Greetings bass fanatics, I have a dilemma and need some guidance. My band is writing songs from the tunings of: D#G#,C#F# (half step down) all the way down to C#,F#,B,E (one and a half steps down). I currently use a 5-string and am tuning up and down as needed between songs. the problem is the strings get too loose the lower i tune and im guessing its not so great for the intonation and the neck. My question is, what strings would work the best when tuning between those listed above without causing problems? btw.. im not worried about going up to standard as we never go there and i have a second bass that i play in standard.
