Hi all. I'm thinking of upgrading from my Squier Jazz Bass soon, and I'm considering the Yamaha RBX375. It will be the first 5-string I've used, and I'm not too sure if the extra string would eff with my playing. Also, will the lower frequencies pose any extra risk to my amp or cab? I use Ashdown Mag 300w head, Mag 410 and Mag 115 cabinets. I'm looking for a matching 410 on ebay, so when one comes up, I'll sell the 115. http://www.gak.co.uk/en/yamaha-rbx-375-mustard-pearl/16259 This is the pretty much the only 5-string that fits what I'm after. I used my guitar teacher's Yamaha RBX374 (4 string) and I loved it. I don't care much for "metal" style basses, but this one I could live with If I don't go for this one, it'll be a 4-string Fender MIM P bass, though it would take a lot more saving up to do. I like the tone of my Jazz bass with the pickups in series, 500k master tone and master volume. I use DR Hi-beam strings, and I'm completely happy with them. But I'm looking for something a bit more versatile and beefy in general I want something that can go from a p-bass sound to a musicman sound to a natural, flat sound. Here's a bunch of songs with the sorta tones I like: Funeral for a friend - One for the road. You can hear the sound I'm on about from about 0.30 onwards. Nirvana - Lounge act Death cab for cutie - Summer Skin That's about it I think, any more questions, let me know!
