Single Thumbpick. (For a child, or a woman with narrow thumbs, please order a Fingerpick to use on your thumb.) Size is adjustable: open the double prongs on the pick, place metal loop against the pad of your thumb/finger (NOT the nail), pinch the double prongs so they are tight. Now, play without pain all night! Even if you have strong nails, get a set for emergencies (nail breaks, etc.) Note: one plays mbira with the flesh of the thumbs & finger, backed by the nail; so, without nails at least to the end of your thumbs and finger, many people get blisters where the thumb is pushed against the nail’s edge. This is particularly true when starting to learn mbira, before you develop calluses.
