    Winter and low humidity and end-pins start coming out of the woodwork :).

    Raise the humidity or wrap painters tape around the pin. Or any of the other great suggestions above.

    Re: Best way to secure end pin?

    Re: Best way to secure end pin?

    Don't tap a tapered end pin in place with a hammer, EVER!!! You could split the end block. A drop of fingernail polish will do. The taper is fit to the hole and your new pin may have to be fitted to...

    Re: Intonation issue

    The trouble nowadays is that we have the technology to measure things in milliseconds. Making a string vibrate as a 'harmonic' or a fretted note is actually a 'moving target' when it comes to the...
