I use that tuning for almost all my basses. I also use a hipshot so I can "de-tune" as well.
Thanks for the info! I just bought an old Peavey TL-5 (killer bass...absolutely killer...unbelievably undervalued) and have begun the E-C transformation. The local GC had a detuner in their clearance bin that they couldn't give away so I figured it was karma and I had enough spare/old strings around to put together an E-C set. The spacing on the TL-5 is around 19mm, so perfect for slapping.
You will now excuse me while I disappear off to the practice room for a few months to work on my thumb technique
