How it Works
Welcome to the world of Direct String Synthesis™. The principal is simple: a focused feedback loop directed at a single string. This produces a powerful, infinite sustain, rich in harmonics for incredible guitar sounds. It's like amplifier feedback with greater control and predictability, at any volume, even through headphones. This hand-held synthesizer provides an amazing variety of textures and tonal slurs - virtually an instrument in itself!
Direct String Synthesis
A synthesizer in the palm of your hand. Complete control over attack, decay and dynamics , as well as a whole new range of tones and textures, makes the EBow one of the most expressive tools ever designed for guitar. Whether sweeping smoothly from voice to voice or jumping from sound to sound, this device is responsive and personal enough to reflect your playing style.
Test of Time
Since 1976, the EBow has been making music. Groups such as U2, Blondie, Elton John, Van Halen, Phil Collins, Queen, REO Speedwagon, David Bowie and Blue Oyster Cult, just to name a few, have thrilled their listeners with the sounds of the EBow. Buddy Emmons uses his on steel guitar. Chris Proctor EBows his acoustic guitar. Windham Hill's Michael Manring has even figured out how to use one on bass guitar! The applications for the EBow are diverse.
The Player's Guide
The EBow now comes with a complete Player's Guide booklet and detailed audio lesson by EBow virtuoso Lenny Walker. How does he get those sounds? Now, Lenny shares his secrets in this feature- packed personal EBow lesson...by the master of EBow technique.
It's been called the most revolutionary development in guitar technology since Leo Fender electrified the instrument in 1948. But we call it... just plain fun.
