    Hey, I am the (co/primary) singer for my band, NOA.
    We are an experimental rock band, and I was just wanting to see how many of us thumpers sing?
    By the way I was just wondering what tunings to you all primarily use?
    We use standard tuned down 1/2 a step....so, Eb...
    Some times we do drop-D down 1/2 a step, but mostly (98% of the time we do Eb.)
    Im doing producing a song and being the session bassist for this band called Chance of Reign, and theyre guitarist's tuning is Drop D down 2 whole steps and a 1/2!
    Thats like Drop A! Its really low, good thing I have heavy bass strings, lol.:smug:

    Anyways, see ya! :bag:

    I sing and tend to use standard tunings. Being a pianist as well I tend to get lower notes from my bass pedal synth and some songs of mine have no electric bass at all, and the whole bass line is played by my left hand on the keys.

    Some alternate tunings I have used though instead of synth bass:

    DADG (pretty standard)
    Eb Ab Db Gb (again standard)
    DGCF (also standard)

    for the wierd ones:

    Eb CDA
    EEEE (same gauge each sting for all four as a joke, did it for a guitarist who thought bassist only played one string)
