  1. simply the best … 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 24th Feb 2023

    After using TAD 40 (have three of them) I find the - Custom - TAD 48 even better: still clear tone, but faster for „fast“ picking (acoustic guitar)

  2. Some Kind of Magic 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 24th Jan 2023

    There is something to these picks that makes them exceptional. If you can afford one, I highly recommend them.

  3. Excellent Pick 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 18th Jan 2023

    I just recently bought my first Bluechip. A friend of mine gave me one of his in 2019. It quickly became the only pick I would ever use. I’m excited to buy my first one (especially after four years of using the same one and it still isn’t worn out.) To me, a Bluechip pick is worth every penny.

  4. Guitar Pick 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 5th Jan 2023

    The pick I ordered has been a great investment and works great. I have several Bluechip picks now, eight to be exact. How about a free one? They are great picks, but a little pricy. They are worth the price though.

  5. couldn’t believe it 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 6th Sep 2022

    I didn’t think a pick could be this good or worth $35. I was wrong. I really like the way this pick feels and sounds. Even though it is smooth it doesn’t slip and provides great control. I’m a believer.

  6. special order 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 22nd Aug 2022

    A friend that had played BlueChip picks before and lost it, played my Chris Thile 55 and liked it but wanted one in a 45. The TAD is the same size pick, but wasn’t shown in a 45. I called and asked about having one made and the folks at BlueChip graciously accommodated me. I received the TAD45 shortly there after and my friend was very happy with it. Thanks for great service and products.

  7. great pck 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 10th Jun 2022

    Repeat buyer. Wish it had a computer chip in it, so I could find when I lose it! I use it on my Bourgois OM Generation.

  8. Smooth as butter, though brighter than expected. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 6th Jun 2022

    I'm really enjoying this pick. I expected it to be a darker sound from reviews, but it is brighter than all my other picks of the same thickness. One other unexpected thing is the chirp on the high notes on electric. Not good or bad, just there. The craftsmanship of the pick itself is great, and it looks very classy compared to the bright yellow tortex picki used to use :)

  10. Great Pick 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 4th May 2022

    I have previously purchase a TD 40 and TD 45 (which I misplaced) and was unsure if i could handle a TAD 50 which is a thicker pick than I had been comfortable with. I was pleasantly surprised at how quickly I adapted to the shape and the thickness of the pick. There was no problem getting used to the pick. The TAD size/design was recommended by my teacher during one of his live streams. I had always been a TD man but now that is changed. I just wish they would make a TAD 45.
