The pick is the "slippery-est" pick I have ever used. It is taking some getting used to, but I like it and am very happy with it. It will enhance my flat picking performance. The pick is well worth the money. I am very impressed with the excellent service!

I bought my first Blue Chip 2 years ago, the CT-55, but I lost it recently, so I purchased the TD-50 as a replacement. Both picks have the same quality of design and function -- superior feel of the pick in various conditions ~ dry, oily or wet. The beveled edges have allowed me to adjust my picking hand technique for smoother flatpicking. AND...the best tone I have ever had for bluegrass!
The $35 price tag is well worth it...I recommend it for anyone who wants to get the most out of their playing.

TD50...these picks were recommend to me by a veteran Nashville
session player...He told me they had to be played to be believed...
I told him this must be a Tennessee myth like the Kentucky
bluegrass being blue....the customer service staff was very
helpful....so I figured that I would give a TD 50 a try...WOW!...
I sat for an hour alternating between the Blue Chip and a number
of mandolin picks...NO comparison...Stereo vs Mono...clarity,
volume if wanted...Damn..no words can capture...subsequently
I bought two more, purchased the banjo JD Crowe thumbpick
and finger picks...The picks are worth every penny...if you think
they are expensive for what they are...then give up the mandolin.

Very loud and clean sounding notes. The tone is well balanced with minimal pick noise. The grip is tacky and glides like butter off the strings. A very fun pick to use.

I have used the TD50 for a few years now. I have four of them. I have used a number of others. I end up going back to this one.

When my teacher flatpicking Roberto Dalla Vecchia to the May 2016 workshop, I did try her pick Blue Chip I knew it was not a normal pick.
The pick was beautiful and often gave great precision to the strumming on the guitar, and the sound was loud and clear.
So I decided that I also wanted to pick the Blue Chip.
Now I am very happy and my Martin D41 guitar sounds very good with new picks.

I like the strength that this pick has it really brings out the complete tone and a quality sound in my guitar. I would have never believed it until I tried one. Your cat go wrong Winthrop a blue chip pick. Great product.

The TD50 is great. I have some other BlueChip picks in different shapes and thicknesses, but I like this the best so far. It is the same size as the Dunlop I've been using for years, but it somehow sticks to your hand and gives WAY better tones. The material is smooth to the touch, but it just does not move in your fingers--hard to describe, but you should try one of these. The main improvement over other plastic picks is the TONE! Especially on acoustic, do an A/B test--the difference is like night and day. Highly recommended.

I've tried so many picks. I've tried this pick that pick and the other pick and the TD 50 is the pick of picks!!!

I've been using Blue Chips for years, now. Recently, I purchased a few new ones & inquired about refinishing my existing ones. To my surprise, they provided the service for free & turnaround was just a few days! Great customer service! I use no other brands & you should accept no substitutes ;-)
