Try a set of DDTs...
Normally I'd agree with you, but I just played a jam with the 45s tuned to drop c and it worked pretty well with the exception of the lowest notes on the "e" string being too floppy and not resonating well.
I'll try the low riders first at 50-110 and see what they're like, and go from there I guess. Thanks!
