When i do the slap, i if im holding say the 7th fret on the A string and slap it, it just sounds like a harmonic. I've got a cheap crappy bass and 15watt amp btw.

I came here to drink milk and kick ass.

... And I've just finished my milk.

You are hitting a node, creating a harmonic.. Try hitting the string somewhere else when slapping

i believe this to be correct, unless your bass isn't set up very well. Maybe a fret is creating the harmonic?

try getting the bass set up in a shop?
