Voltor, if you look up this patent, I think it becomes apparent that what is claimed is that "Vo Power" is a system of controlling signals from a transducer, whether that transducer is electromagnetic or piezoelectric. Therefore, I do not believe that this patent is relevant to the behavior of the more massive bass string in an electromagnetic field. I'm no electrical engineer, but it seems intuitive that you would have to have a stronger electromagnetic field to sustain the vibration of a more massive string. The e-bow may not be capable of this because it is powered by a 9V battery (in contrast, you plug your Moog Guitar into the 120V wall outlet), but certainly this remains a physical consideration for a putative Moog Bass.
