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.

I own a bunch of all styles and wouldn't play anything else. Tone is great and great playability...I have tried many picks and feel as though Blue Chip are tops....

My mandolin teacher, Emory Lester asked me to purchase one of these picks. I thought the price was high - until I played with it. What a difference in the sound quality. I have since ordered more and will never play with any other pick. !!

Like all picks with round tips, it severely lacks note definition.
Users of other instruments may find it well suited for it, but an electric guitar definitely needs more pointy ends. Most of the beveled picks have rounded tips, so the Blue Chips are not unique in that matter. All i'm saying is, if you want a beveled pick to play electric guitar, I would recommend to search elsewhere.

This is the pick that ended the "search" for me. First on guitar, then on mandolin. On mandolin (which I play more of now), I prefer a thicker pick and I like the rounded bevel (vs. the speed bevel). Gives me a fatter and maybe a little darker tone. But, the chemistry of the Blue Chip makes it almost stick to my fingers and slide smoothly over the strings.

Finally ordered my TAD60 and I'm very glad I did. I prefer it by every measure to all my previous favorites, on both my mandolins. The general shape and bevels work great for me and it glides across the strings, sounding rich and even no matter where on the neck I'm fretting or picking. Not overly bright, but certainly not dull - just a very sweet, crisp tone. Rumor has it these last and last... if that's the case, then all the better.

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.
