Black Mountain Cole McBride


The Black Mountain thumb pick was invented by Cole McBride — a full time guitar teacher.

After playing hundreds of different guitar picks, he decided there was room for improvement. The idea of a spring led to a series of innovations that resulted in the Black Mountain, spring-loaded thumb pick. 

The Black Mountain thumb pick is now the favourite guitar pick of thousands of guitarists and is sold in music stores around the world!
