Chopping the ends off bridge pins

If you're not careful, installing new strings can create a problem that throws you out of tune or damages your bridge pin holes. Elliot John-Conry of EJC Guitars shows us an easy fix.

Bone bridge pins just ok

By

Verified Buyer


I got these bone bridge pins because they were suppose to make my Taylor guitar sound better. Was sorry I bought them because the ebony pins provided by Taylor still sounded better. I researched Youtube looking at video of people who did a comparison on bone pins vs ebony and I couldn't tell any difference, I suppose if you had a DB meter to measure the volume in a VERY sophisticated manner you might tell the difference, but not enough to pay $40 for. Since I had to file them down a few thousands of an inch to fit the holes I naturally felt I couldn't return them for a refund. SayLaVee.

Exactly What I Required

Verified Buyer


I purchased these pins as a result of accidentally shattering one of my bone pins that I had previously purchased for my Gibson Hummingbird. They were a perfect match in size and color. The quality is unsurpassed and hopefully these will outlast the earlier pins I purchased.

Your products are always "top notch"!

Consider Bone Bridge Pins

By

Verified Buyer


I bought this set of pins for my Martin OM-16. After I installed them, I noticed they weren't perfectly level like the previous plastic pins were.
Bone bridge pins make my guitar sound clearer and brighter, which I like. I'm now considering buying a set of black bone pins for my dreadnaught guitar.

Bone Bridge Pins

I use these as a standard on all my guitars. I do have to open the slots up to fit the wound strings and chipping can be created by the ball of the string if it is too tight . But this is the nature of the beast I suppose with the bone being so hard and we use them because they are hard and transfer vibration well.

The Standard

By

Verified Buyer


I feel like these are respected as the standard for bluegrass instruments. I have several old sets of pins, and lately I've been using some great StewMac Waverly tortoise plastic pins, but I've wanted to go back to bone, so I got these to start fresh. These actually have a lower "center of gravity" tone wise than the plastic ones, which can be tested by dropping them on a counter top. To me they give the guitar a nice high midrange emphasis and a slightly less sparkly sound than the others. I use unslotted pins on all my good acoustics.

Pins don't fit my '09 D-28 ... I had to enlarge the bridge holes.

Jewelry for my D-18GE

Great looking pins. Highly polished natural bone, varying in color from cafe au lait to rich caramel.

They sound great, too. The guitar is even louder than before. Lots of sustain and clarity. Granted, the guitar already had most of that, but the pins certainly didn't hurt anything.

The pins fit nicely. All I did was file a 35° angle on the tips, so they don't get hung up on the ball end of the string.

Good quality

These are nice bridge pins. The diameters at the top are consistent. I have purchased bridge pins from other sources that were not. At .220, you might have to do a little reaming to get them to seat as low as they should, but that's actually a good thing. The tops are not too big as others have stated (IMO). They look fine to me. Much nicer than cheesy plastic. i bought the un-slotted pins and slotted the bridge pin holes on both of my Martins. It's the way to go. Martin USED to do that to all of their guitars up to mid eighties or so. Now they only do it to their "Authentic" models.
