Product Description

This is our JD Crowe thumb pick in a size medium. 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 medium thumb pick of any brand.

  1. Best Banjo Thumb Pick 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 31st May 2019

    This is my second J D Crow Thumb Pick for a second banjo and case. This Thumb Pick stays in place all night long.

  2. It's a great sounding Pick. 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 3rd Apr 2019

    This is a great sounding pick. Feels good except for I have to jam it on tighter than I was expecting so it doesn't spin, so it cuts off some circulation like most thumbpicks.
    I like the fact that the band it doesn't hook accidently on any of the strings. I highly recommend it, I am glad I purchased it.

  3. Excellent 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 29th Mar 2019

    I've been looking for a new thumb pick to replace the National I've been using for a while..my problem with this and previous thumb picks is that it would not stay in place and sometimes the bottom would catch on a string.
    This new pick from Blue Chip fits comfortably, doesn't move and has nothing to catch onto the strings. Additionally, the length of the pick matches what I had on the National so I didn't have to adapt to a new pick. This is in distinction to metal picks I got from Deering, which were much shorter.
    The Blue Chip are pricier, but I think well worth the extra money
    It may be just mental, but I think my playing has improved with these new picks

  4. Best Thumbpick Available 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 21st Feb 2019

    Lightweight, strong, long lasting, and clear awesome sound. No slipping on thumb or pick noise most picks have from scrubbing the strings...I have used one of these exclusively for 12 years and it still works, just got the extra to keep in a different case... highly recommend from an experienced 27 year picker.

  5. Mostly satisfied 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 18th Jan 2019

    I enjoy the picks and think they are great. The issue I had was with the website and placing my order for the CT 55 picks. I wanted to have them personalized for gifts. I was sure that one of the picks was to have Kerry on it and the other Breezer. When they arrived, they both had Kerry Breezer on them which is not what I wanted. When I called customer service, I was assured it was my mistake. I guess I have to write it down as an expensive mistake.

  6. warranted a change after 20+ years 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 17th Jan 2019

    Heard good things, so I decided to try it out and have now switched likely for good. Response is snappy. Could even compensate for a weak thumb. Has nearly the same tone as my stainless fingerpicks. I previously used the same thumb picks for over 20 years and loved them, but upon trying almost immediately decided to switch.

  7. great customer service 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 8th Jan 2019

    I bought this for my boyfriend who is a bluegrass player. He already had the flat pick to go along with it. He was thrilled to receive it which, in turn, thrills me!

    The customer service was great- there was a mistake on the order that I noticed after I placed it so I emailed them and they straightened everything out for me!

  8. Amazing Pick! 5 Star Review

    An amazing piece of work! the bevel is excellent!

  9. So much better than the rest! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 3rd Jul 2018

    The comfort and clarity that come from this pick is so much better than the rest it's not even fair to compair others to it. I've used and loved BlueChip flat picks since the companies early days and somehow this pick still manages to thrill and amaze me. It's a class act all the way... don't think, just order one.

  10. Amazing Pick! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 29th May 2018

    This thumb pick sits at the exact angle I need it to and doesn't move! Ever!. It is the perfect pick, I used zookies with the angle on them for about a couple years. But now use the JD Crowe Blue chip thumb pick and will never use another thumb pick again!
