New To Tiptonic Finger Picks?

The Tiptonic Starter Kit is Strongly Recommended if you are new to Tiptonic Picks. The Starter Kit includes an Activator Case and a Sizing Chart so that you can dial in your perfect picks. The adhesive is stiff at room temperature and doesn’t adhere to the nail as well as when warmed. The Activator warms the adhesive up and holds it at the perfect temperature indefinitely until you are ready to put them on. This rejuvenates the adhesive and allows it to be reused dozens of times. Many people get around 6 weeks or more of daily use before the pick and the adhesive begin to wear out. Reordering your picks is easy and we offer volume discounts on 4 or more of the same size!

The Activator Case

The Activator Case rejuvenates the adhesive so that it can be reused over and over again. It’s is also a great place to keep up to 7 picks stored and ready for the next gig. Place your Tiptonic Finger Picks back in the Activator when you finish playing to store them until you need them again.

    I am SO HAPPY with the sound and feel of these picks. I have been a frequently frustrated guitar player, as it is almost impossible for me to maintain a full set of natural unbroken nails. Just as I get them all to the right length to make playing really satisfying, one of them develops that little nick on the side, and then no matter what I do – filing, crazy glue, vitamin supplements – it’s a goner. I’ve tried going to a salon for acrylic and gel nails, which were great for playing, but they destroyed my real nails and left them paper thin. I’ve tried finger picks as well, but…no, they’re nothing like a real nail. They come off the wrong side of the finger and curve in the wrong direction.
    The tiptonics have the natural playing feel of a salon gel or acrylic, but without destroying the real nail. Best of both worlds.

    These picks really work! Used acrylics for 20 years, really damaging my nails, luckily I discovered Tiptonics. They work as advertised, follow the excellent manual and you should be as amazed as I am. Painstaking design work, great customer service, great end result. I am grateful!

    Congratulations on your product; you nailed it!

    I am a lifelong guitar player and a fingerstyle player for most of that time. As my fingerstyle technique improved over the years, like many guitarists, I have been searching for fingerpicks that feel the most natural. I think this is the “Holy Grail” for fingerstyle players.

    Artificial (salon) nails, etc. were never a practical solution for me since I do not make my living playing guitar, and my own nails were never up to the task. In recent years I have been using Alaska piks with the tops cut off and filed to minimize the “pick bulk” on my fingers as much as possible. These have worked well but they still have some pick bulk.

    When I first read about your product, I have to admit that I was skeptical – this is a hard problem to solve. When I received the nail chart and subsequently the starter kit I could appreciate the quality and extent of the research and development to arrive at this product.

    With the nail chart I was able to identify my nail shapes; when I received the starter kit and tried the nails I was off by a millimeter (over) on my fingers so I really appreciated that +/- 1 millimeter nails were included in the starter kit. This saved a lot of trouble – and gave me confidence right away that the nails would work.

    The directions were excellent. I followed them carefully and I was able to put the picks on and take them off and the experience was exactly as described.

    I have been using them for a few weeks now and I love them. They are my nails – no pick bulk! And I can play with such feel and precision!

    American ingenuity at its best; I hope your company prospers. I am now a loyal customer.

    Please extend my appreciation and thanks to everyone who contributed to this product.
