  1. Exceptional product 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 27th Mar 2018

    I was tired of buying picks - kind of like the increasing cost of disposable razors, I didn't like shelling out money over & over, & I also got frustrated with picks as they'd wear down & then I'd find myself with 200 not-optimal-condition picks lying around.

    So I'm not a bluegrass player – I mostly play effed-up electric blues & post-punk, although I do like to touch on all styles. I'd been using Tusq picks, which I think have a very reponsive attack with nice overtones, & Dunlop Primetones; those are the most "alive" sounding picks I've used other than string-shredding steel (they beat copper & aluminum). The Blue Chip matches/beats them tonally; the unique grip aspect of the Blue Pick also makes the pick become part of your hand, which creates a bit of a learning curve. I would forget I was holding the Blue Chip & scrape my fingers occasionally on the strings, which stopped happening once I got used to it. The only sonic criticism I would say is it's harder to make pick scrapes against the strings – they're not as bold for some reason. Considering I overuse pick scraping as part of my playing, I am thankful it has reduced my reliance on it! In any event, I hope this is the only pick I own forever (although I think I will also get the next thickness up, too, eventually).


  2. Yes, they are worth it! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 19th Mar 2018

    I was a doubter. I asked myself, "Could a pick at that price point really be worth it?", "Are they really as good as everyone says they are?" The answer is yes, they are that good and worth every penny. The tone is noticeably much better than any other pick I've ever used and the feel on the strings is like greasing up your picks with some type of magical substance that allows the pick to just glide over the strings despite the thickness of the pick. I feel like I am better at playing guitar when using a Blue Chip pick and to me that makes any price worth it.


  3. Best pick I've ever used. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 19th Mar 2018

    Was recommend to purchase these from my guitar teacher. I was a little skeptical at first, but after purchasing one I've fallen in love. Easy to hold, long lasting, plays well, and sounds great. Plus it's fun to tell all your guitar buddies about your $40 pick :)


  4. I'm a believer 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 18th Mar 2018

    Excellent picks. I don't know how they do it but something about them makes them special. A step up from the Primetones that I also use.


  5. BlueChip pics are slick 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 16th Mar 2018

    I have a TAD50 and love it. I wanted a TearDrop for flat picking .I chose the TD40 because I thought it would be a little brighter sounding. I am very pleased with both as they have different sounds.


  6. Glad i tried this pick 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 28th Feb 2018

    I thought I would try this pick and I’m sure glad I did . Really makes a big difference in the tone and hardly any pick sound . Looking forward to playing with a Blue Chip Pick for many years to come also the delivery was very fast


  7. Completely Satisfied 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 19th Feb 2018

    When you first pick up a guitar the pick drag and friction can be a real drag. :) The material and way better the picks are finished are second to none. Thank you all for keeping up the quality.

  8. Upon High Recommendation I Purchased as a GIFT for a Friend. 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 12th Feb 2018

    After reading an article by Tim Lovelace, I purchased a blue chip pick (TD40) for a friend. I have not used it, and haven't received any feedback from the recipient as yet. However, the pick and also the pouch I purchased with it were very good looking and appeared to be of high quality. Other than that, I know nothing about them except that Tim Lovelace gave the Blue Chip TD40 very high praise. Therefore, I give it just four stars because I really have no experience personally with the pick.


  9. Blue Chip 35&40 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 31st Jan 2018

    Best I’ve ever used.


  10. Love these picks 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 18th Jan 2018

    I just bought the TD 35 and 40 and have nothing but great things to say. I gravitated from Tortex to here largely because of the slippage. These picks glide off of the strings but not out of your fingers - they’re great. I love the string clarity and tone too.
