Over the course of the last week I've been slowly detuning my bass by a half step at a time. Right now I'm in C standard and I feel like it's at the edge of a muddy abyss, but then I felt that way about Db as well. I think I caught the bug when I switched from Chromes to TI Flats -- that low tension was very attractive. Now I'm detuning the floppiest flats in the land because I just cannot get enough flop! I love the way they respond to my touch, how easy they are to fret, how I can dig in a bit when I play up over the neck and make them slap down against the fingerboard, and how I have some new deeper note options available to me. The hardest part has been changing where the notes are located on the fretboard, but I'm up for that challenge. Keeps me sharp! Anyway I just thought I'd share my experience because it has been quite a good one that was just a turn of the tuning key away. Any love for the flop around here?
