When purchasing a 5-string bass, the old saying holds true: “You get what you pay for.” Generally, the higher the price of the bass, the better the quality, features, and sound. However, this doesn’t mean that there aren’t lower-end models available that will meet your needs. Before buying your first 5-string bass, it’s advisable to read reviews. Reviews can be found on various websites and bass guitar forums. If you have a local music store, they may allow you to try out different models on the store floor. Pay close attention to the feel and sound of the bass and make sure it’s properly tuned and stays in tune.

Many online stores offer the best prices on 5-string basses. Additionally, platforms like eBay often have a wide selection of both used and new 5-string bass guitars. When purchasing online, it’s important to carefully consider the seller’s feedback and ask for detailed photos to assess the condition of the bass. For discontinued models, you can usually visit the manufacturer’s website and review previous manuals to find information about the features included on the bass. Just because a bass is no longer in production doesn’t mean it’s a bad instrument. Manufacturers often update models to improve craftsmanship and features. Personally, my favorite 5-string bass is one that was made in the early 90s, showcasing the enduring quality of older models.
