I know...."why in the hell would you need a drop tuner on a 5 string??" I've been over this with some buddies of mine.....the band I'm currently in we play a lot of songs that are in "drop D", also there are a few songs that have bass notes lower than D. I hate to compromise the coolness of those low bass notes by playing them an octave higher, but also I enjoy the sound of the open D string in those "detuned" songs. So I guess really what I'm asking......Is there a 5 string bass that a hipshot or similar drop tuner can be used on the E string? I was looking at my old fender 4 string bass that has a hipshot on it and it doesn't look like there would be room for the lever if it was on a 5 five string. Any ideas??
