What string gauges do I need to tune to CGCF?
110 or heavier.
i trying to figure it out my self.i looked at the string i have now and i figure for evry half step down you add .05 to what you would use for you normlae string in normlae tunning.
that be like if you using .050 .070 .085 .105
.125 for c
.095 for g
.080 for c
.060 for f
Buy a 5 string set and use the lowest 4 strings.
u need to use a light 5 with out a g string.
isn't that for BEAD tunings?
add .05 per 1/2 step detuned to each string on whatever gauge you are using now. 45 65 85 105 strings (common bass string gauges) would be:
F - 55
C - 75
G - 95
C - 125
happy nu metal playing, kornchild
i'm currently thinking of doing the same thing... would tuning the 100, the 80, and the 60 up like that put too much tension on the neck?
I tune in 5ths all the way up (CGDA), and I'm currently using 135, 105, 75, 45. That's some serious tension, but man! the tone!
I tuned my 5 up a half step, C F A# D# G#, that was harsh. I'd probably say a .120 for the low C would be good, if you are just going to keep it in drop C.
