Since we are getting up there in years my band has decided to down tune a half step to help out on the vocals. The problem I have is with my 5 string bass's. Down tuning takes quite a bit of tension off the "B",and "E" string and makes them more floppy and hard to get rid if fret buzz. Also on the low "B" below "E" sounds like crap. Anyone else have the same issues,and have you found a simple solution to resolve what I am experiencing?
