    Hi everybody

    I want to try out thing tuning (inspired by AJ and PP with Chaka and d'angelo) - but I'd like you guys to come with a few recomendentions on which brands or gauges I should choose.

    I'm using my 72 Fender P bass, and I usually use a thick (045) string and a high action.

    Thank you for your time

    i can help. i play in hella-low tunings all the time and i like thick strings, super high tension, and high action.

    DR Lo-Riders, man, theyre the best for what you want. i live by these strings. They are .45 through .110.
    they use a hexagonal core and are hand wound thicker than what they are rated, then compressed down to the actual gauge. they f***ing rock.

    I used to tune down every so often but i never had the right strings. So I usually just stick in Standard
