Topic: Martin Lifespan SP Strings
Just for a change, I decided to try these Martin strings out, instead of the Elixir Nanowebs I normally use. Something happened that I've never experienced. When I was bringing them up to tune, the ball-ends broke off both the high E and B strings! It was right in the loop which wraps around the ball end. I had some extra Elixirs, so I used those without issue, along with the 4 wound Martin strings.
Anyone else ever have this happen? I certainly won't be buying another set.
