This is the TAD pick in 60/1000 of an inch(1.5mm) thickness. It is shaped identically to the TP, but is slightly larger. All BlueChip Picks are professionally machined, laser engraved, and hand beveled.
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.

As a mandolin player you want a pick that will pull the strings and not bend but is not so thick as to impead your playing. I'm not a professional so i don't have those special talents that the best pickers have so i need all the help i can get. The TAD 60 has more backbone than the 55 and feels more positive in my hand and will still make a clear crisp note. Don't change a thing unless to offer as a standard engraving that "God is faithful". Thanks for an easy and responsive web site that works. God bless.

Ho usato parecchi plettri prima con spessore di 1,5mm ma nessuno di questi e' mai riuscito a darmi un suono cosi' bello e pulito sul mio mandolino...
l'unica nota stonata e' che costa troppo....
anche se sono consapevole che durerà nel

Very bright. Speed bevels could be wider and longer for a warmer tone. .060" thickness is good, but would like a .070" better. All over a good pick. Very durable.

After trying several different picks I find this and the CT55 the best picks for flat-picking. It made an immediate and noticeable difference to the cleanness and articulation of my playing. Easy to hold with a very gentle stickiness which helps in the fast runs and a smooth tone

I was given aBlue Chip TPR as a gift a couple of years ago and really liked it. While at a Bluegrass Festival the end of April I tried a TAD 60 and liked it also. I now use the TPR 50 for my guitar and the TAD 60 on the Manolin. The "60" feels better on the Mandolin. I recommend Bluechips to all my friends. They are the best thing since sliced bread.

I think all of the Blue Chip picks are great. I use a lighter one for guitar, but, for mandolin, the TAD 60 is perfect. My preference is the round bevel...but, that's a matter of taste. My pick search for guitar and mandolin ended when I found Blue Chip. Just a matter for finding the one you like.

Great tone and feel. I like the TAD 60 even more than my CT 55 because I seem to need the extra thickness for control. I now use the CT 55 as my guitar pick. Both picks have enhanced my speed and accuracy and enable me to produce a warm woody tone. I'm a satisfied customer.

Never thought I'd order a 35.00 pick...but having used/bought so many different styles of picks with as varied a range of materials I suppose it was a natural progression. I really was struck (oops) with the natural sound of this plectrum against the strings. The sound of the pick actually becomes a part of the guitar's reasonance rather than a noise on top of it. Swapping back and forth between different materials confirmed to me the inherent excellence of the material Blue Chip uses. The stiffness of the TAD 60 is surprising for the thickness, really great melodic attack on the strings at any struck force. I am a convert. I mostly use it for acoustic guitars (6 & 12), mandolin and 3 & 4 string CBG's

The TAD60 is an outstanding pick and will not disappoint. Great tone and lasts very long. This pick is worth every penny. I definitely recommend this pick if you are thinking about purchasing a BlueChip Pick. This pick will make your instrument sound better than ever before.
