  1. already ordered a backup because I like it them so well 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 28th Nov 2016

    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.


  2. Hard to beat 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 7th Oct 2016

    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!


  3. best on the market 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 2nd Sep 2016

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


  4. snug fit 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 10th Aug 2016

    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


  5. best thumb pick I've owned 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 4th Jan 2016

    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.


  6. The best! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 11th Aug 2015

    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.


  7. superior product 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 8th Jul 2015

    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.


  8. so far so good 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 23rd Oct 2014

    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.


  9. A firecracker for your thumb 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 8th Apr 2014

    This pick is incredible, the thumb pops the strings so much better than any other picks I've used. I use stainless finger picks because of a nickel allergy and this pick really balances amazingly well with their brightness.


  10. Nice Tone! 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 11th Jan 2014

    I love the tone of the Blue Chip picks (both the BCT-1 and the JD version. The band is comfortable and doesn't cause me to lose blood circulation to my thumb either.

    My only complaint is the size of the striking area of the pick. For me...and I'm only talking about my personal tastes..it is a bit too big. I'm likely in the minority on that one, so please don't let it stop you from trying out the Blue Chip thumb picks...they are worth the money!
