What 5-stringed bass would you recommend? I'm thinking of buying one. For at least five years, I have been using a 4-stringed bass, so I want to go to the next step in the art of bass playing.

And for all you funny people, I am not talking about fish

If you don't mind dishing out some dollars, get a Wal. They are so sweet. I've tasted one

well a 5string bass goes from B-G(B-E-A-D-G)
and a four string goes from E-G
it has a deeper sound and youll get an extra octave too your A string. well ive played with both Peavey foundation, eagle 6string and now ive landed on a ibanez btb, if your willing too spend some extra cash on a bass id say an ibanez btb, it cost around 6000kr so its not that expensive, but is very good, other wise id recomend any ibanez bass that is 5string.
vad letar du efter?!
