BlueChip Picks is proud to announce our latest thumb pick design, the BCT-JD. The JD thumb pick was designed by JD Crowe and created by BlueChip Picks to his exacting specifications. "I really like the tone of this pick." He says, "...in thirty years, I have never had a thumb pick that matched the power and tone of my metal finger picks until now. This is a great thumb pick." Everything from the length and radius of the blade, to the placement of the JD initials on the underside is the way Mr. Crowe designed it. The metal band has a new, wider radius that we are now using on all our thumb picks.
JD would not have been willing to design this pick, had he not been so impressed with our BlueChip pick material. He told us, "It doesn't get scratchy like other picks...it's always very slick and smooth off the strings." JD also mentioned that he could use the thumb pick on his guitar and then use it on his banjo without it sounding scratchy. He loved the durability and that he could wear it for hours and it did not move and turn. He also mentioned that he liked the way the band wraps around and does not get caught on the fifth string.
BlueChip picks are produced from a very high grade, self-lubricating composite material specially formulated for great playing qualities. These one-of-a-kind picks cannot be found anywhere else in the world. The patent-pending material has great tone and speed like tortoise with none of the drawbacks. BlueChip Picks are precision-machined and never need polishing because they do not flake at the corners like tortoise shell picks do. Their self-lubricating properties make them extremely fast. If you have been using tortoise picks to get that special tone and speed, try a BlueChip. You will never go back.
This is our JD Crowe thumb pick in a size Medium. Size compares to a standard Medium thumb pick of any brand.
