For those who build with them, where do you get your bridge pins? Chinese eBay ones? Lmi?

I've been getting them from Hana Lima 'Ia. They have ebony, rosewood and plastic

LMI has a good selection of high quality bridge pins. Stew-Mac doesn't carry rosewood pins for some reason. I've had no luck with Chinese suppliers on ebay, which don't seem to know the difference between MOP and abalone dots.

If you are up for at least 1/2 gross then Gurian Instruments is the place to go. I'd venture a guess that places like Stew Mac and LMI get theirs from Micheal.

I've got several sets of very nice rosewood pins from the Bezdez store on eBay Canada (http://stores.ebay.ca/bezdez/). Shipping was kinda pricey, but all in all I didn't spend any more than if I had bought them locally for three times the price per set.

Thanks for this! Exactly what I was looking for. I don't see anywhere on their site what the taper of their pins are though, do you remember offhand?

They are 3 degree. You can ask for slotted or un-slotted as well.
