    Pretty much entirely flat, on the bass, and the amp.

    I'm not a tapper

    For slap I eq the following;

    on parametric EQ, I do a deep-Q scoop at 1.1khz

    on graphic EQ or shallow Q paratric , I adjust the 2.4khz range. You want it high enough to cut through but not too much of a boost that it's annoying.

    Large amounts of them, I just put both pickups on for slap, not the best slap tone but it works well enough because I dont slap in songs that often. For finger style and tapping mountains of mids with lows and highs boosted slightly. Heh.. I've been playing metal to much...
