You could, but I personally wouldn't recommend it. If it comes to that, you might as well just buy yourself a 6-string bass

I used to tune my 6-string to drop-B and drop-Bb and sometimes it would sound really muddy when unplugged, but I EQed the amp and distortion so that it sounded badass when played through the amp. I don't remember exactly what it was, but it was something like: bass - 4, mids - 5, treble - 8. I might be remembering incorrectly, but I think that's what I had it at. The lowest I ever tuned the low B on my 7-string to was Ab. And that was too loose (at .56, I think).
