The EBow is a hand-held electronic bow for guitar. This model is the fourth generation and is called the PlusEBow. It has an improved sweeter regular EBow sound (less mid heavy), a smoother, more controllable drive (less runaway) as well as the new harmonic mode and a cool blue LED.

"Wait, so it's a guitar effect, but it's not a pedal? And it's not some sort of black box of studio trickery? Well what is it then?"

-- A Spotify e-bow masterclass with REM and Metallica

 


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 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.

...ever thought about using a real violin bow?

e bow classic use

surely omitted from your list has to be the only true and proper use of e bow and i mean in the hands of the amazing stuart adamson sadly departed of big country fame.
he made the sounds of the celtic bagpipe and so much more from the subtle opening sounds of "chance" to the ripping strains heard on "porrah man".the best exponent of the emow ever.
as for me,well i am slowly losing the use of my right arm due to neurological illness,so as i still need/want to create music but not of the standard rawk'n'nroll variety,then it is an absolute must.it is so easy to use a child could get used to it in a matter of minutes.but its when you use it in overdubs-by using it to select say A then overdub a D then over dub a G etc etc.so as long as you have patience and lots of available tracks,which most modern software programmes have- i use sonar 8,then by slowly using the ebow on different note/strings you can build up a massive chord/choral effect that noone i know has even begun to experiment with.
so guys/gals there is your free tip of the day- run with it-before you hear it in its full glory on my next album "samphire affluence"due out in a couple of months under my bleedthefield moniker.
absolutely essential for anyone who wants to experiment and not afraid to move away from power chords or standard blues methology.
me,well lets just say as proud celt and a lithuanian father(RIP) i fell no association to folk and ethnic scales than i do to the blues-come on people we live in britain not chicago or the missi. delta-why do we even dare to play the blues ?it is an insult to the real men who lived and died playing their own music- why can we not find our own style of music that tugs on the british albion folk heart strings ?
if you want to hear a different take on electric guitar and synthesiser playing check me out.
love and peace to all.
