      Comments about Martin M160 Ball End Nylon Classical Guitar Strings:

      I have always tied my strings but thought I would give the ball ends a shot.
      Put them on and brought them in tune again and again. Cranked on these strings for two days and finally the little ball on the "G" and "B" string poped right off. I went in to the store and was told that this is somewhat normal.
      Asked the teck guy and he said they are not the strings he would use.
      went back to tying my strings

          These strings are one of the best. I'm not classic guitar player but use classic guitar for recording/flamenco stroke/solo lead part, etc. I tried 5-6sets of different company's strings but this martin's strings are the best tone for both solo/lead and stroke.

            From the moment I tried these strings I loved the tone, the feel, and how quickly one can change these out. However; I would completely remove the plastic ball ends from the tremble strings and tie them the old way. The black plastic ball ends just don`t hold up. I open the case...and their gone. So I just tie them.

            Comments about Martin M160 Ball End Nylon Classical Guitar Strings:

            I decided to try these out on my classical and all was well until I did the final tune up. The high E would lose tension very quickly, not staying at pitch for more than a few seconds. I decided to let it sit for a bit so the strings could finish stretching and that's when the high E popped. I went to the store and asked about the strings and was told that event was an anomaly. So I foolishly bought another Martin set (not wanting to mix strings). Strung up the high E again this time bringing it to D and letting it sit overnight. The next morning I tried to bring it to pitch and all was well for about 5 minutes. As I was doing some light finger picking, the high E popped again. I went back to Sam Ash and got a set of D'Addario Pro Arte and strung up. Those stayed in tune and a month on have not had a string pop.
