  1. 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 .

  2. 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.

  3. 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

  4. 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!

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. BlueChip (J D Crowe version) Thumpick Review 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 11th Jul 2016

    I was reluctant to spend $40 for a thumb pick, but I kept seeing gread reviews on it, so I bit the bullet and bought one. I couldn't be more pleased. I likely have at least 10 plastic thumb picks, but I doubt if I'll ever use one of those again so long as I have this one. I've had it about a month now, and have not had one regret. I watch a lot of videos, and I now notice many of the pros have one. When I first got mine, I'd ordered a "medium", but it took a large, and they were happy to exchange it for me. Good people to deal with.

  8. Best thumb pick ever! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 23rd Mar 2016

    The most durable, yet comfortable thumb pick ever! I've told many of my banjo playing buddies and they concur!

  9. A leap of faith 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 29th May 2015

    You gotta admit, it's a leap of faith to spend 40 bucks on a thumb pick. For years the Herco blue was my pick of choice until a friend showed me a Blue Chip flat pick. It was sufficiently impressive that I leapt and haven't regretted it. I don't know why it's better, but it is.

  10. Satisified thumb pick customer 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 4th Jan 2014

    I'm very happy with my thumb pick purchase. I've used plastic thumb picks for many years and this is my first metal band pick. With the plastic pick I was always worried it would break at the bend. No worries with this pick. Contrary to the webpage I purchased one size smaller than a plastic pick. I'm very happy I did, the pick was a bit too small but easy bent to the right size. One thing of note is that pick itself is small, about the width of a pencil. This took some time to get used to the different geometry of hitting the strings. Very happy customer.
