The Black Mountain Thumb Pick is a boutique thumb pick, also the first in the world to use a spring. This patented technology offers several advantages over traditional thumb picks:

The spring allows the pick to be flexible, so it feels like a regular guitar pick
The spring clamps the thumb ring around the player’s thumb to create a perfect balance between comfort and stability

Invented by Cole McBride, a full-time guitar teacher who was looking for the perfect pick for his students as well as himself. After playing hundreds of different picks, he decided there was room for innovation, and set out to invent a new kind of plectrum. 

Cole spent a lot of time experimenting with different designs, until the idea of a spring came to mind. The Black Mountain thumb pick is built for musicians who enjoy playing with their fingers (fingerstyle) but also enjoy playing with a pick (flatpicking).  

Players love the Black Mountain Pick because it feels like a regular guitar pick and also a traditional thumb pick.
