  1. Great volume and projection. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 6th Sep 2021

    I have tried several picks over the years. I play guitar in a bluegrass band and in a church folk group. The TAD-50 is the best overall pick for volume and projection when strumming and playing leads and breaks.

  4. Don't pass this up. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 24th May 2021

    If you have any reservations about getting a Bluechip pick, I can assure you that these are top quality, high and tight craftsmanship and 100% worth the investment. Having cycled between many brands trying to find the "one" I have chosen this brand as my primary source and without a doubt, will never look back. I love these picks and will continue to purchase them. Try it out and spread the word, this company deserves the love.

  5. Great product 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 19th May 2021

    I’ve had my pick for a few weeks so far and I am very happy with it. I wanted a large triangle shape that was half way between a standard TAD and a TAD 3R. Told you guys what I was after and you absolutely nailed it! Thank you!

  6. Dudn’t get any better 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 30th Mar 2021

    At least for my mando playing, this is the perfect pick. Nothing else is even close. I love the feel of this pick, how it glides across the strings, and the tone it coaxes out. Rhythm or lead, it dudn’t get any better.

  7. best pick on the market 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 24th Mar 2021

    Just love these picks. Great grip, tone and shape. Tried a couple different thicknesses, the 50 is perfect for me.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. 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.
