  1. Mandolin Clarity 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 17th Oct 2017

    I play and write Celtic music and have been trying, for some time, to find the right pick that would enhance "my" tonal sound. Finally found it..the TPR40. Bigger tone on my Mando, reduced pick noise but, more importantly, a noticeable increase in clarity and sustain of notes. It feels so natural in my hand and has simply elevated my playing to another level. I'm hooked.

  2. OK, I'll admit it - best pick I've ever used 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 28th Jun 2017

    I was skeptical - after all it's just a piece of plastic....but there was a noticeable difference right off the bat - Better tone and the pick seems to glide more smoothly across the strings - and though it's smooth, it doesn't slip in my fingers. I play mandolin and got a TPR 40, which is closest in shape to what I normally use - I will definitely buy another and also try a different shaped one as well - I highly recommend this product

  3. Nice Shape for Flatpicking 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 31st May 2017

    I've been using the BlueChip TP in various thicknesses over the last few years, most recently their 48. After seeing something closer to the shape of the TPR in the hands of one of my favorite players on YouTube I ordered a TPR45. I found it too dark in tone so I downsized to a 40. The TPR40 is still darker in tone than the TP48 but the rounded corners allow me to play bluegrass lead quite a bit faster and with a more even volume. I would describe the TPR as more forgiving that the TP and worth a try if you're a TP user looking for a smoother sound. Of course it goes without saying that the BlueChip material is outstanding for durability.

  4. best pick ever 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 19th Jan 2017

    I was skeptical that any pick in the world could be worth $35. I was wrong. This pick is worth all of that. Love the tone I get when using it - no "clicking" noise. And love the way it feels. Now I just need to make sure I don't lose it.

  5. The perfect mandolin pick 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 3rd Oct 2016

    I am so happy with this pick for my Mando, low pick noise, perfect size and thickness, and doesn't slide around on my fingers. I feel it gives the Mando the best tone to my ear. Thank you for making the perfect pick!

  6. Feels and Sounds Great 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 6th Jun 2016

    Just ordered my second TPR-40. I played the first one as a trial and it did not take long the fall in love with it. The feel is unlike any other pick I have handled. The pick to string action is just right whether in rhythm or flatpicking. Its longevity is worth the investment as well. I practice between 3-5 times a week with 1-2 gigs a week on top of that. The pick held up well through all of this for about 9 months before I felt a slight loss in depth on the pick edge. And that loss was only 1-2 mils. I will definitely keep playing with these picks and promoting their use.

  7. TPR 40 Blue Chip Pick 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 22nd Oct 2015

    I like the bevel on this pick. It fairly glides over the strings

  8. Nothing like a "Blue Chip" 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 28th Jul 2015

    I love the firm feel and the sound of my Blue Chip picks. Lots of mid range and great bass, with an excellent "woody" tone. They are all I'm picking up anymore!

  9. Tone tone and more tone with Blue Chips Pics 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 15th Jul 2015

    I can't say enough about Matthew's work. Honestly, I am playing and sounding better, it feels better, I am more drawn to the Mando and Guitar and have become insanely rich using my Blue Chip - rich in texture and tone of coarse.

  10. I have only been picking a mandolin 5 years and as with anything we try every product available with anything we try as I have tried probably 25 different picks and probably have a 1,000 in my possession but once I researched ordered and started usin 5 Star Review
