I don't really understand why basses have 24 frets, I mean, I've never seen a bassist playing more than the 12 fret.


My Gear-
Warwick Double Buck
Epiphone EB0
GK MB 210
Fender Rumble

Give a boost to the low and high end and cut the frequencies near 400.

scoop your mids. I usually use the bridge pick up on humbucker basses but the neck has a very warm feel.

Yeah like what they said, tone down your mids and boost your lows and your treble. you want to set your treble quite a bit higher than your bottem end, becuase your treble really bring out that slap tone that I suppose your looking for.
Treble>Epiphone Prophecy EX - MXR micro Amp - MXR Blue Box - MXR Fullbore - MXR Noise Clamp - Vox AD30VT
Bass>Ibanez BTB505 - MXR Blowtorch - MXR D.I. - Peavey MaxBass 700 - Peavey TVX410

with money- new amp, maybe a compressor.

otherwise- work on your own precision and your EQing. only you know what you want to sound like when you slap- tell us.

I wouldn't call what we have here on the Bass Forum a mentality. It's more like the sharing part of an AA meeting.
