I bought these black/pearl tusk pins to brighten up my Epiphone DR-500MCE (Solid Mahogany cut away acoustic/electric) guitar. And the pins fit perfectly and look very good! My acoustic had wonderful tone but was a bit dark and muddy, and closed in tone, and I wanted it to be just a bit brighter and clearer, and more open sounding. These tusk pins INSTANTLY corrected this condition.I must emphasize that the change in tone was INSTANT.They are great pins if you need to brighten up an otherwise moody sounding guitar..Bottom line is..THEY WORK!

Well, there's a lot of positive reviews about the the Tusq bridge pins making brightness, however, I haven't noticed much of a change at all, compared to the plastic pins that were on my stock
Ibanez-EWc30QHERLG1201 (exotic-wood acoustic).
I will say that with new strings, my guitar sounds better though, but I'd doubt that the pins really contributed at all.
Overpriced, hence, the three stars.

Appears to noticeably improve sound

      Comments about Graph Tech Tusq Ivory Acoustic Guitar Bridge Pins:

      I replaced the original bridge pins on my ~1999 Tacoma DR20E. The originals were clearly plastic (based on the "drop test"). Length and diameter of the head are different: the TUSQ pins are a little shorter, and the heads are a little bigger. So, my pin puller won't work w/ the new ones - not a big deal.

      I replaced the pins first, then the saddle and nut. However, I did a sound check before starting, and again right after replacing the pins, and there was a very noticeable improvement. The attack was sharper, and the sustain was longer. Tonally, slightly fuller sound.

        Comments about Tusq Ivory Acoustic Guitar Bridge Pins:

        I replaced the stock bridge pins on my Martin acoustic with these Tusq pins. I was skeptical, but they truly do improve the fullness of the sound. If you are using plastic pins now, you'll love the Tusq pins.

              Comments about Graph Tech Tusq Ivory Acoustic Guitar Bridge Pins:

              I wanted to experiment with the tone of my guitar Washburn wd10sce. read some reviews about using tusq pins instead of the factory plastic pins that came with the guitar to improve tone. I think that they changed the way my guitar looks more than the way it sounds. They gave the guitar some more bling and a little more ring. Some other reviews claimed fitment issues, but I didn't have any with my guitar.

                    Dropped the in my acoustic that had a Tusq nut/saddle already but with plastic pins. Brightened up the tone and increased sustain and overall projection. These should be standard on all acoustic guitars. No need to kill an animal for their bones!

                        Just installed a set of Tusq bridge pins on my Guild D55. Was going to restring it at same time but thought I'd try a couple of pins to see if I could tell any difference. Ended up installing the pins on the old strings which came back to life. Pretty amazing improvement. Can't wait to hear the difference when I restring it in a couple of weeks.

                            Everything you've heard about Tusq bridge pins you can actually hear when you play. Breadth, depth and more harmonically rich. Strings 1-3 in particular. NOTE: there is some truth that saddles effect sound more than pins. That may be true, but I heard the difference as soon as the pins were installed—which came after adding a Tusq saddle. It's an amazing way to make every guitar better for very little--with one more aesthetic benefit that never seems to get mentioned: your guitar remains free of bone, which, if you recall, is an animal part.
