: 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

I've got the same bass too (minus the active). Yeah, I've never been too happy with the slap tone, but
since I'm in a heavy metal band it's never been much of an issue. You could try DR Hi-Beams (a little on
the pricy side, but they are brighter), or try a scoop-mid setting (high bass, high treble, low mid).
