E-Bow E-Bow Plus

Effects for Guitar

Despite its frequent use in classics of rock and pop history, the E-Bow finds itself today as an outsider amongst the large body of guitar effects - often heard, seldom recognized is the motto here.

At the same time, this unassuming little helper offers what many guitarists dream of: Sustain that is unlimited and with virtually no end.

Beyond that, experienced e-Bowers have begun to established themselves where they were previously unknown in guitar soundscapes. In this way we are now finding violin- and flute-like tones, synth sounds and the ghostly melodic style of guitarists such as Steve Hackett in the repertoire of the experimental electric guitarist.

  • The E-Bow generates a magnetic field, whereby the string is brought to oscillate continuously
  • Now with the additional „Harmonic" mode
  • Power supply is via a 9V battery (not included)
  • Incl. manual and bag

Exactly What You'd Expect, and then a Little More
CammojoDragon, 04.08.2017
You probably know already what to expect from an EBow, and it's exactly that; a simple tool for creating infinite, violin-like sustain on a guitar. It does that beautifully! I bought one to add drones and string-quartet-esque harmonies to my music, and in the process of doing this, I came to realise the EBow is a touch more versatile than you might expect. There's quite a few secrets to getting some really varied stuff out of it!

For one, the device has two modes; one encourages more natural sustain, simply extending the note you play, but there's another mode that encourages rich upper harmonics to come into play. Now that's where things can get REALLY crazy!

How the EBow reacts with the pickups on your guitar is also very interesting; I'm not sure what exactly sure what about the pickups that causes this variation, but I've noticed on my own SSS guitar that the sustain is very mellow and ambient with my middle pickup sat beneath it, and bring out much more of the rich overtones and feedback-like sounds over the neck PUP. This likely won't be the same for you, but my point is, experiment! It's also worth noting that you don't have to have the pickup you're using with the EBow selected for it to work; yet another piece of the puzzle to solve!

I have two very minor complaints; the first is that the EBow itself is made out of a very flimsy feeling plastic (though I'm quietly grateful for this, as it feels surprisingly weighty once you get a battery into it!). The second is more a cautionary note than a complaint, but I feel you should be aware that the EBow causes the string to vibrate really very aggressively, which will likely mean that you will find it quite a bit louder than you usually are on your current setup. Again, not exactly an issue, but if you're in a very grumpy-neighbour-intensive area, I'd lower the volume a tad!

All in all, however, the EBow has made a fine addition to my ambient arsenal; there aren't many options to get this kind of sound, and the EBow sells for loose change compared to a special pickup system, and is a bit more unique than the effects pedals that try and capture the sound. Recommended!

E-Bow plus
Jimsim, 15.04.2020
This is a simple yet unique product and there are many ways to use it. Include in the E-Bow is a manual that shows you different movement produces different type of sound. The build is light and compact, is made of plastic but does not feel cheap. It also comes with a small pouch. It uses 9v battery (not included). It only has two features - one gives you a more natural sounding sustain, the other is rich harmonic-like sounding sustain.

Ebow is said to supposedly create a violin-like sustain on guitar, it kinda does that to some extent but honestly, it is something entirely different. The string auto-vibrates constantly and that is what creates the sustain and boy, it sounds good. You can run scales on one string but there is a small learning curve because the string vibrates so much, you have to time and control your finger movements.

E-bow is so versatile and there are so many ways to experiment with it to come up with unique sustain-like sound. It does take a while to learn to control the sound, and the grip/movement/when to lift/etc. on the string is important. Point is - to experiment!

Versatile Kit
JP.DMG, 24.05.2021
I have been using this E-Bow for a few months now on electric guitar and bass and I am really surprised with its versatility. Firstly, the two settings allow for a range of uses on electric guitar. The standard resonance is great for long sustained notes, and when coupled with the right amp/pedal settings can produce really dreamy, ethereal sounds. The harmonic setting is great for producing controllable feedback sounds which are great in heavier songs. It is also really easy to control the volume of the guitar my moving the E-Bow further away from the string.

The E-Bow also works really well on bass guitar, however I find that the tone it produces sounds much more digital and lacks warmth. That being said, using bass pedals alongside the E-Bow has helped to shape the tone and I have found use for this and it works really well.

I just love it
25.02.2017
I bought the e-bow just to try it. To tell the truth I saw a few bands performing with it, and I got interested.

Since I'm using ambiances in my music, specially in my next job, it seemed to be an interesting piece of equipment to have. At the moment I'm using Ableton, which is absolutely OK, but I wanted something more "human-made" if you catch my drift...

The thing is that I was absolutely impressed by the playability of the e-bow. It's really fun to play, and it has opened an unexpected new soundscape for me and my project. It works with guitars and basses. I'm already incorporating it in my music as a 'whole instrument'!!!

Another good thing is that there's a lot of tutorial, info, techniques available on youtube, etc, so it's quite easy to learn and one can start enjoying it very quickly.

Very happy with it, indeed. 100% recommend it.
