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. Love this pick 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 2nd Feb 2019

    I love how this pick fits, but more importantly, I love the crisp sound. Worth the price!!

  2. Nice pick, but didn't work for me 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 10th Dec 2018

    Very well made and should be comfortable, but didn't really work for me. The large fits OK, but is a little bit looser than I'd like, but the medium doesn't come close to fitting so, the large is my only option. Also, the pick blade is much longer than I like, so I filed it down so it didn't extend so far past the edge of my thumb. Which was easy enough to do, but once I'd done, the rivets that hold the blade in place were too close to the new edge I'd created and I'd catch the rivet on the strings. Great pick if it works for you, but it doesn't for me.

  3. Perfect fit, great sound 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 1st Nov 2018

    Wish I bought this thumb pick long ago and after using it I don't think I'd be able to go back to what I was using before. It is on the pricey side but definitely worth it.

  4. Great Thumb Pick 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 30th Jun 2018

    This is a great pick. I have been using it for a few months. It is comfortable, but had to bend it a little to snug it up to fit my thumb. Now it fits the way I like it and feels great on my thumb. It gives a clean, crisp sound without string scratch. Now that I have gotten used to it my picking seems to have gotten a little better.

  5. Metal part 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 25th Jun 2018

    The metal part on the large thump pick could be a bit thicker and have more spring to it. I play banjo for the Band Prairie Grass and in the summer my thumb sweats and there is some move of the pick. ( festival temp was 104 deg. Had to use gorilla snot to stabilize it. Has good tone and balanced sound with the silver finger picks.

  6. Best Thumb Pick you can buy! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 21st May 2018

    This thumb pick is fantastic. I play a lot of Travis-picking finger-style guitar, and use a thumb pick w/ two metal finger picks like a banjo player.

    I've tried all kinds of different shapes, sizes, materials and this one is the best. You get the strength and comfort of the metal around your thumb, but the nice round tone of the Blue Chip material against the strings. Perfect combo, super comfortable, great tone. Buy this.

  7. I was not impressed at first, BUT... 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 12th May 2018

    I have a couple of BlueChip flat picks, and when I decided to up my acoustic fingerpicking game I figured the JD would be worth a shot. At first, I had a hard time getting used to it; I probably spent a week playing with the fit since it didn't feel as snug as I liked. But I soon figured out that these are a whole different ballgame than the typical plastic thumb pick and I needed to realign my thinking. I realized that I get the same amount of control without needing a super-snug fit, which has resulted in fewer hangnails and a happier thumb overall. That, combined with the smooth tone and great responsiveness makes it pretty much impossible for me to go back to the usual plastic thumb pick.

  8. Nice pick a little pricey 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 10th Apr 2018

    This is a very nice pic very comfortable but I still get a little scratching noise with this pic. Another pic I really like is pro pic that is a very comfortable pick but I believe it is a little more noisey than the JD Blue Chip.

  9. Great pick 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 18th Mar 2018

    I like my pick a lot. The only thing is maybe I should have gotten a medium instead of a large.It works ok and feels good but does slide around my finger a little.

  10. Different, but in a good way! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 16th Mar 2018

    These feel really different compared to your average thumb pick. They don’t fit snug but they don’t slide around your thumb like they’re loose. I didn’t need to bend it to fit. I’ve been using the Fred Kelly slick picks for quite a while now before getting the BC Thumbpick. Just comes down to getting used to that loose feel. But I can really power down on the strings and the pick stays put! Also, it doesn’t catch on the string when I do play heavy! You gotta try a $40 thumb pick at least once in your life.
