The Jazz pick is very similar in size and shape to the Dunlop Jazz 3 pick. This is a Jazz in a 80/1000 of an inch(2.0mm) thickness. All of our picks a professionally machined, hand beveled, and laser etched. This pick has 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.

Best pick I have tried hands down. Have compared to John Pearse, various Dunlops, red bear, wegen, howling monkey tauga, Swiss picks, pick boy horn and bone picks.
These are by far the best sounding and feeling. Slightly grippy in your fingers but glide really smooth and fat over the strings. Harmonically rich sound, not overly warm and not too brittle but plenty of highs and lows in the sound.
I have the 60 and 80 and think that the 80 is the perfect thickness.

I bought a Jazz 60 3 years ago and a Jazz 100 a year and a half ago. The 60 is finally starting to show a little wear and a temporarily thought I lost the 100, so I bought an 80. I like the 80 the best. It's a bit less bright, but surer in the grip. The 100 is just a little too thick for anything but single note lines or triads/double stops.
Any one of these picks will likely improve your picking. I found that I could immediately pick faster when I got my first Blue Chip. In my case, after the Blue Chip increased my speed, that transferred over to pretty much every reasonably thick pick I used.

This is the second Blue Chip pick Jazz 80 I have purchased. The clarity from this pick is amazing. I also like that after using my first Blue Chip pick for about a year now, there is absolutely no wear on it despite it being used a couple of hours every day. I plan to buy a couple more of these picks when I can afford it just in case I lose one, because this is the best pick I have ever used (I have used Red Bear, Wegen & Fender picks in the past which were nice but you can instantly hear the difference between the Blue Chip and the rest). They are expensive - especially after customs charges as I live in UK, but I still think they are worth it. Highly recommended!

This is a very small pick but effortless to use. I especially like the close, intimate connection with the strings that I am able to have with this pick. It feels very stable in the hand, like an extension of it, and really it can do whatever you can do. Very easy to draw a full sound and warm tone with this pick. Very solid and articulate at whatever tempo.

I previously gave a glowing review to the BC Jazz 60 pick. All the wonderful qualities of the Jazz 60 are present in the Jazz 80. The difference between the two picks is that the Jazz 60 is 1.5mm thick, the Jazz 80 2.0 mm. The Jazz 80, which I find preferable for ballads, has a darker, more haunting, sound than the Jazz 60. I'm so sold on these picks that I have purchased three of each of them: I keep one of each in my guitar case, one on my amp, one in the Blue Chip key fob that I have with me at all times. Pricey, yes, but well worth the investment.

I've tried everything. If my wife knew what I'd spent on picks in the last five years she would leave me; hell, if I knew how much I'd spent on picks in the last five years I'd leave me.
I had one of these picks about two years ago, and I used it really happily for over a year. Then I decided I should see if I could find a better pick. I've been through everything including red bear and dugain and the very impressive d'andrea range. I came back to this a week or so ago and immediately realized it was EASILY the best pick I'd ever used. The key is that it gives you BOTH a really full sound (the thicker the pick the fuller the sound) and fantastic articulation. Most picks that give a great sound are much too big and fat and they don't work well under pressure (scrapple from the apple at a bright tempo). This works great at high tempos AND gives you a really full and strong sound.
