    Fodera 28100 String Review

    Posted by Theodore Terry on 22nd Sep 2020

    I’ve been playing bass for a very long time and have used many different brands and gauges of strings. When I started playing G&L basses, I wanted a durable string that maintained a great feel and incredible tone, regardless of the music genre I play. The Fodera 28100 Nickle delivers. The strings are light and flexible, with a great tone, and I don’t have to worry about premature fret wear. Whether practicing or gigging, the last thing I want is a string or set of strings that loses its tone integrity and overall feel. Thank you, Fodera, for a great product!

    Been using them since I bought a Fodera. I'm a fan of the Ultra Light strings.

    Best strings I know

    Posted by Sebastien Laurendeau on 24th Apr 2020

    Flexible, durable and great sounding strings. They feel very smooth but if you dig in a bit they still growl. Perfectly balanced. Fodera’s strings are my favorite strings by a long shot.. I prefer Nickel by I just put a set of SS on my 6 string and I love them too.

    Simply The Best!

    These strings are an absolute Godsend! The Ultra Light gauge feels absolutely great on my hands & the tone is impeccable. I use them on both my jazz & my P/J basses. These strings serve the tone of my basses extremely well. I don’t think I’ll find another set of strings with the combination of tone & comfort like Fodera.

    5 string nickel set

    Posted by Glenn Riley on 29th Oct 2019

    Very responsive strings, with even tone across the first to fifth string. The nickel wrap provides a smooth feel under the fingers. The strings make each note precise and focused.

    Great sound in a nickel string set

    Posted by Rich Thompson on 12th Mar 2018

    I play two Fodera's - one with nickel and one with stainless steel. Nickel provides a soft warm sound that fits the groove and feel of certain sounds. And you can't miss with the quality of these strings. Thank you Fodera!

    Best strings for the best basses

    Posted by Matt Zavakos on 13th Feb 2018

    Since buying my first Fodera (Monarch) 15 years ago I have used Fodera strings (Nickel, 40-125). These strings are made with the same attention to detail as the instruments. They sound amazing, are fantastically responsive and last a long time.
    On top of all of that the team at Fodera is a pleasure to work with.
    I will continue to use Fodera strings as long as they make them.

    Nicely-made strings

    Posted by Unknown on 22nd Jan 2018

    These strings went on nicely and they sound great. They have a medium feel and sound very even across the strings. The wraps are tight, similar to a DR string, but I like the sound of these better.
