Product Description

This pick was custom designed and created for Kenny Smith. It is the exact style that he is currently using. The Kenny Smith signature picks are very similar to a TPR, but slightly smaller. This is the 40/1000 of an inch(1.0mm) which is the thickness of Kenny's personal BlueChip Pick.

Kenny Smith pick with a quarter on top. Note the size. This is a small pick.


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 absolutely love these picks! I ordered a couple different models and when I decided which one I liked best the company allowed me to exchange the picks for the model I liked best!! The customer service was top notch!! The mailing could not have been faster!! I could not be happier with my experience with the Bluechip picks and the Blue chip company!! I will be a life long customer!! Anyone considering a purchase should go for it!! I can guarantee you that you will be happy that you did!

  3. Changed my playing and tone for the better! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 22nd May 2021

    I can't say enough good things about this pick. I've used it exclusively on acoustic and electric for 8+ years. The rounded edge brings out the tone of the instrument and has far less "string sound" than any other pick I've tried. It also helped my rhythm playing in many ways. I've bought several over the years and have never seen a single inconsistency in machining or material. The quality is top notch!

  4. Custom Kenny Smith 35 Pick 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 8th Nov 2019

    The perfect pick for my application as a bluegrass flat picker. Perfect balance (to my ears) in the frequency spectrum. The rounded corners allow for better speed picking. Great, smooth, top end. Slightly brighter top end vs the Kenny Smith 45. Provides for outstanding tone. Besides, Kenny is my favorite flat picker.

  5. Great pick and great people 5 Star Review

    I like Blue Chip Picks so much that I bought this one for my rhythm player. Now he is a big fan of Blue Chip Pick!

  6. Thanks, KS and BC 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 24th May 2019

    I think this is my 9th BC, and looks like I really hit the sweet spot with this one.

    The size and shape are perfect for me to play acoustic guitar, and the sound is great without excessive clicking.

  7. The Best Pick: 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 12th Jun 2018

    Hi There,
    A friend of mine lend me his TAD40 for about 20 minutes and I was amazed, Instantly I noticed BlueChip was faster and tone was more alive. I ordered the TAD50, 60 because that's the size in Dunlop Ultex that I was using. As I was playing more and more, walks between chords, alternate picking it started to feel like I could get faster if the pick was smaller? Long story short I then moved to the TP50, 60? Then to the STP60, that's when I noticed the exceptional speed and accuracy and size was (Bang On), but was too pointy and stiff for ryhthm.
    I then ordered the KS40, 50, 60 cause I wasn't sure which I'd like better since i was switching to more rounded edges.
    I play lights on my Takamine EF360 and the KS40 has stolen the show "amazing" will be ordering more for backup. KS50, & 60 are good for picking but to stiff for strumming.
    Apologize for the long review but trying to help those that are thinking about the KS series.
    P.S. BlueChip picks are expensive but well worth it and have honestly made me a better player!
    Thanks for making the KS series.

  8. Too small for my hands 3 Star Review

    Posted by on 5th Dec 2017

    This is a nice slick little pick... but it's too small for me to play confidently. The pick is not much larger than a dime. The rounded edges produce a soft warm tone and make picking a quick melody easy.

    BlueChip was quick to deliver and handled the return just as quickly, so if you're happy paying postage, it might be worth an experiment.

  9. Excellent picks! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 30th Sep 2017

    I have a number of BlueChip signature Kenny Smith picks in different thicknesses. They produce great tone and are very fast, comfortable and durable. Love ‘em!

  10. Amazing sound 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 20th Jul 2017

    I bought this pick and thought it would be great for my Martin guitar. It is, but when I played it with my Gibson F-5 Fern mandolin, I knew that all the other picks I had used were irrelevant. This is the best mandolin pick I have ever played/heard by far! Well worth the money!
