Les Claypool. :P

But seriously, I'd imagine it's quite similar to the trem on a guitar. Actually, there is a guy I know who has a bass with a trem, but I hardly ever see him and I forget his name. I'll try to get in contact with him and ask him for you maybe. Unless you're just after people's thoughts.

EDIT: DAMNIT! Beaten!

I saw Victor Wooten with one in a video, it sucked because I thought I was the only one who'd come up with the idea, how naive of me, I still plan to do it one day.

The tension on bass strings is many times greater than that of guitar strings. Buy a bass trem, you'll be constantly fighting with it. Also, I'm pretty sure that the only mass-produced bass trems are Floyd Rose ones, and well... Floyd Rose is... Floyd Rose.

Click "The Products", then Tremelo Systems and you'll see the Bass Trem systems appear.

And no, Floyd Rose don't make Bass Tremelos.

Played with a guy who had one - a Kramer Bass I believe. Nothing but headaches with tuning. Every time even he breathed on the bar, at least three strings out of tune.
For how much it'll be used, get a whammy pedal, or maybe a fretless.

I wouldn't call what we have here on the Bass Forum a mentality. It's more like the sharing part of an AA meeting.

rickenbacker use hipshot stuff on their basses, so i'd imagine them to be top quality.

no experience myself though.
