I was blown away when I first tried a TD 45 Blue Chip Pick in the studio. The difference in tone compared to the other picks I had been using was undeniable. It was durable, very easy to hold and literally almost stuck to my fingers!
The handmade picks are made of a specially formulated composite material, and contain lubricants which make the picks very fast off the strings. Solos that were once hard to play on mandolin are much easier because the picks are extremely slick on the strings. I didn’t have to work as hard to get a good, warm, full tone.
I can testify Blue Chips are extremely well made. I have been using the same TD 45 for about two years now, and it has survived hundreds of sweaty shows and countless hours of playing.
Blue Chip allows me to forget about the pick getting in the way, poor tone, or durability issues and focus on the connection between the instrument and my brain. A musician is only as good as his tools. If you want to play at a higher level, using a quality pick is essential. I recommend Blue Chip Picks. You can find more information at www.bluechippicks.net
