hello, I have decided its now time to replace the factory strings on my bass. The factory ones have been brilliant but they are so dead now its horrible. So I spent a while looking around and settled on the D'Addario EPS170 prosteels. I love the piano sound of steels. but i do have one question. with regards to string gauge does and extra .5 up or down make a difference? There are conflicting views on this.

thanks, MrMouldyBread
