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. 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.

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

  3. 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!

  4. The best thumbpick for dobro! 5 Star Review

  5. There just aren't any better... 5 Star Review

    This is my go to for both banjo and dobro. Best picks out there. Great tone. Last forever.

  6. blue chip picks are the best 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 30th Jan 2018

    I have osteoarthritis in my right hand and trying different picks from different makers. They all were good but the blue chip is the best. The size is large so I can hold on to it. No pick noise and the pick glides off the strings with ease and tone. Best pick I’ve ever used. Also using hybrid picking works great. The perfect pick.

  7. Smooth action, lovely rounded tone 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 24th Sep 2017

    Plastic thumb picks just don’t last very long, and I’ve been trying to find a thumb pick that really works for me. The BlueChip thumb picks are excellent, the action is smooth, and the pick stays firmly in place. The best thing is the sound. I’m not playing professionally, on the reso at least (played saxophones in the past), but I do know what works for me. These picks are so much better than what I’ve worked with so far. For me there is a difference between the 1L and the JDL - the 1L is a tiny bit longer and produces a brighter attack than the JDL (the L refers to large). There’s a use for each one.

  8. I couldn't be happier...! 5 Star Review

    Loud, comfortable, smooth tone! If I ever lose mine I'll instantly buy another, I'm in the club ... Big fan!

  9. My favorite thumbpick 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 5th Jan 2017

    I've used this thumbpick for about five years and am completely happy with it. It's extremely durable and very comfortable.
    After five years, the thumbpick edge had worn down a bit, so that I couldn't dig in as aggressively as I sometimes needed. So, I got a new one and am good for another five years.
    I use this for lap style resonator guitar, BTW.

  10. Great Product 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 24th Oct 2016

    These picks last much longer than plastic thumb picks. I wish they would make some of the same pick with a Poly- Amide-Imide blade.
    It lasts longer, sounds brighter, and slips off the strings better.
