This large size pick is slightly bigger compared to large sized picks from other brands which is good. My thumb isnt too big, but the picks from other brands were still too tight. This is a good size.

I am pretty new to the Scruggs style of banjo, but have been using some picks that came with my banjo and I wore them down, so i needed some new ones and I decided to try these. They fit nicely and play ok, but the top curves over so much and is a little too fat. It catches sometimes on the strings during downstrokes and once it is stuck, it is really stuck. It will ruin your roll for sure! I talked to my guitar teacher and he said that this is a common problem with thumb picks, but i never had this problem with my old picks... beware.

    Comments about National Picks Large White Thumb Picks 1-Dozen:

    Nationals are the best fitting pick out there. The part that wraps around my thumb doesn't snag the strings as it usually does with other brands. Length is perfect. I play guitar with my fingernails and a thumb pick. The sound is quite balanced between the pick and my nails. Again, I will never use any other brand.

    Comments about National Picks Large White Thumb Picks 1-Dozen:

    I think it would be nice if they have a thin/flexable x-large .
    Nothing new here it's just a white thumb pick, a little on the small size because the large was tight. Picks nice and strumming down good but forget strumming up it's to stiff for that.
    I won't wear them out.

    Sweet pick!

    By John Kilroy

    Comments about National Picks Large White Thumb Picks 1-Dozen:

    I have nothing bad to say about this pick. I thought to myself one day that I should play with a thumb pick, because I was tired of my flat picks falling out of my hands. So my dad picked some up from our local store and I have never seen a flat pick that was made this good! I only have one problem with this the price is just a little to high in my opinion. Other than that no complaints!

                I used these thumb picks for a while and I can tell you, you will go through them. Not because you're losing them but because they wont fit on your thumb anymore as the plastic bends. They might not fall off your thumb, but they will hinder your playing.

                I recommend using dunlop thumb picks, best I have found so far.

                    These thumb picks are the only ones I can buy that fit without changing the overall shape to fit my thumb. Just the correct thickness for fingerstyle playing, and articulate easily. Excellent tonal characte.

                          I've tried many other thumb picks, but this one fits perfectly with no fussing around with heating and bending. The playability is great -- the tip is just right for me for guitar, banjo, and dobro. I bought a couple to try out. Then bought a dozen. Then bought two dozen so I would have plenty for various instruments. I used an Earl Scruggs trick and scratched grooves on the inside so they stay on the thumb better.

                            Have used the for a long time; seem to give me the sound I like best. Downside is they don't last as long as some others; they crack from stress. I recommend sanding/filing down the tip.

                                    They're thumbpicks and they do come closer to fitting my large thumbs than Dunlops... but they break quite a bit more frequently than other brands I've played. If you play a few hours a day you might break a few of these a week. They seem pretty brittle. Could just be the batch I got. I'll order another dozen just because they don't hurt to wear and there aren't many other choices out there.

                                      I have tried numerous thumb picks, and National is the best by far, for the price. These picks fit comfortably, do not slip, an provide a nice "boom chuck" sound on the base strings.
                                      Musician's Friend, as usual, shipped quickly; and the product was exactly as described.

                                        I make my own picks using the heavy thumb wrap from a heavy pick like these and the blade from Ernie Ball lights. Stay on my thumb but have the action of a light pick.

                                          You need a lot of these. Heavy use results in looseness/breakage. If you are going to use these keep a bag full handy and continually rotate to prevent fatigue.
