  1. TAD50 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 24th Jan 2018

    Great Tone and clarity

  2. Perfect Pick for My Mandolin 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 15th Mar 2017

    I bought this pick along with a TAD 40 because I was not sure which I would like. On my particular mandolin (made by Jim Hillburn - #43, 2007) the TAD 50 seems perfect. I also have a CT 55, but though it feels and plays great, it is a little dark for this instrument.

  3. WOW! Game Changer! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 15th Nov 2016

    I'm a believer. This is my third bluechip and I absolutely love them. I'm playing better, tone is outstanding - I feel as if I forget I am even holding a pick and my hands are magically guided to the exact point on or between strings. Truly a great product. I'll buy another soon. The TAD50 is perfect for me - I'm an acoustic / baritone player - heavy strummer and picker. Love it! Buy one - you won't be disappointed.

  4. Excellence 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 30th Sep 2016

    After this pick, I can not go back to the other ones. It's comfortable, it has punch, and the feling is just wonderful. After this purchase, I can not take another kind of pick.

  5. Nearly 2 years 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 14th Sep 2016

    I have been playing with my TAD50 for 1 year and 11 months, and it has no wear. None. I love the sound it produces. I rarely use any other pick. My favorite thing about it is that it allows me the improved accuracy of a thick pick without the limitations of one. The only negative I have found at all is that, because of its thickness, it is easy for me to play the strings too hard and cause buzz. Nothing wrong with the pick, just the player!

  6. TAD 50 Just right for me 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 7th Sep 2016

    I play a Phoenix Bluegrass mandolin with D'Addario EXP 74s for all kinds of music: Bluegrass, Jazz, Swing, Classical and Old Time.

    I have the TAD CT 55 that is just a touch too think for me. I get better pick flex and a louder tone with the the TAD 50. I was surprised by the difference.

    Feels good to know I found what really works for me.

  7. best pick out there 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 5th Sep 2016

    For full tone an clarity I choose the Blue Chip picks. Long lasting and very consistent. There are other good picks out there but this is at the top of my tool box right now.

  8. my favorite pick 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 11th Jul 2016

    I've used many high end picks and feel blue chip is at the top of the heap, they're durable, great sounding and are the only picks that have a natural "grip". Meaning I barely ever drop 'em

  9. TAD50 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 16th Jun 2016

    These picks are great, I very much like the grip that this material gives on your fingers. It has helped a lot with control while cross-picking on guitar. Tonality is great.

  10. TAD 50 Good Pick but Way Overpriced. 3 Star Review

    Posted by on 14th Jun 2016

    This is a good pick but if you're expecting to play better, faster, and cleaner it ain't going to happen. There is no magic here and it is WAY overpriced.
