Product Description

The EBow is a hand-held electronic bow for guitar. The 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.

The EBow Story

The Energy Bow is a totally unique guitar accessory. It's not just an effect like the many plug-in devices on the market. The EBow does its work on the string itself by producing an energy field that vibrates and sustains your guitar string (Direct String Synthesis). Infinite Sustain is just the beginning. Powered by a 9-volt battery, the EBow is held in place of your pick, giving you instant access to violin, cello, flute, and horn sounds as well as unique sounds of its own.

The EBow lets you play as fast as your left hand can scurry through a lick. Fade a string in from a motionless state for a reverse-tape effect. Run the EBow across the strings for gorgeous arpeggios. Add distortion for a screaming guitar sound. Playing the EBow directly over the pickup will increase your volume many fold and give you the crisp sound of super hot pickups. Moving away from the pickup gives you the mellow sound of a hollow body electric. The sounds you discover by experimenting with the EBow will amaze you. And like the best tools of the trade, the EBow will sound different for each musician.

How It Works

Welcome to the world of Direct String Synthesis. The principle 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 handheld synthesizer provides an amazing variety of textures and tonal slurs - virtually an instrument in itself!

Direct String Synthesis

The Heet Sound Plus EBow is a synthesizer in the palm of your hand. Complete control over attack, decay, and dynamics, as well as a whole 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.

Standing the 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.

Player's Guide

The EBow now comes with a complete Player's Guide booklet and detailed cassette 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 it's actually called just plain fun.

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (112 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. This review has been selected by our experts as particularly helpful. "A revolutionary inovation"
Sound: the ebow is unreal, natural... oxymoron??? lol he he... did I mention it sounds good and evil. In other words the sound is very expressive. If you suck, it will suck! If you're good it will sound good! The ebow definately has its place though. Although I can't really say the ebow "makes" a sound. When I turn it on away from the guitar it's silent. The ebow is a tool like a pick... and picks are pretty silent too, duh! I like to use delay with the ebow (smashing pumpkins, radio head, the autumns). If you're familiar with getting a good tone you can use the ebow to sound the way you want... you're style! I very wide variety of sounds in an intuitive interface. You as a "guitarist/musician" can't ask for more than that. So... to all the dumb-asses who think this product sucks... You guys can remain in guitarhell for as long as you want! Thanks. Feature: the off mode is cool. I like batteries that are not dead. oh yeah, and the harmonic mode is cool too. I wish there was a way to disassemble the ebow to be able to fix or modify it (you know like... replacing the led or any other component if it should go). It's next to impossible to disassemble without breaking it. Quality: the plasic case is durable to a point. So be careful. Don't use it as a door stop, don't drop it from more than a height of est. 6 ft., don't run over it with your car, put it in a safe spot. Value: personally, I don't think you can put a price on a great idea. But I paid the price for the labor and materials. Someday I would like to build my own innovative version of this fine tool. Manufacturer Support: I've heard that they are very excellent with customer relations. The Wow Factor: cool blue L.e.d. would love to replace it with a superbrite Overall: i see myself and other players using this product for many years to come.
