    Whenever I play traditional lead, any brand of flat-pick tends to squirrel around between my thumb and first finger, especially on triplets and fast runs. No more! These Clayton thumb-picks hang-on. They are not too heavy or too light and have improved my lead-work tremendously. I will definitely buy more.

    Coming from someone who went from national thumb picks to Dunlops to these and now forever back to dunlops believe me when I say these are paper thin! They fit like a glove but the sound you get is so wimpy. I found out about them from one of my favorite artists, Ulli Boegershausen, and I have no idea how he plays with them, but they are not for me. Also playing with these will prevent you from doing some advanced techniques like a thumb pick "up stroke" frequently used by Antoine Dufour. Mainly these are not for me, but if you are looking for a thin thumb pick, these are for you.

      Comments about Ernie Ball Thumb Picks:

      I've been having a problem dropping picks while playing. The only thing I've had to adjust with these is the angle that I hold my hand if I want to use it like a regular pick. but great when using it to just play with your thumb

      Comments about Ernie Ball Thumb Picks:

      I am use to the National Picks and these are just to thin for my liking, also they are a bit long, and I believe I should've gotten the ex large size they just don't feel secure on my thumb. They are made Well and my advise is try them, It might be what you are looking for, But I'm going to stick with the National's or the Dunlap's.

        • Pick Length Too Long

        Best Uses

          Comments about Ernie Ball Thumb Picks:

          The picks came in a variety of pick length. Several of them were way to long for my use. I have medium sized thumb and they were a good fit. Would probably be a good fit for any size thumb. However, the smaller the thumb, the longer the pick length. They seem to be well made. I would not purchase again because half of them were just too long for my preference.

          Comments about Ernie Ball Thumb Picks:

          I wanted to try these again but the large were sold out. It had been a while since I purchased them and sure enough they were too small when I ordered the mediums. Good product but for the average adult definitely get the large. They also don't stay in place but not sure why that is.

            These thumb picks work better than most for me however I am a female guitar player so the 'medium' playability and size fit my thumb very well. I can see that some one with large fingers or more aggressive playing style would have issues.

              pick is thick enough to stay on good but flexible enough not to squeeze thumb until it throbs like some I've tried in the past.

                    I ordered the large size thumb picks, but, they were not large enough, so they aren't very usable for me.If you have normal size thumbs , they should be OK.
