Friends, I'm searching for some saddle thumb picks. They used to be available at saddlethumbpicks.com, but appear to have gone out of business. I love these and just cant find them anywhere. Does anyone have an old stash they would sell me? They're the only ones that work for me ??
There's a Facebook page, but it look to me like the last activity was Sept. 2013. https://www.facebook.com/Saddle-Thumb-Picks-323958297734793/
I never tried his thumb picks, but I like the finger picks very much. Sorry I can't help.... Good luck in your search.
@crishergirl - their Facebook page was last updated in 2013, so my guess is that they're long gone. I had a root round, and couldn't find anything directly comparable, but these thumb picks from Perfect Touch Picks might be worth a go. They don't have the ratchet adjustment of the Saddle Thumb Pick, but their three separate metal bands might work for you. According to their website, both the Cyborg (upper picture) and the Grifter (lower picture) thumb picks are priced at $14. They have dealers in Sea Tac, WA, and Red Bank, TN, if that's within reach.

HTH, and best regards,
PS - I don't have any connection with the company or its dealers, but in case anyone this side of the Pond is interested, they have a dealer in Germany (Martin's Musik Kiste, in Kaltenkirchen), and England (Eagle Music, in Huddersfield).
