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.
I'm learning to play, so I'm no expert. The used banjo I had came with a few metal finger picks with one that was rounded and the others were really pointy. I liked the rounded one which is why I bought these. They fit well, but I find the price was kinda ridiculous. But I wanted picks that didn't have any logos on them. I didn't need the thumb picks, but this was the only set I could find like this that didn't have some brand name stamped on them and didn't feel like shopping around any longer.
I heard that it was important that the edges were rounded, which these are. If the edges are sharp, then they cut up the strings over time.
These picks are great, and I love the bright colors of the thumb picks. My only complaint is that they can be a little difficult to get tight enough on my small fingers (I'm a woman) without overlapping the ends, but they still work just fine most of the time.
I kept putting off the Golden Gate "clown barf" picks even though everyone talked them up. I ended up needing some new finger picks and saw this combo, so decided to give them a shot. Wish I would have tried these picks before.
