Hi there friends!
Some year ago heard about these "expensive picks" and I had to see for myself what all the fuzz was about.
I received some samples of the Blue Chip picks some days ago and these picks totally blew me away. They are far more comfortable than all picks I have ever used. The tone is clear and the glide off the strings so smoothly it´s unbelievable!

I still like my Wegens but these actually sound better and are so much easier to play with.

My favorite model is TP1R-40. It is a 1.0 mm 3-corner pick.

I was a die-hard wegen fan for about a year, untill I found these. In fact, I even started the Wegen Picks page! LOL! I liked the bluechips so much, I am now a bluechip dealer.

Tim: The picks are almost impossible to wear out and they are ultra-smooth so they glide off the strings very, very easy whick makes them faster than other picks. They also stick to your fingers like no other pick I have every used. I have been playing with my Blue Chips for some months now and I have never dropped them so far.

The tone is also very, very good. No pick noise but still warm and full with lots of overtones. Go to www.bluechippick.net and check them out!

Great pick. Best I have used. Great tones and does not seem to wear out.

I purchased one a few months ago. I like them, but I like a smaller pick. I play a Fender 451 size TS pick that I have custom made for me. The Blue chip is slick and I get decent tone from it...I'd like to see them made smaller. I got a TD-50. I will, someday, make this one smaller. Happy picking!

These are great picks, and the company offers great service too. I found that I liked the thinner "35" material, but that they only offered that in the teardrop "TD" shape. I asked Matthew if he had any plans to ever use it in the bigger "TPR" shape, which I prefer. He said he would custom-make one for me, and that I could trade it for the thicker TPR I already had. It arrived in just a few days, and it's the perfect pick for me right now (I say "right now" only because, like a lot of guitar players, I tend to be pick-fickle and may change my mind eventually). Anyway, they made me a satisfied customer and even a marginally better picker. Unfortunately, they just sell picks, not talent.

Great picks but . . . I have had four Blue Chip picks. Lost two and broke two. Seems the fates don't want me to use them. I now use Clayton Ultems; cut my own speed bevel and buff to a glass-like finish - can hardly tell the difference from the BC's - at least not enough to justify the 50X price differential.

Aren't they guaranteed from breakage?
Comment by ganon on January 24, 2010 at 8:08pm
30 days and no modifications - I fail on both counts.
Comment by Bob Dodd on January 25, 2010 at 5:38am
Ganon: I still prefer my Blue Chip TPR for most things. Funny, though, for spares and just for picks lying around the house, I do exactly what you do with Clayton Ultems, and I agree they are a pretty good substitute. I tend to play them with the shoulder, though, rather than the tip.

"Very nice, clean, rendition of this old civil war song, and the tone of your guitars is great! (You know that Elvis recorded this in the 1950's as "Love Me Tender?")  Wish I had  ason to pick with!"
