So, I was looking through my drawers a couple months ago, and found this really weird looking thing that I think is a pick. it's branded "National", and it made of the same color and texture material as my national white plastic thumbpicks, so I think it's fairly safe to assume it's made by the same company. But for the life of me I cannot find anything about it online, or where to buy it. And nobody I know can give me a model number, name, or even say they've seen anything like it before. Maybe you guys can.

Here's a pic:

That is an unrolled thumb pick, though I don't know how they (or you) got it to lay flat. Heated possibly? Either way, that's what it is.

^ That's what I was thinking too. I've seen bass picks that look like this, so you can hold onto them better.

Do you know where I could buy more? I am unable to find this information on the internet.

If worst comes to worst, is it possible to make my own from a regular thumb pick? The thing contours perfectly to my hand.

Conventional (ie internet) wisdom indicates that dropping a standard thumbpick in boiling water for a few seconds will make it malleable. Then you should be able to unroll it and it will stay. To ensure the shape remains the same, quench the pick in ice water after the unrolling.

Note: Boiling water is hot. It can burn you, so be careful. Additionally, stuff that comes out of boiling water is hot, so use pliers for handling and unrolling.

Alright, thanks. I'm still not sure where I got it, and if that's actually how it was made. It contours perfectly to my finger, and I don't believe thestandard national pick would have that contour.

I was under the impression that regular thumb and finger picks were usually used to play autoharp. That, and I don't believe national makes autoharp picks.

Could be wrong, though.
