Looking for strings for a 5-string tuned to C#
Sorry if this has been asked before, but I didn't get anywhere with the search functionality - "c#" is too short, and "c-sharp" only picks up "sharp".
I play a 5-string, 34" scale MIM Fender Jazz. It's tuned C# F# B E A, and I'm never sure whether to think of it as a 5-string tuned up, or a high-C 5-string tuned down. I currently have Ernie Ball Super Slinkies on it (40-125) but the tension is too much. Tone-wise it's great.
My options seem to be dropping to either 120, or 110. 115 sets seem to be something of a rarity. Any suggestions?
If it's useful, I play progressive black metal with the bass pretty prominent in the mix. Most of my tone comes from a VT-Bass pedal with the character around noon, and a bit of a mid-scoop.
