The EBow is a hand-held electronic bow for guitar. This small battery-powered unit replaces the pick in the right hand letting the guitarist mimic strings, horns, and woodwinds with unbelievable sensitivity. The EBow produces a powerful infinite sustain, rich in harmonics for incredible guitar sounds. Unlike plug-in effects, the Energy Bow does its work on the string itself... Direct String Synthesis™. Infinite Sustain is just the beginning.
Put down your pick and use the EBow Electronic Bow for Guitar to create synth-like effects using your guitar. The EBow is powered by a 9V-battery and operates by using a tiny electrical charge that sets up an energy field which then vibrates the string it is placed on, thus giving you unlimited sustain until it is removed. There are two modes operated by a single switch on the device. One is the Fundamental mode which holds or affects the note you play solely and the other is Feedback mode, which allows you to control the feedback signal even at low volumes.
By using the EBow Electronic Bow for Guitar you can create unique sounds such as a reverse-tape effect, or an emulated horn or synth. You can add distortion to your guitar for a soaring lead sound or try placing it right over the guitar pickup to create an increased volume to mimic a “hot” pickup tone. Play fast, left hand licks, use it to create gorgeous arpeggios, and so much more.
