Product Description

The STP is a smaller version of the TP. It is the same basic size as our Kenny Smith signature pick, but has sharper corners. The STP in a 50 thickness is the pick that Adam Steffey currently uses. This is the STP in 50/1000ths of an inch thickness(1.25mm). All of our picks are professionally machined, hand beveled, and laser etched. This pick comes with a speed bevel.

 

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.

  1. Skeptical no more 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 24th Jan 2017

    Took 2 of my regular picks to a gig a month ago for backup just in case this one didn't work.Haven't touched any other pick since.


  2. Love This Pick 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 26th Dec 2016

    It's been two years that I've been playing both this STP50 and the Jazz50 and I couldn't be happier. They hold their edge for a long time, are very hard to drop, and both produce a great sound.

    Regarding the STP50: As a long time user of the Dunlop Jazz III, I'm used to and comfortable with the size of the Jazz50. I got the STP50 to try out the beveled edge. It took a while to get used to the larger size, but, man, it has been so worth it. Tremendous pick and it is so fast. Fantastic pick for leads.


  3. my ultimate choice 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 17th Nov 2016

    I am a BlueChip user since 2014. After having used a heap of different picks, from standard mainstream to more upscale custom stuff and also some really expensive direct competitors to BlueChip, I finally pulled the trigger and ordered a TP50 and a STP45. Long story short, for several reasons there was no looking back!
    I am currently using STP50 and STP45 picks for their superior sound, feel, grip and longevity! I actually still do play the STP45 I got in 2014 (it's Nov 2016 as I write this) and the wear is minimal, even though it has been on a lengthy, nationwide tour and through a heep of other gigs and studiodates. These picks are the best.


  4. Great pick 5 Star Review

    Very nice bright tone produced by the STP50 on monel retro strings. No slipping, no dropping. Worth every penny.


  5. We have a winner 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 25th Jul 2015

    I played the Jazz III for the last 25 years, but 18 months ago I realized that benefit of a larger pick with more support. So I went on a very frustrating journey trying every pick I could get my hands on, and I just couldn't find a pick that offered both the support I was looking for and the speed of the Jazz III. Or if I did, it was made from some space-age plastic that had a brittle scratchy tone.

    I first tried the STP 50 about 6 months ago, and immediately noticed that it was very different from all the other picks I was trying. This first difference was the texture and improved grip in my fingers... but the weird thing was, even with that grip, it glided off the strings effortlessly and without any weird grinding noise. After half an hour of playing, I completely forgot it was in my hand, everything flowed (like the Jazz III). But as soon as I played some cross-srting run or something that usually tripped me up with the Jazz III, the STP was right there offering the support I was looking for.

    I tried a number of other picks after my initially encounter with the STP 50, and I can honestly say that after many months, and dozens of picks, the STP 50 is the clear winner.


  6. Pricey, but worth it! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 26th May 2015

    I can't say enough about the tone, durability, and the feel. It doesn't serrate and catch like all other types I've tried. It just glides off the strings. Most importantly, it doesn't slide around in my fingers. Great product. My musician friends would kick my a$$ if they knew how much it costs. But its worth it.

  8. Excellent 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 24th Dec 2014

    I bought both the STP50 and a Jazz50 at the same time. I got the Jazz50 because I'm really into the Dunlop Jazz III. I got the STP50 on a friend's rec.
    After spending about a week with them, I ended up getting backups for both.
    I play a lot of styles. Both picks cover all of them really well. I was a little uncertain about the STP50 at first because the bevel, to my tastes, didn't complement my Strat's clean tones very well. I use '57/'60 pups. They aren't exactly "beefy", but I love that sound. Turning the pick to the non-beveled side fixed this very nicely, however. Put a big smile on my face when I found that. The size is cool, too. Tucks in there very nicely.
    The area where it really shines for me is with my Les Paul and G&L ASAT Classic. Hot pickups. Especially with mid to high level OD and distortion. It's fast, ridiculously accurate, and you can slam those notes. I love this pick on those axes. The LP, especially (such a fast fingerboard and action).
    A biggie for me is that it doesn't give out that *chirp* sound on the attack (especially as you start to play louder) that I hear on a lot of the picks I tried.
    Works great with my acoustic, too. I can see why bluegrass pickers dig it. Great sound and very fast.
    It's a smooth pick. That and the bevel took me a little getting used to, at first...but nothing major at all. Well worth the "effort".
    I don't normally drop picks, but I don't think I'll ever drop this one. It's like a natural extension of my hand. Love that. I forget it's there.


  9. STP 50 pick is great 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 27th May 2014

    I am a fast playing gospel bluegrass mandolin player and the STP 50 pick is great for the percise attack i need to stand out in an acoustic setting. I have been playing the CT55s for some time, but now that i have found the stp's, I'm hooked.


  10. Everything everyone says, plus an amazing, unique SIZED pick 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 13th May 2014

    I've spent "too much" money on these picks, and for the reasons already well covered by others, do NOT regret it!

    This review is meant to specifically and highly recommend trying at least one in this particular size. It is smaller than a TD, bigger than a jazz, triangular (so you have three tips to essentially never wear out) and it fits amazingly in the index finger tip and first knuckle!!! Just really great control and I can't believe no one else makes a triangular pick at this amazing size.

    I have all three and will be buying more every few months in case they discontinue them (and to promote BC picks of course). The STP50 is probably my favorite for general acoustic flatpicking and mandolin, but the 40 is terrific for detailed strumming and electric.
