    It'll work fine, I've seen a lot of players use SWR for slap, as well as Gallien-Krueger, and a few others that escape me at the moment. Your Jazz bass will be excellent as well, great slap basses IMO.

    I wouldn't be woried as much about gear as I would about technique and EQ. That's where the tone comes from.
