  1. Like it a lot, wish I had selected the next thickness maybe 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 10th Sep 2021

    This is my first Blue Chip pick. I really like having the rounded corner of the TP501R for those times when I want a softer attack. I purchased it primarily to use as an acoustic pick, but I'm equally impressed with it on my electrics. Everything I've read about the BCs were also my experience - nicely beveled, a minimum of pick noise, very comfortable non slip grip.

    The only reason I gave it four stars vs five is that it's slightly brighter than I expected. I was seeking a darker attack for my acoustic tone. I'm thinking I should have gone for the next thickness. In a way I can't fault the pick for that, but at $35 a pop that's a pretty expensive trial and error experiment. Down the road if I buy another I will definitely size up one thickness.

  2. I just keep buying more! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 12th Apr 2021

    This is my 4th BC, including the one I foolishly lost at a festival. These have my favourite string attack of any pick, and this 50 with one rounded corner is superb for acoustic and electric guitar. I’d previously owned 35s in TD Shape and this 50 is a great step up in volume and also resistance to the strings. I recently received a 55 as a gift and I just love them all. The stiffness of the 50 is ideal, for me. Thanks BC! Great pick! Oh, and if someone found my Monogrammed TD35 at that festival, please make great use of it!

  3. wonderful pick with options! 5 Star Review

    This is so far my favorite pick. Like the one rounded edge for tonal variations. I play bluegrass music and bought the TP1R 50. Thickness is perfect for great tone.

  4. Can't do without it 5 Star Review

    I recommend these picks to everyone and have used one myself for the last few years with my mandolin. I just lost my last one and had to order a new one right away.

  5. TP-1R50 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 19th Aug 2019

    BlueChip picks are great. I ended up deciding to exchange the 50 gauge for a TP-1R 60. BlueChip made the exchange easy. I would still like to have a 50, and I will probably order an STP50. For the TP size, I’m a little more comfortable with the thicker 60. Great quality picks.

  6. The TP50-1R is the best all-round pick for me. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 28th Mar 2019

    I've currently have a TP50-1R, TP60-1R, and a CT55. I had a TD50 and even though I've always used teardrop shaped picks in the past, for some reason the material Blue Chip uses and the way it interacts with the string makes me prefer the larger size picks and that preference now allows me greater accuracy when alternate picking without posting. I give all 3 types of picks I have now 5 stars (see those reviews if you're interested) but the TP50-1R is the best all-round pick for acoustic, electric, or arch top. The sound is crystal clear, the feel of it inspires confidence that you will be accurate in your picking and the one rounded corner is a wonderful and useful option. The other two are also pick-heaven for me but if I had to order another one for backup it would be the TP50-1R. Just the greatest pick ever!

  7. GREAT product 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 8th Jan 2019

    Great sounding and feeling pick. I love shell, but no pick glides off strings like a BC. Expensive! But worth it. I really like the rounded corner as well.

  8. TP-1R 50 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 19th Nov 2018

    I purchased this pick for playing bluegrass and swing guitar.
    I chose this pick for the 2-beveled points and the rounded shoulder and the thickness.
    I use all of them depending on the needs of the tune being played.
    Really nice pick, good thickness, nicely balanced, never slips in my fingers and it produces strong, woody tones from my Martin Hd-28.
    I have owned 2 CT-55's (10+years) for my mandolins and love them. They show almost no ware at all.

    Although I love a heavy pick for guitar, I may look to pick up a TP-1R 40 in the future as the feel may be even better.

    Do I recommend BlueChip picks...Absolutely, just protect it like shell.

  9. Great pick! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 25th Oct 2018

    This thing is lovely! If anything, the next one for me will be a smaller one, but that's just how to hold it. Definitely going to get at least another, just not sure which thickness yet. But the sweet tone this thing lets pop out of the instrument as it lets go of the strings is awesome. Ridiculous price, especially buying from the UK and effectively paying 50 GBP for a pick, but still soooo worth it, especially if you're serious about recording. Will guard with my life. lol

  10. The best 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 2nd Jul 2018

    This pick is the perfect size and feel. I mostly use the pointed edges, but it's nice to have the rounded tip for the times I want a darker sound. I've been using this pick for everything from flatpicking to jazz, and on all my guitars. These are the best picks I've ever used.
