  1. Very Versatile Pick 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 1st Sep 2015

    First of all, I love Blue Chip Picks, and yes they are worth what they cost. What I like most about this pick is the ability to switch back and forth between the round tip and the pointed tip. I tend to use the round tip for rhythm work and then spin it for lead. Great Pick.

  2. Best picks out there! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 1st Jun 2015

    Well worth the money! I have been playing Blue Chip picks for 3 years now and have not used anything else since. Before I had used Wegen, Golden Gate and shell picks. To me, the BC is right on par with the shell in terms of tone and exceeds it in playability, speed, etc. as well as being maintenance free. In 3 years, my picks have absolutely NO wear! Only very very fine scratches that you have to hold in the right light to see. I like the TAD 60 3R for mandolin and the 50 and 60 1Rs for guitar. I usually have one on each instrument and another in my leather BC key ring pouch. Thank you Blue Chip!

  3. TAD 1r 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 4th May 2015

    I love this pick! It is the most comfortable pick I've ever used, and the tone is so very clear, but not brittle. I have ordered several others because of the quality and playability of these products.

  4. A believer 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 2nd Apr 2015

    Like so many others, I had to hear what a $35 pick sounded like. Turns out, so good that I ordered a TAD60 a few weeks after getting the TAD60 - 1R. I was worried that the BC picks would be too bright (particularly with the bevels) but they're not. While I'd rather use a 1.5 ProPlec and have dozens of them in reserve for the price of one BC, the fact is the BC sounds better - at least on my instrument - and is worth the extra money.

  5. TAD1R-60 is a really nice pick! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 14th Jan 2015

    I previously purchased the CT55, which I just love. Had an opportunity to get another, so I thought I'd try the thicker pick with the rounded corner. Nice!
    The rounded is great for tremolo, lets out a nice breathy sound.

  6. TAD60-1R is 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 10th Jan 2015

    good. very good.

    I recently ordered the TAD60-1R as my introduction into the bluechip lineup. It only took a week of using it before I ordered two more bluechips, the TD60 and the TP60-1R. They are fantastic, better than any other pick I have, and probably will, ever use.

    I play solely electric- Fender Strat and Fender Mustang. Strings: TI 14-55 on strat, and Galla nylon tapewound 14-67 on mustang. Play mainly lead rock style guitar, think jimi + gilmour.

    I, before delving into the expensive side of guitar picks, had used pretty exclusively the Fender medium, and other .73 picks- nylon and ultex assorted. I also found a favourite in the Eric Johnson Jazz 3s and Dunlop Jazztone series which are excellent as well. But then came a day when my innocence was lost, and i found out about bluechip, red bear, V-pick, and I of course had to try them. This was also around the time I amped up my string gauges, and suddenly my thin plastic picks felt very thin, and very plasticky. I picked up a v-pick, traditional ultra light, which i did like more than anything else I had tried. But i knew I would not be satisfied until I tried a bluechip so I dove in with the TAD60-1R. Now I can't go back.

    Compared to the V-picks the TAD60-1R just sounds simply better. The tone is more lively, and noticeably more natural. Volume is increased, especially when played unplugged, which I often do. The pick is faster, and more precise- with both edges.

    Compared to the plastic mass market picks, the TAD60-1R feels like an extension of your fingers. Feel is increased to a point where I only use the old picks to remind myself that the bluechips are fantastic.

    Compared to the Wegen Gypsy Jazz, The TAD60-1R is slightly slower, but louder and brighter. The wegen is a fast pick, but does not offer a well pronounced note so much as it does a scraped one. For my purposes the TAD60-1R is much better, as I am more about the sound and pronunciation.

    Compared to the TD60, the TAD60-1R is louder and offers a more pronounced note. However, I find the TD60 a little more versatile sound wise when using the round edges. The contrast is greater than in the TAD60-1R. However, I prefer the sound quality out of the TAD60-1R. A little trickier to manoeuvre, but the sound is worth it-- so clear and defined.

    Compared to the TP60-1R, the TAD60-1R is bigger and sounds bigger. The TP60-1R feels faster, and offers better note pronunciation than the TD60, but it is not as pronounced as the TAD60-1R.

    Although big at first, and slightly slower than other bluechip options, the TAD60-1R is the best pick I have ever used. Thanks Bluechip, now my favourite pick cost $35.

  7. An amazing pick with incredible tone 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 30th Dec 2014

    The TAD 60-1R is a great pick. I use it on mandolin and I find that both the pointed and rounded edges work great and give me exactly the tone I need. I was previously using the Proplec and the Blue Chip gives me more volume and speed. The pick comes off the strings quickly and also sticks to my fingers. I have yet to drop one and I tend to drop picks.

  8. Pick and Grin! 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 26th Aug 2014

    TAD 60-1R is a good match for me. Electric, acoustic guitar, mandolin and even bass guitar. I've played stringed instruments for nearly 50 years and have suffered some nerve damage and arthritis in recent years, but this pick is easy to hold on. Obviously very responsive and powerful. Love the versatility of having both pointed and round tips. Expensive enough I opted to pay extra $5 for my name engraved!

  9. TAD60-1R 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 22nd May 2014

    I have a few different Blue Chip picks. For Bluegrass and Country playing on my dreadnought, it is by far and away the best sounding and smoothest playing. I like the two different points two.

    Everytime I try an old cheaper pick...well I don't do that anymore.

  10. TAD 1-R 60 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 12th May 2014

    I have been using Blue Chip now for about two years. I have several of them and have found they are pretty much everything they are cracked up to be. I experimented with different shapes and finally settled on the TAD-1R 60 for mandolin.

    Slick but tacky with no string noise. Great attack and release due to the beveling, and no wear. The new engraving extra is pretty nice too.

    I have tried nearly everything from Red Bear, Golden Gate, Wegan, etc. You won't regret this pick. Just be sure what shape and thickness you want prior to ordering.

    Good luck!
