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.

Bought two sets of these strings, the windings on the A and D strings started coming loose in about two weeks and I found them very hard to keep in tune. Have put on the second set and they haven't started unraveling yet but find them very difficult to keep in tune. They are now broken in , I tune them when I get to a gig and then after playing a little while they are out of tune again. Never experienced this before but happened with both sets. Won't buy again and don't recommend them

Break too easily

By Roger

from Kansas

See all my reviews

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

I purchased 3 sets of these. Within the first hour of receiving them, I broke the high E string in 2 of the sets. I was careful to tighten them slowly and still had them break. The second one broke while the guitar was not even being played. I got it up to pitch, played for a while, set it down, and 5 minutes later I heard it snap. There has to be some brand that does not have this problem. I won't buy anymore of these. They are crap.

Worst Srtings EVER!

By Mat-wQdqN

from Whitby

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

Best Nylon Strings I've tried!

By EmeeBee1982-bKd_D

from Salt lake City, Utah

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

I have a very low end classical guitar, horrible action ( in my opinion ) awkward size, just not amazing, by any means. When I put these strings on it though.. IT WAS GLORIOUS. I will never buy a different brand of nylon strings again. I am set.

Best acoustics I've ever played

By David Schmitt

from Florida

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

Definitely buying more, might give them away as Christmas presents this year. No kidding, that good. So, uh, if you get like 10 sets of strings in your stocking, you know who posted this review, guys ;-)
Silver/nylon doesn't start looking "cruddy" as fast as phosphor-bronze/nylon and is easy on the fingers and smooth as silk,
After a "normal" break in (put them on one day, brought just up to tune, left it alone until ready to play with it a few days later) they stretched very little after that, no more than "fresh" steel acoustic strings.
Amazing price for such a great set of strings.

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.

            I use these for my knock around Acoustic and the have great tone only time will tell if they hold up as I just put these on the other day. I have never used martin strings before but by the look of them I think they will hold up fine.

                      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.

                        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.
