    A while back a friend of mine told me, he is one of our guitar players, that he saw a bass player performing and said "he used this cord with a blue light on the end of it and when he put it up to the strings while he played it made a cool noise" Or somehting like that, anyone hear of something like this? Thanks

    Perhaps it's an ebow? It's not really a cord, but...

    You can read more about it in Steve Lawsons forum.

    Easybass, did you forget to take your medication?:D

    Seriously, as hujo suggested, it sounds as if your friend is describing an ebow.

    I'd really love to try one of those out. Unfortunately, I live in the north of Sweden. :(

    I think they should make one especially for bass!
     
  5. That would be cool if they made one for bass. But mine does just fine, its a great tool. I use it all the time on my fretless.
