First off, I want to tell you that I really like your picks.
I'm a fingerstyle player who has just grown, and polished my nails for the longest time, hoping against hope that they didn't break when I needed them.
I've tried all the other picks. They all have their good points, but no one has been able to really give me what I need, that tactile touch of the pad on my fingertip to really play right.
I've played for 50 years, trying the first twenty to make a living at it, and we all know how hard that is. I'm semi retired, and want to get back playing, since I don't need it to make a living, just enough to keep me from making French fries, or handing out carts at the big box stores.
You are the first person who has been able to 'solve' my thumb problem going from bare fingers to picks. I play with the very edge of my thumbnail, and the regular butterfly is the best pick I've ever found for having a good connection with the string.
The coated thumb pick is really great. It just really quiets down the string noise.
Your idea is absolutely fantastic! I want to see these picks everywhere I go. I'm showing these to every player I know. The butterfly picks are the best.

I have been familiarizing myself with the picks in the past two days after I knock off from work. What I have to say about the picks is that they are so so.... amazing! I must mention that, the first time I used them they felt awkward, unusual but comfortable. My hands slid a number of times. However, it's like the more I played the more I got accustomed to the picks.
Comfortable and beautiful: Once I got accustomed, I realized how comfortable they are. It is like just playing the guitar with fingers only. I do not have to change the position of my hand to play. Plus they really look good on me. They are so beautiful and lovely.
Beautiful rich tone: My guitar (Washburn AC and Breedlove AC/EL) sound has totally been transformed. The tone is warm, rich and calm. It is settling. It's like wearing a very nice, warm, a freshness of clarity, subtle yet invigorating perfume on a warm summer day. It is so sweet to the ear. The produced tone blends very well with my voice. I love it. The easy glide on the strings makes the tone smooth and well defined.
I have tried to use the conventional picks but do not like them because of their placement. Moreover, I like my nails short, so keeping long nails was never an alternative. Therefore, butterfly picks are perfect for me. They leave me with a wow factor each time I play.

My 6's, both acoustics and electric never sounded so good.
I like the way the picks kind of "Glide" across the strings.
Such precise control with your design.
No harsh twangy standard finger pick sound.
They sound especially nice when a standard backward strum from 1st string down is performed with the finger picks as well as any arpeggio forward with the thumb or backward with the fingers, especially on the 12 strings.
Trying to hit a particular string set on the 12 is a learning experience but it can be done.
What does sound nice on the 12's is playing in string groups like you would with "Intermittent" strumming with a flat pick.
I am so very pleased. After playing for over 45 years and going through all manner of finger picks this is really a treat for me.
Even recording at the studio sounds so much better.
You've made my long time friend and engineer very happy.

After years of frustrating experiments with different types of finger picks, yours are exactly what I always looked for. I had never heard of them before and I got them on Google by mere accident. Such an amazingly simple concept. They work wonderfully.

I received the coated butterfly fingerpicks. It was a little weird at first to use the butterfly fingerpicks, and my fingers fumbled around for a minute or two.
Once my fingers became reoriented to the strings, however, I was immediately impressed at how distinctly soft the picks sounded; kind of like the guitar instrumentals one hears that only the professionals are able to achieve.
It was somewhat of a leap of faith when I bought the fingerpicks, but I'm glad that I did.

Amazingly, these are the first finger picks that I have actually found comfortable to use!
When I first came across the Butterfly Finger Picks, I couldn't believe that something that looked so simple could work, but I was amazed how easy they were to use straight away.
They are really really comfortable!
The way they are constructed means that you can really shape them around your fingers to get a nice tight grip and once fitted properly, they stay that way and do not slip off your fingers.
When playing, I found that they make a nice warm, full tone and glide off the strings effortlessly.
They feel really natural.

Hi, Just got the picks, Great! I've tried every pick out there and finally found what I've been searching for!
I play Mt. Dulcimer, 3 and 4 string Cigar Box Guitar, Weissenborn, Autoharp and Guitar and the picks are incredible on all the instruments. I also perform a solo gig most every weekend on these instruments, doing a show mainly focused on traditional American instruments, while offering a sample of old and contemporary sounds from them.
To feel the strings with the fingertips and at the same time the new ability to bring out all the true tone, ie., the highs and mids that bare fingertips diminish, is a totally new experience. I'm liking them more and more, minute by minute.

I am writing to say that so far I am very pleased with the new style of finger picks that you have developed.
I ordered a set of the gold colored ones and received them today. They were easy and quick to adjust, and I found them VERY easy to get accustomed to. I play both steel string guitar and classical, and until now I've never used picks. I have always used bare fingers and nails. There is an intimacy that one develops with the guitar by using one's fingers that seems to become lost when playing with picks. It's rather like stroking a lover's cheek wearing work gloves.
I have tried to use conventional style solid finger picks, but found them too loud and harsh for most of the pieces I play. The Butterfly picks give a soft, mellow sound while providing the same control that one has with bare fingers, allowing the fingertips to touch the strings for more accurate positioning than conventional solid finger picks provide. Transitioning from playing with bare fingers to using the Butterfly finger picks is very easy. The picks are also much more comfortable than solid steel or plastic picks.
The reason I ordered the Butterfly finger picks is because of occasional damage to my nails while at work or doing maintenance or repairs on my vehicle. I am a machinery fabricator. I work with steel all day, every day. In making and fitting the various machinery parts, I sometimes accidentally nick the ends of my fingernails, causing chipping, tearing, or breaking of one or more nails. Chipping and tearing are also a problem when doing maintenance or repairs to my vehicle. When chipping or tearing occurs, I usually have to trim my nails too short to use when playing guitar. I needed picks that would allow me to feel the strings and have better control of my playing. The Butterfly finger picks are just the ticket!
Thank you for your insight and ingenuity, and for developing a super product.

The picks arrived and they are perfect for my husband's fingers. When he plays I love the sound the strings make. So clean and smooth.
