I'm thinking of dropping down from 11's to some 9's on one of my strats for a bit of a change, but worried about losing all the bass from my tone; is there any string sets which have really light G B and E strings but heavier E A and D strings?
like a light top heavy bottom set - quite a few choices there but usually 9-46 ( a 9 and 10 set combined) or 10-52 (a 10 and 11 set combined, roughly)
if you play with a lot of gain/OD I wouldnt worry

Not sure about 9s, but D'addiao, Rotosound and (i think) Ernie Ball do heavy bottom/light top sets in 10s
As mentioned, many companies do 'light top, heavy bottom' sets of gauges 9-46, 10-52, etc. As for losing tone, I'd say it'll open up the notes a little more so you might get some more clarity out of the low strings, but watch your tone control for the high strings.

Hendrix played 0.09s. He had some awesome bass. Adjust your EQ and use less gain (where applicable) and enjoy your new tone.
Just like most string companies we do a 9-46 hybrid set -best of both worlds
We also the 10-52 light top heavy bottom set which has been popular with many players, but following a few requests from players who found the bass strings on a regular 10-46 set too light but didn't want to step up all the way to 52s we are about to introduce another gauge which we feel may be popular. It's effectively the treble strings from a set of regular 10s and the bass strings from a set of our Legs11 set.
So it will run 10,13,17, 28,38,50
We haven't come up with a fun name or funky artwork yet (suggestions are welcome) but we'll get Vince Ray to do the artwork once again.

£3.19 a set free delivery from Tone Deaf Music on Flea Bay. Last as long as any branded standard string I've tried.
For 9-46 which is my usual gauge I'm trying out Hi Wires at the moment ... and it looks, by the pack inner, that they are just re branded DADI ... so they'll be fine.
