What experiment you say? Well I got home from vacation today and was playing some bass. I've got Jazz Flats on my 5-string jazz and I love the tone but I'm not a big fan of the tension. So I decided for the heck of it to tune my standard 5 set from BEADG to EADGC and its awesome. Although when I tuned the D string up to G it slipped out of the peg hole because it was cut too short so theres a LaBella Jamerson G string in there now till I order a new single. Still I love the feel now and I've always wanted to have a 5 at EADGC.The tension is similar to my LaBella Jamersons but a little bit looser.
