Tuning a half step down.

  1. I just got my bass nice and set up by a guitar tech.. I like to use the tuning Eb Ab Db Gb and sometimes I drop the Eb down to a Db (C#). Will this affect my neck? I tried it and it doesn't buzz, not too floppy either (I still use medium gauges strings [45-105] But will leaving it like this screw up what the guitar tech did??

    Naah, you're fine. As long as nothing's rattling and it all feels good, you're not messing anything up.
