I ordered another BC, turned out it was the wrong size. The crew swapped it cia mail no fuss. 10/10
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.
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!
