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. Thumb pick 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 22nd Oct 2021

    I’ve been playing all my life and have used a lot of thumb picks but this is by far the best one I’ve ever used. I fist started using this around two years ago and it’s all I use. With my Signature picks and the
    blue chip thumb pick I get the best sound out of my banjo and guitar.

  2. Solid, secure and quiet 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 16th Aug 2021

    I use this mostly for fingerstyle guitar; it's quieter than the thumb picks I had been using and stays on securely without squeezing my thumb uncomfortably. Because it feels more solid and secure, I'm more confident in attacking the strings, get more volume and pop. So I ordered another, just in case.

  3. Can't go wrong 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 17th May 2021

    My Banjo teacher recommended these thumb picks. I love em! Fits like a glove~

  4. Just won't fit; too long 3 Star Review

    Posted by on 6th May 2021

    First off, I've played banjo for 44 years. Scruggs, Reno, melodic styles, lots of single-string stuff. I use Golden Gate thumb picks. Two things are deal breakers with this pick: the blade is too long and the metal + plastic (or whatever it is) just doesn't fit well for me. It pinches a bit at the open end and doesn't go onto my thumb as much as I'm used to. It does have a good, completely scratch-free sound, but I wish it fit better.

  5. superior quality. not right for me 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 29th Jan 2021

    Wanted to love this but just not the right thumb pick for. Excellent quality and probably the most comfortable fitting thumb pick I’ve ever used. However the blade sits a little farther back on my thumb than I prefer and the metal the pick is riveted to extends a bit to far on the bottom, scraping the strings. It’s an amazing pick and I’m a huge fan of bluechip flat picks but this one doesn’t suit my finger style unfortunately.

  6. Most comfortable, great tone! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 26th Jan 2021

    I love these picks. Fits my thumb perfectly. I haven't had any issue with them sliding off. And, the tone is great!

  7. I wish I'd known about these years ago! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 5th Oct 2020

    I've been using the Blue Chip for only about a month and I love them, so much so, that I ordered another as a back-up. I never thought 'd ever spend $40 [about $52 Canadian] for only 1 thumb pick but they are more than worth it! The fit is so comfortable and the sound is superb. Buy one, you will never regret it!

  8. fits good. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 22nd Jul 2020

    This thumb pick fits alot better than the plastic picks. Its going to take a lot of practice before I can use this pick the way I want.

  9. Best thumb pick in 50 years 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 28th May 2020

    Wished I had learned of these picks years ago. Tired of going through Dunlops, my previous favorite, that seem to shorten after two or three sessions. This one fits well, stays put, doesn't diminish in length, and the tone is just right on all three strings (G, D, G). Worth every penny. You won't be disappointed.

  10. Quality product at a quality price 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 5th May 2020

    This is a well constructed and engineered thumb pick that I expect will outlast most of the others I use. I was able to file it down to a size I prefer and it’s very comfortable to play. It’s expensive for sure, but durable and effective.
