I have a Jazz Bass with active EMG Bassline pickups, and have no problem getting a good slap sound out of it. I have few suggestions: 1) use the heaviest and brightest strings you can deal with (I like Ernie Balls 2)get the action as low as shouldn't take much effort to get the string to slap the board 3) get a punchy sounding amp and speaker cab...trace, swr, G & K, Eden.

Of course, getting a Jazz Bass would help too.;>)
