Product Reviews for C.F. Martin Classical Guitar Silver Plated Wound Ball End High Tension, .028 - .043, M-160

C.F. Martin Classical Guitar Silver Plated Wound Ball End High Tension, .028 - .043, M-1605BobNovember 4, 2011I love the Martin Nylon Strings, ...only problem with the "ball end" is that the 1st string almost always pulls through the ball end after it's been tuned to pitch. It may take a day or two but it will happen. I have contacted Martin at least three times regarding this, and was assured it would be "looked into". They even sent me a couple of packs free to compensate me. Only problem was, the strings they sent me also had the same issue! I am waiting for a reply from Martin as I write this review. If the problem is not fixed ASAP I will choose another brand.

"Martin Strings are high quality strings for daily use. That's what distinguishes them from other brands. Core and wrap wires must meet strict requirements in order to make the grade. Martin Strings are wound to precise specifications. Available in 80/20 Bronze, Silk & Steel, and Nylon.

Today's acoustic guitarists demand strings with great response and superb brilliance. Martin Phosphor Bronze strings are made from 92/8 composition to give that superior brilliance, clarity, and longevity of sound required by serious guitarists. The Phosphor Bronze winding alloy is ideally suited for making strings that have deep, rich basses and clear, bright trebles.

Our Cryogenic Strings are produced to the same high quality standards as Martin Strings. An additional step in the manufacturing process exposes the strings to extremely low temperatures (-300 F), a process used in "high tech" industrial applications where consistent hardness of metal materials is required."
