    It would be so nice if bridge pins did contribute to the overall sound, that way we could adjust the various qualities of each different pin material to the best sound or the sound we like the best. Alas, it is just snake oil. Anyone who would spend $100 for brass pins has too much money.

    From a physics standpoint, heavier pins (i.e., brass) are going to add mass to the top and therefore reduce it's ability to vibrate. Even at that, I doubt you could tell a difference.
