My left-handed missus is taking up the autoharp but we've discovered that none of the right-handed thumb picks in the house will work for her. Any suggestions on where to find a left-handed thumb pick?

I googled left handed thumb pick and there were numerous options, including Dunlop, Pro-pik and Blue Chip. So pretty much any price range.

Thanks for the information.  It sounds like we need to do some research into the evolution of thumbpicks.  At least my stash of fingerpicks from the 1970s will do the job.

If you can't find any from our vendors here on the Hangout......

Here's a list of a dozen or more at Amazon. Maybe you can find one you like.

Lots of left-handed choices.
Why the research?

Thanks, all, for your helpful responses.

It seems that the logical search for "left-handed thumb pick" produces lots of results, but the displayed choices include lots of right-hand picks mixed in without clear labeling.

I don't use fingerpicks very often anymore, but I recall the last time I bought a thumbpick it cost fifty cents or so. Are the $14 thumbpicks that much improved? Or has the world gone mad?

I think everything has gone up in the last few years, so why are you surprised that thumb picks have? You don't have to buy the expensive ones, there are picks that will work just as well for a lot less. Just purchase to fit your budget.
