Black Mountain Picks has introduced an innovative new guitar thumb pick that utilizes a spring for a better fit and new functionality.
A New Take On Picking
The Black Mountain Pick is built for musicians who enjoy playing with their fingers (fingerstyle) but also enjoy playing with a pick (flatpicking).
Players love the Black Mountain Pick because it feels like a regular pick, but it also feels like a traditional thumb pick.
This patented new technology offers several advantages over traditional thumb picks.
1) The spring allows the pick to be flexible so it feels like a regular flat pick
2) The spring clamps the thumb ring around the player’s thumb creating a perfect balance between comfort and stability.
I love this pick. I have only tried thumb picking a couple of times – I typically play with my fingers and sometimes a flat pick. This device gives you a new tool for expression. It didn’t take long to get used to the feel and it really adds punch and clarity to the thumb strokes. A real winner!
