Just a thought. I have a Fender jazz, with Thomastik flatwounds. The strings themselves are low enough tension that they can be slapped on. However, I can't seem to get good tone or consistency with it. I was wondering if it was possilbly my setup. I believe its just a standard setup the way Fender dictates it. But, also to keep in mind, I'm primarily a Jazz/Blues player, so slap is new to me, and my technique isnt stellar. So is it just my ability (or lack thereof) to slap, or is it my setup?
