Introduction: Electric Stick Bass

About: I am who I am they say, though I know the others really know different.

An electric bass is created using 1 broken bass string, 1 piezo transducer, part of a cheap wooden easel leg, and 2 metal rods from a bookshelf. A video is included to demonstrate the sound of the stick bass.

    Check out the band motograter!!! they took this idea to the max using steel industrial cable instead of bass string and added alot more!!! they actual don't have a traditional bass player, they only use their "motograter" instead!!

    I'm sorry but I have no idea what I just saw. When you are trying to communicate technical information (like the 'how-tos' on Instructables), simpler is better. Your video is too distracting with all the wild effects.

    Okay. I just found the real Instructable posted earlier. Negit my last (which used to mean, 'ignore my previous communication.'). So this is just a demo. I'm good with that. A little more info would have helped.
