Collection: Guzheng Picks 指甲

How to Select Guzheng Picks

Question 1:  How to choose the right size?

Answer: The size of the guzheng picks should equal to the first joint of your finger.   Measure the first joint of either your index or middle finger, from the joint end to finger tip.  That is the size you need.

Question 2:  What thickness do I need?

Answer:  The cost of the picks are based on the materials used.  The thicker the more expensive.  However, thicker ones need stronger finger power.  If you are a beginner, it's better to start with thinner ones.  For more advance players, it's up to your tone preference.  Thicker picks produce a warmer and rounder tone while thinner picks produce a sharper and brighter tone.  

Question 3:  What are the grooves?

Answer:  The picks with grooves are carved underneath that curves in like the finger shape.  It's for comfortable wear, some people prefer the grooved ones, and some people feel the grooves lack support for plucking.  It's up to personal preference.
