whats that company that make billy sheehan's d-tuner? they make them....just so u know u cant use them like guitar whammy bars, more often than not u can just change to set pitches which are notched on the bar...

Whammy bars are mostly used to lower a note not raise it.

I think stone is either 7 or 14 lbs

Edit I'm gonna go with 14 because it's rather unlikely you're 56 pounds

Then you could bend before playing the note, then depress the bend.

Kahler and Hipshot both make very good bass tremolos.

Fender doesn'[t make trems. Kahler and Hipshot both make very good trem bars for bass.
#11
Jaco and Billy Sheehan Press down on their headstock to do some low vibrato. The Kahler tremolo (not sure about the Hipshot) requires routing to the top of your bass, so I'd be wary.

Maybe you should've told this to the person who invented the Tremolo arm, you could have saved him a lot of time.
The idea is to hit the actual note and then bend it with the whammy bar!

For your music maybe, but remember, your genre of music is just one of many. I have a trem on one of my Basses I don't think its stupid.

^I know that one Floyd Rose for a bass was built. However a bass Floyd Rose has never been in production and you would have to comission the Flyd Rose shop to get one (and that equals big $$$). The Kahler is a floating trem, and I think the Hipshot is too, so it's essentially the same thing.

I believe Les claypool has a hipshot on one of his rainbow basses.

By the way, Billy sheehan uses a Hipshot D-tuner(or bass x-tender) on the headstock. but he does crazy neck bends aswell. His yamaha is designed with a reinforced neck pocket for neck bending.

^Seriously people.......Les Claypool only has ONE (meaning a single) Rainbow bass. In fact, there is only one Rainbow bass in existence. Also, it does not have a trem.
#21
les claypool has a kahler trem on one of his two 4 string piccolo basses. The Rainbow bass has a handmade wooden bridge like an acoustic bridge. I would recommend kahler, because they're one of the few companies that make floating bridges similar to floyd roses. Claypool uses one in too many puppies and keeps it depressed to the body of the bass and then comes back into tune right away. I have no experience with hipshot, so i dont know if theyre better.

oops, sorry, I take that back. I kinda assumed that all of his Carl Thompsons were called rainbow basses.

I mean this one:
