I've been using Thomastiks for quite some time. Fodera strings are easily as good and last longer at half the price. Well done!

Have been playing the stainless steel strings for a while and thought I'd mix it up and try the nickels. Same amazing quality, settle quickly, stay in tune well, no "new string" overly bright sound. Fodera definitely makes my favorite strings. Now I need to save my pennies so I can get a bass too!
Great sound and great build quality

Finally some strings that fit the longer 35"-36" scale that my customers want. I've also tried the Anthony Jackson series which have even greater definition on the 'B' string. Try these and you'll find that other brands just don't stack up.

I never really thought strings made all that much of a difference until I tried fodera strings. Now I treat myself to them anytime I have some spare cash. Really high quality, and they feel as great as they sound.
