    Do tweeters make a big difference in the clarity of the sound for someone who doesn't slap or use a pick? Im trying to decide if I need a tweeter in the new cab Im about to buy. Sometimes it seems like I have enough volume but I would like the sound to be clearer. Would a tweeter help with this or do they moslty just add fretty clickety clack?

    A tweeter can extend the range of sound you reproduce, regardless of technique. It doesn't have to sound clacky, depends on all the usual variables... amp and bass settings, strings, how you play, etc.
