Will thinner strings make my StingRay growl?

  1. I was wondering if some of you had experience with more growl from a stingray, using thinner gauge. Help me, so I don't have to adjust the bass for something that ain't working anyway.
    I play a 'ray5 with medium gauge strings (45-130 D'darrio XL). The growl I want is what comes from the bass when I play the bass hard. Hope you know what I mean.

    Thanks, Lars
  2. No. Stick with .045's but Ernie Balls will be better than D'Addarios.
