hi all i am new to these forums so bear with me. i own a yamaha RBX375 5-STRING it has the original pick-ups. i am looking for a bright, clean tone like say staind-mudshovel. i can get the punchy sound but the clean clear brightness is not there and if i try for the brite sound, the treble makes my sound too trebley. i would really love to play some slap funk stuff, but i cannot get a good tone. so any ideas? is this bass not capable of this? strings? pre-amp? pick-ups?
