For all of those 4players (no pun intended), who string BEAD.... Are there any drawbacks to slapping and popping? Particularly on popping the A string or slapping the B string? I am really going to start needing the deeper string but only want to play 4 strings because I want to be different (everyone in the gospel scene plays a minimum of 5 strings just because staying low is crucial). Everyone plays 5, or 6 with the occasional oddball playing 7. I figured I could just string my bass with light gauge A and D strings, normal gauge E and heavy gauge B but I absolutely could not stand the light gauge strings that came on my SX. They were way to small and the sound wasn't as thick either.
