I have 3 4 strings and just bought a 5 today, which do you prefer and why, they both have thier pros and cons

Four string. Easy to pop/slap, among other techniques. And I dont think the extra 5 notes per position is THAT attractive. Most people dont even use the ones they have with a 4 string.

Depends on the music I am playing.

One band I use a 4 string dropped to D standard or drop C, they play metalcore.

The other band I play a 5 string, more rock/metal sound.

"Cool" isn't very important though. Playing well and sounding good is better.

I've got three 4s and a 5. I think I prefer 5 on the whole, but there are advantages to 4 (more choice of instruments, the simplicity of it can be good, wider string spacing can be a bonus)

5 string is better because....

I've always just liked 4 strings better.

For the most part, I find the bottom string unnecessary.
