  1. Amazing! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 25th May 2023

    The only pick I have used that is excellent for both acoustic and electric guitar. Well balanced and great value!

  2. The Best I've Ever Used!!! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 25th May 2023

    I've been playing guitar since about twelve years old. I bought a Blue Chip 55 for my fifty year old Guild, then another when I got my Collings dream guitar. I have two more guitars now made by my luthier cousin and I bought two Blue Chip 40's. I love them all for playing my style of mostly bluegrass and bluegrass gospel. Thank you for a superior product!!!

  3. worth it 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 23rd May 2023

    I’ll never use another brand of pick. I will go through many more different models of this brands picks until I find the one meant for me. Really amazing the difference it makes. Pretty wild.

  4. Excellent pick but can be slippery. 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 15th May 2023

    This pick is very wide and while it has great tone and reflex, it does tend to get slippery due to the large size.

    Would definitely recommend this pick, but it could use a grip.

  5. A do it all that lasts! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 9th May 2023

    I've been using a TAD40 as my primary pick through five years of music school. It sounds and feels great for steel and nylon string acoustic, mandolin, electric bass and guitar. Mine recently broke, but that was because someone used it to pry something open. With regular use I'm sure it had a few more years. Anyways, I've bought a new one of course and can't wait to start breaking it in.

  6. BCP Review 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 30th Apr 2023

    My second of this model. They do wear.
    Same feedback as before... The brown is nice but if dropped in low light, it's gone. The surface texture is highly polished and tends to slip a bit if hands get sweaty. Maybe a textured option would be a good idea.

  7. i never thought 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 28th Mar 2023

    I never thought a pick would change my sound, tone of my guitar both acoustic and electric.
    When I first received my Blue Chip pick I was extremely skeptical .
    Not now. I played that pick the first day and noticed a difference right way.
    So I went right back to their website and ordered a second one!
    Great product.

    Love it .

  9. Satisfied Picker 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 20th Feb 2023

    Very satisfied with my TAD35 Blue Chip Pick. Its size and flexibility allows me to both pick and strum more naturally with the wrist than other picks I have used.

  10. Fast pick with great sound 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 24th Jan 2023

    The TAD 40 is a great pick especially for fast pickers and cross picking. I wish there had been an option on the website of having grip holes drilled on the pick for better control. Thus 4 stars, not for the pick, but for the lack of options on the website.
