    I want to get a nice slap tone like in this funky song:

    Or even A Squier Precision Bass

    I'm just stuck!
    I have an Acoustic B15 amp but just don't know what to do!
    :bassist:
     
  2. My slap technique is really terrible but the first bass that made me sound moderately decent at it was a fretted Fenix (basically a Korean Squier) Jazz. While you're on Youtube, check out the reviews by 11coopbass:

    He has fantastic ability (the most important thing) and tries out a lot of affordable stuff from Rondo and others. Mostly Jazzes, but a MM and Precision copy feature, amongst others. A lot of them are pawn shop finds for not much money. See what tone you like and start trying those basses out.

    I can't emphasize enough that working on technique is worth more than choosing a particular brand or design. This video of his is one of my favourites:

  3. I own both a Squier Vintage Modified Jazz....and the Newer Epiphone Tobias Toby...and I have to tell you right out of the gate the Squier is a much better built instrument...

    I don't do a lot of slapping so YMMV..
