    Simply The Best!

    Posted by Phil Miller on 31st Oct 2019

    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.

    More sparkle

    Posted by Unknown on 15th Mar 2016

    These Fodera nickle strings have a slight brighter top end compared to the stainless. I was concerned they would not be bright enough, but was pleasantly surprised. Seems to bring more growl, and clarity through the mix. Exactly what I was looking for.

    Perfect balance

    Posted by James on 8th Mar 2016

    In a pinch I tried some other brand strings for my MG5 which did not work out so well. They were not stout enough and pretty much banged the frets unless I played very light. The medium nickelFodera strings not only sounded much more clear but are a great balance being more rigid so I cold play with far more dynamics.
