The "alternative to a 5 string" thread got me thinking. Has anyone here tried stringing up thier 5 string basses E thru C? I tried out a 6 string bass a while ago and while I was very intrigued by it, another bass purchase is out of the question. So I'm thinking about trying E thru C on an old 5 string bass I have to see if that higher string would even agree with me in the long haul. It may and it may not. My other 5 string is staying B thru G, but I feel like experimenting a bit with the other.
