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.

  1. comfortable 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 26th Jan 2018

    Tone is similar to the clown puke picks maybe a little more muddy but I tend to play on the leading edge of the of the pick. Im sure angle of attack has alot to do with tone. The metal band is extremely comfortable and doesn't rotate on the thumb yet does not cut off blood flow. No more black thumb..

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

  3. 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...

  4. 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.

  6. 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!

  10. 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.
