"I had been machining this composite material for 10 years that costs $4,800 for a 10"x10" square," said Matthew Goins, Blue Chip president.
"One day I noticed an employee shaping a tortoise pick in the shop and a discussion led to the idea of forming a pick from the composite. Goins took his prototype to several music festivals and quickly found out that he had something truly special. Not only was the tone great, but the material has a self-lubricating quality that reduces friction allowing for faster and more precise playing. Goins worked for two years to refine his picks. "I wanted to raise the bar for pick design," he said. I contacted Blue Chip owner Matthew Goins and he sent samples. Blue Chip picks are available in six different versions; there's a traditional teardrop shape, a pointed three-sided pick, and a rounded three-sided pick: each shape is available in 1mm (.040") or 1.25mm (.050") thicknesses. Goins sent two pointed three sided picks - a 1mm and a 1,25mm, as well as one 1.25mm rounded three-sided. Goins told me "The material we use is extremely expensive. It costs $3300 for a 1/2" thick 10" square piece. I spent many hours figuring out how to maximize our yield from each square so we could offer picks at $35. We use an $80,000 CNC machine to cut picks to a tolerance of +/- .002". Goins doesn't yet sell to retail dealers because he says there would be no profit margin. Matt Goins got right back to me and offered to send me one to review if I sent him my address, so I did.
