" is that is not true! Metal picks might be great for banjo and resonators, but this is a stark improvement in tone for an acoustic guitar.

        For size reference, my fingers are about 3/4" wide and 1/2" tall, and National large thumbpicks fit my thumb perfect. The sizes are inconsistent from pick to pick but that is a blessing in disguise because in a dozen you will find some that fit great. Some were too small for my fingers, but most fit just right.

        They sound great. The metal picks never sounded right on a steel string acoustic, and these felt and sounded very natural. I highly recommend trying these picks. I will be using them for a long time.

            As prior reviewers have said, these picks are too tight. I bought them for clawhammer banjo and after a couple of minutes of playing the tip of my right index finger was a dusky blue/gray color. Tried the hot water trick suggested by another reviewer (thanks BTW) - 3 seconds in boiling water and the picks became flexible enough to re-shape them. Tried again, finger still turned blue. I'll keep trying to reshape a few of them since I already have them but will not buy them again.

                    Why they don't have medium sizes is crazy. I have average (medium) size fingers. I just wanted a couple just to try but you can't even get that. They of course only have it in a dozen. I read reviews that said these would fit hands that weren't too big, they were not even close. These picks are way too big. I can slide them back far enough on my finger that the picking part isn't even over the tip of my finger. The pick itself it pretty wide at a 1/2 inch. Oh and I know some folks like designs and names on there products. These are a plain white color with slight rubber feeling finish. And there is no name discernment on the product, it is blank.

                      I have been practicing with these and they are a bit large. However, they do stay in place. I hope they'll be suitable when I perform. They seem to be of good quality, however. Guess I'll keep them. I use them to play my autoharp.

                        I hope to ween myself off of using a standard pick and use these for the traditional style of fingerpicking my bass. I recently started playing bass for a working band after playing guitar for 43 years, I still play it too, but now I'm earning money on the bass.
                        Smooth nylon material make these picks not have that annoying ping you get from fingernail picking. I am actually using these reversed (with the pick surface at my fingertip) to play the bass. Gives me the sound of a picked string with the fingertip picking style.
                        Smooth texture, hard enough to warrant durability
                        great price!

                        I wont give them a 10 on the odd chance there might be something otherworldly out there that I might like more. Can't imagine, though - I really love these picks. These are not meant for banjo. You don't play banjo with plastic picks, nor do most folks play Dobro (lap style resonator) with plastic picks - you use metal. For acoustic slide work with fingerpicks and for straight ahead fingerpicking on an acoustic guitar - these rule as far as I am concerned. Smooth feel, super comfortable, nice tone.
                        Very comfortable pick. Material feels less pinchy on fingertip than the normal plastic fingerpick. Smooth attack when playing my round neck resonator and acoustic guitar both. Really have a different feel than your normal fingerpick, I like the size and shape a lot - seems to make picking easier.
                        Seem to be fine quality, one of the oldest pick making companies in the world. Since I bought a dozen, I should be good to go for a decade or so.
                        Great price, much better value than some of the boutique picks I have purchased.

                        All plastic fingerpicks are worthless in my opinion. I'm a banjo player and this message is for every musician: D'Andrea is a good brand, just buy metal. Plastic fingerpicks will force you finger to slip off the strings.

                          Just learning my first string instrument, and being left handed, I chose what I think is an ambidextrous instrument. I have metal and plastic finger picks. I like the fit and look of both types, listening to see how they each treat the story behind the song before I say one is better than another.

                            These must be shaped to individual fingers by heating in very hot water and adjusting to your own fingers.

                              I bought the large and they do fit. Of course with any plastic finger pick you should soak them in hot water to get them softer so they mold to your fingers but these in large were close from the start which was great. They are well made without cheap edges. Says made in USA too. Good fit and a great price on MF.

                              They work well once you heat them and make them wider.

                                      These are good plastic finger picks if you are looking for a sound softer than metal picks. They have a thinner blade than most other plastic picks I have seen which makes it easier to get use to. You need to place them in hot water for a minute or so then bend then to fit your fingers.
