    I play a 4 string tuned to drop D, and I'm currently using a .120 gauge string on for the D, as I find lower gauges tend to sound muddy and undefined. I originally bought a medium 4 string set and replaced the lowest string with another one I bought individually, but this is an expensive way to do it. Ideally I'd like some relatively inexpensive steel strings with a thick bottom string, but the best I can find are D'addario and Rotosound strings, who both sell 'heavy' sets in which the lowest string is a .110 gauge. Does anyone know of any 4 string sets with a thicker bottom string?
