ok i've been playing bass for a while now and wanted to try slap bass a bit but everytime i slap my E string i hear this click like the string is hitting the fret board. does this mean my action is too low or am i just slapping too hard

It's hitting the pup.

Turn up your amp, you don't have to slap that hard.

Actually, when you slap, you are supposed to hit the fretboard. That is part of the sound. However, make sure it isn't hitting the pickup magnets, as said above.

Turn your amp up! You just might be hearing the "click" from you guitar and not from the amp. Also, try EQing the amp. Boost you lows, drop your mids, and boost your highs. Lastly, make sure your thump is recoiling quickly. If you don't recoil, all you will hear is a loud click (muted slap)

Don't get new strings unless you need them. Dead strings don't cause a loud pop through your amp.
