Product Description

The CT55 is a pick custom designed by Chris Thile for his personal use. It is very similar in size and shape to our TAD line of picks. However it is only manufactured in 55/1000 of an inch(1.4mm) thickness and has a custom bevel per his specifications. This is the exact pick that Chris Thile is currently using. See his thoughts on this pick on our users page.

 

Quarters, Nickels and Dimes, if included in the pictures, are for size reference only. They are not etched on the picks or included with the sale. To use this reference, please place a coin on your current non-Bluechip pick and then compare to the pictures of our picks with coins on top of them. This will help you choose the pick that is closest to your current favorite size and shape.

    There is nothing like finding your lost CT55 after three months to be vividly reminded: full tone! great dynamics! faster AND more comfortable! That's what has been missing...

  3. My first Blue Chip Pick

    Posted by Chris on 11th Aug 2014

    Love it! Wish I have bought one sooner.


  4. Worth it

    Posted by David Mansfield on 6th Aug 2014

    Since switching to the CT55 I've gained significant speed, flexibility and accuracy on the mandolin. And being able to order a custom bevel means that I can get as much or as little top end as I want. I'm converted!


  5. Great Gift Idea ~ Everybody Loves 'Em

    Posted by Ron Shipman on 5th Aug 2014

    I bought the CT-55 for two mando players on my gift list and both were delighted! Blue Chip has been great to deal with and beyond my expectations in fulfilling the orders and prompt and great service. I'm playing a BCT-JD and bought a spare to make sure I don't have to be without it! They're worth every nickel! Thanks, Guys!


  6. Another Skeptic Turned Believer

    Posted by Kerry Laird on 5th Aug 2014

    I'm just an average intermediate player. I was at the first Saturday bluegrass jam in Magnolia, TX, when a fellow mandolin player, one a lot better than I, began to rave about his Blue Chip pick. My jaw hit the floor when he said how much he had paid for the pick. I have tried a variety of picks, even the vaulted Golden Gate pick, and to me an inexpensive pick seemed just as good as its pricey brethren. But a Blue Chip is not a brother to an inexpensive pick. Heck, it's not even a first cousin. We're talking about a three times removed famous relative here. The Blue Chip CT 55 has great volume and glides over the strings, even for an inexperienced player such as myself. I swore that I would write a bad review if the pick did not live up to the hype, and here I am, another skeptic turned believer in the almighty Blue Chip difference. This pick is worth the price.


  7. CT 55 Great pick but jut a bit disappointed

    Posted by john carr on 28th Jul 2014

    Without doubt Blue Chip picks are awesome. The quality of feel against the strings is noticeably different to other picks and it makes a genuine difference to your playing.

    Only problem is Blue Chip stated offering free engraving just after I bought mine. Bummer!!!

  9. ct55 awsome pick

    Posted by GARY"RICK"PHILLIPS on 9th Jul 2014

    ct55 is a awesome pick to my surprise, I was looking
    for a clear tone, and this pick did just that,more bassy sound,
    but I tend to like something a little thiner, since I play more rythem following the banjo. so I ordered a tad 40 whitch is a 1mm, ,but the ct55 is 1.4mm, is a great sounding, picking at home by myself,its really hard to chose a pick,so I have about
    $80 bucks of picks to choose from, THANKS ALLEN,
    THANKS MATT,-GARY"RICK"PHILLIPS


  10. I'm a beginner - amazing difference!

    Posted by newbie on 26th Jun 2014

    Though I'm just a beginner when it comes to playing mandolin, I notice a HUGE difference between the CT-55 and all my other picks. Big difference in both feel and sound. Helps my technique AND my enjoyment! Never would have thought that a little bitty thing like a pick could make such an amazing difference.
