    Tried on bass and guitar is a fun accessory that can make sounds nice but it is awfully expensive! I bought a real bow for € 15 it does not have a continuous sound as the ebow but it does not hurt!

    - Expensive for what it is, and in my opinion, it is a device to be used sparingly, but having said that, it produces a very nice sound and it produces a small effect on the audience, c ' is undeniable, especially when its working its downstream. Filres with a reverse delay, distortion, there's plenty to do really terrible things.

    We put some time in early to find the right position, then even more time behind the rope to change. We eventually set it aside until we look back and say that is that the sound will be nice for such a passage of such recovery or composite. So we end up bring it to every rehearsal and inflate everyone for a few minutes by using it on a cover of Pink Floyd on a solo ending. Other musicians who were friends before all this, do not on speaking and whispering behind your back. The E bow is a social drama as to summarize, there is a bit expensive compared to the anecdotal use that one has, as a result we want to settle down anywhere, then it becomes reasonable and it becomes nice ...

    The Ebow (electronic bow) is a guitar effect.
    Used by the greatest, it is one of the most confusing effects of the past 20 years. Infinite sustain and high sensitivity are waiting for you!
    It's what the brochure says.
    In reality, it takes a little time to adapt and a little practice.
    It's nice to use occasionally or "psyche" just his compositions but the price is exorbitant for I find a little piece of plastic so fragile. It's been two times that I reaffixable mine.
    Basically: it's two plastic balls (when we could think otherwise). He should have quit doing steel to increase its weight.

    Ah the famous Ebow. I’ve seen quite a few players with this and seen them doing interesting things with it. It’s basically a hand held sustainer. It’s got two modes now as well on this plus model, that allows you to just sustain the harmonic note which is also quite cool. I personally haven’t found a use for the ebow myself yet other than copy somebody else or some other U2 songs I’ve heard. But the usage and concept is quite simple. If one wants to sustain a note for a long period of time, use the Ebow. That’s the main and only purpose of this device. How often would one use it versus another effect, say, distortion? VERY sparingly or rarely obviously.

VERY sparingly or rarely obviously.

    The sound itself is the original guitar’s signal so there is nothing like true bypass whatever etc to be counted into this review. For beginners you may have trouble getting this thing to work properly it does work easier and better on electric guitar because of the magnets of the pickups, but that doesn’t mean you can’t use it on acoustics as I’ve heard and seen it being used on acoustics quite often. Of course it’s a magnetic-type of effect and that’s why it’s way easier to use on electrics. Also if you have distortion on you can get a very nice searing sustaining note, sounds great to boot depending on the context of the song I’d say!

    Overall, the Ebow is a very cool tool to get some atmospheric-type sounds and contexts to add texture to your song. If you have one it’s worth using every so often, if you don’t have one, it’s worth trying out and borrowing it from your friend and never giving it back. Give it a try if you get the chance to but I wouldn’t go out of my way to get one either!

    Such an innovative product.

    Features:
    Small plastic housing
    9v powered
    On/off switch
    Harmonic/regular mode switch

    This unit is INCREDIBLE. It makes your guitar string sustain forever! Well, as long as the battery lasts. It will even cause an acoustic guitar, or bass guitar's strings to vibrate indefinitely. The operation is very simple - hold the EBow directly over the string that is intended to vibrate, switch it on, and hold your breath! Actually, don't hold your breath - this unit can keep the sustain happening much longer than you can hold your breath! You'd pass out from oxygen deprivation before this baby quit working!

The operation is very simple - hold the EBow directly over the string that is intended to vibrate, switch it on, and hold your breath! Actually, don't hold your breath - this unit can keep the sustain happening much longer than you can hold your breath! You'd pass out from oxygen deprivation before this baby quit working! This is a pre-cursor to cool innovations like the Fernandez Sustainer pickup, and the Moog Guitar, both instruments that allow infinite sustain on a physical guitar string.

    The effects one can achieve using one of these little guys are incredible! It can make an electric or acoustic or bass sound like a cello, violin, synthesizer, horns, flutes...it is a world-class box built on a great idea. The harmonic modes are especially cool, and with a little practice, one can develop a technique to switch back and forth between the regular mode and harmonic mode while simultaneously holding a sustaining note. Adding ambient sounds like reverb or delay can definitely add to the effect's effectiveness.

    The only "downside" I can see at all is that multiple strings cannot be sustained, but I'm not sure how physically and practically/financially possible that idea would be for the designers of the EBow to integrate. I guess another minor gripe is that this is a tad cumbersome for the hand - it would be neat to see a unit that sustains like this, but could also allow the player to continue to hold and use a pick at the same time.

    All in all, this is an excellent product, rife with inspiration, and I'd recommend it to any forward-thinking metal-stringed instrument musician. The hours you'd spend creating new sonic textures and soaring solos will definitely make it worth the hundred dollar price tag.

    MODEL This is the only available dsormais, the other as deprecated.
    What changes is an deuxime vibration mode, richer in harmonics but still sharp and trs. For those who do not know, it's electro-magntique device that moves when the cord is over. What epremet have endless sustain, to simulate a bow (o the name), and tons of ways. It works on acoustic, electric, or bass (all string instruments mtalliques quite fine, actually). Note qu'tant made for the guitar, it's pretty hard to play something else, even if it is feasible with Entran.

    I use it for 3-4 years and I must say that it''s a great effect
    the bow has 2 modes INTERESTED enough, one of just playing the rle sustainer, the sustainer of other harmonics
    MODEL hh is the only of its kind exist, and in the words prcdemment my sidekick, long live the monopoly, because actually, 120 is expensive trs pay for a magnet and battery
    erf, nevertheless, the effect is INTERESTED and if you want to explore soundscapes just DIFFERENT, may be INTERESTED
    I once heard a guy who had just recorded a CD with an Ebow
    trs is INTERESTED
    Finally, I do not regret my choice, but must still have a useful tural buy it, given its price ....

    Pay 135. Yes it's expensive for a piece of plastoc ended badly. Yes, it's a mess in the beginners out anything decent. The packaging is fun, especially the badge. Examples of the tape are distracting trs.

    But ...

    This thing has changed my life.

    Provided information rgler and its volume and galistion, we can produce things that provide endless thrills. The harmonic mode provides a range of sensations ACCS particulires trs. Mutltifrquentielles caresses, sounds fivreux, landslides thrs ...

    The E + bow is the new version of the old E bow (bow electronic) which shall adopt production was in 1999. For those who do not know this device cr magntique field over the rope that will vibrate Crant an effect violoning with endless sustain .. yay.

    Its functionality is simple: A 3-position switch Ebow / off / Ebow-harmonic. As against its use is somewhat Drout to departure. But then it lets you do a lot of sounds when you get enough INTERESTED well use it.

    Most is you can do a mulititudes sound depending on how it is used. Everything explained in the instructions are in English of course (but you still work the same bte to get there). This is an original accessory.

    I use it since 2004 and I am glad plutt.

    I would do this choice to the extent I use it fairly regularly. However, it should perhaps not be for everyone. Let me explain, it is a device designed to do a lot of effects like violoning and its use as I said above is not really empty ds beginners. Clearly it is impossible to re-create what the guy on the tape provided unless you really work this thing and the dlaisser mdiator.

    So if that's what kind of effects you want to incorporate your game, or you want to drop the mdiator, I'd say it's a good investment. on the other hand, if an accessory you just want to try because, well, you never heard the sound of something or want to toy once or twice, take it to a friend. Note that you can activate only one rope once.

    A tip before you buy, see what has given the seller. I would put even when a note ..

    I have this thing for about 10 months. There are two positions of switch diffrent, with sounds DIFFERENT trs. I think it's a fact trs expensive for what it is. An ordinary plastic box over evil. As against the sound is unique, but remember this does not remain usable on any styles nor all your songs, so unless you have a use SPECIFICATIONS I do not recommend this because if c'tait again I do not buy it

    I use this for 6 months, and I do not regret my investment, especially since I bought the net, suddenly, it is much cheaper (well, approximately 100 euros all of the same , it's expensive for what some will say, but it is the lot of many other effects) if you buy in stores.

    I think the effect using simple (for the use of mine, I do not play prtends egg type stuff on the tape book with the toy), it suffices to apply the selected string (for cons, you can not use it on several strings simultaneously), in front of the microphone, and action magntique, dcolle your sound, producing an endless sustain.

    I am using only one of two modes, a "harmonic" for once making a sound too loud, enough to explode the ears.

    This kind of effect corresponds well my style and what I want (alternative use of the guitar) I do not regret my investment. In addition, it is much more use than vritable archer ais (what I did to beginners), with breathtaking sonic possibilities. Gnial, even if it is true it does not apply any style. you have to buy, not to try, but becaufe spcial looking for something and especially for a style prcis. Do not buy a head shot then.

    J'ulilise the Ebow Plus recently. I had used several times before acquiring one but I'm really surprised at how my guitar sounded Ebow. Jackson really love the pickups!
    In fact it sounds really intense contrary to popular belief. First, use low volume.

    I have yet to address to produce the staccato as they heard the demo on the CD but it's really the instrument that I had connected to my game

    I especially like producing things like that can do Terje Rypdal, especially with John Surman Nordic Quartet. I like the melodies of this kind and with a little effect (a delay, reverb) are produced wonderful things. I love this type of use in James Plotkin.
