These pins are a little thin (small) so they may slide out of the hole easier than the ones they are replacing. If you need to this should be remedied handily by applying a small amount of tape to the pins. This may not be necessary, however, even if they are slightly loose because the pins when used correctly are not a wedge to keep the string in the hole. The string should go all the way through the hole, into the body of the guitar. Insert the string so that you are sure the ball is inside the body at least a few inches, if possible it should be listing toward the neck. Then insert the pin with the slot facing the neck and push it in firmly. Unless you have really thick strings these slots should be ample for this. Then gently pull the string tight making sure that the ball does not grab the end of the pin. Instead it should be up against the body of the guitar and stopped from escaping back up the hole by the pin. The pin itself should not really be holding it in place all on its own. Usually the pins popping out are because the ball is actually hooked onto the end of the pin and is pulling it up out of the hole. If you avoid this you should also avoid the frustrating mishap of having the pin come flying out and poking you in the eye while you're trying to get your guitar in tune (typically ruining a brand new string in the process).Read more ›
-The sustain is extended.
-The sounds is louder.
-They look good
-They stay in place easily.
-They are sturdy and solid (I don't see them breaking any time soon).
-the bridge pin removal tool won't fit around the heads.
Overall, I would totally recommend these pins to anyone trying to give new life to their guitar. These pins and a new set of strings will make you feel like you just got a new guitar. I've only had them for a week but I love them. I will update this review if any problems arise but so far so good.
It might make a bigger difference on the thinner body acoustic guitars, because they can't provide the same range of tones as the bigger (dreadnought)acoustics (at least not without amplification) - maybe thats why some people report a major difference in tone and others say they hear little to nothing.
2 other things to note.
1. you'll never have to replace a pin again as these are mighty strong compared to the plastic pins on most guitars these days.
2. they look really great.
That's my take, I've had them on my guitar #1 for over a year and they were a great investment.Guitar #2 they've been on for a week and they did make a great improvement. I recommend them especially for the thin body acoustics currently in vogue. The added sustain gives you a scooch more time to get from note to note which makes playing easier if you know how to utilize the sustain.
If you can change guitar strings, you can change pins.
edit - 3/29/16 - just installed another set on a dreadnaught and the tone once again improved. works on big guitars and little guitars too.

Nice looking but small. I had to wrap a little tape around them to fit properly on my Guild 12 stringPublished 14 hours ago by Amazon Customer
These pins are exactly the same in the picture. These are perfect replacement for my old guitar pins. These are so affordable and they have a good quality.Published 6 days ago by Thomas
These are very awful. They don't fit mainly because they're too short and not thick enough. They don't fit either of my guitars. They need to be universal. Read morePublished 29 days ago by Amazon Customer
Very good end pins. There is no discernible difference in the sounds but easy to take out.Published 1 month ago by A. Trinidad
Not sure they do anything for or against the tone of the guitar. They do look nice and compliment the look of the guitar. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Stephen Robinson
