    Sorry, I'm new. What sort of settings should I be putting on my amp for a Slap bass tone? I know to take the mid and bass out but I still can't get it. I want it to sound like the new Prince song The One U Wanna C. Thanks!!!

    Start flat. Then maybe slightly cut the mids.. try boosting the highs and lows a bit. Perhaps try boosting the low mids and cutting the high mids instead.

    strings are a factor too. slap bass sounds much better with a fresh set of strings.
     
  4. Exactly, so make sure your not like me, have an amp with only a 3 band high mid and low and unable to boost a mid low or mid highs. I can still get a decent slap tone out of it since I have a Stingray.

    same here, I cannot find the best slap tone out of a stingray through a BL600. I have 4 band low, low mid, hi mid, treb.

    anyone care to help out?
