The TP is our classic triangular pick in a 40/1000 of an inch thickness(1.0mm). The TP is the same size as the TPR, but has slightly sharper corners. All of our picks are professionally machined, hand beveled, and laser etched.
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 have Many Blue Chip Flat Picks , each one has a different function , if I play Mandolin I use a TP-1R 50 or a CT-55 , On my Guitars I use the STP 40 and STP 50 , I also use a TP -1 50 and now I just Purchased two great TP 40's . What is different is these 2 Picks are Engraved with my Name and all the others I have are not. This is because BlueChip Picks can last for many years and seemingly will never wear out , I love the way they feel in my Right Hand and they fact they are practically devoid of side noise or Pick Click and most importantly that they self Lubricate during use . The right Hand Speed bevel is technology that is revolutionary in controlling the pick. Overall You won't find a better Pick anywhere else except at BlueChip .Picks , Every Pick they make is a Great Pick to Own for your Instrument !

The TP-40 is perfect for my hybrid picking style. It adheres to my thumb and index fingers, allowing precise flatpicking and fully complementing my ring and middle fingers when hybrid picking. This pick is just perfect with my Martin and Mossman guitars.

I love these picks. I like holding the material of the pick and the TP size is great for me. I play tenor banjo and don't want too much brightness since the banjo is bright an loud already. The shape of the TP is perfect for me without a speed bevel. Just the right tone. I actually asked for a 35 thickness instead of 40, and that was no problem at all for them to produce. Great service! I bought two of these and I think they will last a very long time, but whenever I do need to replace them, I'll definitely be ordering the exact same picks again.

I found the tone of the TP40 to be thin to be honest. I love the way it doesn't get caught up in the strings - it really helps out with the fast picking. However, it is probably too thin to provide the meaty, rich sound I'm used to with the thicker Dunlop Tortex picks I use. Great for fast picking, but doesn't deliver a rich, full tone.

I like this pick for staying put in your fingers and the sound from my guitar, however, it does not fit well between my fingers. I need a pick that is a little shorter from point to top. I have trouble determining which pick would solve this problem. Any suggestions would be helpful.

Ordered my first BlueChip TAD-40 a couple of months ago and it is quite astounding in the vibrant tone that my Martin D35 now makes. It is almost effortless picking now and the TP-40 is great for the softer style of country and bluegrass picking I play. HANDS DOWN,,, the best sounding pick I've ever owned (and I have about 200). It is more expensive than any other pick I own... but smoother across the strings and better sounding too. I keep these picks on my person at all times, so they're available whenever I need them.

Hate to disagree with all the superlative ratings given to this pick but it is no game changer. There's no magic here and if you're looking for a miracle, you're only fooling yourself like I did. This pick is not worth $35.

Like most guitarists, I've tried just about every pick in existence, all in the never-ending quest to find the perfect one -- you know, the one that delivers ballsy tone and great hand-feel. The Blue Chip pick comes close, delivering superbly meaty tone while gliding across the strings. But it's that latter attribute that also delivers the only negative I can say about this pick: it feels slippery between the fingers. Of course, other reviewers haven't mentioned this, so I've come to the conclusion that it's my light grip on the pick that's contributing to this issue -- but it's an issue I don't have with some other brands of picks.

I have never used another pick like this one. It practically sticks itself to your right hand. Makes my mandolin sing and even if I hit the strings flat on there is hardly any pick noise. And tremolo is a breeze!

My main go to instruments are a Larrivee OM-03R SH and an American Deluxe Telecaster. The Larrivee sounds great with the TP40 but the real standout is my Telecaster. With this pick I can play as light or as hard as I want and the BlueChip really makes the guitar respond. People are amazed at the tone I get. Yes, there are a lot of variables in the signal path from string to speaker, but it all starts with your mind telling your hand what to do. My TP40 never gets in the way of that.
