JT!!! where are you!!! hehe IM planning to tune my Bass A-Db-Gb-B-E for Band purposes (Im using 2 basses right now for band, AEADG and DbGbBE. and I was like "bah screw it, just use 1 bass for band) and i planned this layout. It can't be that bad. the DbGbBE is just 1/2 step off DGCF, which tuned in 4ths including A.. like ADGCF. so it can't be bad.. I was thinking what kinda gauges should I use.. I was thinking about 0.050-0.135 but maybe somethign tigther since they are 1 step and 1 1/2 step down. any reocmmendations?
