Tusq Bridge Pins

I own a Guild D-50 Purchase at Manny's in New York in 1972.. I recently added a tusq bridge and started use Thomasik-infield strings. the strings are thick at the ball end so I had to get new bridge pins. These pins are great more sustain and quicker to tune with a Peterson strobe tuner.

Tusq pins

Fitted these recently to my D18GE (has a bone bridge/nut combo) + new set of phosph bronze strings. Yes...I would say there's a bit of diff from the stock wood pins this D18 had on. Very clear note articulation, less harsh - better than before...smoother tone really. Will see if this effect remains as strings age. So far ... so good!

Close but no cigar

These pins sound great on my Yamaha, but don't fit my import guitar. I was pretty bummed that I had to return them.

Best bridge pins

These are the finest bridge pins for my acoustic guitar. They improved my sound, intonation and my sustain. The bass and treble string note separation makes chords and single notes sound clear. I could not be any happier.

Great For Martins

I needed something that was thinner than the standard Martins so I googled gauge on all pins I could find. These were the thinnest and now I can palmmute my HD28 without having to do any drilling :-)

Good Quality, but I Wish I Looked Around First

I have no complaints about these TUSQ bridge pins and will continue to buy them; however, I wish I didn't get 3-degree taper bridge pins and a reamer to go with it. There is more of a variety if you go with a 5-degree reamer and bridge pins.

Tusq Saddle and bridge pins

I have been playing acoustic guitar since 1965 and doing set up and minor repairs since 1973. I installed the Tusq saddle and bridge pins on my Guild GV-52 as an experiment to see if the sound would improve over the old cow bone saddle and buffalo horn pins I had previously installed. The sound change was very subtle. Nothing dramatic at all. I would describe the difference as a bit warmer and less bright than the bone. Also there was a slight drop in volume and clarity when finger picked.. The guild still has beautiful tone but I prefer the sound of the tried and true natural materials to the synthetic Tusq. Maybe I'm just old school. My dog however prefers the Tusq, hoping that I will stop cutting up her old cow bones.

Tusq Bridge Pins

I had a Dalton Acoustic guitar that was too tight and needed some tone shaping. I took it to a local luthier and he recommended these bridge pins. He installed the pins and scalloped the bracing and wow, what amazing sound. I bought a set for my daughters Martin DM and the sustain has increased and the sound is more dynamic. Every guitar could benefit from a set of these if not already installed. A real value!

new sound for a old guitar

After buying a new Martin, my thirty one year old Alverez sounded a little dull. My options were simple,a new vintage bone saddle with a set of Tusq bridge pins. When I received my order, I removed the new pins to inspect them. One of them fell onto the table and the sound it made surprised me.

These were not a plastic product. When I finnished the new saddle and changed the strings using the Tusq bridge pins the results were amazing. The pins fit without any modification and the whole prosses was very quick. The sustain was grately improved and the tone was spot on. This only improved as the new strings broke in. I am hooked on this very simple improvement and will be modifing all of my acoustic guitars with this product.
