Diamond pattern detail
What is a Diamond Pattern Thimble?
The design is similar to our once popular and all-time favorite Heavy Nickel Plated Brass "England" Thimbles. They are not as heavy as the "England" style, but still quite excellent premium quality thimbles.

Why Choose Brass Dome-Top Thimbles?
If you want thimbles that generate a lower tone than steel; won't gouge ruts as fast as hard steel will into a vintage brass, zinc, or tin rubbing surface; resist corrosion and do not rust, then these thimbles are for you.

Selection Tip
Brass thimbles are best for these washboards:
How Many Thimbles do you Need?
The number of thimbles you need for each hand is a personal preference. Most players use 3 thimbles (index, middle and ring fingers). Others add a 4th thimble to their pinky. Many prefer just 2 thimbles (index and middle fingers). Some players use just one thimble (typically index or middle finger). However, many players use 4 thimbles on their fingers, plus a large 5th thimble (typically 18 mm to 20 mm) on their thumb for a "full-house" of 5 thimbles. 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.
