Hand-Crafted Tools To Stretch Your Sound
“The Funk Fingers have had a long and interesting history. After having them made here in Woodstock for a year, when the idea was new, I ceased producing them, thinking there were enough out there in the world. But last year, when Kevin introduced his improvements to the design, I was excited about how much better they are now to play bass with, and have given him my blessing to produce them with his design improvements. These are the Funk Fingers I'm using, and I think other players could do some wild things with them too.”

Tony Levin

April 2013
“Funk Fingers” are back, available again after many years through a license agreement with Tony Levin.
For anyone new to “Funk Fingers”, they are sticks strapped onto your 1st & 2nd fingers used to play electric bass to get a powerful attack and funky sound. FFs are length compensated for the difference in finger length, and have a stretch strap to attach to your fingers.
Tony Levin - Basses, Chapman Stick, (King Crimson, Stick Men,Peter Gabriel, Paul Simon, Pink Floyd, AWBH, John Lennon, Bowie and many more. Originally created Funk Fingers with his bass tech Andy Moore. Tony has this to say:
My original pair of Funk Fingers purchased from Tony's website in the late 1990s.
We are offering two different types, the “Original” just like the ones Tony sold through his website in the past. There is a second version “Funk Fingers” REDS that are different in that they are each about 4 grams heavier than the originals and painted red.

For those people who have the standard version, the reds can be spotted at a glance. In experimenting with the REDS design, I considered just using a denser heavier type of wood. What I discovered is that adding weight in the last third of the length furthest away from the finger is preferable to the entire length being heavier because of wood type. Each FF stick can vary in weight by a few grams anyway because of wood density variations within a tree. I decided on adding weight at the tip as it gives FFs a better feel and more control.
I do not want the reintroduction of "Funk Fingers" to adversely affect the value and collectability of the originals that Tony sold in the late 1990s. I therefore burn or ‘”brand” the Funk Fingers logo into the wood to differentiate the new from the old. The branding into the wood will not easily scrape off like ink could and will hopefully prevent anyone from misrepresenting the new ones as vintage. I have seen FFs sell for high prices on ebay a couple of times and I certainly don't want my work to devalue the originals. I have an original pair myself that I want to make sure keep their heritage.
Concerning original “Funk Fingers” sold by Tony Levin.
"Original Type": Just like those that Tony sold in the late 1990s, except that the logo is now burned in. $25
New "Red Type" Tony prefers and uses these currently! These have a little extra weight-about 4 grams each-added at the tip for better feel, more control and a little heavier attack. $30
