    never seen a bassist use a capo before.

    technically we CAN use a capo (as long as the capo fits), but it's definitely not as necessary for us to have one as it is for a guitarist.

    yup, you can use a capo for electric guitar and it doesn't affect the tone. however be abit more careful when bending though, the tension is tighter imo so it is easier to break.

    cheers
    It's a long way to the top...

    There are Capos for electrics. Slighty softer tension, and a flatter cushion radius. Made by Dunlop.

    Yeap.

    Tone isn't affected but tuning might be. An acoustic capo's higher tension can affect an electric guitar's tuning because it pushes the strings down too hard - everything goes sharp.

    On bass, it depends - might not matter, might matter.
