Our standard mizrabs are simple steel wires. They are just right for nearly everybody.
Mizrab standard: 1 € EU / 0.84 € non-EU

We also offer mizrabs with flexible plastic coating for people with sensitive fingers. The plastic softens the mizrab's pressure on the finger, but also makes it a bit more unstable.
Mizrab rubber: 1 € EU / 0.84 € non-EU

Double anchor mizrabs have a double wire for better stability of the mizrab on the finger.
Mizrab double anchor: 2 € EU / 1.68 € non-EU

Wound mizrabs are more comfortable than standard ones for people with sensitive fingers. The winding softens the mizrab's pressure on the finger, but also makes it a bit more unstable.
Mizrab wound: 2 € EU / 1.68 € non-EU

The perfect mizrab should fit the finger pretty tight; it is not supposed to move or slip at all while playing. On the other hand it should not hurt or injure the finger either. Therefore it is often helpful to carefully bend the mizrab in order to mould its shape to the individual finger.
