  1. Restring for spring

    Posted by Unknown on 31st Mar 2014

    As of now, they've been on the bass for 24 hours and they're still in tune. They sound like new strings. I'll have a better idea how they sound after tonight's rehearsal. I still can't play like Vic.

  2. Great!!!

    Posted by Alfredo Ovalle on 24th Mar 2014

    ¡These strings are tremendously amazing and feel so well under your fingertips! If you are looking for sustain, clear beautiful harmonics, slapping, finger tapping or fingerstyle, these are without a doubt a set of string to take in consideration. Great price, fast shipping, great products means a satusfied customer!
    Thanks Fodera

  3. The best!

    Posted by Steve York on 7th Feb 2014

    I've been playing Fodera basses since 2007 and these strings bring out the best in these instruments.! I often mix gauges but generally use nickel .045 - .130. They have punch, sustain and are consistent. I don't like to use anything else!

  4. Real great sound and Punch

    Posted by Unknown on 20th Jan 2014

    these strings give me the extra punch I needed, sound great and feel real slick! im anxious to see how they darken, Im not a big fan of really bright strings! so I like them a few weeks old
