    Collections: Featured, Pick Tins, Picks, Products

    Each species has a different Janka Hardness Ranking and offers unique playability, tone and flexibility characteristics.  This is the perfect sampler pack to try them all and see which species you prefer best.

    NOTE: We are not able to release Tigerwood in our 1.4 thickness at this time due to challenges with the wood during our manufacturing process, but we are offering it in a 0.9mm.  

      All three variations come in a Collectable Purpleheart Pick Tin.

      We do plan to offer these woods in our other shapes after the holidays, but will only be able to offer our standard pick shape for the 2018 Holiday season.  

      We are offering this Exotic Wood Sampler Tin in 3 different variations: 
      • A 7-pick mixed set that includes 1 each of our 0.9mm & 1.4mm picks
      • A 8-pick 0.9mm set that includes 2 each of our 0.9mm picks in all four species
      • A 6-pick 1.4mm set that includes 2 each of our 1.4mm picks in Santos Rosewood, Bubinga & Purpleheart (again we were not able to make the Tigerwood in 1.4mm at this time)

      Thickness Specs

      You can order our sampler pick tin in 0.9mm, 1.4mm or a Mixed thicknesses.  Mixed thickness is half 0.9 and half 1.4mm.

      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.

      Our Pick Technology

      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. Our 0.9mm picks are made with 2 layers of exotic wood and 1.4mm picks are made with 3 layers of exotic wood.

      Durability & Playability

      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.
