    I tried out an ebow on guitar at The Music Shoppe where i live and it was a very interesting effect. is it strong enough to get quality sounds out of big bass strings? It took me awhile to get used to laying it on the strings of the guitar, so has anyone had success using it on bass???

    Mike Manring has been using one for years with very interesting results.

    I've been using one on bass for about 8 years now. It takes a bit of practice to get used to it, and I'm still learning about different sounds that I can obtain with it.

    I find it works best with fretless, too.
