drop C 5string

Discussion in 'Strings [BG]' started by oldirtybassist, Jan 8, 2002.


  1. anyone here know what size 5th string i should get to achieve a semi-tight G on the B string? i play in drop C tuning (CGCF) and want to make the 5th string a octave of the G. Will i have to custom order this gauge?

    If you mean the G that is lower than a piano, I'd use at least a .135, although I'm not too sure as to why you'd want to tune down that low.
