  1. Nice feel 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 16th Jul 2021

    I like the feel of the material, releases smoothly and quietly off the strings, especially the rounded corner. Not a bad thing, but the size was larger than I expected. I would consider a smaller shape next time, but it won't prevent me from enjoying this pick as is. This is luxury, but easily the nicest pick I own and actually a reasonable sum compared to some of the other expensive accessories I buy......

  2. Fantastic pick! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 15th Jun 2021

    Ok, it seems weird to be excited about a guitar pick. And yes, it’s expensive. But I consider the analogy of a car and tires, “where the rubber meets the road”. If you don’t have a connection with the pick, you don’t play with the same confidence. I find myself playing with more expression, and the practice time goes by quickly. I’m grateful to find this source, and will probably order another one. But they last a while too. I just wouldn’t want to be without it now that I’ve experienced it.

  3. Blue Chip is a pickers dream... 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 29th Oct 2019

    I’ve been using Blue Chip picks for several years now. They are very consistent do not wear out stay lubricated and are comfortable in my right hand. I very much appreciate the rounded corner on this particular pick....love it so much that I’ve given a couple of them away to my students and friends. I have only broken one....don’t even know how it happened but I will be playing Blue Chip picks until I die.

  4. GREAT For Electric! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 27th Jun 2019


    I have two other 50 picks which were too stiff for electric. Excellent for flatpicking acoustic but too hard for me on electric. Too bright on rhythm playing.

    40 is PERFECT! I love the 1 rounded corner but think I want all 3 rounded as the sharp corners again too bright.

    Not the tone I like on the acoustic. I'll stick with the 50! At least I know now! I'll be buying more...maybe today! Best picks made!

  5. Superb !! 5 Star Review

    Best feeling, sounding and longest lasting pick I’ve ever used

  6. My Favorite Pick 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 8th Jan 2019

    Easy to handle, versatile pick with round and pointed edge makes for good variation in tone.

  7. Great pick 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 7th Nov 2018

    It is a great pick, with a shape which is really comfortable to hold. The tone is also very nice and natural as usual with BlueChip picks.

  8. TP40-1R ($35 is not expensive!) 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 8th Jun 2018

    Many people have sticker shock at the $35 price tag for a pick--but let me tell you, that is LOW-COST for the improved quality of sound for your instrument (which you spent hundreds if not thousands of dollars on... plus maintenance and strings and amps and accessories). A fiddle's sound can be ruined by a lousy bow (us fiddlers spend upwards of $400 or even $1,000 for a quality bow), and the same extends to pick instruments.

    I bought this pick to replace a TP40-1R I lost. I've used the TP40-1R for 3 years now, and love the grip, strength, and speed bevel. The pick doesn't have the same "clicking" sound many picks have, and despite its strength (maintains bevel and tip shape for years (probably decades for an amateur like me) it is not rigid--it still has some give. Also, if you've never played a pick with a speed bevel, there's nothing like it. You'll also be amazed by how comfortable you get with your picking hand when your pick is not constantly being eroded by your playing (which leads to change in your pick-hand technique!).

    I recommend finding the Blue Chip booth at a music festival so you can trial the many different styles of pick shapes and widths.

    cool !!!

  10. Great Grip 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 1st Mar 2018

    The grip is really fantastic on these picks. Much better than V or Gravity. $35 is steep for a pick and I will certainly cry if I lose it.
