  1. Great! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 21st May 2024

    The thumb pick will not loosen due to the heat of your fingers. The banjo sound is very clear.
    For guitars, it is smooth and reduces the picking noise of wound strings when microphoned.

  4. Most comfortable & functional thumbpick 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 23rd Feb 2024

    I love this pick. It is the best length for the way I pick, and is very smooth and quiet on the strings. It is the most comfortable thumb pick I’ve ever used. Totally worth the cost.

  7. Takes a lickin’ and keeps on pickin’ ! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 17th Jul 2023

    The gold standard for banjo thumb picks. I’m now on my 4th or 5th. They do eventually wear out and lose their shape but I’d go through 100 traditional plastic picks in the same time. I’m a heavy handed player and really dig in. The combination of the metal band and pick material gives me better control and consistent tone. And the longevity makes the price reasonable for me over time.

  8. Great sound! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 28th Jun 2023

    I’m relatively new to banjo (3 months in), and had been using the DAddario Classic Celluloid thumb & finger picks (medium). I noticed recently that the DAddario thumb pick was often making scraping noises when I hit the strings in a particular angle, so I looked for a high quality thumb pick, and after some research, I felt that this BCT-JDM would be a good upgrade. When I got my BCT-JDM, I noticed it was a little big on me, so I added some sticky note + duct tape on the inside and now it fits perfectly. It also sounds amazing! No scraping noise at all at any angle, and I’ve been playing with it for like 2 weeks now.

  9. Bluechip 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 24th Jun 2023

    I am writing this to say thank you to you and all your team for your attention to detail and commitment. I have played a guitar for over 20 years and i'm now the proud 3 week old father of a banjo. I bought a set of plastic finger and thumb picks when i ordered the banjo and i've already had the finger picks overheat and deform off to a slanted side while burning in rolls. I had seen the great reviews you have gotten for your style and workmanship on picks so i placed my order and i've really enjoyed watching the delivery tracking all across America to Ireland. I love these picks. They can be quiet, soft and melodic then a change in my finger attack brings the noise! It took 2 days to shape them to my fingers properly and now i'm kicking myself because i never ordered flatpicks for my guitar (she's silently glaring at me now out of lack of attention). Anyway i just wanted to say thank you. I appreciate what you are doing and i wish you a happy and a rewarding life.

    Was hesitant to purchase due to cost, but I am super satisfied. No pick noise on the strings and extremely comfortable!
