    i wanna do slapping&poping
    so i want a good funky suond
    but i dont know how to tune my bass&amp (dont say to me "play with the bass&amp buttons")

    i have in my bass 4 knobs 1-volume 2-pickup neck, both, bridge

    and my amp:(kustom 15 watts)
    low
    lo-mid
    hi-mid
    high

    so if you have a good tune for funky sound it will be great!

    OMG, there are some bad jokes here given your country of origin...
    For slapping and popping, the bass and high are up (boosted) and the mids are low (cut). It is referred to as a "smiley face EQ"

    Tunes? Just about everything these days, seems like at times. I am an old guy. For a tune to get the hang of it, from the originator, and for a little language lesson, Sly and the Family Stone, Thank You (Falettinme Be Mice Elf Agin)

    Forgive me the humor.
