Sounds and Plays Great

Couldn't be happier. The tone and play-ability of this light, 5 string set is fantastic. It is awesome to find a set designed for E-C players. Great bottom and beautiful top end. These strings really helps deliver the harmonic contents of chords and soloing.
Tone Playability Somewhat pricy

Oh friends,

I am glad you asked me to come here and tell you how happy I am to have been ordering from you. I Love your service. I love that you have the strings available at any time and have found the string "Loves of my life". My whole playing has changed dramatically now that I have the proper strings and such a nice big choice to experiment with.

I definitely love the fact that I don't have to pay outrageous prices for shipping also.

Thank you very much for helping turn my $25000 Alembic into the bass that I dreamed of. Without finding these nickel Fodera strings on your site I was about ready to let the bass go when in fact it was just the strings that was the big issue. Now I love that bass so much that I cant put it down as well as my two other Alembics. The strings are like switching from hamburgers to Lobster as far as my playing goes.

Mahalo and Aloha, Paul Mikul

These are the best strings I've ever mounted on my Fender Deluxe Jazz Bass V. I've tried lots of other brands but these strings has great sound, clear tone and are really long lasting! Double thumbs up!!
