Tuning double bass half step lower
Hello everybody,i'm a electric bass player fell in love with double bass a year and half ago.
i'm looking to get a gig in a band,they play many styles,most electric bass,sometimes acoustic,they play everything tuned half step lower.
When i tried to tune half step down my Slap King double bass with Innovation Silver Slaps on it,it seems that the tension is too loose,on E and A strings in particular,it's hard to have a precise pitch.
There's someone who can recommend a brand or a gauge of strings for double bass for this particular problem?
Suggestions are appreciated
