"This is still one of my favourite toys ... almost 20 years later."
I have had mine for 17 years and I still love it as much as I did the day I got it. It has recently inspired me to start playing and writing again after several years of not playing much at all.
Sound
Great sounds and effects, especially with delays, flanges and envelope generators. With a heavy distortion in the harmonic mode it pulls off some really trippy overtones.
Features
It is simple in design. That is the best part. The led is nice, as it indicates that it is on. No forgetting to turn it off and no dead batteries because you didn't know it was on. I wish the LED was dual colour to tell you which mode it was in, and some type of markings to tell you which mode it was in. Some of us forget which way is which.
Ease of Use
Works with no effort. There is no "WRONG" way to use it really. Some ways work better than others, but all in all, it is mostly idiot proof. A little experimentation and technique development and the possibilities are only limited by the player.
Quality
I have had mine for over 15 years and it is still in perfect shape. It has had it's share of bumps and knocks, and it still works like it did the day I got it. It pops open easier than I would like, but it holds up well.
Value
If memory serves me correctly, when I got it, it was $69USD in 91 or 2 for 99, and you can still get them for less than $100USD. I would say that in 17 years, the price is still great, and compared to how much other gear has gone up (or that most manufacturers have moved production to Asia, and the quality has gone) it is still one hell of a great deal.
Manufacturer Support
I never needed support, but when I called for info, I remember they were very informative and helpful, and that is part of the reason I got it. I liked the person I spoke with. I requested info by mail and it was sent and received within a few days.
The Wow Factor
I already have one, but if I lost it, it got stolen or I needed to replace it, I would in a heartbeat.

i see myself and other players using this product for many years to come.
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.
Features
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.

cool blue L.e.d. would love to replace it with a superbrite

"Very Disappointed"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I tried using the Ebow for hours and could not get a descent or consistent sound out of it. I would never trust if for a live performance. Sounds like feedback at best.
Musical Background:
