Hey Everyone,
I recently was playing with a guitarist who used an "E-bow" to get long, drawn out solos. The E-bow uses an electro magnet to make the string vibrate... I tried to use it on my 5-string Ibanez BTB--- and it created a sound alot like a standup bass--- which is appealing on some of the slower music--> The only problem was that the e-bow was made to effect guitar strings- not bass strings- its not powerful enough to affect the string quickly enough or strongly enough- I was wondering if you know of any E-bows available for electric bass
