  1. Great Pick 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 12th Mar 2019

    I've been playing guitar for over 50 years. So, as you can imagine, I've used lots of different picks over that time. BC picks are my favorite. One problem I have found with other picks is that at times they produce a chirping sound. BC picks are virtually silent. I think these picks provide the best way of producing the best sound from my acoustic guitars. They seem like they will be long lasting - but only time will tell. I now own four BC picks, and they are always the first pick I reach for.

  4. Blue Chip picks are definitely a game changer 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 31st Jul 2018

    I've been playing Blue Chip picks for over 6 years now. Prior to that I had worked through 3-4 different brands but, kept coming back to Blue Chip. The quality and workmanship of their picks is outstanding. I recently added a TAD40-1R to the arsenal. Currently using a TP50-1R for guitar and a CT55 for mandolin. The TAD40-1R is very versatile and crosses over to various instruments with ease. I will look no further for picks. Sold on Blue Chip.

    Makes my Taylor 12 string sound absolutely incredible. It sounds like it's just been recorded!

  6. Two different sounds in one hand 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 31st May 2018

    TAD40-1R - this is two different sounds in one hand. So I play Bach with the round end and french romantic with the sharp end.

  7. Fat Tone 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 25th Jan 2018

    I really like this pick for the clear fat tone I get when using the rounded corner. When I received this pick I sat down and did side by side test with this and other picks I use for strumming and single note playing. I did this on both a rosewood and mahogany acoustics. Without a doubt I can hear a more rich clear tone with the BlueChip Pick than any of the others I use. I could hear it while playing and I could hear it when I recorded the test. The BlueChip does take a little getting use to as it does slide over the strings fast and smooth. The difference in tone is subtle but it is there and for me that alone makes the cost worthwhile.

  8. Great pick for bluegrass picking. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 26th Jul 2017

    I ordered this pick to have a spare in case I lose my other. This is the third TAD40-1R I have purchased. I gave my first spare to a friend in the bluegrass community who couldn't believe how much of a difference a pick could make on the sound of a guitar and ease of flat picking. I LOVE this pick.

  9. Best Flat Picks Ever 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 4th Jul 2017

    I love that Blue Chip Picks can be customized to provide just what the consumer wants. And what is so amazing is that the harder you drive these picks, the better they adhere to your thumb and finger! No slipping around, or dropping on the ground when you're really hammering away on bluegrass rhythm, for example. Truly the best picks I have ever used, especially for flat picking on an acoustic guitar. And these picks seem to never wear out!
    Blue Chip Picks are truly a great value for the price!
