    Looking at harp kits, I’m getting rather confused at the various terms used to describe tuning pins, and I’d really love to know what is what.

    Zither pins are threaded and are only on one side of the neck.

    Ah…so the Dusty has something of a hybrid, then!

    Thru pins will definitely be what I’m looking for, then.

    I also wanted to clarify that tapered pins come in a variety of sizes.
