  1. Better than expected! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 11th Sep 2019

    I had thought a 50 thickness would be too much and wouldn't give the flex needed for pick nuances, but this triangle TAD gave just the right clarity and muscle to impress me! I love it. My playing is better and the tone is similar if not better than my "real" picks.

  2. Excellent mandolin pick 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 26th Aug 2019

    After my son’s dog ate his first Tad50 pick, I decided to order one for him and another for me. He raved about it, so I had to try. It really brings out the tone of my Larrivee A33 mandolin. I love it! Yes, it’s pricey, but I’m worth it.

  3. Love my TAD50 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 12th Aug 2019

    I have used a lot of picks and was skeptical about this one because it is a bit spendy and I got the TAD by accident instead of the TD. It seemed a bit slick to grip at first but I put a small piece of masking tape on each side. It didn't take long to get used to the tri-tip shape and the little piece of tape worked perfectly. Now it is the only pick I use and if I lose it, I am getting another right away. I love the rich sound with no hint of pick click. Also I have now played with it for several days and lots of hours and I can't detect any wear on it at all. Long as I don't lose it, it will probably be the only pick I ever need.

  5. Still not Sure 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 27th Jun 2019

    I have had the TAD 50 for a few weeks now. I do like the larger size of the pick, the beveled edges and the smooth action on the strings.
    However, It is very loud and has a distinct metallic sound which I am just not used to yet. I will try it for a while longer and see if my feelings about the sound changes?

  7. TD50 Awesome 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 21st May 2019

    Been a guitar picker for over 50 years, and have played mandolin for over 15. Read numerous reviews before spending the money to satisfy my curiosity about Blue Chip Picks, wanting to see what exactly justified the cost.

    Having numerous picks, for different tonal and effect quality, I’ve always just switched off depending on the music. But, since the very first, I’ve found that this pick covers ‘all the bases’, and it is my go to and pretty much ‘stay with’ pick. I can ‘soft tone’, chirp, hammer, or get whatever tone I want by positioning the pick, and I use it almost exclusively no matter what music genre I’m playing.

    I’m sold!!! I will never be without a Blue Chip again. Worth every dollar, and more for the serious player. Thanks Blue Chip; you did it right!!

    Don't know what else I can say that already hasn't been said by others. If your on the fence, jump off and order one. Bluechip picks are the best I have ever used.

  9. well worth the money! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 4th Feb 2019

    I love the way this pick brings out the low woody sound in my Martin! The shape and size are perfect! I will only use Blue Chip picks now! They even make a cheap guitar sound good! If you want to get the most out of whatever instrument you have I highly recommend this pick! I also use Blue Chip picks with my mandolin!

  10. The best picks anywhere! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 28th Jan 2019

    Beautiful tone, durable with little or no wear after years of use. I alternate between several versions, but they are all great. Terrific service and quick delivery. Worth every penny!
