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.

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

  2. BCT-JDM - banjo thumb pick 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 16th Mar 2023

    Can highly recommend.
    Excellent construction and fits well. The tilt in the thumb wrap of the pick is great. Im not worrying about my pick sliding around in the middle of playing.
    Its a bit pricey...I know...but...now that I have it...not going back.

  3. My 3rd one 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 5th Dec 2022

    My friends asked me why I purchased a pricey thumb pick, for me because it is high quality and I feel it is part of my body, I could control it naturally without too much tension or looseness on my thumb. I mostly use it on my acoustic and classical guitar.

    I lost my last thumb pick which I used in the last two year, so I have to repurchase it again.

    P.S. They have a few models and each model has different sizes, it is better to ask their support team before you purchase.

  4. My personal holy grail for fingerstyle 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 16th Nov 2022

    I've been using this pick for 2 years and nothing else comes close. Since then, it hasn't worn at all and only needs slight adjustments once in a blue moon. If you're into the Merle Travis, Chet Atkins, or Tommy Emmanuel style, this will not just give you great feel, but a great flare to your artistry as well.

  5. Nothing Better 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 11th Oct 2022

    I’ve played a lot of picks. Nothing pulls tone from an instrument better. Nothing outlasts these picks. I like other picks, but Blue Chip picks are the best there is PERIOD

  6. last pick for me 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 22nd Aug 2022

    I first became aware at banjo thon when this pick was being
    Tested..tried it and immediately didn’t like it…but once the JD blade was introduced I tried one a few years later and it’s perfect,very stable fit in your thumb for the best control and the “blue chip” material is very balanced and smooth when using metal Hoffmeyer picks( best finger picks) and I alternate from banjo to pedal steel and the blue chip works just as well when playing it also…I have several…ok more than several don’t ever want to “run” out..and customer service is exemplary, well done!

  7. Attack, tone. fast & comfort 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 14th Mar 2022

    Great picks with attack and tone and not as deep as cheaper picks so faster and better note separation. Can't really adjust so I bought both large and medium; medium seems to work best (long, thin fingers). Teamed with Shelor finger picks; work great together and can play for hours without hangnails or pain.

  8. Such a step up from typical plastic thumb picks 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 14th Feb 2022

    I was skeptical to spend the money for a JDM and set on making due with out of the plastic box at the music store thumb picks. A friend recommended I buy one and I'm glad for the extra push to do so. I can't be happier. The fit, the working length of the pick, the hardness of the pick for tone, that it is well built and meant to last means the hardest thing I have to do is not to misplace it! Worth every penny.

  9. wonderful customer service 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 17th Jan 2022
