  1. I will Buy two more ASAP 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 13th Nov 2019

    I love these picks. THEY DO make a difference in tone!

  2. fantastic mandolin pick 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 28th Aug 2019

    I wanted to see for myself if the hype was true. I typically use 1.4mm primetone picks and always thought they sounded great.

    It’s hard to describe the difference but the bluechip just sounds better. More full on chops and more clarity on individual notes.

    I also love having the one rounded corner to soften up the tone when I want to.

    Great picks all the way around. Highly recommended. Just don’t lose them!

  3. best pick ever 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 11th Jul 2019

    Produces excellent tone, no clickity clacking, no chipping, all the above justifies the otherwise ridiculous price tag

  4. Pickin' & Grinnin' 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 9th Jul 2019

    WOW! Just WOW! It took me a while to get up the gumption to pay $35 for a guitar pick BUT I am so glad I did! This thing is AMAZING! Fast off of the strings, incredible tone, and the gribibility is the best. My Blueridge BR-160 never sounded so good!

  5. Blue Chip picks really are uniquely good 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 25th Feb 2019

    Having played several Blue Chip picks, and carefully comparing them to other high-end picks, I have concluded that the Blue Chip's bevel, lubricity (smoothness on the string) and gripability (ability to play without repositioning) are unparalleled.

    The trick is finding the perfect size, shape and thickness for one's playing style.

  6. absolutely the best!!!! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 9th Jan 2019

    I've tried almost every pick out there in my 50 years of playing guitar and nothing I've tried compares to the blue chip pick. Genuine tortoise is close but heats up and grabs the strings after an hour or so of hard picking I wish blue chip made a brightly colored pick cuz the brownish color is hard to find when dropped on a dimly lit stage but other than that little gripe they are excellent!! I own about 5 of them and have given several away to friends. Fantastic product!!!

  7. Outstanding Sound 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 3rd Jan 2019

    I'm an intermediate mandolin player and mostly play old time and bluegrass music. If you had asked me to bet that a pick would change my sound I would have bet against it. I received a Bluechip as a Christmas gift and in the two weeks since I've been amazed at how much more vibrant and 'shiny' notes are coming out of my instrument - trust me, I haven't changed in those two weeks. It's definitely worth the money!

  8. Best pick for picking single notes 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 20th Sep 2018

    I've been playing guitar for only about 5 years and mostly play bluegrass. I love picking fiddle tune melodies and the first time I tried one of these picks I was sold. I felt like it enabled me to play faster because it glides over the strings so easily. Surprisingly, though it doesn't stick to the strings, it also doesn't slip out of my grip.

    I recommend monogramming it so you can identify yours in a crowd because everyone will want to try it.

  9. Great Pick! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 2nd Feb 2017

    Only been using this pick for about two weeks, but loving it so far. The size is great for me and the sound compared to most other picks is a lot warmer and smooth sounding. Worth the money!

  10. The best that money can buy! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 1st Jan 2017

    I've been using CT55s on my mandolin for a couple of years and thought I'd try this fractionally lighter version. For me, it works slightly better than the CT55. It's a close thing though and I switch between the two models quite happily. The most important thing as far as I'm concerned is the large triangular shape. I know many mandolin players like the SR series but I find the TAD / CT series easier to keep hold of(!) and more suitable for the tone I like. The rounded shape of the SR gives a fatter warmer sound but my instrument - a Weber Elite F5 - has enough warmth and rersponds better (in my hands anyway) to the more pointed picks.
