The TP is our classic triangular pick in a 48/1000 of an inch thickness(1.22mm). 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've collected picks for almost 30 years and have a collection in the thousands. I reached a point in my playing where I was comfortable with one style of pick and used this particular pick extensively for years. After a recommendation from a Blue Chip artist who I've known since high school I tried a TP-48. All I can say is I'm blown away by the tone and craftsmanship of these! There is a difference. A huge audible difference and the way these are beveled will help you in your playing no doubt about it. Still can't believe how great these are. I'm buying one of each. Thanks Blue Chip!

Delivers intense sound and tone! Stellar for bluegrass picking!

I have both the TP48 and TP50 picks. I switch constantly between both as they each have their individual tones. I prefer these over the two Wegen picks I was using. I have stopped searching and have indeed found the ultimate picks for my Bluegrass journey. The fact that Julian Lage and Bryan Sutton, two of my favorite players, use the same picks makes me feel like I have headed down the correct path for my plectrum needs. I heartily recommend both of these picks. And I'm sure that the other Blue Chip picks are equally beneficial!! Thank you!!!

I was skeptical whether these picks would make enough difference to justify the high price. The other day I picked up my mandolin and began playing and noticed something didn't sound right. It just seemed a little flat. I wasn't sure what had happened until I realized I had inadvertently picked up one of my other picks. Once I picked up my new Blue Chip pick and started using it, it was back to it's new self. These picks really make that much of a difference in the tone of my instruments and the way they feel in my hand. If you're picky about they way your instruments sound, they're definitely worth the money. I have already purchased a second TP-1R 40 for my guitar. I would highly recommend them.

I have had nothing but good luck out of the TP 60 that's my favorite pick, the TP 48 that I ordered was a gift, I personally love the TP 60 its the only pick I use ..

I've been using TAD60 and TAD50 picks and I didn't think the TP48 would be significantly different. BUT surprisingly I like the smaller shape and it's a touch stiffer than the TD45. The clarity is excellent for flatpicking.

I like your picks. However, the TP48 is wider than I like. Do you have a pick of the same or close thickness that is not as wide.

The TP50 was the first pick I purchased over a year ago with these guys , later I tried a couple others but came back to the original one, then I took a shot at the new TP48 and I am very pleased with a slightly thinner pick. And I was surprised how much difference it made for "me", as you know it's all subjective, but I find it smoother for fast strumming on acoustic. Also I had not been using a Blue Chip when playing electric, although now I am finding the TP48 is working really well for me, so it's a win, win! Initially I feared there would be an issue with some flexing that would slow me down when playing lead notes but not the case, seems to be a perfect balance at least for me!

Wow! Great feel. Pulls good tone! Very comfortable! A little thinner than I anticipated but still will be put to good use. All I use is turtle and this is my first B Chip. Will go for a 60 here shortly. Very happy with this purchase!
