Includes 6 engraved dharma wheel 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.
The wheel of Dharma is one of the most important religious Buddhist symbols. The symbolises the Buddha's turning the Wheel of Truth or Law. The wheel refers to the story that shortly after the Buddha achieved enlightenment, Brahma came down from heaven and requested the Buddha to teach by offering him a Dharmachakra. The eight spokes of the wheel symbolize the Noble Eightfold Path set out by the Buddha in his teachings.
The wheel also represents the endless cycle of samsara, or rebirth, which can only be escaped by means of the Buddha's teachings. And some Buddhists regard the the wheel's three basic parts as symbols of the "three trainings" in Buddhist practice: The hub symbolizes moral discipline, which stabilizes the mind. The spokes (usually there are eight) represent wisdom which is applied to defeat ignorance. The rim represents training in concentration, which holds everything else together.
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% 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.
It’s expensive for me as an overseas customer after adding the shipping costs compared to stuff I can buy from essentially China. But... Thalia is a dream to use. Simple. Smooth. Different gauges to fit the range of necks I have.
I bought another...

Nice picks, a little bright at first, but with after a few songs they soften to a nice, balanced, sound. Notice in the picture which pick is woven in the strings on the guitar neck!
Chord strumming and string picking is noticeably warmer sounding than conventional picks. I cannot get the same pick harmonic response as when I use plastic or nylon picks tho. Other than that they are durable and sound very nice. And like their capos, they are nice to look at. I will definitely continue to use Thalia picks in the future.
