    I play an Eden Head and Eden 410XLT, how do I set my amp for slap tone? Passive pickups, 4 string.

    Thanks.

    For a Funk or Slap style sound

    Set the tone controls flat. Set the Enhance to taste from about 9:00 to about 12:00. You can also try setting the third parametric (right one) set to about 5:00 on the top control (frequency) and setting the bottom control (level) to about 1:00 for starters. You may want to add I or 2 clicks of addition low bass boost as well. Tune to taste but try to use as little as necessary to get your sound.
