I want my bass to sound a little more, I don't know, umm, "tinny" if you will. How would I be able to do that if I can?

Could you name a song where the bass is what you'd like yours to sound like?

Golden Boy or Hamburger Train by Primus.

I'm pretty sure that's just slapping. I could be wrong though. Look up some tabs and see if I'm right.

I play slap, but i want my bass to sound a little heavier.

Edit: and i can't afford a 5-string.

Up the mids and lower the highs and lows.

You mean equalization for the amp, right?

Yes, and your bass might have the ability to do it also.

you might want to boost the highs a little bit too.
