About Black Mountain Picks

The Black Mountain Thumb Pick was invented by Cole McBride — a full time guitar teacher.

He was looking for the perfect pick for his students as well as himself.  After playing hundreds of different picks, he decided there was room for innovation and he set out to invent a new kind of plectrum. 

He spent a lot of time experimenting with different designs, and then, the idea of a spring sprung into his mind!
