Product Description

This is our JD Crowe style dobro/resonator thumb pick in a size large. This is a slightly thicker blade design as compared to our banjo picks to withstand the more strenuous use on a dobro. It is constructed using a custom designed stainless steel band and a 60/1000 of an inch(1.50mm) 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. flawless 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 6th May 2021

    The only pick that truly stays on my thumb, even capable of upstrokes. The tone is remarkable, I wasn’t expecting the tone improvement I got. The fit and feel is second to none. This pick is sturdy. It made my pro piks feel like scrap metal. If the wear rate is anything like advertised, this pick is way way more than worth its price

    I ordered this same Thumb Pick a month or so ago and it improved my Reso Playing 100%. I did review the the first pick already and this is my second I ordered for a backup.

  3. not for me 2 Star Review

    Posted by on 25th Mar 2021

    I love blue chip flat picks. But this one doesn’t work for me. I catch the metal part on the string and I kind of hurts to hit the string with force. At least on dobro and guitar I did not like it. I’m going to try banjo, maybe it works there. I know some people like it but not for me.

  4. Unbelievable Thumb Pick #BCT-RESO-JDL 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 18th Mar 2021

    I am a Senior Beginner Reso Player taking online lessons through Peghead Nation. I have been using Dunlap 0.0225 finger picks with a fair amount of luck, but the National Large thumb picks I was using were a problem, uncomfortable & breaking at their bend etc. I Ordered this BCT-RESO-JDL Thumb Pick and it is amazing. My practice and playing has improved 90%. The new pick is feather light & comfortable and I do not feel it on after long periods of playing time. Thank You so much for your Contribution to the RESO playing experience... Gary C. Idaho

  5. Best thumb pick I have ever used! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 8th Mar 2021

    I play the electric 5-string bass and have always used a thumb pick. My picking thumb was shattered by a ground ball a dozen years ago, and the titanium rod in my thumb took a while to get used to.

    I have tried many styles and brands of thumb picks, and I have always liked Blue Chip picks. However, the JD version is clearly the best I have ever used. It is quiet, responsive and comfortable for long sessions. In my opinion, nothing else comes close.

  6. Best thumb pick 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 4th Mar 2019

    I'm 75 and after a lifetime of guitar picking, sidelined by left hand problems, I decided to give the Reso a go. I never used finger picks in all those years so that was a huge undertaking for me. I have tried 8 to 10 different thumb picks and had settled on a zookie L10. I kept studying and this JD BlueChip kept popping up so I ordered a large, thinking it was the size I needed and it came and was too big. So after talking with Matthew I decided to swap it for a Medium and it is as close to perfect as I have found. The exchange took less than a week turn around. Happy picker and back to practice. Thanks, Matthew!

  7. Not to impressed with the thumb pick. 3 Star Review

    Posted by on 12th Jan 2019

    A CT55 guitar pick was my first blue chip purchase. Absolutely loved it. Not being much of a guitar player, I sent off an email to blue chip asking for suggestions on selecting from the many options. They were quick to respond and help me out. I couldn't be happier. The tone....Wow. I let my friend use it and he purchased his own the next morning. It was so awesome that I had to get a thumb pick for my banjo.
    I'm not at all a professional but I have been playing banjo for 15 years. I'm sorry to say, I was much less impressed with the thumb pick. It was very comfortable but I could't seem to play as fast or clean and perhaps, because of the angel of attack, I wasn't so happy with the tone and after two weeks and some tweaking I ended up shelving it.

  8. Blue Chip Cares About the Player 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 14th Nov 2018

    As a professional banjo player of over fifty years experience, I've tried every gadget and gizmo that there is; capos, tuning machines, bridges and picks of all sorts. When the Blue Chip picks appeared, I was very skeptical; a $40.00 THUMBPICK? I took a chance and got one and I've been collecting and using them ever since. I've tried a few different sizes and shapes and I recently ordered and custom version that I thought would fit my thumb and give me the proper attack on the strings; a small size band mated to a Reso JD blade. This little beauty has rejuvenated my playing and my mates in "Andy's Ramble" (Andy Statman's band) say I've never sounded better. Blue Chip made me the pick I wanted and shipped it the day I ordered it. Great product, great service.

  9. great pick 5 Star Review

    This thumb pic is more comfortable than all-plastic picks and I hope it outlasts them, sounds good on banjo.

  10. The smoothest thumbpick I have ever used! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 9th Aug 2018

    I'm a old school kind of guy and I've used plastic all my life and thought I would never change. I've got to thank Matthew and BlueChip for making such a great product!
