JD Crowe Banjo Thumb Picks
This is our JD Crowe thumb pick in large, medium or small . This pick was designed by JD Crowe and constructed to his very exacting specifications.
The 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 Blue Chip Banjo pick.
These picks are laser etched, professionally machined, and hand beveled to create the best thumb pick available.

These picks are amazing. If you get one I can almost guarantee you wont want to use anything else ever again and they are definitely worth the money. Keep in mind how much you use your thumb when you play banjo. I know they are expensive but only if you lose it. I used to be careless with thumb picks when I used cheap ones but it's funny how $40.00 makes you careful and I have only lost one in four years.
Note on sizes. In my experience, if you are unsure whether to choose medium or large, choose large.
The Blue Chip Thumb Picks are adjustable and stay tight without feeling tight and the large fits most men. The small is for women with more petite fingers and the medium is for women with average size fingers and men that have a slightly smaller than average thumb.
Another way to gauge this is I have never had a large sent back for a medium but have had quite a few mediums sent back for large. The Large will also fit men with extra large thumbs because it is adjustable. I've never received a large back because it was too small for someone either.
