  1. better than the real thing 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 26th Sep 2017

    I've been searching for the perfect pick for 35 years. I finally settled on a 1940's era pick I inherited that was made from real tortoise shell. Not a product you can, or should, ever buy.

    Blue Chip picks deliver all three things I look for in a pick:
    1) Pure sound--bright, and without any "pick noise".
    2) Speed. Most plastic picks rub against the string and slow you down. Not Blue Chip picks. They just
    3) Volume. Blue chip picks are rigid and sturdy enough to deliver a good 20% more volume than the even a natural tortoise shell pick can deliver.

    Finally, an amazing and sustainabily sourced pick that can deliver the best tone, speed, and volume of any pick available--hands down,

  2. finally the quest is over 5 Star Review

    Like most guitarists ive been on the search for the perfect pick. Search over!! Best feel,quality,durability. Theres not even a close second

  3. best for speed and tone 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 19th Dec 2016

    The narrower tip allows speed at many angles to the attack. Yet the thick nose on the pick allows a thick vintage tone with a greasy feel over the strings. The grease factor or reduction in the co effieient of friction allows speedy passeges afforded by the shape. It keeps the vintage tone. The ones less than 80 thick sound cheaper to my ears. A loosely held thick pick always sounds better to me than a thinner pick unless rounded nose. If uve never played a TD 80 u wont know how good u are. Ur technique will develop to take advantage of the shape and material.

  4. Tone zone 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 5th Jul 2016

    This is the second TD80 I have purchased. I play mandolin and guitar, and I use no bevel on the pick. After a year of several hours daily playing, the pick has developed slight bevels on each shoulder (I pick with the shoulder). It doesn't affect my playing that much, but I wanted a separate TD80 for guitar and mando, so I bought another. The tone is out of this world, and crushes the delrins I previously used (same thickness). Highly recommended for those with a heavy right hand and powerful attack.

  5. Best Gypsy Jazz Pick 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 27th Jun 2016

    This pick is the perfect thickness for me and the way it glides across the strings makes the right-hand an effortless complement to the challenges of playing across the fingerboard in this style of music.

    I've tried dozens of pics including real tortoise shell pics from the '70s and nothing comes close to the invisible feeling and gorgeous tone that these picks produce.

  6. My Favorite Pick 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 29th Mar 2016

    I do flatpicking so my TD80 is ideal for me. It's thick, sharp, and durable!

  7. Best purchase for immediate tone improvement 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 4th Feb 2016

    I've been playing for 43 years. Both professionally and teaching. For acoustic playing this pick has an immediate positive impact on the tone, feel, clarity, and speed. I purchased the TD-80 and Jazz 80 LG. The TD-80 with no speed bevel; produces a much warmer tone then the Jazz 80LG. Not that the Jazz 80LG is overly bright or tinny; just that the TD-80 is warmer; I believe due to the difference in the tip point. It made my Taylor GA5 Cedar/Mahogany, go from being a too bright instrument; to bringing the tone into a very desirable sound. The price is high; would be nice if it was lower; so I'd recommend the great little wooden box for safe storage.

  8. Almost perfect 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 2nd Nov 2015

    I've been beating up my TD-80 for the past two years, playing 4+ hours daily, and it barely shows any sign of wear. For those who balk at the price, consider how many picks you'd normally go through. The tone is great, the speed you can achieve is phenomenal. Really, my only complaint is that the surface is slick, making it a little hard to hang onto when my hands get sweaty on stage. Bluechip, you might consider creating a textured version. That would make an already great pick into the perfect one.

  9. Just wasn't my thing, but. . . 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 17th May 2015

    I was able to return this one plus two others for a full refund + the shipping. Very cool to deal with. I've been playing thirty-three years, and I guess I've already found the picks that I need for "my sound" for each of my guitars. These were nice, though.

  10. FINALLY!!! A pick that works! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 16th Apr 2014

    A pick that lasts, and feels the same EVERY time! I've spent years looking for the right pick, thank you Blue Chip! After a month of intense use this pick is barely showing a scratch of ware and I love the tone it pulls out of my Martin Tyminski custom signature series guitar! The tacky grip Blue Chip picks have is also a plus in aiding you to hold it without it turning or moving around. And thank you Blue Chip for a REAL pick at last!
