Just got a Mustang P/J, and have a Hofner on the way. I like the sound of the strings on the Fender. I like bright. I like bright and thick even more, but here's the special request part... My band plays tuned down a half step. Are there any string that would give me tighter tension, without going to a higher gauge? I like to dig in a lot, and that ain't happening anymore unless I find me a solution. Help? OH YEAH... PLEASE READ ALL THE ABOVE BEFORE RESPONDING TO THE TITLE. I'M NOT THROWING FLATS ON. THANK YOU .
