Slip this combination thumb pick and flat pick on your thumb and you are ready to play finger picked licks, strummed chords, and single-note melodies. Versatile Thumb-Flat eliminates pick switching and other daredevil maneuvers. Play with greater musical expression with this two-in-one guitar pick.
The Thumb-Flat is now available in two tonal flavors: The “Tear Drop” and the “Classic.” The “Classic” features a #351 style flat pick and produces a slightly brighter tone than “Tear Drop.” All Thumb-Flats feature a rotatable flat pick so the player can angle the pick to their liking.
ProPik fingerpicks are designed to be completely adjustable, so it is one size fits all. We also offer a Small & Medium line of picks, specifically designed for players with smaller hands.
When it comes to thumbpicks, most players will use medium or large thumbpicks, depending on the size of their hands and again, these are adjustable to you and your style. Many average size players even prefer using Large thumb picks and adjusting them down.
Nickel is the most popular choice and is close to the brightness of stainless steel, but just a hair warmer. Many people prefer nickel because they are more adjustable than steel, which by its nature is much harder to adjust.
Brass is the warmest of the 3 metal choices.
The brightest of the three metals offered (stainless steel, nickel, brass). Due to the way they are manufactured and buffed to a high sheen, there is also less drag on the string, thus producing less pick noise and accents the brightness further.
#1 blades are the most narrow and #3 blades are the widest. The #1 and #2 blades are the most popular, with the #2 being a hair more popular.
Over the years, players have made all kinds of alterations to their picks (and their technique) to make them work better. Angled blades allow you to hit the strings squarely with minimized finger movement, so you get a boost of tone, speed, volume, and reduced pick noise.
The combo thumb/flat pick is a great idea, but the flat pick is too thick and stiff to use to strum anything. I use “heavy” Fender picks for flat picks, so I prefer stiff flat picks, but this combo pick is too thick and stiff to use as a flat pick. A simple fix I think...
After spending over a hundred dollars on my search for a comfortable thumb pick, ProPik solved my problem with their Thumb-Flat Thumbpick!!!! I love this pick and bought 4 more for all my banjos and ukuleles!!! Thank you ProPik!!!
