Includes 6 engraved Chai picks in a collectible aluminum tin with a Santos Rosewood 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.
Chai, which means "Life" in Hebrew, is one of the most recognizable symbols of the Jewish faith. Comprised of the letters Chet and Yud, together they form the word "Chai" - a word that reflects the importance of life in Judaism. According to the Gematria, a Jewish mystical tradition that assigns a numerological value to Hebrew letters, the Chet has a value of 8 and the Yud has a value of 10, adding up to the number 18. Because of this, the number 18 represents good luck and gifts are often given in multiples of Chai, or 18. It symbolizes giving the recipient the gift of "life" or luck.
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.

Our picks are made in the USA of 100% Santos Rosewood. 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.
Love these picks, The tone of the guitar is enhanced with the wood picks. The sound can be modified even more with the differences in thickness and different types of wood picks. I will never go back to a plastic pick again. As you use the picks the flexibility changes and improves playing even more. But these are my favorite showing off my pride and love of the USA. Thanks for such a nice product.
I am not a professional guitar player by any means, but I do greatly enjoy the instrument. Thalia and their products were recommended to me by a friend, and after playing with some of the picks he had purchased, I knew I had to buy some for myself!
The Picks themselves are beautiful, and the engravings are an excellent touch that result in a very nice and unique product. I was concerned with possibly breaking the picks because they are made of wood, but they are very sturdy and very well made.
The picks have a very nice tone and only seem to sound better the more I play with them. All in all, very nice product, and I would recommend any of the Thalia picks to anyone who enjoys playing the guitar.
As a guitar teacher and player I’ve gone exclusive playing Thalia wood picks. Best tone. No clicky plastic
I love my Tree of Life/ Bubinga Pick Tin purchase. The picks feels great to use and they look awesome too.
Honestly I thought this was a gimmick. I am an amateur guitarist who plays primarily acoustic, and I have a lot of guitar playing friends and family. I thought this would be a nifty gift idea so I bought a sampler to see what they were like. I am sold. Totally and completely. I had months old medium strings on my guitar and these picks made them sound brand new. I am not lying. I could not believe the difference between these wooden picks and my normal "plastic" or vinyl ones. Heck I hadn't even heard of wooden picks before. Flat picking with these is amazingly crisp and clear and the wooden texture helps this left-hander hold on to the picks perfectly. So... they turned out to be a perfect gift idea - and they have become my #1 choice for personal use. Also, I messaged this company via facebook messenger wanting info on the durability and such - and they gave me an immediate reply, in depth and personal. All around a superb purchase experience.
