    Fodera Nickel Bass Strings (6 String Set)

    Posted by Raphaël on 22nd Dec 2020

    Very Good strings! Just enough bright and just enough lows! They feel good! The Light/Medium set could be a bit stiff for some but it's not that bad.

    Great Strings!

    Tension and Tone

    Posted by peteg1013 on 4th Aug 2020

    I had a conversation with a friend about tone as a function of string tension, and that lighter gauge strings have less tension and therefore deeper tone. Sounds counterintuitive, but it's true. Anyhow, as a result I have been using Fodera's light gauge, nickel wound strings for a couple of years now and they are phenomenal. I wouldn't use anything else, these strings were the missing component for my sound. Highly recommended.

    This is the first set that I've tried. Very impressed. I will definitely be using Fodera Strings for all my round wound string needs. Thank you so much for making these.

    Thomastik Killer

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

    Awesome strings!!!

    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.
