I play with a one handed (my only hand) tapping technique. Recently, I switched to a lighter gauge string and found it really facilitated an ease of playing but my tone went to crap. Presently, I have emg select passive pick-ups. I was wondering if anyone could offer any guidance in selecting pick ups that would restore a rich low end sound instead of this nasal thing I got going. While I am at it, I should add that I broke out this cheap Electra bass I havent used in 10 years and was blown away by how much better it sounded and how good the slender neck felt to play on. Could it be that a cheap plastic composite neck could offer better tones for tapping?
