  1. Tremolo's best friend 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 10th Feb 2022

    When a mandolin tune contains a lot of tremolo, I find the TAD40 a tad easier to use. Just the right amount of give in the pick to bring out double stops and pretty rifts in waltzes. Then I switch back to the TAD50 for faster, note-heavy songs. Great combo of picks that cover the waterfront for me.


  2. simply the best 5 Star Review

    A lot of money for a pick. Yes. But when you think of the daily pleasure with good tone and perfect feeling - for a long time … And your guitar is happy too …


  3. Better than tortoise? 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 7th Oct 2021

    I’ve considered tortoise shell picks to be the gold standard. I don’t know what Blue Chip picks are made of but they are the only picks that give tortoise a serious run for the money! And they are cheaper, easier to obtain and wear much better than tortoise.

    I wish they would have existed 40 years ago. Superior to anything I ever played with.


  5. The only pick for me 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 8th Jul 2021

    I've never used another pick since buying my first TADS40 a few years ago. I feel like this pick moves my skill level up by several notches. Perfect weight and machining for speed and accuracy.

  8. good mistake 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 27th Jun 2021

    I ordered the TAD 40 by mistake. I thought I ordered something different and was surprised when this was the pick I received. Turns out that I'm really happy about clicking on this pick by accident, I'm in love with how it performs. So much so that I went ahead and bought another one.


  9. Gift 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 27th May 2021

    I bought this pick for a friend because I like the ones I have bought for myself and a couple of other people I have gifted Blue Chips to have also liked them. My friend seemed to be attached to his 0.8 mm Clayton tricorner and I figured the TAD 40 I play might be too thick for him. I got advice from your team and as a result was able to order a TAD 40 which was actually a TAD 35. My friend seemed to like it and he sounded great while using the pick. Thanks for the special order.


  10. Worth every penny 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 8th May 2021

    The TAD-40 was the one I ended up with first. I was looking to try the same pick that Bryan Sutton uses as I’m currently going through his online bluegrass flat picking courses. I guess I got mixed up and got the wrong one because I think he uses a TD48 but I am not disappointed.....I’ve always played acoustic blues tunes and delta style blues but recently decided to really spend my time moving towards more bluegrass flat picking and older fiddle tunes. That being said, my style has changed and so has the necessity for a new style of pick. I can’t say enough about how comfortable this TAD-40 feels in the hand. At first I thought maybe it was a bit large but with my size hands it settles into the nook perfectly. The control is great, the tone pristine, and the speed and comfort while playing is unparalleled to any pick I’ve used during my 17 years playing time. It never seems to slip away which just baffles me, and if it does seem to shift just a bit, a small adjustment puts it right back in line effortlessly. I’m more than happy with the TAD-40. I ended up buying a second one a week and a half after the first!!’ Highly recommend . Wouldn’t use anything else after this
