This is the TAD-3R pick in 50/1000th of an inch(1.25mm) thickness. It is identical to the TAD, but HAS THREE ROUNDED 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.

This pick is the right size, larger than most picks, makes it easy to hang on to. Great material, no pick click sound, and so far, no signs of wear (about 2 months of use). And the beveling does make a difference, I don't have to file my picks any longer. I like that all 3 corners are finished the same, I don't have to look at the pick to decide which corner to use. Overall I pick faster and more accurately with these picks, really, I would be skeptical of that claim if I wasn't using it myself. I used to use mandolin picks for acoustic flatpicking guitar, I like a hard pick that produces volume and a clear, almost mellow tone without any pick clicking. This is it, the best, and worth the price.

I bought this pick for my wife's birthday and her first decent mandolin. I've had my own BlueChip guitar pick for more than a year and I'm quite satisfied with it for its firmness in my hand and sounds it makes with strings. Now my wife has one. She's happy with it and I'm happy for that.

I'm strictly a back deck / parking lot quality picker, but can really tell a difference with this pick. It moves over the strings more quickly and, despite looking and feeling very slick and smooth, it doesn't slide around in your fingers.

This pick makes a lot of noise off of the strings and is HUGE. I could her the pick "tick" off of every string. I should have studied the reference pictures better as far as how big the pick is. I don't know if its because I primarily strum the guitar or what. But I had to send it back for a different pick. This one just wasn't for me.

These picks come off of the strings cleanly and have great tone
They also are very durable and don't have all the ethical baggage that comes with real shell picks

I have been playing guitar over 50 years and have always searched for the perfect pick. There may never be the perfect pick, but Blue Chip is as close to perfect as I ever found and I have tried them all

As many of us know, the right hand connection to our instrument
is critical, not only in the conveyance of phrasing, but tone.
Bluechip picks come in every possible thickness and shape, whichever maximizes the potential of your stroke in both of these aforementioned critical categories. Furthermore, it is no accident
that the service and attention to the player's need is of paramount
importance to this fine company, as this, along with their fine product, produces the best possible musical experience for us all.

Il Blue Chip Tad50-3R e' perfetto sia nel suono che nella qualita'....
ho usato per circa due anni il Tad60 sui miei mandolini senza nessun segno di usura o di cedimento ..... ilTad 50
e' perfetto leggero e affidabile dal classico al folk....

This is my second BlueChip, I lost the first one. I haven't found any that compares with them.

Loved the sound it produced on my guitar, but It was too small for me. Have ordered a larger pick which should be perfect.
