This is how Rusty Thornhill himself tells the story of Perfect Touch Finger Picks.
Although National style finger-picks have been around for the better part a hundred years, few finger-pickers are completely satisfied with how they work and feel.
Among the complaints: if they’re adjusted tightly enough to stay on , they hurt, not to mention the hangnails they can cause; for some, clicking picks is an annoyance; for others, it is difficult of impossible to finesse a musical piece with hurting fingers, or while worrying that at that moment a pick might come off and shoot across the stage.
Rusty Thornhill, a lifelong musician, recording studio engineer/producer, author, inventor, and technology developer, played a gut strung guitar for decades because his finger nails could not endure steel strings for more than one of two songs.
When he tried to use National style finger picks, his ‘’touch went out the window.’’ For thirty years he dreamed of a finger pick that would feel like fingernails. He decided to make his heart’s desire a reality. After what seemed like endless hours of development, and a drawer full of hand- made prototypes, Rusty Thornhill’s dream at last emerged from the shadows.
The result is what he calls Perfect Touch Finger PicksTM.(patented)
Designed as a set of at least two, each pick has a unique shape, which virtually prevents clicking. When snugly installed, it is almost impossible to sling them off the fingers. Some say the picks feel like part of the finger when they put them on. And while in truth, they may not feel exactly like fingernails, it’s as close as one is liable to get with a finger pick. With these picks, one can actually achieve the ‘’perfect touch.’’
The picks are designed to reside above the cuticle. The middle finger pick is designed with a low wrap with cut-outs that allow the forefinger pick, which is designed with a unique high wrap, to touch the skin of the middle finger, instead of metal. This design of course, is what prevents clicking.
The inside of each pick is lightly abraded, which in addition to the unique wraps, helps prevent the picks from slipping off. The picks come in three sizes, small, medium and large: and in nickel silver and brass.
