: My question simply is this, I now play gospel music in my church,very different style from my previous Metal Madness. Most of the tapes they give me to learn the bass is OBVIOUSLY playing a rumbling 5 String, I have cloned this by tuning down either a whole or half step, but when I do this I tune all four strings, my delima is Im not familur with a D tuner, being it just tunes down the E string, therfore finding the relative octive harder? or is it just something you have to adjust to? This is why I tune all 4 strings down, but im trying to do away with that, so would someone suggest what is more feasable in the long run, a Drop D tuner, or another bass. Then I have to learn the B string, uggg.
: I appreciate all comments on the Five string bass imperticular, because I am so in the dark with these monsters, Im trying now after all these years of fooling with the bass, to learn the instrument.
: Thank you.

Get the five! First time I picked one up, it was like automatic, The thing just played RIGHT. not hard, and it just gives you more freedom to move around on the neck. Go for the five!
