Recently replaced an old plastic saddle in a guitar with a Tusq synthetic ivory one. Noteable improvement. The package also recommended replacing the plastic bridge pins too. I got the new Tusq bridge pins and did a little experiment to see if they really do make a difference. Took an acoustic that has a pickup under the saddle and hooked up an electronic tuner. Measured the sustain time of the A string until there was no output detected. Recorded several readings with an overall average of 19.0 seconds. Replaced all the pins then did the same thing. The average sustain time increased to 24.4 seconds for an improvement of over 28%. They really do make a difference. Not a bad investment for the price.

I bought 2 sets of these for 2 Acoustics I own. I had a hard time installing them and ended up trashing a new set of guitar strings because the Low E and A would keep sliding up out of their respective holes. Reinserting them caused the windings at the lower end of the string to break and make the string dead. I don't understand that behavior as they seem to be seated correctly. They feel lighter than I thought they would. The bridge pins appear to improve sound, but to my ears its seems marginal for the price. I guess I thought these were real bone. They are some kind of composit material.

    I immediately replace the factory pins on all my guitars with these every time. Much better sound quality for both highs and lows, plus more volume.

        My 1986 Martin HD35 still has the original plastic pins in it and they are warping and starting to show their age, so I decided to give these a try. They look good and I know Tusq will have a superior to the old plastic pins I have in their now. Good purchase!

                Comments about Graph Tech Tusq Ivory Acoustic Guitar Bridge Pins:

                These seem to work fine; I've put them on a couple of guitars. They replaced a plastic set and an ebony set, both of which had gotten a little ragged with use. I can't vouch for any tonal changes, but that wasn't the intent. I'd like to see chamfers on the bottoms of the pins, but it only takes a few minutes to file them. Had to go elsewhere to find black pins with no dots as MF doesn't seem to stock them.

                    It made a very noticeable difference. I replaced the plastic pins on a China made axe. I replaced the saddle with TUSQ also. I chose to sand fit the pins to bridge vs. ream fit bridge to pins. The time to do that was well worth it. The combination of the saddle and pins produced more volume , more bright bell like sustain. Will most likely replace the nut with TUSQ also.

                          Comments about Graph Tech Tusq Ivory Acoustic Guitar Bridge Pins:

                          Replaced 6 x Buffalo Horn pins with 6 x TUSQ pins on my Yamaha FS720S (w/ TUSQ nut and saddle), but didn't love the results. I felt the Buffalo Horn had more character and might have matched up better with my guitar but after playing around with it I found that an excellent combination of 3 x Buffalo Horn and 3 x TUSQ really gave the guitar more uniqueness. I think the TUSQ provides some extra tone and warmness, definitely volume, and the Buffalo Horn just seems to have a little bit more bass, mids and character overall. Worth nothing that I put the Buffalo Horn on the low E, A and D strings and put the TUSQ on G, B and high E. I have 3 of each pins leftover of course, so I'm going to use the same combination on my new guitar although this guitar will have a bone nut and saddle as well as different materials in general, so I'm clueless if the same results will occur. I did read however that one particular dude loves his solid sitka top guitar's to have Buffalo Horn pins so maybe there is some merit to that. I hope this helps out some people who feel that bridge pins do nothing for the sound. It probably effects different guitars in different ways but I can tell you for sure that I've been through plastic, Buffalo Horn and TUSQ and there's definitely differences between all of them.
