  1. Best darn pick in my 60 years of playing. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 12th Oct 2021

    It is comfortable to hold, the most scratch free sound when picking, produces about the same volume as picking with fingers on acoustic and electric guitars, and the best lubrication for holding the pick. The best there is.

  2. I was doubtful 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 5th Apr 2021

    I ordered 2 BC Picks around Jan 2020. I thought this is ridiculous, but I will give them a try. During the pandemic I played about 30 outdoor gigs and also practiced like the devil right thru the winter. Hundreds of hours with these picks. I am now convinced that they are worth the money. The sound they produce is great, but if you play thru a PA a bunch, that is a fine line. What makes them worth it to me is that they don't wear down like other picks. No more filing, or sanding prior to a gig to get the edge right... The grip is better for me too. Consequently, about a month ago, I ordered 2 more - TAD 60 & 80 -- I have heard all of the jokes about expensive gear and accessories --- I spend a good chunk of every day playing the guitar and these picks make that time more enjoyable. mark t small www.marktsmall.com

  3. Thumbpick Version 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 5th Oct 2020

    I am a dobro player and having used the Blue Chip reso thumbpick for years, I was looking for something with a little more punch and substance. On the recommendation of another player, I contacted the folks at Blue Chip about getting one of these TAD80 flatpicks custom made into a thumbpick. This pick is thicker than the reso version thumbpicks and feels and sounds great. It gave me just what I was looking for. I opted for the Russ Carson mode thumbpick because the shape and size reminded of the old Golden Gate thumbpicks I used for years before stumbling onto Blue Chip years ago. Blue Chip is a fantastic company with amazing customer service making incredible products for musicians of all types.

  4. Didn't expect to love this pick this much! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 22nd Jun 2020

    I LOVE this pick. I used to be a little pick guy, but I tried the TAD 60 and liked it, thought maybe a little fatter would make me happy and - VOILA! This pick is awesome. Scares the heck outta me to love a $50 pick so much, but I do.

  5. Last guitar you'll ever need! 5 Star Review

    I love all of Blue Chip picks, but for me -- I've found my best fit in the TAD80. Great size all around and sounds unbelievable for flat picking.

  7. 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!!

    I have found my perfect pick !!!

  9. 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.

  10. 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!
