I play slap bass with a K and K rockabilly as my weapon of choice. Everything sounds fantastic, but when I slap a triplet it sounds muffled through the amplifier. I get a loud thump that overpowers the tone of the slap. If I were to guess I'd say it's the sound of the bottom of my palm hitting the fingerboard. I think the impact is being amplified by the fingerboard pickup. Of course I don't hear it at all when I play unplugged and regular 8th note slaps sound just fine. I have the pickup wire taped directly to the back of the fingerboard and the pickup itself is adhered directly at the top (where it flattens out). It's pretty much installed exactly the way the instructions tell you to. Any ideas?
