My band is considering that we all tune down to Eb.
Not for the sound but to make it easier for the singers to hit the high
I have never done this.
Obvously I will need heavier strings if I do it.
To you guys who tune to Eb...what size strings do you use?
I don't think one necessarily needs heavier strings.
I tune down 1/2 step on a Guild acoustic (Darco strings -- light
gauge 80/20 bronze wound) without any problem.
It sounds fine to my ears...
And I've heard that many grunge metal bands tune down 3 semitones.
