So, I have a 6 string bass, and have been tapping a buttload lately, and I was wondering, what are some ways (strings, tone, adjustments, etc) to get better tapping sound?

old strings suck for tapping. keep new ones on.

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.

I don't know about adjustments to the bass, but as far as improvement on tapping....... one way to get better sounds is to let the tone hold out. Tap appregios/chords as whole notes instead of 1/16 or whatever notes we usually do. It helps strengthen your fingers and you tend to find out how to make the sounds you want when you tap.

I hope that helps/made sense

I prefer lower action on my bass for tapping, it helps a lot with execution and makes it easier to make the notes sound out.
