I've read that some people can't tell any difference with the brass pins, and some can. Since it's not a lot of money I decided to try a set of these on a Wasburn parlor model(305S) that had the el cheapo plastic pins. I had already installed a bone saddle and a set of D'Addario custom lights and the tone was better. Not perfect, but better. The difference with these pins was not only noticable, it was pretty amazing. The little parlor had a clarity and presence that I'd never heard before. The folks that don't notice any appreciable difference must already have a great sounding instrument. If you have a less expensive guitar with plastic pins, or just want to get the best tone you can, try these. Pretty amazing for not much investment.

I put these on my "campfire acoustic" Black Yamaha F335 and they look stunning. The tone seems slightly brighter, however, I go through strings pretty fast so a lot of the difference I am hearing is admittedly likely a result of going from dead strings to new strings. Since they are replacing plastic pins I am going to skip scientific analysis and give you a subjective "sounds good".

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).

I have a 10 year old Yamaha Acoustic Electric guitar and when changing strings I broke one of the plastic pins. It was bound to happen. So I did some research on the different types of bridge pins and it was either these or bone pins. I went for these of course.

Pros
-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).

Cons-
-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.

I put these on an Ibanez electric acoustic with a flamed top finish. They look a lot better than the cheap, white plastic bridge pins that the guitar came with but I can't really say they added much to the sound of the guitar. I'd give them a little credit for MAYBE adding some sustain but overall they are more of a cosmetic upgrade, which I am happy with. They do add quite a bit of class and distinction to the looks of the guitar.

I've installed 2 sets of these on 2 different Yamaha's - an APX500II and an APX500 and to me the change is significant. When I did the first one, I changed strings from bronze to nickel was very impressed, I'm still using this combo. On the 2nd guitar I left the original bronze strings on and only changed the pins and removed the bridge saddle shim, the change in tone was impressive, it went from thin and trebly to a nice thick well blended tone with beautiful sustain. I can't think of a bigger change in tone for 13$.
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.
