  2. Best pick I’ve found 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 28th Nov 2019

    I play bluegrass with this TAD 80 and Irish with a TAD 40. I have also rounded a corner on both for speed and playability to suit my needs. These are the best best I have found and I’ve tried a lot. There’s something about the material that makes these picks glide over the strings with greater ease and speed. Love them!!

  4. Worth Every Penny!!! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 9th Mar 2018

    Blue Chips truly are amazing... I liked them the first time a buddy said, "Here try this." The tone improvement over the cheap picks I had been using was immediately noticeable. However, after ordering one and playing it for a few weeks, I've realized how much more fluid my right hand is with a Blue Chip in it. I had used other expensive picks before, such as Wegen, and never really liked or bought into the hype. However, Blue Chip has made a believer out of me.

  5. TAD-80. Best Pick I've ever used! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 24th Dec 2016

    Can't believe the difference this pick makes. My playing is so much more accurate and the tone is much better. I wouldn't have believed it if I didn't try it out myself. Expensive, yes, but worth the price. This is a must have!

  6. TAD - 80 (Round Bevel) 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 12th Dec 2016

    This is without a doubt the best pick I've ever used! It really does make a difference. The tone was instantly better. The pick feels really good and secure and has great smoothness almost like glass gliding over the strings. It has improved my accuracy as well. I will be buying more. The price is definitely worth it.

  7. best feel in any pick 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 27th Sep 2016

    I use this pick to thicken-up the sound on my Eastman mandolin. I used to use the wegan 2mm round pick. This pick, after switching from round to triangle, has helped me tremendously. It is crisp, fast, and still thick and somewhat dark sounding. But best of all is the feel in your hand and on the strings. When i don't get in my own way, it positively glides across the strings. My favorite thing is that it stays put. I used to sand picks or buy picks with holes in them in order to not have the pick slide around while performing and sweating. No more. These just stick to you somehow. Framkly, Bluechips seem to allow me do do things I can't do with other picks. It's not hype! I wish it was... i have lost two of these picks:) Although i resisted, I had to buy a third replacement. It killed me, but it killed me more not to have this pick.

  8. The thicker the better 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 11th Jul 2016

    I own 4 Blue Chip flat picks and the 80 is my favorite for flat-picking guitar and mandolin. I'm mostly doing Bluegrass nowadays. Your hand can actually relax because a thick pick is easier to hang on to. I generally always keep it wedged in the strings of my #1 guitar when it's not between my fingers.

  9. Immediate gains in technique! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 28th Jun 2016

    I noticed faster picking with much better articulation. More responsive. It would be hard to go back. The sound is good, a little brighter than I wanted at first, but with just a little practice more sounds are evolving. I could never go back to my old pick, so I ordered 2 more for back ups. At fifty bucks a pop it is a lot, I like having the extra edge I don`t care if anyone else uses it I like having an edge.

  10. Complete frequency range and upper harmonics 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 28th Jan 2016

    Complete frequency range and upper harmonics of the strings are very good expressed. All other picks I own sound woody after i've played with my BluChip TAD80 pick.
