This is the TAD-1R pick in 50/1000th of an inch(1.25mm) thickness. It is identical to the TAD, but HAS ONE ROUNDED CORNER. All of our picks are professionally machined, hand beveled, and laser etched.
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.

It's a no brainer to buy this pick, with the 2 edges it's like having 2 picks for 1 price, I ordered a 6-piece set, every thickness from 35-60 (35, 40, 45, 50, 55, 60). You have to custom order the 35-45-55. My favorite is the 45, it's my go-to pick.

I've been using BC picks for some time now and I really like the quality of the product and the tone I get on my mandolins. They seem to pass over the strings with less noise and effort than many other materials and they simply don't wear out!

I had recently purchased a TD-50 and was very disappointed with it, but I decided to give BC another try, and I'm so glad that I did. I'm nothing short of amazed with tone of this pick.It projects much better than any other pick I've ever used. I can finally be heard over a mandolin! I recommend this pick 100%.

I ordered this pick and loved the feel of it... But I found that I really had no use for the one rounded corner...
Sent it back for a TAD-50 - Easy return & I received the perfect pic for me!

When you can spend pennies on guitar picks, the blue chip picks must be pretty special to command the price.
The TAD 1R 50 has great feel, tone, grip, edge. I lost my first one. Bought two more, this time with my name engraved so folks know the picks belong to me.

I got two of these. True, they are expensive, but they are worth it! I have tortoise shells and Red Bears but I will only use these now. I'm thinking of buying one for a friend who refuses to use anything but tortoise. If he doesn't like it I'll gladly trade him.
