    Steve Digiorgio - has played/recorded with Sadus, Death, Autopsy, Tetsament and many others, right now he's playing in Sebastian Bach's band, of all things, well worth your time.

    I really like the old bassplayer for Incubus, Dirk Lance. I recommend listening to the album, "S.C.I.E.N.C.E." It isn't metal. It's kind of hard rock with influences from funk, electronic music, alternative, rock, and some metal.

    Most of the metal bands I like that have 5-string bass players, you can't even hear the bass most of the time (a general problem with modern metal).

    Slightly off topic, but I read on Blabbermouth the other day that Sean Malone (ex-Cynic/OSI) is putting out a theory/instructional bass book through Hal Leonard. The blurb made a point of mentioning that it was very bass-specific but it would be cool to own nonetheless.

    Alex Webster, Steve DiGiorgio, the guy from Mudvayne is quite good too for slap/pop bass playing.

    There are so many 5-string bass players to list that I like, recently, my favorite 5-string bass player has been Tony Franklin from Tony MacAlpine's Premonition and Evolution, he is awesome. :yesway:

    Dirk Lance is good and so is Steve DiGiorgio and just about every one that was listed so far. :agreed:

    I tried most of the btb series, and it was not good. Not for that price.

    I thought he either already did, or he's been (publically) working on it for some time now...?

    Either way, the man kicks ass. This is good news.

    i play a 5-string, but I suck. :/
