  1. Totally versatile 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 14th Sep 2018

    I was first informed about the TPR60 BlueChips by the New Orleans guitarist Molly Reeves, who is one of the greatest contemporary exponents of early jazz and swing music. Her rhythm playing is some of the most tasteful you could hear. She often uses TPR60 picks with the Shake 'em up Jazz Band and the New Orleans Vipers.
    Because of the bevel on these they can also be used incredibly well for lead lines and will give the same sort of control and effect that you get when using the shoulder side of a normal pick Stevie Ray Vaughan style.
    They are very expensive for us here in the UK with import duty, but worth every cent even so. Roll on a trade deal with the U.S.A. and I'll buy me a load more!


  2. Don't want to use anything else 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 13th Sep 2018

    I can play ok with almost any pick but nothing delivers the nuance, warm tone and easy playing TPR60 does. Without a doubt my favorite pick for the electric bass. Nothing else is even close.


  3. My favorite Gypsy Jazz plectrum 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 24th Jul 2018

    The shape and thickness of this beveled pick is really comfortable for Manouche playing which requires a stout pick and an energetic technique. What sets this pick apart from all the others in my estimation is how the surface adheres to my finger tips allowing me to hold the pick very loosely without the pick slipping out of my hand. This allows me to keep a very relaxed wrist and keeps the pick in the optimum position for playing. Great product.


  4. Balanced tone, smooth tremeloing and a firm grip 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 12th Jul 2018

    Last year I stopped in at Carter's Vintage Guitars in Nashville and tested a Blue Chip pick with several of their high end, custom mandolins. It sounded fine, but I told them I couldn't decide whether to buy one, given the high price. I said I would have to "have my head examined" to pay that high a price for a single pick! They smiled as I left the store.

    Last month, I decided to buy one directly through the website, the TPR 60 just to decide "once and for all" if the Blue Chip Pick was as good as some people claimed. Whether they are worth the high price ($35 plus tx) is a personal decision, but the one I bought produces the best tone of any pick I have ever bought. The TPR 60 produces a balanced tone, smooth tremeloing, and a firm grip that keeps it from slipping from my hand. The Blue Chip is my "go to" pick, and is now my favorite. I can see why people like them so much. Losing track of a Blue Chip pick is always a danger, and they are expensive to replace, so you have to be careful about where you put it after playing.


  5. Pretty amazing 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 4th Jun 2018

    Best pick I've found. One--sound is full and rich, with virtually no click-sound. Two--it practically become a part of your hand. To look at it and touch it before playing with it, it is, apparently a smooth material. But when playing with it, it just plain stays with your finger and thumb, with no inclination to slip out of position. If you want to do finger-style for a while, you can hold it with a curled finger 3, or 3 and 4, and it just stays put.

    The material it's made from, whatever it is, is just a little different than any other pick I've tried (I've got a couple of bowls full). Here's something pointless but fun you can do: after holding the pick as you ordinarily do, move your thumb away so the pick is just on your index finger, Then rotate that finger till the pick is totally vertical--it won't fall! It just really wants to stay on your finger.

    I use it mostly with a Tele and ES-175, with 12-high strings.

    I keep it in a little tin that held Burt's Bees Lip Balm, along with a cotton ball so it doesn't click around in the tin.

    The best pick I have ever used my favorite


  8. Deserve their reputation. 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 1st Feb 2018

    There's no doubt about it, these are amazing picks. I find that a lot depends on what gauge strings you are using and what type of guitar. I would say the TPR60 picks which are about 1.5 mm are perfect for me using a Strat with 10 gauge. On Archtops, where I use 11's or 12 gauge they are also great but because you have more resistance from the heavier strings, they can slip round if you're not careful and they could use a grip of some sort in the middle. I have been reluctant to do it so far with a $35 pick, but am going to make some criss cross scoring marks in the middle with a knife to help the grip. I've done this with many other picks and it works. All in all it's one of the two best picks I've ever found. (the other one being the Wegen Bluegrass but I'm not sure I should say that)


  9. Right bevel for the job 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 23rd Jun 2017

    These are some of the best picks I have ever used. I play guitar and mandolin and use the same pick for both. I now have one in each guitar case and in my mandolin case. I highly recommend these for who ever plays bluegrass gospel or what ever style they play. Thanks for a great product. Bill K.


  10. follow up review 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 30th May 2017

    Recently I had posted a review of the TAD 60 3r.. Tumi that pic was just too large and I gave up control. So I thought I would try the tpr 60. This pick is exactly what I was looking for. Delivers an unbelievable tone and still has good pic control.
    I do wish they would make a pick‚Äč like this that had a thumb bevel or imprint. I believe the control would then be even greater
    But if you're wondering if this pick is worth the money... I have ordered three of them and give to my band members because I think they are awesome.
