Product Description

The SR is an extremely rounded triangle shaped pick in a 50/1000th of an inch(1.25mm) 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.

  1. Brings out the best in your instrument 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 8th Dec 2015

    I was as skeptical as most others are about paying this kind of money but decided to try a Bluechip Pick after reading widely about the number of well-known players who sing their praises (including Sharon Gilchrist below).
    I was using Grisman's Dawg picks but I soon found the Bluechip SR50 seemed to get a fuller and more even response from my mandolin. I am also able to play fast runs more cleanly.
    I've recently also bought a CT50 which is a better shape and size for me but gives a thinner tone due to its less rounded edge.
    Warning to UK buyers: on top of paying VAT and Import Duty, which I expected, Royal Mail slam on an £8.50 'admin fee'!
    The pick's still worth it though...

  2. best picks 5 Star Review

    these picks make good even tone.they glide through the strings evenly and dont make a lot of pick noise just good tone.

  3. Great for mandoin but not so much for octave mandolin 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 2nd Sep 2015

    I've played with the SR50 for about a month. At first I wasn't sure the tone was better than my Dawg picks which I have beveled to my taste, but I'm now convinced that the tone is more even across all strings. I've also realised that I don't have to hold the pick so tightly, therefore my playing is more relaxed, faster runs are much less difficult and I don't get the aches that I used to.
    I wish Blue Chip would give dimensions and explain their bevel options with diagrams as currently one has to guess which sort might suit (or have I missed something on the website?).
    Anyway, I'm sufficiently impressed to be ordering a CT50, which I hope might be a slightly larger pick.

  4. Great Pick, but expwensive 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 14th Aug 2015

    This is great pick. It is durable and I like the beveled edges. There is minimum pick noise.

    The only drawback is that it is expensive at $35.

    Thank you.



  5. The only pick for me. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 15th Jul 2015

    I purchased two SR 50s several years ago based upon recommendations on the Collings Forum. I have never been disappointed. I love the feel and tone. Every other pick I try is inferior. I am a very satisfied life time customer.

  6. Great Sound! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 2nd Feb 2015

    This pick was recommended to me by my mandolin teacher Sharon Gilchrist a great performer and teacher. I could immediately tell the difference in tone and the ease with which it slid off the strings. My husband can tell when I'm using another pick just by the sound. He says it give the mandolin a a lot better tone and sound of fullness now.

  7. works better than any other 5 Star Review

    The bluechip pick is amazing. It holds in my fingers without any effort, the tone is much fuller sounding and my speed has improved. Thanks, BlueChip

  8. Great Mandolin Pick 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 17th Mar 2014

    I love the SR50.
    I love the size of the pick and the shape of the points.

    I like edges that are rounded yet have the smallest bit of a point to them to help grab the strings. A little bit of a point helps grab the string just enough, while the rounded edge helps round out the tone and make it a little warmer than the sharper pointed picks do.

    The 50 weight proves great for my bass-heavy sounding mandolin. The 60 weight was a little too heavy and dark on my mando.

    I find that I prefer the SR50 without the bevel more so than with the bevel.

    Love the feel of the blue chip material in the hand. And it definitely seems to produce a more live tone than mere plastic.

    I resisted the Blue Chip trend as long as possible. It's like resisting owning a cell phone. Now that I tried one, I had to have it!

  9. Fast 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 2nd Jul 2013

    This is a great pick for mandolin. It is fast and has excellent tone quality. I play it everyday and had it about a month and don't see any wear on it.

  10. Very Fast 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 12th Nov 2012

    I have used many different picks on my mandolin, but the SR50 is by far the best. Its rounded shape and speed bevel make tremolos much smoother and the material makes for a firm grip.

    I use Blue Chip exclusively on my guitars and mandolins. Simply the best I have ever tried.
