    Not good enough description to advise anything. Answer the following:

    What music do you play? What do you want to sound like? (trebley, bassy, muddy) Who has a tone you like? What are your settings on your amp? What strings are you using? How old are they? Is your bass setup with low or high action? Where you pluck the strings?
