Love the picks: wouldn't use anything else. But you really need to offer a brighter colour. The amount of time I spend on hands and knees with a torch around a campfire session looking for a dropped pick amid leaf litter and twigs and brown grass is quite ridiculous. You call them blue chip...try bright blue. Please.

I am completely satisfied with this pick. I have used nothing else since I started using them a couple of years ago.

it's a Great Pick , the 40 is perfect for my 1971 Martin D-28 ! I use a TD 35 on my Taylor Dreadnought ! and both work well for me on my Taylor GA -4 12 String ! the Unbelievable thing about these picks is when your fingers get sweaty they hold the best , they don't walk around on you !

The shape and thickness of the TD40 make it super versatile. I've had great results using this pick on all my guitars, playing a variety of styles. I can't comment on it's longevity as I'm a relatively new user, but my initial thoughts are that it's super comfortable to hold, and travels through the string easier, which I think leads to a perceived volume boost. The tone is warmer than other picks of the same thickness, and the attack of each note is clear without being too bright.

For years I've played with inexpensive over the counter, "buy 'em by the bag" flat picks. I play a couple of expensive Gibson F-4 and F-5 mandolins and reasoned that, with the heavy gauge picks I was using, why spend $38 on a single pick? I've been playing in bands nearly 45 years, performing and recording. Traveling around the country with a Bluegrass band is expensive enough so 50 cent picks served me well. Then at a jam session recently, my brother handed me a TD-40 Bluechip pick and said "Try this." The next day I ordered two "over-priced" TD-40 picks (I might lose one). Best music purchase I've made since I bought my Gibson F-5 mandolin. These picks allow me to give the instrument a lighter cleaner touch without giving up volume. And, I guess the best way to describe it, the sound has a crisp, sweet quality I've not experienced before. Wish I'd had my hands on a pick of this quality when I was a beginner. Thanks for a great product at a bargain price.

I am a flatpicker and I can definitely play faster with the Blue Chip picks -- the pick just slips more easily in and out of the strings than conventional picks. Also, when your fingers are sweaty (not too sweaty), these picks have a way of sticking to your fingers., improving your grip For these reasons, I like the pick a lot. The tone is good if you are looking for a rounded (not crisp) tone, especially on the attack. Sometimes to be heard in a jam I wish I were playing an "old yeller" pick again, because the crisper tone with the yellow plastic picks is more easily heard in a big group. The attack of the BC pick on the string is pretty subdued. My BIGGEST complaint with these picks, however, is the price is extremely high. It becomes a major tragedy if you lose one. I have a couple BC picks, but I would definitely buy more if the price were lower. Maybe BC should look into price elasticity and experiment with lower prices -- they might sell so many more that overall they would make more money.

Absolute sure grip, no clicking, glides across strings beautifully and brings out the full tone potential of my guitar. Flat picking has become a whole new experience for the better. Definitely worth the money.

Love the tone & smoothness with very little pick noise. Hugh improvement over other brands.

It's a little bit stiffer than your basic "celluloid" heavy, but not as thick as an extra heavy.
An amazing pick! There is NO equal.
However Blue Chip makes these, the tone is full and controlled, and the release is perfect.
