Product Reviews for Fodera Electric Bass Heavy 5 String, .050 - .135, Taper B, 50135T

Fodera Electric Bass Heavy 5 String, .050 - .135, Taper B, 50135T2markJune 29, 2011I did not like these strings at all. I was hoping for a "compression string" similar to a KEN Smith compressors but with 5 srting. the description says they are smooth to the touch, they are anything but. Lots of string noise and strong gripping of the fingertips, they are stainless so they might be your bag but I like nickle for a smother touch. I put D'Addario Electric Bass XL Environmental Regular Long 5 String, .050 - .135, EXL160-5 after about 10 minutes of playing the Fodera string And I am still using those.
