  1. Used for over 3 years 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 23rd Jul 2021

    Purchased after a friend let me use his. was able to buy at a festival just as the crew was packing up to leave. I am very careful to keep up with my pick as I would feel "off" without it. I like the sound it makes. I play mandolin and recommend this pick. my recent purchase was a gift for my son. He likes his pick as well

  2. Awesome guitar pick 5 Star Review

    Great pick and they accommodated my request for a 35 width for no extra charge.

  3. Wow! nice pick. i was very sceptical at first. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 14th Jun 2021

    I seen lots of reviews on Blue Chip picks. I was using Dunlop Prime Tone sculpted picks 1.3mm before I got a Blue Chip pick. I like the feeling of the pick between your fingers. It glides effortlessly off the strings but still not slippery in your fingers. The interaction with the pick and strings are not noisy or plastic like. It’s just smooth and makes for a great tone. I WILL buy again. I really don’t see using anything else…. It’s enhanced my ability right away. I feel like my playing will improve by using this pick… especially with smoothness and speed.

  4. Thanks for going the extra mile! 5 Star Review

    Great pick!!! I am impressed that BlueChip went beyond the stock picks to give me a slightly thinner pick. Thanks for being responsive and quick.

  5. the hype is real 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 31st Mar 2021

    I bought a Blue Chip to prove they weren't what everyone says they are. It was worth the $40 to be able to shut down internet forums everywhere I searched.... then I played the damn thing. Out of nowhere I have no picks that I like to play besides my Blue Chip.

    You could seriously search for "Blue Chip Pick Review Praise" and just apply whatever you read to how I feel about my Blue Chip pick

  6. Great pick 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 1st Jan 2019

    Larger than most I've used. Easy to hold and control. I wasn't sure I was going to like it.

  7. fantastic pick but need time and practice to properly master it 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 30th Oct 2018

    I play bluegrass. For 35 years I used a standard extra heavy Fender pick. The TAD40-3R is another world, more volume, tone, expressiveness. But I had to change my right hand position to play this pick at its best, and I have not completely succeeded so far (2 weeks). But it is worth the change !

  8. A softer sound 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 24th Jul 2018

    The rounded edge of this pick gives my mandolin a softer sound and seems good for slower melodies. Usually I prefer a sharper point, but when a tune calls for this kind of sound, this is one great pick.

  9. Great custom job 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 7th May 2018

    I actually asked if they could make this pick as a 35 instead of a 40, and was told it would be no problem. A few days later, I had the pick in my hand as promised. It's nice having two picks of similar shape but different gauges to choose between.

  10. $35 pick is no better than a $.25 Fender pick. 1 Star Review

    Posted by on 26th Apr 2018

    More expensive does not always mean better. Lesson learned.
