Looking to put some new strings on my VM Jazz bass to tune to Drop C (C-G-C-F). Figured I'd use the Killswitch Engage (since I'm gonna be playing a lot of metalcore with my friends) bassist's tactic of tuning up the B string of a 5 string set to C for a tight mid range tone. The string setups I'm looking at are either: A) a set of D'Addario EXL160XL strings with the E string swapped out for a single D'Addario .120 (basically a .50 .70 .85 .120 setup) B) D.Addario EXL220-5 set with the E swapped for the B string (.40 .60 .75 .125) C) Same as B but with Ernie Ball Super Slinky strings instead of D'Addario. Are D'Addario or Ernie Ball best for metalcore (or in general any metal and hardcore punk genres) bass or is it just preference? And which gauge setup would be better for the Drop C tuning (or is there a better setup I should consider)?
