  1. Tone, Tone, Tone and more tone 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 3rd Jul 2017

    I've been using Bluechip picks for a few years now, I'm a hobby player but still choose Bluechip because they do produce the best tone and provide the best pick control of anything that I've tried. I recently took some classes at a Music Camp and all the teachers focused on various elements of 'tone' for acoustic instruments. Playing fast or fancy was fine, but what sets apart the music is the tone that comes from those strings. Even as a hobby player, i can hear and feel the difference a Bluechip pick makes to my playing and sound. There is nothing like them, they are handmade with precision, the material they use is unique and is the major element of the cost of the pick. I've been lucky to meet the owners of the family business in Knoxville while on a visit to the USA and speak to the actual people who hand make every single pick to perfection.
    But it is the difference in tone and ease of picking that makes Bluechip a 'no-brainer' to buy.

  2. best pick for tone I've ever used 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 3rd May 2017

    I had a hard time wrapping my head around paying 35$ for a pick until i played the TAD 60! It has increased my tone and playability ten fold!

  3. It's everything it claims to be 5 Star Review

    The pick sticks to your fingers and glides off the strings. I sound better. If you think it's expensive, think about how many hours you play in a year. It's worth it.

  4. Phenomenal pick 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 12th Dec 2016

    This pick will helped me pick faster, more accurately and it has perfect tone. It literally never slips or moves in your fingers. In 15 years of guitar playing, It's by far the best pick I have ever used.

  5. TAD is the best 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 5th Jul 2016

    I have several BlueChips and I use them exclusively. I like the size of the TAD the best, and it glides off the strings like no other. It also has a tone I prefer over any other pick. I play acoustic and harp guitars made of carbon fiber, and I love the sound the BC makes with my instruments. I have used only Blue Chips now for about a year, and along with some TP's, the TAD's are always in my hands. Great products!

  6. Perfect Bluegrass Mandolin Pick 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 18th Apr 2016

    This is my fourth Blue Chip pick. The first was the Chris Thile TAD 55 and I wanted something slightly stiffer and liked the idea of engraving in case I left it out. My teacher wanted the Thile pick and I bought my first TAD 60 which was perfect. I have since bought two more of the same and rotate them each month. I rotate sides each day and the picks show no sign of wear. Simply no fuss and so in my mind, extraordinary value. By the way, customer service and engraving has been terrific!

  7. sweet 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 1st Apr 2016

    This pick feels great and sounds great, I was not expecting that but had to find out for myself. Being from Canada I got killed on exchange so getting another is out of the price range. I know your thinking "if it sounds so good why not get another "the tone, the tone!" I think of picks like I do any other gear. If I bought a $100 effect box I could expect $50 for it if I needed to sell it. I don't think I would get 20 for this pick.
    That being said...
    If you play guitar and tone is important to you, you owe it to yourself to own at least one of these picks. They are awesome.

  8. sounds great!! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 22nd Feb 2016

    When i first tried these picks at a friend i was litterally blown away from the sound it produces, and the feel of it! It makes your guitar sound even better. It's stunning how that little thing can have such an influence on the sound of your guitar! Forget all the common picks you've tried and heard, this is the real thing! It's priced but worth every penny!

  9. Forget the rest. Buy the best. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 25th Jan 2016

    I can't say enough about these picks. Fast, quiet and a sure grip. Especially the grip for dry hands like mine.

  10. The best modern pick hands down IMO 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 20th Jan 2016

    These picks are the next best thing to natural Tortoise shell. Which is endangered so I have given up using them. Better from the wear and maintenance standpoint too. After several years of using my first one there is yet to be any required care of the picking edge.
