What's up everyone, I'm currently playing in a band that plays with 8-string guitars. The tuning is weird in a way, but is drop A# with an added low F. The F# string is tuned a half step down to F, and the rest is tunes a half step up. However, to compensate the weird tuning, I tuned my bass to drop A# (A#,F,A#,Eb, Ab). I want to down tuned my bass to F,A#,F,A#,Eb, which are the thickest 5 strings of my guitarists and I found a string company called Circle K that makes all gauges possible for detuning. The string gauges I'm going to give it a try are .182,.136,.094,.076,.061. Will be the low F with .182 (34.2 lbs) be too much? Or go a bit lighter with .174 (31.2 lbs). Any recommendations are appreciated.
