Getting lots of USN (unwanted string noise)

    Sorry, I really wasn't sure if this was a "setup" question, or a "techinque" question so I just stuck it here. :)

    Hey cats, I've decided it's time that I sit and get my tapping down to a sastifactory level. Problem is though, my tapping on the G and D strings is making my A string ring out a bit. As you can imagine, it's rather difficult to mute that string in the middle of a phrase. Two handed tap is really a nightmare for strings the still ring out, even after I let off on them. How should I handle this? Should I do something with the setting of my action? Would a higher end bass have the same problem. Should I search e-bay and used music sites for a Kleen Axe? Or is my problem not with the bass, but my techinque. Am I coming down on the fretboard to hard? I'm I leaving off the strings to abruptly with my two handed tap?

    Your help is very much appreciated. :)
