I'm in a quandry. I am looking for a 5-string that will enable me to strike a string with my finger (I don't slap) and get a pronounced and rich "pop" similar to what the slappers get. I just can't seem to get the sound on my Carvin LB75 with the two stacked humbucking pickups, despite treble, bass and midrange controls. I get a pop but it is thin and fails to cut through. What is the secret to that sound and what basses deliver it?
