Clover Fluted Rubber Grip Nickel Plated Brass Thimbles
Plush design, comfy fit

Fluted rubber sleeve provides secure gentle grip.

Why Choose these Thimbles?
Known in the sewing community as the Protect And Grip Thimble, this product sports an ingenious fluted rubber sleeve that expands to fit your finger. The fluted sleeve is designed to provide a secure gentle grip that keeps your fingers cool.

The lightweight nickel plated brass cap is crimped to the rubber. So this product will probably shine when not in competition with other strong instruments. Not sure how long these thimbles will last under intense performances. I hope you will post a review to let us know how these plush babies perform in the trenches.

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.

5 of 5 great item great idea! May 13, 2013
Reviewer: Stephen Tofano from Port Chester, NY United States  
These rubber grip thimbles are excellent.  Very comfortable, you don't even notice your wearing them.
They don't slip and produce a much softer sound than the heavier thimbles.  
I like a combo of  two of these with one or two heavier thimbles at the same time for a larger range of playing sounds and fingering options.
