I always loved the 4 string tone and when I had to switch to 5 string, realizing loving the Low B and sometimes changed to Hi C (changing nut was a bi*^h(nuts!)) if I didn’t need the Low (Eb,D,Db,C,B) On a gig or recording, or if you had both basses w/you which would prefer !? The tone of 4string or 5? I always use 5 for when needed but sometimes I’ll switch to P-bass w/Flats and J-bass for old school:Soul/Motown/Rolling Stones/Beatles vibes. Whaddddaaaa You think!???
