I am trying to attempt to play a song by August Burns Red that requires drop C tuning. I know very little information about the bass as an instrument, I'm just learning how to play it and I wanted to learn a new song. Anyhow, the problem I ran into is that when I tune my strings down that low, they flop around way too much. Specifically the E string, but I have the money to replace all of them. I have an Ibanez GSR200 with the original strings and they work fine for me when tuned at standard, but are just horrendous in drop C. I use a pick to play and the genre would be metal/metalcore. My bass has a sort of poppy sound when I strum on it and if possible I would like to keep that or maybe smooth it out if necessary. String reccomendations would be much appreciated.
