    hey all,

    I've tuned my bass to CGCF, with gauges 125, 95, 75, 55.

    The only thing is I find the Low C (125), still a bit slack and not a tight as i think it should be.

    From what I can remeber from a friends 5 string bass - the bottom B string didnt seem that slack, and that could definately have been no more than 130.

    so... am i right in feeling that the 125 tuned to C should not be that slack? it feels slacker than my my old 105 tuned to E.
