I don't want an argument and people calling me a bad scientist or anything, so with out using any technical terms I'll explain my problem and see if anyone can fix it. I have medium guage strings. I'm auditioning for a band that tunes C# F# B E. I don't have a chance to get new strings before then. At the moment, my strings are very loose and floppy. Is there any way to increase my string tension, without major work on the bass?
