Thimbles for Musical Washboard
Vintage and hard-to-find thimbles for serious washboard musicians
Examine our growing collection of Aluminum, Brass, Steel, Horn, Wood, Plastic and Vintage thimbles that deliver the tone you need to make your washboard stand up and take notice.

How Many Thimbles do you Need?
The number of thimbles you need for each hand is a personal preference. Some players prefer just 2 thimbles (index and middle fingers). Most players use 3 thimbles (index, middle and ring fingers). Some add a 4th thimble to their pinky. And some add a large 5th thimble (usually 18mm or 19mm) to their thumb. You can achieve greater musical color with more thimbles than less. But the optimum number of thimbles depends on the musical genre, type of thimble (wood, plastic, metal, horn), your personal playing style, and ultimately - what works best for you.
