Amp Settings for Finger Tapping

Anyone know a good amp setting that allows me to hear the bass better when I finger tap? Thanks.

Well... I put the bass on 10, mids on 5 and treble on 0 on my active preamp, and on my amp I have the bass at 6, mids at 1, and treble at 10 and it works fine for me.

Try.. Bass at 5, mids at 8 and treble at 10, that should be nice and clear

i have and old school amp with two channels, so i set mine on 4/5 gain, 3/3 pre, 4 mid., and 6 treb.

I don't like really clear tapping, it still needs to sound like a bass, not a guitar like Sheehan does ( dont worry im not dissing Sheehan he could obliterate any of us anyday of the week ), im just saying it still needs to sound bassy even if you are tapping up a storm.

"tapping up a storm"

I don't know why but that's the best expression ever.

I don't tap too much, the two ones I find funnest to do are actually originally played on guitar:
The "Hook in Mouth" tap solo, and
The intro solo to "Looking Down the Cross", both by Megadeth. (and both killer songs I must add)
Some people say to think outside the box.
I say do away with it. You can always stand in its former location if you need to make use of the perspective it gave you, but will benefit from the ability to situate yourself in different loci with ease.
Destroy the box.

In order for tapping to be more clear I would highly recommend getting something like the Boss GEB-7 Bass EQ pedal. That would allow to boost your treble to make your notes sound more clear AND bring up your levels so you more audible.
