With its new “beak” design, this pick will work for most players straight out of the package and onto the fingertips, either right-side up or inverted. The curve follows a similar radius found on steel picks, so “inverted” may be the chosen orientation for playing stringed-instruments such as Autoharp, banjo, pedal-steel, or resonator. The “original” nail design is preferred by Autoharp players, and will continue to be available. Whether it’s an upstroke, or a down-stroke, the Ultimate finger pick will stay put and enhance the tonal quality of your finger picking experience! This 2nd generation nail is still fully customizable–if necessary–for the end-user, so no matter what your finger picking style may be, The Ultimate FingerPick will potentially work for you! Our first production run is the MEDIUM sized clear over-mold Expansion slits [shown in the pic below] can be added by the end-user, for more “breathing-room” in the interim.
Sizing: A good way to decide which size will work best for you, is by the measurement of the first knuckle on your index finger.
- The Large is about a 9 to 9 1/2 ring size, in its relaxed state, and expands from there [NOT available yet, for the 2nd gen nail design] “Small” over-mold is also on the drawing board.
- The Medium is about a 6 1/2 to 7 ring size, in its relaxed state, and easily expands to ~10.
- Search “ring size templates” if you need to measure yours.
