Includes 6 different celtic-symbol-engraved picks in a collectible aluminum tin with a Exotic Wood inlay. Picks come in both 1.4mm and 0.9mm thicknesses. We recommend the 1.4mm thickness as they are the most durable. We only suggest the 0.9mm if you have previously tried and love our 0.9mm picks.
You can order our pick tins in 0.9mm or 1.4mm thicknesses.
Our 0.9mm has a playability that is similar to a Fender Medium, while our 1.4mm would be similar to a Fender Thick, but with a much warmer tone.
Thalia Exotic Wood Picks are crafted by slicing micro-thin layers of exotic wood and then bonding them back together with the woodgrain in a crosshatch pattern. The result is a very thin, flexible and durable wood pick with a warm tone that sounds better with each use. We offer multiple shapes and thicknesses.
Check out the overview video below for more details:
Our picks are made in the USA of 100% Exotic Wood and come in 4 different species. Our 0.9mm picks are made with 2 layers of exotic wood and 1.4mm picks are made with 3 layers of exotic wood.
Our picks are made of 100% wood so they will wear down with use. They will not last as long as a plastic pick, but we think that you will love their tone and thinness.
Our thinnest pick, the 0.9mm is flexible and functionally similar to a Fender Medium. As a result these picks will wear out much faster than our thicker 1.4mm picks. These picks are made of two layers of wood that are crosshatched for strength. They are the most fragile of all of our picks. These picks are really made for users who desire flex in their wood pick. If you are a hard strummer the 0.9mm picks are probably not for you.
Our thicker 1.4mm picks will develop a beveled edge as you play with them and adapt to your picking style. These picks are made of three layers of wood and are far more durable. As a result, they really don't have any flex.
Celtic Cross - Some experts suggested that this even-armed Celtic cross represented the four stages of the day: morning, noon, evening and midnight while some considered it as a representation of earth, air, water and fire. It was ultimately adapted by Saint Patrick who decided to combine the Christian cross with the Celtic circle representing eternity.
Claddagh - derived from the Irish term an cladach, the word Claddagh means “flat stony shore” and is the name of a fishing village in Galway, Ireland. The heart represents love while the clasping hands represent unity and promises, the crown represents loyalty and the heart in hands represents belonging and sacrifice meaning to say “I come to you with my whole heart”.
Awen - the symbol of three rays (sometimes interpreted as three flames), is a neo-Druid symbol. The two rays on the sides represent male and female energy while the one in the center represents the balance between them. The Awen was used as the symbol of unity and harmony of the opposites in the universe. Therefore, it could be interpreted as “the Celtic yin-yang”
Tree of Life - Crann Bethadh, the Celtic Tree of Life, is much more than a single trunk borne of roots below and stretching to the heavens with branches above; it is the symbol of all of life on the planet, born of the earth and sustained by the power of the Universe. It is an intricate representation that links every root below to every branch above, depicting the network of natural bonds that links all Life together.
Triquetra - this symbol is also known as the trinity knot. It has been used to represent many different concepts throughout time. As far as symbolizing a trinity goes, it was used to represent mind, body and soul; past, present and future; life, death and rebirth; creation, preservation and destruction; as well as the Father, Son and Holy Ghost.
Triskelion - this symbol is comprised of three conjoined spirals with rotational symmetry. That is why it is also called “the triple spiral”. It represents triple nature and the movement of life which is formed of past, present and future. The triskelion was also a symbol of strength in Celtic culture since it represents the will to move forward overcoming adverse conditions that one might face.
I have been using Thalia’s Picks for some time and I really like them in the way that they interact with the strings creating subtle nuances!
This is my third set of picks from Thalia. I love their feel and sound. Definitely the pick of the litter
These picks are really beautiful firm picks. I got the 1.4 mm picks and I really like how firm and thick they are. They don’t give at all which is what I personally like. The container they come in is super cool. The only part that I was kinda disappointed in was that all of the picks in the exotic wood sample kinda sounded and felt the same to me. This could just be my lack of ability to hear the difference but they just didn’t seem to sound different to me at all. They do all look really nice and over all I am really satisfied with my purchase.
Everything about the Bubinga pick tin is stylish, especially the engraved wood top. The two thicknesses of pick give you different options on playing style. The wood pick gives a more earthy sound.
I ordered the Yin Yang pick tin but failed to pay attention to the thickness. When they arrived they were thinner than the ones I had previously ordered as a test, but to my surprise I actually like the way they play more than the thicker ones. The fact that the tin and the picks perfectly match my guitar is especially lucky. I’ll defiantly be buying them again.
