: wuzuuuup, I just got a new bass and i love it a lot, but when i play slap bass it sounds pretty bad. the bass is a yamaha 5 string BBG5S series, it has active electronics, but it still sounds like crap. does any one have any input on this bass or any advice to make me sould better. please tell meeee!!!!!!!! thanx

Hey, I play the same bass and also love it. One thing to remember is that this bass has a very strong P-bass vibe, so it does not have the brightness for a modern slap tone. However, I can get a nice "old-school" slap tone out of it. You can try new strings, a different amp and see what tones you get; it may be that this is not the ideal bass for you to slap on. Good luck.
