Hello everyone! I have my Epiphone Viola bass sitting around with my other basses and I’m wanting to do something different with this one. As it has a viola shape I though of tuning this baby like a 16th - 17th century bass violin (essentially a whole step down to the modern cello to accomodate the scale of the bass). I’m planning on getting roundwound strings. I’m trying to figure out what would be the ideal gauges of string to get for the BbFCG tuning. (I mislabeled the tuning as B#CGD in the earlier version of this post).
