No they aren't. They just de-tune heavily.

Any and all Primus, although you'll need a six-string for some.

EDIT: Beaten to the first part...damn, play me off, Johnny!

Also, Mudvayne has some sweet 5er songs.

What's great about a 5 string bass is that for any real song (Sorry, but 6 string basses are just silly), you will never have to change your tuning!

Any real song? So 90% of the metal bands that play in different tunings are considered fake?

I fail to see why a 6 string bass is silly.

Bollocks to that. Firstly, what the hell is a "real" song? How the hell are 6 string basses just silly? And finally, a 5th string is not a replacement for drop tuning.

F*ck it, that's going into the FAQ.

This is all that needs to be said on the subject of "5 string songs":

Quote by Wonthefu
Transpose songs you already know to use the B string.

Remember that a fiver isn't just about having those five extra low notes at the bottom of the fretboard, it's about having five extra notes in any hand position.


There.

Awhhhh its all the same bands being said. HOW BOUT SOME STREETLIGHT MANIFESTO! Pretty much all of their songs are 5-string, and I know that all guitar pro of the new album is transcribed in 5-string.
#20
Many Dimmu Borgir songs are played on a 5 string, even their guitars are in E standard. Their bass lines are usually pretty melodic for a black metal band, too. The song in specific I'm talking about is "The Insight and the Catharsis" from their album "Spiritual Black Dimensions."

I use it for that sometimes,
a lot of tool songs can now be played without downtuning the e tot d.

I play the pot with the d on the b-string and the octave. That actually makes the transition a lot easier -> economy of motion!

+ when it is tuned to c I find it much easier to tune the B up -> not floppy!

I said a low B is not a replacement for downtuning with the intention of meaning in the grand scheme of things- hell, you said yourself that you tune the B up to C. If you read anything I say about five strings, I'm always banging on about economy of motion, but sometimes not downtuning can be more detrimental to playing than helpful with a 5 string.

And I fail to see where you would increase economy of motion by not downtuning on a song where most notes played on the downtuned E string are open notes anyway. The open string is in every hand position.

fair enough, tool was indeed a bad example.

My point was though that I prefer uptuning more then downtuning because of the floppyness.

If I remember correctly as its been a while since someone mentioned it, its a neck/string tension thing. Not good for either.

I've always kept my 5er in C - it's only used for stoner stuff (Kyuss, Sleep etc are all in C) and jazzy improv stuff which can be played in any tuning really. It's 34" scale and it's always been strung with Rotos and I've had no problems with it over the year and a half or so I've had it.
