hi there

my problem is when i tune my bass in F C G D A the first 4 frets sound metalic it doesnt sound the note what should i do ?

It could be the neck so check that

what gague are you playing? because 2 steps down on a 5 youre going to want some massive strings
#5
Isn't that only one whole step down on each string? That doesn't require "massive strings"

i think he put the strings high to low...duh. i'm not used to it either. if it's on all the frets get higher gauge strings.

You might want to get some higher gauge strings if you're tuning down on a 5 string. The B is already quite low, so by making it lower, you're probably getting quite a bit of fret buzz.

Remember, retuning is going to need reintonating, reset of action and relief, due to the change in tension. Dropping down an E to a D is no problem, but when you do it to all four/five/six strings, the tension change is very noticeable. There should be no need to increase string gauge in this case though.
