ok so i alway use the ones that go 9-11-16-24-32-42 but i got these new ones that r 9-11-15-24-32-40 and was wondering wat the difference would be??? will the sound be different or what??? please help me ...i use regular standard tuning Eadgbe if that helps

I very much doubt that you would notice a difference. There would be an extremely subtle drop in tension (with an accompanying drop in brightness) on the G and E strings, but that's it.
#3
third and last strings are thinner than the original but shouldnt be too big of a difference really
Send me off to bed forevermore.

they will just have a brighter sound, thicker strings like 10-46 have a deeper, heavier sound. and the tuning is eBGADE

and this is coming from a bassist... >_>

Is there such a thing as a heavy riff with out chugging on the e string?

Hijack thread ahoy!

Anyway, usually, the thicker the gauge, the more full the tone is, but thinner strings tend to be easier to play. Like others said, a subtle difference. It shouldn't take you too long to get used to it.

Wrong forum, I believe

With the thicker strings you not only get the meaty thicker bottom but also a more present and balanced high end.

basically the bigger the better when it comes to sound unless you like weak thin twang

^ yeah i agree with nick, i use .70 - .011 and they BOOOM.... but thinner strings will have a thinner sound.
