    i found out that getting single strings cost too much cash, so im looking for a nice thick gauge set. here is the thickest set i found so far


    anybody know any companies that are a little heavier but not over 40 bucks or anything?
  2. Those Fodera's are on my fretless. They're great and nicely balanced all the way. Well worth the money.

    Yesterday I tried a set of Indiƫ strings (extremely cheap) but these are crap.

    yeah, i think im going to bite the bullet on these..

    what gauge is your 6er fretless? how is the b string?
  4. The gauges are .034 - .050 - .070 - .080 - .110 - .135

    This set has got the thickest high C available as far as I could find.
    The B string is perfect: Tight, just flexible enough and extremely well pronounced. Even the harmonics are all there. I was used to TI's. So I needed some time to get used to the heavy gauge and they're more rigid. Now I got quite some compliments on my sound.

    Did you try calling Fodera direct? They made me a custom 5 string set for around the same price they sell their standard sets. If the gauges in that set aren't exactly what you want, call 'em. They'll make you whatever you want and you'll probably only pay a few dollars more.
