    Not my thing, and I'm usually a pretty open-minded and experimental player.

    I don't forsee this taking off, but i've been wrong before.

    At any rate, I'm glad to see people are still trying to invent new ways to play.

    No, I don't see it as a breakthrough, but it would be an interesting little toy.

    I used to do that with the drummers broken drumstick.......

    Never occurred to me that I could have marketed something like that.

    While it's not Davey Williams' baseball glove full of DC motors, this is the gadget i always wanted to try on a bass.

    Not sure how it works. I've only seen one in use (on a guitar), but the guy had it down and it was pretty kewl. Here's the lowdown.

    It's got a pickup and an electromagnet inside. It 'hears' what the string is doing, amplifies that signal and feeds it back into the string via pulses from the magnet.

    They're a lot harder to use on bass than on guitar. There are little grooves on the base of it that fit onto the two guitar strings on either side of the one you're using it on. Lining it up on bass is more difficult. And it's harder to get larger bass strings started vibrating with it than on guitar.
