FARMINGDALE, New York – D'Addario is thrilled to announce that alongside the acquisition of Super-Sensitive Music String Company, D'Addario also acquired National Picks, the metal finger-pick that solidified itself as the industry standard.

Starting August 2021, the renowned finger-pick company will be branded as National Picks by D'Addario. Unchanged since their introduction in 1930, National Picks are made in the United States from various alloys to create a brilliant, vintage-American sound.

National Picks provide a smooth, comfortable, and fully adjustable fit, as well as a brilliant, finger-picking sound on an acoustic guitar or a plucky bite on a banjo.

In 1930, the United States Government issued a patent for National Picks that is proudly etched on the original models. Each pick's face also has the National logo and the U.S.A. make and model number etched for easy identification. All picks will continue to be manufactured in the U.S.A.

D'Addario will announce an updated assortment shortly.
