  1. Done! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 30th May 2023

    Intermediate bluegrass guitarist. First Blue Chips were 40s, maybe a 45, then I switched to the TAD 50-3R. Easy to hold, solid/strong enough for the heavy work (bass runs and rhythm) yet light/nimble enough for quick picking and nuanced notes. I bought four -- two for each guitar/case -- and unless I lose one, I'm never buying another pick! Highly recommended.

  2. Great pick 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 21st Mar 2023

    I am a beginning to intermediate mandolin player. I had used softer guitar picks and could never get a good tone or acceptable tremolos until a harder pick was suggested. I have some Dunlop picks, but until I got the Blue Chip pick nothing felt right. I love the bevels.
    I am very happy with my purchase and have since purchased a thumb pick for my guitar playing. I highly recommend these picks.

    If Peter Piper Picked the Perfect Pick
    Which Pick would Peter Piper Pick?
    The TAD-3R 50

    The tone produced is neither too bright nor too soft, just right! String crossings are easier. A great addition to your pick arsenal and possibly your “go to” best friend.

  6. Great Pick and a Great Company. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 3rd Jan 2023

    Dang, I tell you, I love my blue chip picks. I use this model on a flattop guitar, which works well for anything you want to throw at it. I have a slightly thicker choice I use on the Mandolin, Chris Thile's signature, which has been my exclusive mandolin pick since the time the pickup was manufactured.

  7. The Best! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 3rd Jan 2023

    I have several blue Chip picks and they never fail to meet the test. This new one is a TAD-3R 50. It has a very comfortable hand feel slightly brighter tonal quality from my SR 50 - another great addition to my pick case!

  8. Just Do It 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 22nd Jul 2022

    Do yourself a favor and buy one of these. I wrestled with the price point for over a year before I bought some Blue Chip Picks. You have no idea just how much resistance ordinary picks have when compared to blue chip. There is a smoothness and sweetness that comes from the instrument when played with blue chips. Any video online does not do them any justice. You have to experience it for yourself.

  9. Best Pick I've Ever Had 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 22nd Apr 2022

    Just purchased by third Blue Chip. I have two for my flattop and one for my mandolin. Playing Bluegrass Music, it gives me the best sound and control of any pick I've ever used.

  10. great pick 5 Star Review

    The rounded points make for a warm tone quality.
