I haven't been playing bass with a long time but i am fairly good for the time i spent.


I play by ear and most recently ive been learning psycosocial.
I know that it is tuned down to A but i have a 4 string (yes i know Paul did also)
with the standard gauge strings and i can only just manage to pull off B F# B G tuning for when i play duailty.
(once again i know i said B F# B G... this is because i don't use the G so i see no advantage in tuning it down)

So i was wondering what kinda of strings would be a suitable gauge for my low tuning

If you use a .125 or .135 "E" string, then you will have to have the slots in your string nut opened up. You will probably need a slight adjustment of the truss rod - maybe a 1/8 turn. It is no big deal.

You could also try the Rotosound Drop Zone Plus strings.
Damn it! Disable can't use disable to disable Disable's disable because disable's disable has already been disabled by Disable's disable!
