I finally decided to go with the brass. The biggest benefit: They won't break as easily. As far as tonality is concerned, I think it might vary from guitar to guitar. On my acoustic, the pins definitely increased the bass and somewhat alleviated a dead fret problem (F on the 5th string - standard tuning.) On the other hand, the pins robbed some of the highs and quieted the guitar down just a bit. On the whole, I am satisfied with these subtle changes in tone. I'm going to switch from Ivory to brass depending upon the situation. (I mostly use the guitar for recording.)

I can hear a change in sound with these pins, unfortunately, they don't stay as seated as my tusq or bone pins. In my seagull, they seem much smaller than the bridge pin hole - I *loathe* restringing with these pins in. In the end, these lasted about 2 weeks and are back in the drawer. Save yourself the effort and look around online for some nice bone pins.

    Comments about D'Andrea Tone Pins Brass Bridge Pin Set:

    Not only do these pins improve the look of your guitar and they definitely will the bright sound that they produce is awesome. I have put the abalone on my Ibanez that has abalone all over it and have put the mother of pearl on all the rest. If u want to improve the sound while improving the look as well as increasing the value of your guitars you need these pins!

        I bought these yo replace some cheap plastic ones on a cheap guitar. They both improved the look and sound of it. Considering putting them on all my acoustics.

                  These are good bridge pins.
                  They won't fit in every guitar -- they didn't work in my Ibanez but they fit in my Martin fine (with medium gauge strings. Maybe they'd pop out with extra-lights? Idk.)
                  In terms of tone, I like what they've done. Previously I had plastic pins in the guitar, so any material might have been an improvement, but I notice a more even note decay and harmonics/overtones ring out more.

                  There's nothing I miss about the stock plastic pins. If you have a Martin, these are worth looking at.

                  Beautiful Addition to Any Acoustic Guitar

                  Comments about D'Andrea Tone Pins Brass Bridge Pin Set:

                  These pins are excellent and certainly add a massive amount of aesthetic appeal to any acoustic guitar. I love how they work, and they work well. I will say one thing however, dependant on the size of the pin holes in your bridge these pins may not fit. They do progressively get smaller from the E down to the e but the smallest pin is still just a little too large for the last hole in my bridge. I have a Takemine.

                  Comments about D'Andrea Tone Pins Brass Bridge Pin Set:

                  This is my first purchase at Guitar Center that was in any way disappointing. but these things are useless. they look great but won't stay in the bridge. they ride up as you try to tune and refuse to stay in place. I initially got them for my old flattop (1970's dreadnought-I'm not new at this). When that failed miserably, I decided to try them on an Epiphone that I bought my wife a few years back, thinking that I must have done something wrong or the old bridge was just too worn for them to seat properly. Same exact problem. I will be giving them to a friend who builds ratrods. perhaps he can use them in one of his builds as radio knobs or something. I refuse to send good money after bad in shipping them back. Avoiding D'Andrea products is something I will feature from here on in.

                  I noticed a tone and sustain improvement using these. But then again the originals I had were plastic so they could only improve the sound. I like them so much i bought a set for my brother along with some Elixir strings.
