    i want to tune my bass to c dropped tuning
    but i dont know whats the best way
    i have a 4-stringed Ibanez

    if i tune down the E string to C then it will be too lose
    and if i put on my bass strings B E A D (not G)
    and tune them to C G C F
    E A D strings will be too tight
    and i dont know if thats ok for the bass
    or sholud i put on strigns
    B A D G
    so i just tune B to C
    and A D G one tone down

    whats the best way???

    Petary. In some locations, it is.

    It's a B in some parts of Europe IIRC.

    I would buy a 5 string set and tune the B up and use the ADG strings tuned down.
