  • String recommendations for an Ibanez 5-string

    Basically the title of the post says it all.  I bought a 5-string several months ago, and in the music store THE ONLY set of strings they had for 5 string basses was super slinky(?).  I had never tried them before so I figured why the hell not (at the time that I bought them).  Now, I'm definitely NOT feeling them.  So I'm about ready to go try another set of strings.  Any recommendations?

    Fodera - I use stainless for my five stringers, but they also have nickel.

    You can buy them direct from Fodera in Brooklyn, NY
