Fodera Bass Strings
Fodera Bass Strings are the perfect compliment to your Fodera bass, or any bass for that matter. Available in 4,5, & 6 String sets and used by professional players such as Victor Wooten, and Anthony Wellington Fodera strings are perfect choice for those looking for a high-end boutique tone.
Most small, custom builders are content to simply buy strings made by large string manufacturers and put their name on the package. That would be a lot easier, but we are certain that the tone and playability of our instruments would suffer compared to how they perform with our Fodera Strings.
Our strings are compressed round wound and are available in Nickel or Stainless Steel.
Stainless Steel brings a brighter tone to our strings, while Nickel brings a warmer tone. Unlike many other manufacturers' nickel strings, ours have nickel plated wire for all of the wraps, not just the outer wrap. The wrap wires are wound over a light round core wire, compressed under high, precisely controlled tension.
Our four, five, and six string sets are available in either Standard or Extra-Long (XL) lengths. The XL's are meant for basses with a 36 inch scale length or basses that have a 35 inch scale and are strung through the body. Our five and six string sets are also available in Tapered B and XL Tapered B options.
