I enjoy playing Spanish Gypsy Guitar on my classicals. These picks work really well for me.
I have thumbs that measure 2 1/2" (65mm) in circumference. The mediums fit snug and stay on when things get fast and wild. For me and my style of playing the medium size was the correct size.
If you don't like the color, paint them. I took a white pick, sanded the logo off and covered it with silver glitter nail polish. A yellow one with gold glitter nail polish.
They now really have the "Gypsy Look". I even sprayed a few black.
I keep them in my hard shell case, my gig bag and a few around the studio.
I will purchase 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.

    I use these on my twelve-strings now converted to a six-string. It also would work well on a lap-steel.

        Comments about Ernie Ball Thumb Picks:

        Most thumb picks are thick and don't work well for strumming, I'd like to see these thinner yet.
        I have used them for practice and so far they are great!

                  Comments about Ernie Ball Thumb Picks:

                  While these are advertised as "medium," They are tight on my thumb, and I don't have a large thumb so I am very disappointed. Not worth returning but I'll avoid these next time.

                    I like the shape and look of these picks but find that they don't stand up to heavy usage. I play hard and soft Bluegrass; these picks turn on my thumb after a couple of riffs. Yes they are the correct size, they are just too thin and flimsy for hard licks. Inexpensive, but not worth it. Pay more; get more....

                        Out of the package these picks are durable and well made. The L size fit my thumb tightly. I am adult male with large hands. The thumb picks are
                        long, thick (0.037") and wide (about 1/2" wide and 1/2" long. I trim the sides with a hobby knife and sand the bottom with 200 grit, then 400, until I get 0.022"-0.025" at the tip. This makes the pick more flexible and fits my playing style much better.

                          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
