OVERVIEW

A coiled plectrum that slides on with comfort and ease in many gauges and thicknesses.

Sliding all over the planet this year is the SnakePick coming in 4 different coil sizes: 13mm,15mm,17mm and 19mm. The SnakePick is available in three different gauge sizes: soft, medium and hard. White is Soft, Red is Medium, and Blue is hard.

Unlike the vast majority of existing plectrum styles, the SnakePick will never drop out of the player's fingers, it will never rotate in the player's fingers (given the sizing is correct) and it allows normal playing style with comfort and dexterity. The SnakePick coils around the player's finger at an outward taper. The necessary tension is created by the coil sizes in relation to the finger. The SnakePick is available in four different finger sizes, with three different pick densities.

In the most common usage of the SnakePick, it is worn on the index finger and positioned optimally facing the thumb.

The SnakePick allows you to play various styles. Unlike finger picks, you can strum and pick or use your pick-free fingers to pluck strings. The possibilities of how you play have multiplied greatly. You can turn the SnakePick to different angles for various tones, just like a standard pick. The SnakePick Three Pack consists of three picks of the same size and gauge or in one of each gauge.

Various colors and sizes available. Please see drop down menu to choose.

Sizing
The measurement is based on the diameter of the first knuckle on the index finger. As a general rule though;

13mm will fit children with ages up to about 8.
15mm will fit adolescents and many women.
17mm will fit older teens, many men and women.
19mm will fit larger men and women.
The soft gauges do have more flexibility in the coils so if you're still unsure, get a mixed pack of your best guess. The soft (white) gauges will comfortably stretch on!

FEATURES
  • Four different coil sizes
  • Three different gauge sizes
  • Assorted three-packs available

I know some may be sceptical about this product, but it realy does work quite well. As bruceb points out in his negative review below, the pick tip IS parallel to the index finger rather than perpendicular to it which is the correct way to hold a regular pick. HOWEVER, holding a pick correctly and mastering picking technique can be difficult and can take a long while. Some just never do get the hang of it.

I have been playing guitar since 1967. In 1972, I almost lost my right arm from the elbow down. But, they slapped in a steel plate and some screws and put it back together as best they could. Long story short, I have always had to hold a pick exactly how this Snake Pick works; with the index finger pointed at the strings. I simply cannot hold a pick the way your supposed to - my elbow would be pointing at the audiance... But, the way I have to hold a regular pick doesn't give me a very good grip and thus - I had poor pick control.

I've been using a Snake Pick for about 3 weeks now, and can tell you that my picking technique has improved considerably. And yes, in that short of a time.

This pick makes pick control easy. The pick stays stable on your index finger and you control attack (stiffnes-floppiness) by small movements of your thumb closer or further away from the pick tip - the pick does not slip or move. Your thumb can also very the angle of the pick against the strings just as easily by putting slight pressure on the side of the pick (which bends it a little).

The trick is to put the pick on in exactly the same place every time you put it on - not hard to do... Just find the ideal spot for you and you can "feel" that it is in the right place from there on out.

Now, if you are already an advanced player that has learened proper pick control with a regular pick, you probably won't want to re-learn this, so only buy if your curious.

If, on the other hand, you are just learning or a person who has struggled with pick control and it has been setting you back - do your self a big favor and BUY THIS PICK!

Choosing gauges:

White (soft) - this is a good all around gauge for most. But, if you play a style that is switching back and forth between riffs and chords (Blues/Rock) you may find that the pick is not quite stiff enough for fast note riffing.

Red (medium) - probably the best choice for "lead players" (although you may get along just fine with the soft gauge).

Blue (heavy) I wouldn't advise this for those doing full chord strumming. It will come off more as a "rake" than a strum. Definately the choice for bass players.

Choosing the sizes:

I bought a 3 pack of whites and a 3 pack of blues (for bass). At the time I bought them they didn't have the 17mm size (measured my finger dia. at the first joint) for those gauges, so I got the 15mm sizes for both.

For the white ones, this works out great, a snug fit but not uncomortable in the least because of the softnes of the plastic.

The blue ones were unbearably tight and uncomfotable and the plastic much less flexible. I had to put them on a socket wrench and dip in boiling water for 1 min. which worked to expand them to the right size.

So, my advise would be that unless you have really slim or thick fingers, the 15mm size in white will work for the vast majority of people.

For the red ones (which I am ordering next), I would measure your index finger's dia. at the 1st joint and get that size.

For the blue ones, I would measure your index finger's dia. at the 2nd joint and get that size.

The Snake Pick is an interesting idea, but it has a crucial design flaw. The pick tip is parallel to the index finger rather than perpendicular, which goes against basic picking technique. I had to put my wrist in an awkward bend just to hit a few notes. Had the inventor changed the pick angle by 90 degrees, it could be a different story. Still, it's a good novelty pick.

    For the white ones, this works out great, a snug fit but not uncomortable in the least because of the softnes of the plastic.

    The blue ones were unbearably tight and uncomfotable and the plastic much less flexible. I had to put them on a socket wrench and dip in boiling water for 1 min. which worked to expand them to the right size.

    So, my advise would be that unless you have really slim or thick fingers, the 15mm size in white will work for the vast majority of people.

    For the red ones (which I am ordering next), I would measure your index finger's dia. at the 1st joint and get that size.

    For the blue ones, I would measure your index finger's dia. at the 2nd joint and get that size.

    Comments about SnakePick 3-Pack:

    The Snake Pick is an interesting idea, but it has a crucial design flaw. The pick tip is parallel to the index finger rather than perpendicular, which goes against basic picking technique. I had to put my wrist in an awkward bend just to hit a few notes. Had the inventor changed the pick angle by 90 degrees, it could be a different story. Still, it's a good novelty pick.

    Comments about SnakePick 3-Pack:

    I'm just getting used to the SnakePick so right now strumming is the easiest for me. I can no longer hold a regular pick because I have diminished feeling in my right hand. This has been a Godsend to me. To be able to hold a pick in my hand without it falling on to the floor. The more I use it, the more I will be able to do with it. It's just a matter of constantly playing with the SnakePick and getting used to it. I Love It!!

        I have been playing for 50 years, and never could use a pick. I couldn't keep it where I needed it to be. I tried these picks, and now I don't like playing without one. A real GOOD invention!!! Stays put and no fighting to keep the pick at the right angle, or between the finger and thumb. No more wearing out my fingernail either. I love it!!!

            This is a great idea that someone should have come up with a long time ago (maybe they did and I missed it?).

            I've always been prone to pick dropping, and these picks allow me to strum and pick with a loose grip that gives me a better feel, without worrying about dropping the pick. It didn't take me long at all to find a grip that works for me, and so far I'm loving these picks!

            I bought the three-pack of assorted "hardnesses," and while the blue is clearly the most stiff, the red and white seem pretty similar (the white is supposed to be the most flexible).

            I'm wondering if these will be in short supply at times, since they're made in Australia (for example, right now, only the whites are available), but these are recommended if like me, you're a pick dropper.

              Retired Musician.

              Totally disagree with an earlier reviewer. I've played guitar for over 50 years, and have never felt comfortable with a flat pick. The twisting, or popping out of your hand, or getting wet from sweat and sliding all over the place. Flat picks left a lot to be desired.

              I stumbled onto the Snake Pick a couple months ago. Very difficult to obtain because there were no USA sellers at the time, and getting them from Australia was costly. But after a couple of minutes, I knew immediately that this is what I had been hoping for, for many years. The red snakes are about like a medium flat pick, but the white snakes are about a medium light and are my favorites. I will never use anything, ever again, after using the white snakes. My confidence level zoomed,and at age 65, I'm learning new licks!

              These are going to revolutionize guitar picking!

                      I got the 3 sized sample pack on a whim, when that came I tried to use each one but couldn't. They're at the wrong angle to strum the string and it forces you to hold your finger at a CrAzY angle !? Plus they're made out of a hard cheap plastic and just feel awful, I'd give mine away to friends but I like my friends. Don't waste your time, stick with your good old traditional pick

                      Comments about SnakePick 3-Pack:

                      My reason for purchasing the snake pick is due to a normal pick sliding out of my fingers while playing, however with a standard pic you can adjust the angle depending on your wrist, & finger position etc,to strum the strings, with this one you cannot and it feels too rigid, although it truly does not slip out of your fingers, it does not have much flex and is too stiff so that it hits the strings really hard blasting the sound. when trying to ease off and play softer it doesn't sound clean.

                      After having Carpel Tunnel surgery, I was unable to hold a regular flat pick. Then I read about the Snake Pick, on Musician's Friend's website. I ordered a couple of packs, and they were and are absolutely an answer to prayer! I now have no worries about dropping my pick, and I can pick the guitar as well as I ever did, with a flat pick. I love the Snake Pick! Thank you Musician's Friend!! I will keep buying these picks!

                          I play finger-style acoustic guitar. There are a few sounds I just can't make in that way; I need to use a flat pick. I have tried to use a pick but it never feels comfortable; it shifts position in my hand. The Snake Pick allows me to concentrate on playing rather than on holding the pick. Although the Snake Pick keeps the pick in the right general position, you can still tweak while playing. I can't think of a better design concept, and I am glad that I found them and that Musician's Friend stocks them.

                                    I have been playing for 50 years, and never could use a pick. I couldn't keep it where I needed it to be. I tried these picks, and now I don't like playing without one. A real GOOD invention!!! Stays put and no fighting to keep the pick at the right angle, or between the finger and thumb. No more wearing out my fingernail either. I love it!!!
