"Daryl, I got into a guitar store while I was on vacation, and I hadn't brought my BlueChip. I tried to lay down some fiddle tunes on a couple of the guitars in the store and was quickly reminded why I play the BlueChip all the time. It was like…"

"Ordered one last night to try (the large triangle). I didn't know for sure what thickness to order. I like medium picks for acoustic guitar so I ordered a 1.25mm. Hope that correlates to a medium. I'm anxious to try it out. Tom"

"I just love my TAD 40 "lefty". I keep trying other picks for comparative purposes, but always end up using the Blue Chip. Fully worth the $35 IMHO."

Arthur Knowler replied to William Gray's discussion Heavy Picks Anyone?
"I have a left handed Blue Chip TAD 3R 40 pick and I find it a great pick to use, no scraping and quick on the strings. The only problem is that the tone is quite bass-y which is great for lead picking or Mandolin but not so good for rhythm…"

Tim Allred contact

Howdy.  I'm a guitar maker and I got an inquiry from one Tim Allred on my contact form that I use on my website to try to cut down on spam.  Unfortunately he didn't give a phone number and he gave an email address that will accept messages only from addresses that are on his list--which obviously mine is not.  So my messages have all been returned to me.  There are many Tim Allreds around.  I noticed that this site has a member by that name, who is clearly interested in guitars, so I though…See More
