I am going to get another bass. I have just a couple questions. Sorry if they're vague or really "newbie"-ish. 1. 5 string or no? I don't mind tuning down at all, and I don't really play many songs that use any lower notes/string. I will never join a professional band, do any recordings, or even do very many gigs. So do I need the extra string, or IS it BETTER to use the extra money on a better 4 string? 2. What should I get? I cannot test out any basses as I am 160+ miles from the only place that sells any, and even there there isn't much. I currently own a Peavy Grind bxp 4 NTB. I don't mind the way it is, but I would like a more pop/rock sound, not quite as ringy or jazz like. That thought might just be a case of me not playing or hearing any other basses, too. As far as music, I play anything other than hard rock or punk type stuff. If any of you have any suggestions at all, go ahead. I can always sell it somewhere if I really don't like it. Budget is: No more than $250 Thanks guys!
