5 String Bass Tuning


Recommended Posts

  • Members

I only have and play 4 string basses.


With 5 strings basses, I thought the extra string was a low B, but I had a new student come in yesterday and he had a 5 string Cort but strung with the usual E,A,D and G and the extra string was on the top - tuned to C. Is that common? Are 5 string basses made to work either way? Because I've never even inquired about a 5 string bass, I don't know ....I want to make sure he's not putting undue stress on the neck
