This is our thumb pick in a size large. It is constructed using a custom designed stainless steel band and a 50/1000 of an inch(1.25mm) thick BlueChip pick. These picks are laser etched, professionally machined, and hand beveled to create the best thumb pick available.
Size compares to a standard large thumb pick of any brand.

I have been using Blue Chip flat picks for several years now. So when I recently decided to learn how to play the banjo, I naturally had to "try out" the Blue Chip thumb pick. I wear an x-large glove size , but the "Large" sized thumb pick fit my big thumb nicely. The blade length works well for me, and the material in which the blade is made feels virtually frictionless against the strings.

I've purchased at least 6 bluechip thumb picks and you'd be hard pressed to find a smoother material. If there is any negative, it's that you can't shorten the blade length yourself without introducing a scratchy sound. At least I've not been able to. One reason is they put a beveled edge on it. But to Matt's credit at Bluechip, they are always willing to customize to your desire and are great to work with. Very quick to respond to any question or request. Customer Service is where I separate vendors. Matt and his team do a GREAT job!

Slipped on, fit perfectly. Brings fine bright tones from my banjo

I like the design and fit
The tone (I play dobro) is good but still not as clean and sharp as the pro pik (which doesn't fit as snug/tight as the blue chip).
Can't understand why since the material is supposed to be the same

I have watched as my friends buy all sorts of picks and in the end they spent more than what one of these cost to start with. I have enjoyed mine since I purchased mine and it has been the only one I have needed for all my playing. Just can't beat quality.

I've used plastic thumb picks in the past. They were just okay. This thumb pick fits snug and comfortably. I'm able to get great volume on my guitar's ithe bass notes and quicker response, ttoo.
Highly recommend it.

This thumb pick is the best banjo accessory that I've ever purchased. The pick is comfortable but more importantly is streamlined compared to traditional plastic thumbpicks. And an added bonus is that it improves the sound of my banjo (Huber) dramatically, if that's possible. It's well worth the investment.

I'm new to banjo playing. A little over a year now. The pick I had before was only 6 months old and was worn down. Someone recommended Blue Chip so I got one. Had it for a year now and hardly any wear on it at all and it just slides smoothly across strings. I like it so much that I bought another one in case I lose it or misplace it. Definately recommend getting one.

early days, it takes time to get used to a new thumb pick, it seems to be shaping up ok. very expensive compared to other picks so you must look after it and not lose it to get the benefit of a long life of playing with it.
