Looking at the rest, I've found that National is the best.
I've played for 45 years and for most of that time I've used a flat pick or simply fingerpicking with no pick at all. Using the thumb pick has given me the ability to tailor my playing to emphasize tone and volume. I've used the pick for a year now, and it has become standard equipment. I use it on my six string, 12 string and my electric. Mastering a thumb pick gives a whole new dimension to your music. With technique you can strum with these picks. I like the suggestion made about putting it in boiling water to mold it to your thumb as I've found out of the package, they do snag a string at times.
The only thing that prevents me from going to a 10 is that the loop end of the pick should curl in more to prevent accidentally catching a string.
The only reason I'm buying more than one is not due to quality, but simply if I lose it.

      Best Uses

        Comments about National Picks Plastic Thumb Pick 1 Dozen:

        I add a curl to the tip that wraps around the thumb. Use needle-nose pliers (never touch the picking surface), a short round glass and a plastic coffee mug. In the mug bring water to a vigorous boil in a microwave. Immediately fill the glass to the rim. Doing one at a time, push down the curled part into the water leaving the flat part outside the glass. Let it set for 5 seconds. Do not heat the part where the curl starts from the flat surface. As quickly as you can, pull the pick out and use the pliers to add more curl just to the wrap-around tip. Hold for just a few seconds and let go. DONE. Do the same to about 10 at a time before microwave reheating and replacing the water in the glass.

          Comments about National Picks Plastic Thumb Pick 1 Dozen:

          I frequently like to hit a bass note and play the rest of the cord finger style. This pick lends itself well to this playing style. It is also a surprisingly good strumming and precision pick. It takes a bit of getting used to, but it is a comfortable pick.

          Comments about National Picks Plastic Thumb Pick 1 Dozen:

          I have used National thumb picks for quite a few years, but only ever bought 1-2 at a time. This time I though that I'd buy a whole dozen to save me the trouble of re-ordering so often. After opening the bag, I was surprised to see how inconsistent the shapes where from pick to pick. No two picks where shaped the same. I had to reshape almost every pick in the bag so that they were all the same. Not tough to do - warm needle nose pliers in a pot of boiling water will do this trick. It just a step that I didn't want to mess with on brand new picks.

                Pricey, but they do last a long time, so worth it!

                      National are my standard thumb picks for guitar. I live in a relatively rural area where they are difficult to find, so, when I find them, I buy them in quantity . Buying a dozen at a time at a competitive unit price and getting free shipping to boot, made it a "good fit" for my needs.
