Slots are too narrow for 5th and 6th strings of light gauge string set

By


I bought mine on Amazon, but supplied by StewMac. I did not see the slot spec and did not think to check. When I tried seating the 6th string, it was impossible because the nut was not able to seat against the bridge. Maybe this was a sign that the pin diameter is too large for my Martin 0-28? Anyhow, I'm not too happy about the $41 I paid. Martin pin is on the left in my photo.

I wouldn't expect anything less from Waverly

Everything I've ever purchased from Waverly has been top shelf. These bone pins with abalone inlay are no exception. They are beautiful and were a perfect fit in my Eastman E20. I highly recommend them. Stew Mac turn around was quick as usual.

I love these bridge pins. They are classy and I always use therm with an ebony bridge. I'm convinced that enhance the sound of the instrument as well.

Pins seem to be of good quality, but they are oversized. Too large in diameter to fit my Martin D-35 (or they have the wrong taper). In any case, they do not seat as they should.

Whew. Something else required. Why?

These are lovely. They did not fit the holes in my bridge, much too big. But a few minutes with my drill and they work just fine. Did I mention they are lovely?

Very Nice

I have been putting these on all my acoustics. Some of the abalone dots are not very colorful or noticeable. I had to send some back. If you can, order an extra set so you can pick and choose them.

The pins were as nice as I expected them to be. They were handpicked for color; and they were pretty close to a match; as good as you could expect from natural products. They made my old beat up Martin really stand out. I have to be honest; it is difficult to say if I noticed a difference in sound quality; I think the sound is slightly brighter; but that's pretty subjective. I would always recommend you check the diameter of each pin before reaming the bridge. There were slight inconsistencies at the crown of the pins. As long as you are aware and patient if you are installing; it's not a problem. If a shop is installing with a fixture/jig; it possibly could cause a concern. Very nice!
