I really don't know wether to put this in strings or Setup, but here's the deal. I am tired of the Low-B on my new 5-String Bass. I never use it, it sounds muddy when played with other instruments, and I don't really like the big string getting in the way. I was thinking about going back to 4, but now I've decided I want to try out a High-C string. I was also wondering if changing the gauge of the strings would make it any easier to play. I haven't played a bass that was properly set up, and I was thinking about going for a lower action and lighter gauge strings. Ahem... sorry for rambling... I play in a rock/metal band. Major influences are Tool, Deftones, Mudvayne... I play a Peavey Grind Bass Neck-Thru 5 string on a Peavey Combo 300 w/ 15" speaker. I want a sound that will cut through the mix but can also sound mellow when I want. I also want easier fretting and lower action. Thanks in advance, and sorry for the rambling.
