Nick Picks - Best Tone and Comfort

5.00/5 - 25 reviews

New product

Cobalt coated special designed custom picks designed for solid tone, comfort, and speed.

Bob Perry custom made these picks specifically for me and they are only available at BanjoTeacher.com.

These picks sound great, they're comfortable and the cobalt coating does what it says it does, cuts string noise to nill and the picks glide over the strings.

..what a difference, better tone and solid feel, comfortable well worth the bucks a sound investment to any banjo player and they stay on when you pick harder...

They fit back further on your finger like I requested, the no hole design avoids those finger through the hole sores, but more importantly that gives the pick more mass for a thicker, fatter tone. These picks sound great, they're comfortable and the cobalt coating does what it says it does, cuts string noise to nill and the picks glide over the strings. The coating also roughens up the inside of the pick so it grips better. I've been playing a long time, these picks are a break through.

More info

Note: The cobalt coating wears off eventually depending on the amount of use. Nick Picks can be re-coated for 4.00 by sending them to Bob Perry, the manufacturer. His contact information is on the pick box.

When the coating eventually wears off I personally just keep playing them. It's gradual and I don't really notice the change. The picks are louder with the coating and the coating is not just a gimmick but like a lot of folks finding the time to send them for re-coat doesn't always happen. I like them most for the comfort, tone and really one set lasts indefinitely...as long as you don't lose them.

The picks have money back satisfaction guarantee. If you don't like them for any reason just send them back for a full refund. No questions asked.

From Ross: When pickers laugh at spending more than a couple of bucks for picks I have to take exception to that. Where does the tone start??? How can someone invest so much time, money, practice and set-up work on their banjo without listening to the tone of different picks, and going for the best. Do comfortable picks mean anything? How they feel on your fingers when you strike the string? It certainly does to me especially after a few hours of playing or teaching. I never could find a pick I really liked till now, I've tried them all. Isn't thick full tone, no string scratch, and a better grip important? Hell ya it is. It makes sense to me to spend money on good picks and a good bridge, that's where it begins. I mean that, this isn't just a sales pitch. I've seen a good bridge bring a cheap banjo alive and seen cheap bridges on mastertones make them sound like overpriced duds. Picks are in the same category, they are at the beginning of tone and how your picks feel and sound to you without a doubt is important.

Nick Picks
I recently purchased your Nick Picks. Even someone as new to the Banjo as I am can tell the immediate difference! “How can someone invest so much time, money, practice and set-up work on their banjo without listening to the tone of different picks, and going for the best.” Amen! I also purchased the JD Crowe Thumbpick; well worth the money.

Love the Picks...
New to Banjo's... I ended up with a pile of picks, until now. I just love the Nicks Picks... they fit well & just seem to be part of my fingers rather than a prosthetic hehe.

thanks for a great product
I received my new finger and thumb picks today and, WOW, what a difference they make in my playing. The tone is incredible, and I have increased my playing speed dramatically! I started learning the banjo 2 years ago at 66; now at 68 my old fingers don't move as fast any more. But, the new picks have really helped. thanks for a great product Ross.
