  1. awesome results worth the price 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 24th Jun 2019

    I bought this thumbpick as a graduation gift to a young banjo player I pick with. When she tried it ought she immediately loved how it played and sounded and stopped using her plastic picks forever. My banjo-playing high school buddie from 50 years ago has been using a Bluechip for 20 some years now and won't use anything else. Matched with right instrument / setup Bluechips produce very little to no annoying pick noise. And of course that beveled edge allows the pick to just slide off the string with no resistance. Save up your bucks and buy one.


  2. Best thumb pick 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 4th Jun 2018

    Ordered my third blue chip thumb pick. The first one, a large, was a little big for me. The second, a medium, was just right once I opened it up a bit. They are fairly easy to bend and size to your thumb. But, I did wear the point off the second one on banjo and dobro. They still last longer and feel more secure and more reliable than any thumb pick I've used. They are not nearly as noisy as some thumb picks I've tried.


  3. Lives up to hype 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 8th May 2018

    I was skeptical at first and wondered why I had just spent $40 on a thumbpick but honestly, I’m very happy with my purchase. I use it for pedal steel and I really like the tactile function of the pick and the tone it allows you to create as a result. It kinda resonates so you can “feel” the note you just played compared to other often used cheaper brands. I’ve always felt the Dunlop and Goldtones to be sufficient yet kinda clunky (albeit significantly cheaper) and I would sometimes catch a string in the finger opening. The blue chip curls around to solve that issue. Overall, it’s sleek, feels nice when playing, and I will be using this pick as my top choice (and keep a close eye on it as replacing one is not cheap).


  4. 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.


  5. 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 .


  6. 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.


  7. Excellent 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 13th Nov 2017

    -Feels more stable on my thumb; lends confidence
    -Less "play" (e.g., slight rotation)
    -Lower or no friction sound (a.k.a. "noise") than trad. material
    -Satisfying "give" (flexibility factor)
    -No sacrifice re: sound, volume, tone
    -Slightly more "focused" sound
    -Very satisfied


  8. A new favorite thumb pick for banjo! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 6th Nov 2017

    I play Scruggs style 5 string and have tried many other brands of picks. This pick is well designed and sounds great! I bought this one as well as a JD. It has a different shape and longer "reach" than the JD. The fit of this pick is like no other out there. My thumb was in horrible shape with dry cracks from logging in cold weather all day and I came home to this pick...The comfort of this pick is real! If you like to pick a lot and want a clean sound then get this pick. I was a skeptic when I first found out about this pick company..."Wow! Those are expensive picks how good can they really be?" They are the best I have ever tried!


  9. Worth every penny 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 6th Nov 2017

    Yes, it might seem expensive - but I love this pick for all the reasons other reviewers have mentioned. The fit and tone are perfect for me. I play Dobro and Weissenborn, and I first tried the "Reso" model, which is slightly thicker. I prefer the tone of the standard one, and I've never had a problem with breakage. I recently got a new one because I couldn't stand the idea of losing my three-year-old one - but honestly, the old one shows hardly any wear despite heavy usage.


  10. 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.
