Tine Stock:  .123”x .045”  3.12mm x 1.14mm

To order tines you will need to know or decide a few things.  

1. Distance of non vibrating portion of the tine, this adds on to the vibrating length to create an overall length.  A little long is best as then you can push the tine from either end when tuning.  

2.  How many tines

3.  Key: (A B C ect.)

4.  Scale:   Diatonic, Pentatonic, minor ect.  

If you are confused by this, please call or email.
