Product Description

The SR is an extremely rounded triangle shaped pick in a 40/1000th of an inch(1.0mm) thickness. The bottom corner radius is greater than the top two corners.  Our picks are all precision machined and hand beveled for the highest quality.

 

Quarters, Nickels and Dimes, if included in the pictures, are for size reference only. They are not etched on the picks or included with the sale. To use this reference, please place a coin on your current non-Bluechip pick and then compare to the pictures of our picks with coins on top of them. This will help you choose the pick that is closest to your current favorite size and shape.

  1. 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.


  2. Great companion to any great guitar 5 Star Review

    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.


  3. 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.


  4. 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


  5. Try One 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 7th Jan 2020

    People always ask “What kind of strings do you use?” They should be asking “What kind of pick do you use?” I believe flatpicks have much more influence on tone than say, 80-20 or phosphor bronze strings. That being said there is no better pick than Blue Chip. When your playing skill advances you tend to want heavier strings and stiffer picks. Blue Chip picks do not flex, period. And, whatever they’re made of, they sound great. Much better than Tortex or Fenders. Add to that the bevel and the round feel of the SRs and you’ve got a pick as great as one made from an endangered species. They even happily custom made an SR 35 for me. Try one.


  6. I’ve used a million picks... 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 19th Sep 2019

    We all have. There’s an idea that you should buy strings that are expensive, to put on your expensive guitar and use $.50 picks. But having a quality pick changes the tone of your guitar. If I lost my Bluechip right now, there would be an order by the end of the day.

    They feel and sound better, it’s worth it


  7. A lot of money for a pick...but worth it. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 8th Feb 2018

    I was jamming with Marty Marrone and he loaned me a Bluechip pick he had. After jamming together for several hours, I went to give it back and he said, "You can keep it, it makes your mandolin sound great" Wow! it was the best sounding, playing pick I had ever played with. I promptly lost it that week. I have never lost a pick, ever! So I ordered this one with my name on it then I promptly remembered where I left the old one. Now I have two. $40 for a guitar pick is ridiculous, but well worth it.


  8. Easy to hold 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 2nd Oct 2017

    This pick makes my mandolin sound so bright, and I no longer have the thunking sound.


  9. Unnecessary concern! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 10th Apr 2017

    $35 for a pick? Who charges that...and who pays that? Maybe it'll make me play like SRV, Doc, Tommy, Jorma, or Bromberg?

    Well, the bad news is that I still play like me. The good news is that this is a fantastic pick! You say wait...don't you buy your Tortex teardrop picks 72 for $20? Yup...I do. But I'm also done with them very quickly; the matte Tortex finish wears off, and soon they're flying out of my fingers. That's why I take a dozen with me when I play. I've now been using my Blue Chip for two or three weeks, and it still feels new. Right size, right shape and right weight.

    So yeah...$35 for a pretty unique pick.

    Satisfied customer!


  10. The best pick you can buy 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 6th Jan 2017

    The best pick you can buy... period. I'm now going to try a thicker one
