  1. Great Pick 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 24th Aug 2021

    I have this pick in sizes 40, 50 and 60. These are my favorite picks. They have very little click. As you increase the thickness the sound gets fuller. I use all these and change them up to match the sound I'm looking for.

  2. Good Pick 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 5th Nov 2019

    TAD60-1R is my favorite of the 3 Blue Chip picks I've tried. Good for acoustic and electric. My brother in law took my pick when he heard it even though it had my name engraved on it. I just ordered another, this time without a speed bevel.
    Immediate improvement on acoustic in attack, warmth and overtones compared with the TPR60 with speed bevel.
    Also prefer the TAD60-1R on electric.

    Best compromise I can find for everything my ear wants to hear.

  4. The perfect pick... really! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 1st Jul 2019

    I am reviewing as a mandolin player. First, in my experience--and I have tried many, many of the best rated picks out there--BlueChip picks are absolutely unparalleled. I don't need to spend much time reiterating what other reviewers have amply noted. These picks bring out the depth of woody tones of the instrument; they also produce a clean and focused sound--bright but not sharp; they glide smoothly but don't slip; they last virtually forever. I have several different kinds of BC picks. I've mostly settled on the TAD-1R 60 as my go-to pick for my modern mandos: five stars doesn't capture how highly I esteem this particular pick. Let me add here another wonderful thing about BlueChip. Their return policy. You can return a pick (non-personalized) within 30 days and get a replacement or a refund. I have twice returned a pick to receive a different pick instead. The service is prompt, no questions asked, really top-notch. I have nothing but praise for this company and its products. I do occasionally use other picks for particular sounds and situations--Wegen, EML, Wolle, Dunlop mostly--but I'm using BlueChips 80% of the time. If premium sound and playability are your goals, these picks are worth every penny.

  5. Just excellent 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 10th Apr 2018

    Just bought my second BC. I bought a TAD-1R60 2 years ago on the advice of an experienced mandolin player, after having settled on Wegen TF140's for practically all my instruments. The difference between the BC & the Wegen is astounding. For my bluegrass mandolin, there's nothing else that sounds as good or pulls more personality out of it. The Wegen, while good, is not the sound I had in my head, whereas the BC is it and more.

    I have used PrimeTone 1.5's, but I personally don't see any similarity between them and Blue Chips. They're not in the same ballpark!

  6. Tonal Versatility 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 28th Feb 2018

    The TAD-1R 60 is one of the best picks I've ever used. I love the different point/corner shapes. Its perfect for drawing different tonal qualities out of the instrument. Pointy for a brighter tone, round for a darker tone. Love this pick!

  7. Blue Chip TAD-1R 60 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 24th Jan 2018

    Well I now know what all the fuss is about. I could never see myself paying $35.00 for a pick, and believe me, I bet I spent over a hundred buy other picks instead. But I finally gave in, and I am glad I did. This pick has an amazing tone and brings out the best in my guitars and mandolins. It grips amazingly well. Having the one side rounded is perfect for those extended tremolo parts. I find myself using it the majority of the time. One thing is how clear and sweet my mandolin sounds when picking lightly. I would buy it again in a sec. In fact, I am about to order another one because I love this one so much.

    This was a gift from my wife, tried it and love it. The only pick I use now. Very pleased.

  9. For Years My Wife Has Been Finding Picks in the Washing Machine 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 13th Dec 2017

    Not any more, BlueChip picks are definitely worth the investment, and they get the high quality treatment in our studio. Love the warmth when playing acoustic guitar, and the bevel options for playing styles.

  10. 35 bucks for a pick? You bet! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 27th Nov 2017

    Rick Faris, who plays guitar for “Special Concensus”, a wonderful touring blue grass band, told me, and the other 12 guitarists in his class at Walker Creek Music Camp about the Blue Chip pick. As an intermediate guitarist, I thought, right, me? Play a 35 dollar pick. Well, I did, and do, and ther blue chip pick is worth every cent and more. I actually purchased a 40, 50 and 60 and a thumb pick. Guitar is a passion, and everyday experience - why not enjoy using the best pick ever. I have tried many picks (and love the folks at V-Pick). The blue chip is well worth the dough, it feels great in my hand and elcits the Loveliest nuance and tone from your fine guitar.
