    I wouldn't say it necessarily improves the bass, but it gives you a dimension that other basses don't have. And it is definitely not for looks, unless you are a poseur.

    i don't see how it would improve it any more, it depends really who's looking at it. i think that it would be pretty cool to have one. i mean, look at a lot of stuff les claypool uses it with, it sounds badass!

    A very similar thread was started a few days ago:

    why dont basses have a trmbelo?

    Read through this, you'll find it very helpful. Oh, and IMO they're fun, but not worth the trouble in the long run.
