    A quick one:

    What does slap sound like on a rick 4001 (if im using light gague roundwounds).

    Try to describe it please!!!

    Might explain the reason for my question a bit later, but now ive got to go..
     
  2. Derek Forbes slapped a Rickenbacker on some Simple minds tracks on the Sons & fascination/sister feelings call album- eg. "seeing out the angel", "the american".

    it sounds roughly like a P bass with the low mids scooped out, and more of a rasp to the high mids and highs.
