  3. The search is over 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 10th Jun 2022

    As a player and a teacher I always realized that a pick is one of the most important tools in the guitar players arsenal. This is the shape and feel that is perfect for my Acoustic guitar. Nicely rounded to glide over the strings and big enough to play single notes with accuracy . I can feel and hear the difference when I switch back to my old pick. It has definitely made playing a lot more fun.

    Perfect size and play-ability.

    Rounded corners give it the perfect shape for attacking the strings and smoothness in strumming and cording.

  6. My Pick for the Best Pick 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 5th Jan 2022

    The SR size and shape fits well in my hand. I use it for flatpicking, but it’s large enough to double for mandolin. Matthew is kind enough to let me special-order SR35s. They’re stiff without being bulk and they bring out a little more brightness from my D18GE.

  7. I love the BlueChip SR-40 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 22nd Jun 2021

    The shape of this pick is traditionally favored by mandolin players because the rounded corners help facilitate faster
    Picking on the short mandolin strings. I use it for guitar for the same reason. The SR-40 flows off the strings like butter,
    Speeding up single note runs as well as chord changes.

  8. Great companion to any great guitar 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 30th Dec 2020

    This is my forth pick, even though the first one is in great condition I still wanted a back up plus I have several guitars and like keeping a blue chip with my main ones.

  9. BlueChip SR Picks 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 21st Dec 2020

    Blue chips just plain sound good. I’m surprised more players don’t choose SR. How many times have you heard players slay they use a rounded corner of a teardrop pick? SR’s have 3 rounded beveled corners.

    I believe players mistakenly seek out thickness when what they really want is stiffness. Even though 40 is the thinnest SR advertised, BlueChip will custom make a 35 - just ask for 35 in the comments tab at checkout.

    BlueChip SR35 helps me play my best.

  10. Final piece of the puzzle 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 18th Sep 2020

    Perfect size and shape for me. Brings out all the tone on my CB acoustic with Elixir Polyweb strings, but ALSO works great with the Tele and mandolin....had a TD40 (gave it to my son) , and have just gravitated toward the bigger and more rounded profile. I suspect this will be the only pick I ever use moving forward. Cost not an issue and well worth it IMO
