To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
There isn't a quality issue here, but one of simply not liking the product. It's one of taste. But, if you're looking for a full, round, mellow tone, these aren't what you want. They're too hard. They produce a loud percussive noise - no worse than any other thick pick, but no better, as I'd been hoping, and a nylon pick gives you more of a mellow sound, with less treble. I just don't see the point to these. Any plastic pick will serve you just as well, and any nylon pick better, if you're after what I was.
Great product. I got exactly what is in the picture including the packaging. The picks work really well for my ukulele and make my lunch time private jam sessions a lot of fun. I ordered the pink color. I've used 2 of them and they are breaking in rather well. I tested two of the picks by throwing them in hot water with mild hand soap to wash off the greasiness from my fingers. I put the picks on the window sill to dry in the sun. They were fine and were no longer greasy. So overall a great product. Will order more again in the future.
The texture is strange and I can hear it scratch against the strings when I’m strumming. I found some rubber ones that are better but not great cuz those fall apart like an eraser .. just can’t win lol
Soft, fuzzy, ridiculous looking picks that sound excellent. I'm using them on a baritone ukulele, and they make such a gentler sound than guitar picks. These come much closer to the sound you'll get strumming with your fingers.
