QUESTION: I recently decided to start using a thumbpick after years without. Still going without fingerpicks (I also play ukulele and nylon guitar). Also I have moved to a higher bridge - 11/16".
So the standard thumbpick is a little too long. I cut one down so the tip extends 5mm -6mm below the outer shell of the thumbstrap. It's pretty good, though I may want to take even more off.
Which picks do you recommend that are close to this measurement? I'd like to find one I can use out of the box without cutting down. I'm out of business if I lose this one pick right now.
Also do you sell single strings? I am doing my own sets in D and E below the regular G. Can I order 5 or so in a gauge?
We don't sell individual strings, sorry about that. GHS banjo strings has a lot of string gauge options though.
I cut mine down. Since in my opinion all thumbpick blades are too long for banjo, a better strategy be to find a thumbpick you like and get good at trimming them the way you like them.
