Blue Chip TAD-1R40 Pick - 1.00mm

BlueChip picks are the perfect connection to your instrument. Nothing comes close to the seamless relationship Blue Chip picks give you. The goal of Blue Chip picks is to get out of your way, to allow you to forget about the pick and just create without thought of wear, slippage, and poor tone. Each pick is handcrafted in Franklin, Tennnessee.

The greatest players in the world are calling BlueChip Picks the greatest guitar, mandolin, and thumb picks in the world. Many amazing musicians have dropped their other picks and picked up a BlueChip.

These picks are produced from a very high-grade, self-lubricating composite material specially formulated for great playing qualities. These one-of-a-kind picks cannot be found anywhere else in the world. The patented material has great tone and speed and their self-lubricating properties make them extremely fast.

The TAD-1R pick is identical to the traditional triangle pick TAD, but with one rounded corner for more tonal options.

    Bluechip TAD

    If you're flatpicker there is no better way to maximise your tone and volume than with Bluechip picks. I like the TAD 50 or TAD 50 1R. 1.2mm and tri-cornered (gives you 3 times the life). The density of these picks is huge and the sounds are about as good or better than anything else on the market.

    Blue Chip picks - are they worth the money?

    There is no question that Blue Chip picks are the best out there, all the great bluegrass players use them. But at $79 a pick are they worth the money? I tried to do a comparison with other top range picks around and my conclusion is that yes they provide the absolute best tone for flatpick guitar, no question. However, the downside is that they are very shiny (read slippery) and for me with dry skin very hard to manage. I even bought some Pickers Grip (a beeswax based pick grip aid) and that gave great results but I still couldn't control the pick which keep slipping in my fingers, not much good if you keep gettiping the side edge rather than the point. They are a bit smaller that Tortex tri-corner picks which sit nicely in the finger. In the end I settled for the Clayton Ultex pick which gave about 90% of the tone of a Blue Chip but were easy to manage and didn't slip. The Clatons cost about $2 each compared with $79. By the way both picks were 1.2mm thick. End result, I'm not using the Blue Chips, I tried hard but just too hard to deal with and at $79 each, nah!
