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. Thumbpick 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 10th Jan 2018

    May have needed to get a large size instead of a medium. Will try for awhile. Also, need to get used to the length of the pick, larger than the plastic one I had been using.
    Love the tone it gives compared to a plastic pick which started to scratch after awhile and the need to slather it with Vaseline every week or so.

  2. Can’t Beat It 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 26th Nov 2017

    I started up my banjo as soon as my Blue Chip arrived. It took me 30 seconds to realize it fit perfect and I will never use another pick again. Just can’t beat it.. top quality.. light.. no string noise .. makes me a better banjo man.

  3. Take your picking to a new level! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 6th Nov 2017

    High quality well designed comfortable pick. I play Scruggs style 5 string banjo. The unique shape improved my sound and speed and accuracy! As comfy as the 1 model is. Not quite the "reach" as the 1 model. It has a shorter snugger feel when contacting my 5 strings. Don't be a cheap ass and buy BlueChip picks! A small investment in your passion...

  4. I love this pick 5 Star Review

    Like how feels and love how it sounds

  5. No other choice for great tone and fit 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 31st Aug 2017

    Love the Blue Chip thumb pick tone from the first one I bought - several years ago now. They last forever, and you can easily adjust the metal loop to fit your thumb - that was a huge selling point for me. They fit, and they don't stretch while you're playing.

  6. Best Pick Ever! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 14th Jul 2017

    I have never been completely satisfied with either a plastic thumb pick or a metal thumb pick, but your pick suits me perfectly. I will never use anything else. In fact, I have bought several extra just in case you decide to stop manufacturing them. Thanks for an excellent pick!


  7. Only rated 5 stars because 10 wasn't an option 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 16th May 2017

    These offer total comfort for as long as you wish to keep them on, and the harder you pick, the more they seem to tighten. Also, the material used in the plastic part of the pick, produces maximum tone without any scratching, and they slip off the strings unlike anything I've ever experienced before. I've been searching for these for over 50 years!

  8. Awsome Thumbpick 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 8th May 2017

    I've been using Bluechip thumbpicks playing banjo for a while. The JD Crowe pick is comfortable and stays in place and it does produce a clear tone. Well worth the purchase price. Rick Denning "Kinetic Grass "

  9. Because I Can 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 23rd Sep 2016

    The best playing thumbpick ever seems to go with the most expensive ever. I'm on my 4th one. Yes, the tips DO wear, albeit about 10 times slower than any conventional plastic thumbpick. I have sent two of them after heavy use to Bluechip. They politely polished the tips back to original shape leaving the pick only slightly shorter than the original. (No, I do not touch the abrasive banjo head with my thumb pick. The wear is simply from draging across the strings.)
    Will I continue buying them? Yes!
    Why? Right now, "Because I Can!"
    And they DO play really nice!

  10. hesitant at first, then I fell headfirst into the blue-chip swimming pool 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 14th Sep 2016

    I was very hesitant on spending $40 for a thumb pick, but once I used it I have grown to like it very much. The design of the pick is very well put together and it is very sturdy. It has increased my playing speed and it fits a lot more comfortable on my thimb. I play a lot of shows outdoors and those plastic thumb picks want to slide around on my thumb on those hot Days and I have to change them periodically. But with the blue-chip pick, it stays where I put it . Great product . Now if you guys can come up with a finger pick that stays where you put it I will be set. But remember you have to give me a discount for giving you the idea ha ha
