This was designed to show the diffrence in tone by changing bridge pin materials but the same rules should apply to saddle materials. Your biggest diffrence will come from the saddle. The bridge pins offer only a very slight change. The exception would be brass...Brass pins make a noticable diffrence in tone. A little too bright for my personal taste but others seem to like them. I usually favor either bone or ebony pins and a bone saddle. The ebony adds a bit of warmth and low end. Hope some of that was helpfull...Peace! -Pix
