Every Guitarist Has to Have One!!Not gonna lie. The list of guitarists who use the EBow to launch into creative tonal directions would be exhausting to type out. Seriously. A quick flip through the list on the EBow website shows all your heros — from the big-time players to the indie rockers you know and love. We're talking about Adrian Belew, Bloc Party, Radiohead, Nine Inch Nails, Paul McCartney, Emmylou Harris, Steve Vai, Sigur Ros... heck, even Weird Al, and the list goes on and on for pages. Why do all of these musicians have an EBow? Because they're downright inspiring tools. You can get everything from infinite to sustain to cello-like, gut-wrenching textures, tonal slurs... intriguing fade-outs and fade-ins... all from this affordable little gadget. So, how does the EBow work?
It's not too complicated to explain. In short, the EBow vibrates your string to life, so your guitar sings expressively. Hold it over one string for infinite sustain... imitate the sounds of horns and cellos... go on and add distortion and take your solos to a new level... however you use it, creativity is around the corner. So, get ready to capture a new song. Turn your handheld recorder on. Make sure the "tape" is rolling. Really. You might as well block out a Saturday to toy around with your new EBow. It's the perfect way to make playing guitar inspiring again... and the perfect gift for the guitarist in your life. You just have to have an EBow.
