You can order our pick packs in either 0.9mm or 1.4mm thicknesses. Our 1.4mm would be similar to a Fender Thick, but with a much warmer tone. 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. Our 0.9mm pick have flex and and amazing tone, but they do wear down somewhat quickly so we suggest you try these first before ordering.
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% Santos Rosewood. Our 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. The 0.9mm picks are best for acoustic players or players with a lighter playing style. If you are a hard strummer then these picks are not for you; instead we recommend the 1.4mm
Our 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.

Having a guitar with a Macassar Striped Ebony back made matching the wood for accessories, more difficult. That is, until Thalia came out with a Macassar Picks and the Tin. The Pick Puck was an extra that I never really expected. It is beautiful, too, and actually gets more discussion than all the others. Thalia's craftsmanship and work is just plain gorgeous! The puck is genius! And has the side benefit of making picks available wherever I want to put it (so as to be able to grab them to play). And the beautiful picks have the benefit of being useful for playing, as well. Note: I smoothed out the edges on the picks before using them to play much - as I like a little more of a rounded single edge than what came on delivery, which was a bit flat and edgy, at first.
Thalia wooden picks are my favorites. They just seem to glide along the strings. I destroyed one of the lighter wood picks with some heavy strumming and decided to try the Ebony picks. They are holding up well and I will be buying more when these wear out. Or when I hand them out to friends which is where half of my Thalia picks have gone.
Bought these to experiment with as a change from my usual choice of picks, and so happy I did. For those wondering how these sound, it is almost a similar tone to a finger style technique, but with the attack and definition of a pick. The feeling of their texture is one of my favorite aspects, being less prone to slippage than synthetic picks, and I love the sort of bouncy response they have against the strings. They are quite durable as well, the ones of the bunch I have used so far have seen heavy use and are still holding up well after a month and half or so. It also helps that they and the case they come in are beautiful in design as well. Very happy overall with this purchase
I've had the Ebony picks (0.9mm) long enough to have used them on all my guitars - acoustic and electric; 6 and 12 string - and I like 'em. They flex enough to give you a shimmering glissando, are firm enough to thunk out a palm mute and yet not so stiff they feel stuck on the string. A pick's job is to set the string in motion . . . the Ebony 2.0 does it wicked good.
I have to say that I really like the ebony picks, man in the moon. The sound they produce is, to my ears, warmer than what I get from a typical pic. I've tried lots of styles, plastic, hard, metal, thins, mediums etc. I just really think the sound from the ebony, which is a little sitter than a typical medium, is warm and great for my style of playing. I play every day, and I'm gigging live usually twice a week.
I play a wide variety of music and do a lot of flat picking and lead playing - more bluesy than speed metal... I play a Gibson Les Paul, Taylor 314ce, 335 and Strat mostly. I would highly recommend the ebony picks for the tone, and the picks and tin they came with gets lots admiring glances. Very artistic and usable.
