Martin M120 High Tension Silver Plated Nylon Guitar Strings

Martin’s M120 Silver Plated Nylon strings are one of the most affordable nylon string sets available, but based on user reception they do seem to have a tendency to be somewhat fragile.

The D string in particular seems to be the most issue-prone string in the set, with many reviewers stating that the string’s plating unwound within a few days of the set being put on. It is always possible that the breakage users experienced is a result of operator error as opposed to a flaw with the strings, but it’s something to be aware of nonetheless.

Musicians who didn’t experience string breakage found that the strings had a respectable tone for the price tier. The silver-plated basses give the strings an impressive amount of clarity for the price, making them an excellent fit for those of you with cedar topped instruments.
