    I like tunning low, step and half down. I have 5 string. But the strings are too loose and doesn't sound tight. Is there any strings I could buy to sound better?

    Full disclosure, I'm a certified Fender technician working in a music store that carries Fender, Yamaha, and Ibanez products among others.
    Yeah, the heaviest guage strings you can buy. But detuning as low as that can quickly reveal the difference between a starter and a really high quality instrument. You may just have to put up with string floppiness and slop. What kind of bass are playing through?
