Product Description

This is our JD Crowe thumb pick in a size large. This pick was designed by JD Crowe and constructed to his very exacting specifications. The BCT-JDL is the exact pick that JD uses. The pick bears JD's initials on the inside between the rivets. 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.

    Love this pic. Have let two fellow banjo players try mine and they both ordered their own immediately. Brings your playing up a notch.

  2. TD 50 Attached To Large Band 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 25th Oct 2016

    Customized large band with TD-50 pick. I modified the pick to be a bit shorter and gave it a right hand speed bevel. From the top of the pick that's connected to the band to the tip; measures 31/32". I like to ride the bottom of the band slightly below the edge of the thumb cuticle. This gives me the feel of a flat pick while opening up to finger style. I guess it's fair to say, "I'm getting closer to the ultimate thumb pick that sounds and feels amazing." I have two more customized Blue Chip Thumb Picks that are a 50 and 60 thickness that mimic the Fred Kelly Slick Pick which are my go to. I like and own the TD-50, TP-50, and TP-1R 60. Now that I'm invested with the Blue Chip Company maybe they will give me a free pick of my choice for Christmas. No ones laughing...I'm dead serious! Say it again Goober Pyle...

  3. Fingerpickin Good 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 7th Oct 2016

    The JD Banjo thumb pick improves sound/tone a lot, compared to my plastic pick. Shorter blade is perfect for me. Fit is good (Large), but my thumb shape leaves a bit of a gap in upper band. Service was fast and excellent.

  5. Best Thumb Pick I've Ever Had 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 31st Mar 2016

    I have been playing banjo for about 6 years. I've experimented with quite a few different thumb picks but could never really settle on one. I read about Blue Chips on many forums and found a lot of people were raving about them. I bought a JDL along with the Sammy Shelor finger picks. As soon as I put them on I could feel the difference in how they fit my fingers. Then I began picking my banjo and I could hear the difference in tone. My banjo is pretty loud and with the other picks I used the tone almost seemed annoying at times. With the JDL and Shelor picks the tone has been smoothed out and because of this I play my banjo a lot more. Keep up the good work!

  9. Incredible Good! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 11th Jan 2016

    I was playing famous brand plastic picks on my 5-String for nearly 27 years and they been ok since now. I gave the Thumb Pick a try and was very impressed of it. It fits my fat thumb perfectly, plays pretty easy and fast, the sound is awesome. I won't miss it. Although a lot of people say it's far too expensive (I also have to pay Import fees), it was worth and i won't miss it. I hope it lasts long and won't brake at the rivet holes.

  10. Pricy but worth every penny! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 5th Jan 2016

    After all is considered, the quality of this product is worth every penny. Just consider a thumb pick that finally gives up and breaks in a couple of pieces. Not gonna happen with this one. Or that thumb pick that loosens to.the point of almost spinning around on your thumb in the middle of a song. Not gonna happen.
    And finally, comfort. Once you get it like you want it, it stays that way- every time. Won't cut off circulation to your thumb like that favorite plastic one. Wish they didn't wear out, but they do. Takes a long time and alot of tunes, though. Like I said, Worth Every Penny !
