If you're like me, an old dog fingernail player needing a new trick, these Fred Kelly Freedom picks might be what you're looking for. You can achieve very similar tone and volume, and retain a lot of your technique in terms of how you attack the strings. There is also something to be said for consistency. With natural or applied fingernails, you are always adjusting to variable length and condition. Fingerpicks are a constant.

Two caveats:

I found they work better if you wrap some ¼" waterproof bandaging tape around them. Get it next to the bandaids at the store. This is not to adhere the pick to your finger. The pick deflects from the string and the gap in the bottom of the pick expands. They tend to wobble around too much, affecting tone and volume. The bandage tape fixes that pretty good and stays sticky, so it's easily repositionable.

And, don't expect a perfect result right out of the box. You gotta experiment, practice and get used to them. It was worth while for me. I hope you'll buy some, too. Otherwise, they'll stop making them and I'll have to find Plan C.

    Comments about Fred Kelly Picks Delrin Freedom Finger Guitar Picks:

    Second time I've purchased these. The first ones were stolen off the bandstand! I use the Alaska pics more, but these work when I need a "louder" sound. Some "cons" seen previously are not merited. As in any plastic manufacturing process and individual's preference, you need to customize this one. Using an Emery board nail filer, work off the rough edge that effect your cuticle area. The pics can be gently heated in hot water to fit any finger.

          Comments about Fred Kelly Picks Delrin Freedom Finger Guitar Picks:

          As others have said, product runs toward the small side. I have average size hands for a woman and ordered medium, which was a tad tight but ok. So if in doubt order up, especially for guys. The material is pretty stiff/thick, so it was not super easy to widen w/ hot water bath. I like to reshape the edge by my cuticle by refitting with hot water and mostly by judicious filing in order to get the pick in the spot where it won't dig and annoy my cuticle. I don't pick that much but do like this product to protect my 1st fingernail from wear from strumming.(I don't like fussing with salon nails on the right hand, nor do I like their look. I'm using this pick primarily on nylagut or fluorocarbon strings and it does give me more volume but I am still getting use to the brighter sound.

            Comments about Fred Kelly Picks Delrin Freedom Finger Guitar Picks:

            I find these picks to produce a more natural, fingernail type tone; something I prefer on acoustic guitar over metal fingerpicks that I still routinely use for dobro and pedal steel. But for guitar fingerpicking, I prefer having my fingertips exposed and plucking with my fingernail, and these picks come very close to that feel, provided you get them to fit right.

            And that's what's very tricky with this product. As others have said, they run small. I am a medium sized male and wound up getting both, medium and large sized picks for a better fit on individual fingers (large for index & middle, medium for ring). I had initially bought a medium set and they were too tight on my index and middle fingers. I tried to expand them by putting the picks in hot water but it didn't work out for me. However, I liked them enough to get another set in large, and now they're perfect. When they fit right they're comfortable and you get good control and tone. Despite the sizing issues, I gave the product 5 stars because I really do like the sound I get with them.

                  First off I gave this a high rating because these are the most functional finger picks I've ever tried. I prefer picking (hybrid) with my fingernails but I can never depend on them being available. These have a more natural sound and feel. It took me awhile to make them fit comfortably. I tried hot water but it didn't seem to work. Then I inserted a wooden dowel into the pick to spread it out some and then put it into my toaster oven at about 200 degrees for a few minutes. I'd pull it out and let it cool with the dowel still inserted. After a few tries I got them so they're pretty comfortable. Where it was cutting into my cuticle on the index finger I just filed out the offensive area. The best thing about these is being able to do a forward strum without the string catching. I believe these will be with me for a long time.

                    Just bought a "set" of three picks. Working on fitting them using the hot water method. However, I still find that they dig at my cuticle making the fit uncomfortable. Yeah I know, don't be a "insert your favorite derisive term here" but it does detract from what I hoped would be the answer to my finger picking failures! That said, I'd still recommend them as they are definitely unlike anything I've ever tried before and will certainly work for a whole lot of folks that aren't wimps like me. Just hoping perhaps that they might design them to add a bit of material to the center of the pick so that the cuticle area is covered rather than dug into.

                    I have been looking for a pick that I can use. I play with my fingernails but after time the nails start wearing down so I needed something that would protect them and at the same time produce a good sound. i have never been able to hold on to a flat pick so this was the solution that worked best for me. I use just one on my index finger usually but have also tried two. Wish I could get one to fit my thumb but have not found the correct size

                        I used National steel finger picks in the 60's. They were difficult to fit, uncomfortable and sounded loud but tinny. No so with Delrin Freedom Finger Picks. Use hot water to adjust the fit. More comfortable than any other finger pick I have tried. I haven't used fingerpicks for sometime now, but is getting better with practice. Fingernails work great until you break one, or two! Though I am still adjusting to using finger picks again, these have a natural feel on the strings, the tome is also more natural, unlike steel finger picks. The material is tough and will not wear out in a lifetime. They are adjustable with hot water. great tone. What's not to like. I recommend these picks to anyone who fingerpicks anything with strings.

                          Have used steam in double boiler for adjusting. Mostly had to go smaller. Ordered 3 smalls; if too tight, I know I can adjust them. Medium for middle finger and index; small for ring finger. Very happy with fit and sound

                          These are great picks for us finger pickers. I wouldn't recommend them to banjo players (need that style for banjo), but for guitar, these are great. They serve well for upward picking as well as downward strumming. If you're unplugged, they help with volume, as well. Thumbs up to Fred Kelly!
