    Re: Chris Thile, E Major Prelude

    Chris plays with a Wegen TF 140. IT was posted on the cafe that he was using a blue chip pick but I dont know for sure. When I saw him in March he was using the Wegen.

    Re: Chris Thile using BlueChips exclusively

    I have read the previous posts about the blue chip picks in the 400 or so threads that have popped up (obvious exaggeration). My issue was not so much the pick cost of 35.00 but the fact that Tn is...

    Re: Chris Thile using BlueChips exclusively

    I know enough about business to know that if you have an $80k machine and a $55k machine to cut picks, then you must be selling enough to justify having that machine. There is no way I would buy that...

    I personally think that if you want to get a bluechip because Chris uses it, then by all means get one. The most important part to all this is the fact that you are happy with what you're playing and...
