So I have this short scale bass, and I'd like to tune it to Drop C. I really don't want to detune my long scale bass (a Thunderbird, if it matters), this is my only other bass for the moment, and I need to do this quickly. Is this possible? What gauge should I get? I've been reading that .125 - .95 - .75 - .65 is a great gauge for a Drop C tuning, and short scale strings are about a .90 - .75 - .50 - .40, but I think that the .125 - .95 - .75 - .65 would be close to impossible to find for a short scale, and too thick. It's been a long while since I've played my short scale bass, but as I recall, you need to use short scale strings. So does anyone have suggestions on the string gauge? Thank you all in advance for your help.
