Originally I am a guitarist but play some occasional bass too. Recently I have been asked to join my friend's death metal band as a bassist but soon realised they tune to g# standard and use 5 strings. I have an ibanez 4 string ergodyne bass and was wondering if it could handle it if I got some super thick gauge strings. The brands available near me are probably d'addario, rotosound, Ernie ball or elixir. Will my little ibanez handle such gauges and tension or will it be a sloppy clanky mess? Any advice would be appreciated also any suggestions on what to do to get the best sound thanks!
