Recessed "Quilter" Nickel Plated Steel Thimbles
Strong medium weight thimbles at a bargain price


Recessed "quilter" nickel plated steel thimbles offer you strength and medium weight, plus they resist corrosion.

Why Choose these Thimbles?
Delivers Solid Tone
Quilter thimbles sport a sunken top instead of the standard dome. This provides a reinforced rim at the business end of the thimble that discerning washboard players prefer instead of a spherule cupola shape.

Washboard Players Like Them
I was curious why some players prefer the quilter thimbles. So I grabbed a handful of Quilter and Standard thimbles and ran a quick test on my Zinc King #703 washboard. What was the outcome? Frankly, I didn't notice a heck of a lot of difference between the two kinds of thimbles. Maybe the quilter thimbles produced a somewhat sharper "attack" than ordinary dome thimbles. But I'm not a washboard pro, so I really can't say for sure. If you are fan of quilter thimbles I hope you will post a review.

In any event, some players most definitely prefer quilter thimbles, which is why they are now part of the inventory. So if you are among those players who prefer quilter thimbles, or if you are curious why other washboard players like quilter thimbles so much, then these thimbles are for you.
