    I play very fast thrash metal with a pick in a band. I am looking for a set of string that stays very tight in E flat tuning / half step down when playing with a pick. I tried thicker strings but it seems like the thinner strings are tighter on my other bass albeit not tight. I always thought the thicker the more tension but I can see how that might not be but anyways. What does everyone recommend?

    DR DDTs are designed for just that.

    Try rotosound drop zones if you want some seriously tight strings.
  6. Try Circle K Strings if you want some seriously tight strings and also way more gauge options ;)
    I'd say like a .118 or .112 balanced set would be high tension but still very playable.
