    Hello!

    I am quite of a newbie and I own a 4 string bass.
    Ever since I picked up the instrument I have always been a fan of very low frequences, and I regularly tone my bass in drop D. I tried tuning it lower but I don't like the lack of tention on the e-string.
    Thus, I am hereby thinking of a twist!
    What if I buy a set of strings for a 5-string bass and just get rid of the G-string in favor of a b-string, thus having a BEAD bass? Would that be viable?
