Any issue with these things being too loose or tight on the fingers?HNLim wrote:Just gotten my butterfly. Didn't have much time to test it but the initial result is impressive. The treble sound is definitely clearer, louder and more brilliant. Not metallic sounding at all. I didn't have time to read through the instruction to fine-tune it to my fingers. It should be easy to get used to it.
Will make another comments after some time when I fine-tune it and get used to it.
Let's put things in perspective. For those who are blessed with nice finger tip and strong thick nails, you might just prefer the natural way. For those with weak nails or poor finger tip profile, the butterfly should in my opinion be the better option. As for me, I am comfortable with both, I like the strong and brilliant treble sound with the butterfly.robin loops wrote:And how do they sound? And do they feel 'solid' (no movement when striking notes)?
I only saw them on e - b a y recently and decided to try them out. I am buying additional sets most likely with three different colours so that I do not get confused which butterfly for which finger. I am taking some time to decide because the coloured butterfly are made of aluminium as opposed to the first set I got which is copper and harder. I should be placing an order next week.Sean Eric Howard wrote:HNLim, It sounds like you like them so far. How long have these things been around, anyway?
