5 x 66 mm Zither Pins, Germany
These precision machined threaded tuning pins are extra long and have a hole 10mm (blued pins) or 25 mm (nickel plated) from the top. They are used on the 4' register of harpsichords so that the top of the pins stick out far above the 8' strings. This allows tuning of the 4' strings without the tuning key having to reach between the 8' strings. They have a diameter of .198" (5 mm) and are 2.5" (66 mm) long. Use tuning keys/hammers #80110, 80112, 80130, 80132.
5.3 x 45 mm Oversized Zither Pins
These pins are similar to the Japanese 5 x 45 mm zither pins, except for the diameter, which is 0.3 mm (.012") larger. Use the pins to replace loose 5 mm zither pins. You can also use the 5.6 mm pins for fortepiano to replace loose 5mm tuning pins. Use the same tuning keys/hammers as for the 5 mm zither pins.
