    when you all tap, do you use any kind of compressors, limiters or enhancers so that all the notes will be heard. i find sometimes that my high end notes are comign through, so i use a limiter/enhancer b boss (lm-2b) and it helps, but id like to stop using it if i could. any suggestions are great.

    I don't use any compression at all when I Tap... I tap live with a full band on a few songs and I never have a hard time being heard.. It really involves techinque more than how hard you hit the string or how loud you turn your bass or amp up...
