The Jazz LG is a pick that is very similar in shape to our original Jazz pick. It is slightly larger than the regular jazz pick. This is a Jazz LG in a 50/1000 of an inch(1.25mm) thickness. All of our picks a professionally machined, hand beveled, and laser etched. This pick comes with a universal rounded bevel.
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.

I got the Andy Wood version (you should really make it a standard model) And its got the perfect size, right in the middle of a regular J3 and and J3XL, grip holes does the job perfectly.
Tone: varm, little pick noise if any, slides over the strings better than most anything else. Highly recommended.

Absolutely love the sound and feel of this pick. It is the perfect "match" if you are used to a Dunlop Jazz III XL. The 1.25mm thickness is pretty close to the Jazz III as well, so the "flex" is nearly identical. I have gotten quite accustomed to the Pickboy Jazz picks though; and the BC Jazz XL is a bit taller. I opted to exchange my BC Jazz XL for a regular BC Jazz for this reason.
To my ears, and with my playing style, Blue Chip picks are a bit brighter than the Pickboy celluloid material, yet smoother than the Dunlop nylon material. Way faster off the string than any pick I've tried.

A friend raved about these picks, so he let me borrow his for a while. Played with it for a few hours, loved it, but couldn't really justify how much it cost. However, once I returned it to my friend, I found my old picks to be quite lacking.
So, I buckled down and bought the Jazz 50 Lg. These picks make playing seem much more effortless and smooth. They really get out of the way and produce a clean, pure sound.

About a month ago I finally had a chance to try out a blue-chip someone had and needless to say I wanted to get one of my own.
I placed an order for a BC Jazz LG 50 with the Andy wood specs(highly recommend) and in a few days it arrived.
The pick feels amazing and smooth not scratchy over the strings, very similar to polycarbonate with no string noise. It allows your hand to relax allowing you to play smooth clean and effortless lines.
Even for the price you cannot beat the durability as I've been playing mine every day and has not shown any signs of wear.
I know the website features a lot of Bluegrass and mandolin players but from a metal guitarist point of view this thing will do just fine and will take any punishment you can dish out.
If you are serious about your gear or playing then you owe yourself to at least have one in your collection! I would by 20 if I can afford it!

This pick has cleaned up my technique, given me better tone, better control, & is sturdy as a rock!!! I intend to buy more as soon as I can:)

I've been using Red Bear Big Jazzer for years now but find them a little too small. The LG50 is a little larger, more like the Dunlop Jazz III XL, so perfect size. Plus, the tone is great.

I have used the Blue Chip CT55 mandolin pick for almost two years now and love it, but at the time there was no Blue Chip pick that matched the Dunlop Jazz III XL that I use for guitar. But now there is! The BC Jazz LG 50 (which I got with a right-handed bevel) has all the speed and precision of the Jazz III, plus a much richer sound.

I bought this pick after trying out one like it for about 5 minutes...I was immediately hooked.
The help from the folks at BlueChip to figure out bevel and pick thickness was first-rate. I went with a little heavier pick and the dreaded "pick-click" has all but gone away now.
Highly recommend this pick or ANY pick from BlueChip!
