: Hi.

: I would like to hear what you think is a good but cheap 5 string.

: I allready have a really good...and for me, very expensive 4 string bass which I am very happy with and I'm not trading it in for a new one, but I found myself on rare occation in need of that extra low string, so now I'm thinking about buying a 5 string just for those couple of tunes.

: Now... since we're talking about maybe 5-10 tunes, I don't want to waste that much money on the bass. So... since I never have owned a 5-string I don't know which is good or bad. So anyone have any suggestion on what to look into?
: Make and model.

: Oh, and if you know of a 5-string that isn't cheap, but still not expencive, you can yell aswell, since I got high standards and sometimes my wallet suffers for that, but just so I know when I go looking what that walletkiller is like hehe

have you concidered a "hip shot" d-tuner?I have used one for years and could not do without it,I play very fast in my kind of music and have short stubby fingers and I wont give up the slim fast necks,they can be tuned to b or d and in no time you'll be flicking it with second nature.
