Hello all, Recently I have been required to play in drop a# tuning as well as standard. Unfortunately at the moment, I only have 1 bass (Warwick Corvette, 4 string) which I have been dropping to this tuning for demo recordings. However live I am going to need another bass to cover this tuning. I don't really like playing 5 strings all that much so I was thinking of getting a Thumb, making that my main bass, and then using the Corvette as my a# bass live. Is this a good idea? Will having the strings at this tuning do something to the neck? Would you recommend using normal heavy gauge strings or putting low b, e, a, d on instead and then dropping that. Or alternatively, is this the totally wrong thing to do, in which case should I get a 5 (such as a Schecter elite). The 5 for me is a last resort, and if the other idea could work I'd really prefer that. Any advice you guys could give me would be just swell, thanks in advance.
