Includes 6 different celtic-symbol-engraved picks in a collectible aluminum tin with a Santos Rosewood inlay. Picks come in both 1.4mm and 0.9mm thicknesses -- a different celtic symbol is engraved on one side and the Thalia logo with thickness spec on the other. 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 celtic pick tins in our 1.4mm thickness only. 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% 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.
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.
