so my band has to tune down to drop B and i was wondering what would easier?

should I:

a.) get a BEAD setup and get lighter strings to tune up to B F# B E

or

b.) get really high gauge strings for an EADG setup and just tune down from there.

Thanks for your help!

I'm glad to hear that.... what now?

deftEDIT: okkay, lol.


I'm in the same area, having to play in B. I'm running an ESP F104 with Ernie Ball .110's and it's holding tune well in a live setting so far.

Shwiggity.

Get nice thick strings... Or a 5 string bass and tune it BEADG so you don't have to tune between band/everything else

yeah i accidentally hit enter... look at other thread


A) Enter doesn't post a message, and B) you made a new thread instead of just pressing "edit?"

I play in a band where both guitarists tune to drop b. I have 2 basses I use for this band:
1. 4 string set up with 110s tuned BEAD
2. 5 String set up with 130s tuned to BEADG
This wouldn't work in every drop B situation but so far I havn't had a problem.

Okay guys, I have a confession to make. Not really a confession since it's something that's been bugging me for awhile but I've always been in denial about it.

**** you gilly, it's not what you think
