BlueChip Faux Tortoise CT55 Pick
BlueChip CT55 Flatpick
The CT55 is a pick custom designed by Chris Thile for his personal use. It is very similar in size and shape to the TAD line of picks. However it is only manufactured in 55/1000 of an inch (1.4mm) thickness and has a custom bevel per his specifications. This is the exact pick that Chris Thile is currently using.
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 patent pending material has great tone and speed like tortoise with none of the drawbacks. BlueChip Picks are precision machined and never need polishing because they do not flake at the corners like tortoise shell picks do. Their self lubricating properties make them extremely fast. If you have been using tortoise picks to get that special tone and speed, try a BlueChip and you will never go back.
