Are there any strings that give higher tension without being as thick as a baseball bat? The only problem in my bass at the moment is that the E & B strings feel quite floppy. I usually tune a step down (E into D etc.) and this causes some of the floppiness, but i'm sure not all... I use D'Addarios. The bass shouldn't be a problem either, Ibanez EDB series is known for the good string tension. Hints and tips, experiences and stuff would be welcome.
