What sort of amp and effects are you using?

With the bow try to use a lot of rosin and I mean a lot.

As far as effects some delay and reverb.

Edit: If it helps check out some of these vids...

I tried it out!You need a reverb and put some overdrive or Distortion to your sound.Then very gently try playing some chords without the pick but with the bow.Or just try playing only the E string.Stills sounds amazing
My pedals:
Dunlop Cry Baby Wah GCB-95
Ibanez Tube Screamer (TS-9)
Digitech Hot Head
MXR Phase 90
Digitech DigiDelay

You should maybe be a little less eager to acquire new gear, and more eager to learn how to properly use what you have.

Lots and lots and lots of rosin, and broad, sweeping strokes. You'll notice that if you apply the correct amount of pressure at a good angle you can make the string crunch and then 'sing' as you pull the bow off. It requires some amount of pressure into the string, but also remember to use a smooth motion across the strings as well, as if you were cutting into something...a turkey...yes. Happy thanksgiving.
