Need help deciding on 5 or 6 (specifics inside)

  1. I really want a 6, or at least 5, string bass. I was looking at warwick thumbs the other day, they sound amazing but the balance on the fiver and me just didn't jive. how is the six? is it worse, or does it hold itself up because of the wider body? I usually play with the bass decently high, a-la vic wooten if that helps.

    I'd also like to hear any horror stories/praise about thumb sixers.
