    I currently own an active 4 string bass with on board EQ and would like to add another bass to have more tonal variation. I am considering either a 4 string passive bass (Fender Geddy Lee) or a passive 5 string Fender Jazz or maybe even an active Yamaha TRB 1004. I have tried the Geddy Lee and the 5 string fender and can't decide what would give me the most wide variety of sound to work with. I am currently only recording and not playing live while I finish up grad school hence my consideration of the active 5 string Yamaha.

    I'm set with my pair. My Fretless 6 string Benavente handles about all I do. If I need a slap or bright tone... my fretted 5 string Benavente picks up the slack.
