        I own two acoustic guitars that I have experience with, using the D'Andrea tone pins. My guitars are: 1968 Martin D12-35 Brazilian w/ D-28 neck retro-fitted by Martin in Nazareth, PA
        1994 Taylor 810CE Indian Rosewood w/original type neck

        Prior to re-pinning these guitars, I have used the orginal plastic pins from the factory. Also, I've used a variety of strings on both: silk & steel, Phosphor & Bronze, and Bronze. On the Martin, I have a Shadow SH470 3-pickup assembly, and on the Taylor, the Fishman Prefix Onboard blender system.

        I was looking primarily for increased clarity, esp. in the treble range, w/o sacrificing the bottom end. If you're looking for a sound that doesn't re-color your guitar's woodiness, you may want to stay with ebony, bone, or even Micarta versions. But I'm not a purist, so if you want to scream at me, knock yourself out. Originally, D'Andrea only offered the cylindrical-head design, so I had to get what I could get. More recently, they're offering the traditional-pin style tone pins, which I much prefer. With the cylindrical, I find the touch is maximum sustain, although somewhat more brassy. With the traditional, the combination is shifted more toward the ebony-woody with one side brassy. Note that the cylindrical style has you pulling your string through a hole in the pin head so that when you change strings, the string and pin stay threaded, while in the traditional, you have a separated string and pin combination.

        I love the brass pins and wouldn't go back for anything. Sustain is heavenly, and the clarity unparalleled, in my opinion. You should expect a Roger McGuinn effect that gets pulled into your amp nicely, and a louder and clearer effect w/o amplification. For me, I think brass strings match better with the brass pins than the phosphor-bronze strings, but others may feel the reverse rings truer for them. If you don't try the brass pins, you'll never know if you like them, and they're so inexpensive, you haven't lost much of anything for the try-out. I heartily recommend them.

        Im not gonna write a negative review about a product because it doesn't fit my guitar like a lot of people seem to do. I don't think thats a fair review because there is nothing inherently wrong with a product just because it doesn't fit. But when I received these, the quality control was so bad I was shocked. The mother of pearl inlay dots were set in without a thought as to quality at all. The pins did add a bit of brightness to the guitar which was nice but I can't give this product a good review because of how terrible the quality of the construction is. I switched them out for Jellyfish HotRod pins which worked much better. I would never recommend these. Use bone or if you want metal pins to brighten the tone then use a different brand. These are garbage.

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

              These brass pins are the bomb! I own several acoustics and they all have these installed.
              Right away, you are going to hear what your guitar was meant to sound like. I mean a huge improvement in tone and sustain.
              They look really nice and I get so many complements about them. The abalone ones do look the best out of all they have to offer.
              Note: It says they fit most guitars, true, I could not install them on my Jasmine as the bridge holes were a tad too small. They fit every other acoustic I have perfect.
              Bottom Line: These pins are one of the best upgrades you can do for your guitar for the price. I highly recommend these to everyone I play with. BUY THEM

                I was looking forward to trying the brass pins but they are too small for my acoustic guitar. Very disappointed but I guess it is not possible to make a "one size fits all".

                    There is a marked difference in the sustain with these pins. They are heavier and I hear more "ring" to the notes.

                                Put these on my cheap guitar with potential. A Kona acoustic-electric thin-body. I was very impressed with the tonal changes. Everything seemed more vibrant. I got more volume and more sustain as well. I bought the abalone ones and they are very nice to look at. I gave this a 4/5 because during the install I had several issues with the pins fitment. I'd push them all in very hard and then go to tune and a pin would go flying across the room. I got them all to stay in eventually with no modifications. Apart from that, this is a wonderful product. Well worth the money.
