...... I really like the way they set further back on the finger. I take lessons on Friday and after my instructor heard me play with the new "Nick Picks",,, he told me to throw my old picks (Dunlop) away. ha
...... Oh man, when they arrived and I slipped them on, they were as snug as a bug on a rug. I thought I died and went to heaven. I could hardly tell I had them on. They were everything, and a little more, then you said. Just as a beginner, the comfort alone made them worth every penny.
Happy picking, Tim Dellinger
.....Hi Nick, this is another order for 2 more sets of your Kick Ass picks.. I am impressed with their tone and the increased finger dexterity I have using your picks. I am going to place one set with each of my 4 banjos
........Just wanted to let you know that I got my new Nick Picks. Thanks for carrying such a nice product.......Tried your nic picks from a guy I was teaching banjo today. I thought they were great and had to get some. I'll be be showing these off, I think they are fantasic. Founder of Banjo Gazette and British Bluegrass News
....Hey Ross, I got my order two days ago and I am amazed a the difference that the Nick Picks are making in my playing. I have had my banjo for about a month now and had been using the basic Dunlop finger picks from the local guitar store. Yours are so much more comfortable and the thicker metal gives a much more positive feel; fast and smooth (unlike my playing). Thanks for creating such a great product, it is a real help for a beginner like me. .
.......The picks and pick pocket have just arrived, nice and comfortable and my tone has improved
......Hi Ross, I got the new ones. I love 'em!
.....They are comfy, secure, and solid -- Thanks
.....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.
.....Hello Ross: Got the Nick Picks yesterday and they work like MAGIC. You would sell them by the truck load if people only knew of them and tried them. They give such a clear crisp sound with so little effort that it really helps with my finger control. Regards...Floyd
..........Thank you for sending me the two Nick Picks you kindly offered to help me overcome a problem, I am still experimenting but so far they've enabled me to practice with more comfort and clearer tone than I have managed previously. Your help and kindness is appreciated and has reinforced my respect for you and the care you show your customers. Thanks again.
........Just got my Nick Picks and I must say they are a lot more comfortable to wear and the tone is great! I like how you have only one of the Nick Picks marked with an "N" I always have to try on my picks to find the right one for each finger that I sized Now I know that the one marked "N" is my middle finger pick!
........I think that they were definitely worth the price. My fingers are small and so I had to squeeze the picks down to size for a good fit, but after that I find them to be greatly beneficial to my picking enjoyment. Great product!
.....I could not believe how much a simple change of picks could alter the tone of my banjo. I play a Gold Tone BG 250 F. While I had liked its playability, I had always felt it wasn’t quite bright enough. In fact over the last 9 months my right hand has been drifting closer and closer to the bridge trying to extract a little more brightness. When I played my first few experimental rolls with the Nick Picks, I was blown away at how bright the sound was. At first I thought it was too much. After a couple of weeks now I am getting used to them, and find I’m not cramping the bridge as much as I was. In particular I found tone production up the neck was way better then my previous Dunlop picks. As for comfort they are heads and shoulders above the old Dunlops which used to actually hurt after a long session. I can play for 3 or 4 hours without any discomfort at all.
