The Pinblock

Carefully drilled with more than 200 holes, the pinblock's job is to tightly grip the tuning pins. Just like a nail suspending a picture on a wall loses its hold over time, the same is true with tuning pins. To ensure the tuning pins don't budge, pinblocks are made of 5 to 7 layers of kilned hard rock maple, and fastened onto the resting plank at a 7-degree angle.
