Dunlop Zookies L-20 Thumbpick - 20º allows a more natural hand position and better string Contact by keeping the tip parallel to the string. Zookies' contoured shape allows greater comfort, zero wear-in-time, and secure fit. Size: Large
I've been using standard Dunlop thumbpicks for a quite a while now, so thought it might be an idea to check out the alternatives to see if it could improve my playing.
Maybe my thumb has just grown used to the feel of Dunlops, but even after several weeks of using this Zookie (on and off) it still doesn't feel quite right. I'm sure I've got the right size, large, but it feels uncomfortable after a few minutes playing. It seems to affect the blood flow to my thumb and causes a 'jarring' sensation after a while when I strum forcefully.
The quality of the item is good, and I'm sure it will last. And I like the idea of the angled pick, that works for me, but the fit is the issue. I might just use the old trick of soaking it in boiling water and bending it a bit wider to see if a more loose fit works better. But, for the price, it's definitely worth trying out, it may suit you more than it does me.
Tried these out for bass guitar, as I find it hard to grip a standard pick - I get cramp from gripping too tightly. These were great, gripped well, and did make it easier to find a natural striking pattern. There are tangible differences between the different angles, so try the range out to see what suits.
