  1. 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.

    Simply the best there is. Perfect shape and size. Support fast palying. Gives a huge and warm tone.

  3. Ya it's good. 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 17th Aug 2015

    Feels nice, sound is a little crisper on the high end. (compared to the 2.0 mm dunlop gators) The "speed bevel" really makes the pick come off the string quick,and has tidy'd up my picking a bit. I find that hinders it a little playing rhythm as it's a little hard to dig into those bass walks. Still getting comfortable with it. The shape and size are perfect. I was real excited waiting for it and was tracking it in the mail. For some reason I was expecting it to be in a fancy box or something. Mostly because I'm Canadian and it ended up costing $80 or so to get it here and it was just a envelope with a Pick in a dime bag!

  4. Slick & Chic 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 27th Jun 2015

    Dear Blue Chip-Team,
    i recently bought a TAD 80 ( after trying virtually all other Custom Plectriers like Wegen, Dugain, Red Bear etc. ) and have to state, that this delivers the best playing feel i´ve ever had. The structure of your TAD-Model is perfect for economy picking and requires only a minimum of polishing ( Micro Mesh 4000 and 12000 ). Based on the fact that i like fat/darker tones, i´ll order the TAD 100-1R next :). Unfortunately i am domiciled in Germany, so i am forced to pay additional import sales tax...this sucks !

  6. This pick really helps 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 31st Aug 2014

    I have been playing mandolin almost two years and some of the technical aspects of the right hand were giving me trouble. The more solid TAD80 really helped with clarity as well as improved the overall tone quality the instrument produced.

    I'm a trumpet player, and I know the mouthpiece can make all the difference in the sound. Well, I've learned that is the case with the mandolin pick. Thanks

  7. Great Feel 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 28th Jan 2014

    This pick is solid, and can really drive a guitar. It is like butter on strings, and secure in your hands.

    I did assume that the right hand bevel is ideal for right handed players. The terminology is a little misleading in this regard.

    I play right handed on a right hand guitar, but I hold the pick angled so that the bridge end strikes the string first - therefore I should use a left hand bevel pick.

  8. Cannot Imagine a Better Pick 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 23rd Nov 2013

    I was using a carbon fiber pick that I really loved, but it was too small. I saw the TAD, liked the size and thought I would give it a try. I bought the 80 and the 60, not really knowing the difference.

    First let me say they are both great. They are both stiff. The main reason I am using the 80 versus the 60 is I like the thicker feel. But they are both stiff, which is exactly what I wanted.

    The thing is…what are these things made of? They have great tone, not too much clicking on the strings, they move over the strings with no friction, they show no wear, and they don't slip out of your grip. In fact, I find it almost impossible to even slide it between by fingers. But it is not sticky! It is also smooth. I don't understand, but I love it!

    In summary, I don't know what more I would want out of a pick, and I probably won't have to buy another one before I die, because this one appears that it will last longer than i will. I just hope I don't loose it!

  9. Bluechip delivers 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 27th Mar 2013

    Before purchasing my bluechip, the two picks I used exclusively were Wegens and tortoise shell. Both of those stay at home now. The bluechip has better tone, zero friction on the strings and is the fastest pick i've ever played with. Glad I bought it.
