Most (if not all) of the effect that bridge pins have on tone is due to their mass. Bone pins tend to be heavier than plastic or wood ones, so you can get an idea of the effect on the tone of your guitar by just adding some weight to the bridge. Poster adhesive is good for that. The difference from plastic pins is likely to be in the range of five grams or so, so you could try that to start. It may not seem like much, but it can have a real effect, particularly in the high end tone and sustain.
