i own a lo-end classical guitar that i use for different songs & projects. I purchased these primarily for the ball ends as I don't like the idea of tying the ends. These strings made my guitar sound 100% better than the ones that came with the guitar. I plan on buying more of these & I also want to try the regular tension. Excellent Strings.

These are the worst sounding strings I've put on any of my guitars, ever! They only lasted a week and a half before the windings were coming off the D and A strings! Perfect example of "you get what you pay for" Ugh!

        Comments about Martin M160 Silverplated Ball-End High Tension Nylon Classic Guitar Strings:

        Not your traditional nylon strings. Very full, bold sound. After less than a week of casual playing, one string snapped in the middle of the night. Not sure if this will be a regular thing with these strings or if it was a freak accident.

          Comments about Martin M160 Silverplated Ball-End High Tension Nylon Classic Guitar Strings:

          I play a lot of steel string guitar and got a hybred nylon so that I could get a softer attack and more tone these strings do just that. I maintain the feel of a steel string and find a increase in volume a real plus. not recomended for a youth classical guitar beginner might be too tight.

              When you have guitars in every room in the house the classical strings need to string fast , the ball ends are great because there's not slippage like the traditional way great strings as allways

              Martin Hi Tansion M160 nylon guitar strings

              By Sam Yakley

              from NE Oklahoma

              Comments about Martin M160 Silverplated Ball-End High Tension Nylon Classic Guitar Strings:

              These strings are like stringing your guitar with rubber bands. After a few weeks they are still stretching. Now the high E has broken while resting in the case. Apparently Martin is not into nylon strings very well. I'll not be buying any more of these.
