    Smooth as Butter

    Posted by B. Luisi on 23rd Jun 2016

    Been playing a P-bass for about 50 years. Used all sorts and types of strings in that time, but these Foderas are a cut above the rest.
    Clarity, tonality, and richness is what I hear when I play these strings. Bravo Fodera... don't change a thing.

    Balanced in every way

    Posted by Albert on 17th Jun 2016

    I've been using the heavy nickels for a couple of years now. I change them every three months, which adds up to about 250 hours of use. I'm too lazy to keep them clean, so I'm very happy with this time. And no for the really important issues: sound and feel. I'm very happy with the sound. Breaking in takes about two hours. After that they feel smooth and the sound is just as I like it: good roundwound aggressiveness without 'hyped' highs, focused powerful mids and deep round lows. Just perfect for my kind of music, which is seventies British rock. The balance between the strings is perfect, both tension and volume.

    My Strings

    Posted by Tom Richardson, Grand Avenue on 23rd May 2016

    I have tried several different string sets wondering if I've been missing something (is the grass really greener?) (nope). I like the consistency and feel. Like the sound. My band can tell when I have other strings on. They like the Foderas. Just reordered a year's supply Band happy. Me too : )

    Love 'em

    I've had several Foderas, and have always elected to with the nickel rounds. Great sound!

    Really cool strings

    Posted by Luis O'Mendez on 13th Jan 2016

    The best strings I've played. Great tone, easy to play, full dynamics, quick response!

    That's what I was looking for.

    Great Strings for Great Sound

    Put these strings on my Schecter Oman Extreme 4-they blew away the Eddie Ball series that came on the bass. Love these strings.

    New strings for a deep rich sound

    Posted by Rich Thompson on 28th Jun 2014

    Placed a new set of Fodera nickel strings on my Fender Jazz Bass. First replacement and I was hopeful for a great sound. I wasn't disappointed as they produce a deep bass sound and very precise high tones. The guitar technician I use was excited to put them on the instrument and certain they would produce the sound I am looking for. Thank you Fodera!

    Awesome strings

    Posted by Darren Lipper on 25th Jun 2014

    Awesome Strings... strong fundamentals with interesting and musical overtones.
    Received the strings promptly/hassle free.

    Also, had my last pair on my Monarch Standard for around 6 months!
