    A Set of Banjo Picks

    A set of banjo picks for learning and beginning banjo

    A set of banjo picks with a plastic thumbpick and two metal finger picks are all you need to get started picking the 5-string banjo. We have comfortable cobalt coated banjo finger picks, rubber coated finger picks, extra large, child sized, women sizes and plastic banjo thumb picks in all sizes and styles for banjo beginners and experienced players.

    Banjo players when playing bluegrass banjo use finger picks. You would not be heard if you do not use picks and practicing without them can make it much harder to get used to them later. Practicing without picks can also change the way you strike the strings which could affect your technique in the long run creating muscle memory habits that are harder to break later.
