  1. XR-50 (mandolin) 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 2nd Mar 2018

    Excellent tone from this pick. I modified the point by slightly rounding it to suit my picking style and for feel. It modified easily using 400 and 600 grit wet dry paper. I sanded it wet.

    It's the same size as the Golden Gates I've been using so I grew comfortable with it quickly.

  3. Amazing service... Unparalelled.... 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 6th Jan 2017

    It didn't take long for me to fall in love with BlueChip guitar picks. The feel and sonic difference they have is unlike anything I've come across...ever. I have purchased a number of them, along with pick boxes as gifts for friends. The ultimate display of their fantastic service is when they hand made a pick for a dear friend and musical inspiration after I sent one of his picks their way as a template. I am a fan for life...

  4. Can't go wrong with any Blue Chip! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 18th Apr 2016

    You pretty much can't go wrong with a Blue Chip Pick. The best part is that they really will work with you to find the one that fits you the best. The XR 50 is a great pick, but, and I'm being super picky here, I missed the bevel. I exchanged it within the 30 days and there were no questions asked. These picks are the best out there in tone, feel, and quality AND their service is top notch!

  5. Brilliant Pick 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 22nd Oct 2015

    I really love this pick and think my cross picking has improved by using it.
    Can hit every note in a pattern more clearly now and can switch from DUDU to DDU more easily I think.
    I've told my picking buddies about your picks.
    Great job, thank you.

  6. Choice Pick 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 29th May 2015

    I play several instruments and am accustomed to using a wide variety of picks. After taking the plunge with my first "expensive" pick, this one is my fourth and most recent. They are all great. Pay attention and just don't lose it and the pick will pay for itself just as it almost seems to "play" for itself.

  7. No Better Picks Being Made 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 30th Dec 2014

    I know the raw material these picks are made from is expensive--it's like $5000 wholesale for a 12-inch square block one inch thick. But I chose this shape because it has such nice tone against the string (not as bright as a more sharply pointed pick). It gives a more rounded tone. It also looks like the same shape Pat Metheny plays, and that influenced me a bit. It is essentially the exact same size and shape as the "Dawg" picks you can buy for a dollar made of plastic. Great tone, great for guitar or mandolin, fantastic tone, super long lasting. The folks at Blue Chip are very easy to deal with. Quick delivery too (about 5 business days to come, non expedited, in the mail). Totally worth it because it lasts way longer than 50 plastic picks.

  8. Lasts forever, great tone and projection. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 28th Nov 2014

    After faithfully using Dawg picks for over a decade, I bought an XR50, because among the Blue Chip offerings, it most closely resembled the Dawg in feel and shape. At first I was skeptical of any pick commanding a $35 price tag, but after a few minutes of playing, found myself really warming up to it. There's a very organic feel to whatever material (unicorn horn?) these picks are made of that make them very easy to grip lightly, and they feel more natural than the Dawg, with more ring and warmth to the tone. I was hooked. I bought my XR50 in September of 2010 and have used this same pick almost exclusively since. After four years of heavy use, it still plays and sounds great. The most compelling quality about Blue Chip picks (aside from the superior tone and feel) is their longevity. I originally tried the XR60 but found it a bit too tubby sounding for my taste, but later had a special XR55 made, which also sounds great. As long as you don't lose your Blue Chip, it'll last forever.
