Over fifty years of playing acoustic and electric guitars with thumbnails I've tried them all. Used nationals for years, dobro and the Dunlop equivalent clear plastic, herco blue, and for the last ten years, golden gate pearloid. The nationals quality control turned to garbage years ago and hasn't come back, herco blue was like knocking with a Clorox bottle, the clear ones required a certain amount of filing to get the right striking angle and distance, and golden gate cost way to much. These ultex picks are the answer! Fit perfectly, they're durable but crisp, just the right angle, like the old nationals I still have one or two of, and the colour is real cool looking. The perfect thumbpick for a Mississippi delta blues player!

This pick has a hairline crease on the top side of the point just where the thumb loop almost touches it which I can actually see in the Ad picture. If you dig in to the strings deep it will snag or catch. If this crease gets smoothed out in the mold or however they're made I would buy a lifetime supply because other than this problem it it flexible without falling off and fits me well.

    Comments about Dunlop Ultex Medium Thumbpicks Gold (4-Pack):

    Although apparently well made and constructed, the extentiion tip is shorter than all of the previous thumb picks I have used in the past. It will take my getting some familiarity and feeling comfortable with it but I am hoping that will come with constant usage. The sound quality seems excellent as well as its durability. I will practice with it for quite some time before using it for a performance.

                Musical equipment is so personal that the only way I've found to narrow it down is trying it out. That said I e got a drawer full of bars, else's and in this case thumb and finger picks. The Golden Gate Ivroid have been my favorites but good luck finding them. I picked (no pun intended) these up and have played four gigs with them and am very pleased. Like the Ivroid they have a sharp attack but you still feel the connection with the instrument!

                On a purely superficial level the gold is knew Kool!

                  i been wanting to switch to a thumb pick for a few months,this one is a bit too thick, but does the job.
                  overall my playstyle changed for the better, going to try some thinner ones

                        Ultex has been a favorite of mine for flatpicking. Glad it's now available for fingerpicking, as well.
                        My guitar has never sounded better than when using these thumbpicks.

                            I like finger picking but never used a thumb-pick. I ordered both the Large and Medium size. Both sizes fit pretty much the same, the Medium just a little tighter. The main difference is the Large size has about 1/2 inch long pick and the Medium has 3/8 inch long pick. I prefer the Medium since I already been finger picking for years without a thumb-pick. I'm guessing the Small size has even a little tighter fit with about 1/4 inch long pick. I'll order a pack and find out.
