Product Reviews for Fodera Electric Bass Victor Wooten Signature Five String Nickel, .040 - .120, VW5N

Fodera Electric Bass Victor Wooten Signature Five String Nickel, .040 - .120, VW5N4Steve YorkJune 25, 2011I have been using Fodera nickel 45130 ´s on my two Fodera five strings for a few years and love them. I recently upgraded the bridges on both basses which increased the string tension. I decided to try lighter strings. The VW strings are perfect on the B, E, and A srings but I find the D and G to be too light. I am getting more sustain and clarity from the bottom three strings but not enough punch from the top two. I am using the D and G strings from the 4530 set. I will have to contact Fodera and ask if they can sell me custom gauge sets. I wish I could get them through juststrings as the service is excellent!
