  1. TAD 3R 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 22nd May 2024

    I couldn’t find the 3R on the site so I order the Regular style. Someone told me after the fact that I could have emailed them and they would have accommodated me. I’ll remember that when I re order. I still enjoy these picks more than any previous choices that I’ve used from other brands.

  3. Pick the best!? 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 29th Apr 2024

    Bluechip picks are he best! I think I’ve purchased at least six of them. I’ve given each of my three grandsons a Bluechip. “Aren’t I worried about losing them, or my grandsons losing them? (You might ask). Not at all. I trained them right from the start to slip the pick under the strings up near the first fret when they’re done playing, as I have for years. Once you’ve started playing with a Bluechip, you’ll make sure you won’t lose it. Pick the best!

  4. Excellent!! 5 Star Review

  5. Love the TAD series picks! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 16th Feb 2024

    I absolutely love the TAD series of picks. My hands are large and slender and the bigger pick (TAD) is a perfect fit. I use the thinner pick (40) for practicing at home. But I use the thicker (TAD50) for performing live with my bluegrass band. These picks are stellar!

  6. the very best picks 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 15th Feb 2024

    as long as you can hold on to a pick and not loose it, there is no better pick! real tortouse shell picks don't sound better! I compared them! Most of the top players use blue chips.

  7. Worth every penny 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 30th Jan 2024

    I was hesitant to buy my first Blue Chip pick due to what seemed like a pretty significant cost for a guitar pick. I thought “can this pick really be that much of a difference maker?”. The answer to that question is a resounding YES every time I play. I have the TAD40 and it’s worth every penny.

  8. Glides through the strings without chirping 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 3rd Jan 2024

    By the headline you know I have tried Jim's prime. Sure, they work but boy do they chirp. This pick does not chirp at all and is actually a tad bit brighter sounding than Jim's prime, which is exactly what I was hoping for when I bought this. I decided to go with the 40 because I was hoping for a bright tone. This pick will definitely last, after 5+ hours of jamming with it not a single scuff or scratch. So glad I finally decided to give a try, totally worth it!

  9. Top of the Line 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 27th Dec 2023

    What can I say, they are Bluechip picks!

  10. Great for guitarists who hate picks 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 26th Dec 2023

    I played a guitar for 56 years without a pick and then a teacher told me I should use a pick to improve my playing. I despaired until I found Blue Chip, thanks for making me a better player
