    FWIW:

    Dimarzio's are the only bass pups I've run across with adjustable pole pieces but don't know if they make 5's.
     
  3. good answer.

    I would add that I know of some pickups for five string basses but I am not sure if they have adjustable pole pieces.

  8. Try some Thomastik-Infeld strings while you are looking. these are at odd tensions for each string and are designed for equal balance and output. Strings are strings are strings. But Thomastik's claims are usually dead accurate and not marketing hype.

    There's is a lot of output on my B string but it is relative to what speaker it is plugged into. I simply compensate automatically while playing rather than worry about pole heights. But obviously, you would have tried that by now. good luck on you search.
