I've played banjo for a long time, and finger style guitar for a long time, so I figured these might be a nice blend for banjo. Unfortunately, they just felt too strange to keep using. Two things primarily bugged me: One, it's weird to have your fingertip hit the string and then a millisecond later have your pick hit the string. I suppose you get used to it after a while, but it drove me nuts. Second. having your flesh drag across the string really slowed down (or felt like it slowed down) how fast and smooth my rolls were. I understand a lot of people use these for guitar, which makes sense unless you're doing super-fast Chet Atkins picking. Sorry, Pro Pick, not for me.
Being a clawhamner banjo player , I found this pick to very useful when my index fingernail is broken. Takes a little getting used to where it needs to rest on you’re finger , but after a few cumulative hours of practice I found it gives the closest sound to playing with my nail. It was shipped quickly and as I am in Louisiana I will be dealing with David for a long time to come. Thank you!
The order and service was perfect!
Still getting used to it. Over 50 years of National & Dunlop make the change hard. I like the concept though.
