A couple of years ago I bought a clear see-through thumbpick made from a soft plastic. Unlike your regular Jim Dunlops the surface has a texture that slightly gives if pressed with a fingenail. The tone is warm compared to normal thumbpicks and I would love to be able to
find some more. Usual Google/Ebay searches havent worked so far.

Fred Kelly's "Bumblebee" pick has that softness, as well as being rotatable and usable as a flatpick equally easily.

Elderly has them among others.

The Bumblebee is an excellent pick. It gives a very bright, clear tone. Recommended.

I'll try one of those for sure, but I'm actually looking for a soft mellow tone.

I have some see-through thumbpicks in my collection, but they have no name on them, darn it.

However, I also have even softer thumbpicks made by National. They are dark brown and translucent. I call them my 'maple syrup picks' because of their soft, mellow tone.

If you can't find what you want, you might look for the Nationals. I believe they are widely distributed.
