  1. Wobble 3 Star Review

    Posted by on 28th Mar 2018

    I’m not really happy with this thumb pick. The metal portion does not adequately grip my thumb. I tried a large but it was too large. The medium would work if the metal section would hold its shape. Seems like the gauge is too light. The pick constantly rotate out of position. Love the flat picks but not happy with the thumb picks for guitar.

  2. Great New Thumbpick 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 27th Mar 2018

    I have recently purchased a BCT-1M thumb pick. I cannot say anything against this pick it's comfortable, fits nicely. It's so light that you forget that its on your thumb. While the pick is pricey, you get what you pay for and hitting the strings with this pick is outstanding in clarity. Another good reason to buy this pick is that's it's made in America .

  3. These thumbpicks work great for me 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 19th Feb 2018

    I know all this is subjective but wow these picks made a tremendous difference for me, a long-time beginner banjo player. A lot of the scratching I got from plastic picks of all sorts just magically disappeared when using these the very first time I tried them. So they are worth every penny I paid for them.

  4. It works but is pricey 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 2nd Aug 2016

    This thumb pick is the best that I have had. It does not catch on the strings, does not slip on my thumb, and is very durable. It produces a sound that I like with a minimum of scratch. The only complaint that I have is that they are pricey.

  5. BlueChip (J D Crowe version) Thumpick Review 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 11th Jul 2016

    I was reluctant to spend $40 for a thumb pick, but I kept seeing gread reviews on it, so I bit the bullet and bought one. I couldn't be more pleased. I likely have at least 10 plastic thumb picks, but I doubt if I'll ever use one of those again so long as I have this one. I've had it about a month now, and have not had one regret. I watch a lot of videos, and I now notice many of the pros have one. When I first got mine, I'd ordered a "medium", but it took a large, and they were happy to exchange it for me. Good people to deal with.

  6. Best thumb pick ever! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 23rd Mar 2016

    The most durable, yet comfortable thumb pick ever! I've told many of my banjo playing buddies and they concur!

  7. A leap of faith 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 29th May 2015

    You gotta admit, it's a leap of faith to spend 40 bucks on a thumb pick. For years the Herco blue was my pick of choice until a friend showed me a Blue Chip flat pick. It was sufficiently impressive that I leapt and haven't regretted it. I don't know why it's better, but it is.

  8. Satisified thumb pick customer 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 4th Jan 2014

    I'm very happy with my thumb pick purchase. I've used plastic thumb picks for many years and this is my first metal band pick. With the plastic pick I was always worried it would break at the bend. No worries with this pick. Contrary to the webpage I purchased one size smaller than a plastic pick. I'm very happy I did, the pick was a bit too small but easy bent to the right size. One thing of note is that pick itself is small, about the width of a pencil. This took some time to get used to the different geometry of hitting the strings. Very happy customer.

  9. A little suprised 3 Star Review

    Posted by on 18th Dec 2013

    I bought the JD Crow model thumb pick. I loved it at first, but over time the tip of the pick became flat. It's almost like it was filed down. I can only assume this is due to the tip of the pick rubbing against the head of my banjo while vamping. This happened only a few months after buying it, granted I had been playing a lot of back up. I thought it would have lasted a little longer. It didn't stop me from buying a replacement though because the picks are just that comfortable and sound that good.

  10. great pick but kinda pricey 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 9th Dec 2013
