Good value for a dozen of this.
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.

    I prefer them over the Ernie Ball, Fender and generic picks. Long lasting and saves my thumb from a nasty callus.

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

        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.

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

                  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.
