Alternately you could just buy a Warwick.

Or a Rickenbacker The stock pickups in a Rick produce a harsh clanky sound. Cuts through the mix really nice.

Anyone who has seen footage of Cliff Burton will notice that he used this technique. Most of the time he was hitting the strings really hard with his right hand.
