  1. Once you try a Blue Chip You can't go back 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 29th Oct 2019

    These picks feel great in the hands. I don't know how to describe the feeling, but not slippery and not rough. They also sound like better. My teacher put one into my hands and I've had a hard time going back to other picks.

  2. Best mandolin Blue Chip pick 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 16th Sep 2019

    I ordered a TAD50-3R Blue Chip pick to play mandolin and it is excellent.. ...I took the advice of another mandolin player....3 nicely rounded corners that enable me to play the mandolin faster with more control......Best picks.....I am very pleased... These great picks help my 79 year old fingers to hold the picks better....They are worth the cost.....

  3. TAD-50 3R is an amazing pick!! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 14th May 2019

    I love the speed bevel and the equal round corners allow you to pick it up and just play. The pick is very fluid and smooth! I would recommend this pick to any bluegrass player!

  4. Simply the best... 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 3rd Sep 2018

    Yes, it's a cliché and yes, they're expensive but there's nothing to touch these picks; feel, tone, quality of workmanship, the lot.
    I use the TAD50-3R for mandolin and while Wegen dedicated mandolin picks (from Europe) are good, these are better.
    Just don't lose one!

    It makes a difference...... a pretty big difference.

  6. A Flatpicker's Delight 5 Star Review

    The TAD-50 is a "tad" larger than the TPR-50. The rounded tips and beveled edges of the pick result in a warm, smooth, tight and punchy tone.

  7. A Loyal Customer Since 2008. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 1st Jan 2018

    I selected this pick because I generally use TD picks for strumming, but since this pick has a more rounded tip, I knew it would be less bright and warmer than my TD picks for lead or single-string playing. I am very satisfied with the sound and playability of this pick. Perhaps because of its shape, I believe I can feel it sliding off the strings with less friction than other picks. It sticks to your fingers, but slides off the strings! Of course, Blue Chip is a great company and it has been a pleasure dealing with them whenever I've needed to write or talk to someone directly. I've never completed a transaction with Blue Chip and been unhappy. I want to like my TD picks more, but I really love this shape of TAD-3R. At any shape, in terms of quality, Blue Chips are the best picks ever made.

  8. Great mando pick. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 5th Dec 2017

    Great mando pick. It grips you and it glides over the strings!

  9. Never, ever slips 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 2nd Nov 2017

    I love this plectrum. I use it for my mando and guitar. They are difficult to find in my dark brown carpet or at the campground, so I have a pouch for each one on each instrument. Now all I have to do is remember to put them in it! That is a small cost to protect a GREAT product.

  10. Just awesome 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 30th Oct 2017

    After hearing all the buzz and hype around Blue Chip picks I finally bit the bullet and ordered one up. The service was fast, and I had it within a few days of ordering. I can’t believe how great it sounds on my D18. It’s improved my speed and accuracy as well. Can’t recommend it highly enough.
