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

I've been using my e-bow for a couple of months now for some Radiohead songs we've been playing around with. It does take a little bit of practice to get the position right but it comes with a manual that gives you suggestions on how to use it and how to get different sounds from it. I would suggest using a compressor or volume pedal to help control the volume. Sometimes, especially when new to it, the volume will jump or you'll get some squeaky sounds and a compressor or volume pedal with help control that. Overall I'm super happy with it and I have a lot of cool ideas how I can use this for future songs, you just have to use your imagination. :)

I am a master of the ebow! The guy who said you don't want it to hit the strings does not realize what the ebow can do. Hitting the strings with it produces the 'rich harmonics'. Or try wiggling it on the string, crazy! Tap the notes, throw in a string touch and wiggle here and there while following a rhythm and you sound like the Second Coming of Jimi, and all without any distortion effects! Anyway if you actually want it to sound like a violin you have to reverse the waveform; the ebow produces bowed sounds in reverse.

I have had the Ebow for years now but if I had the money, I'd install the Fernandes Sustainer in my guitar to free up my picking hand as it holds the Ebow when using it. The FS allows for more freedom. The neat thing with the Ebow is the second version has an octave setting as on option over the standard setting. In standard the thing vibrates the string without picking. It takes practice to control unwanted string noises, changing to adjacent strings and keeping the volume consistent as wound strings sound louder. You also have to avoid touching the string as it causes the note to fizzle out as it is in cobtact with the unit.Its meant to sound like a violin, well,sort of. The octave up setting creates the standard note plus another note an octave up. This is where the effect truly shines. The Edge of U2 used one in the song With Or Without You. I always wondered how those notes faded in and out without the sound if oicking the notes.

Versatile little device. Bit of a learning curve. Seems a little delicate, especially the switch. Can produce some amazing sounds. Great instruction manual.

Quantity Available: 1
Condition: Used

Protect your investment with the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty.

Warranty can be a very important factor when making a buying decision. Because repairs can be very expensive in terms of parts and labour costs, manufacturers usually only provide one year limited warranties that generally only cover items that malfunction due to a manufacturer’s defect. With an important purchase such as a musical
instrument or piece of studio gear, however, many people want to have the peace of mind in knowing that their investment will be protected should the product no longer be performing at 100%.

Because of this, Long & McQuade provides our customers with a FREE one-year Performance Warranty on most of our products. The Long & McQuade Performance Warranty supplements the manufacturer’s warranty to ensure that our customers receive complete “no hassle” warranty coverage within their first year.

How does the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty differ from most manufacturers' warranties?

Performance Guarantee - normal wear and tear is covered, so your product will be performing as well as the day you purchased it for the entire duration of the coverage.

Product Replacement - if your product cannot be fixed or costs too much to fix, we will replace it with the equivalent model for no additional charge. If this is not possible, a full refund will be provided.

No Lemon Policy - your product will be replaced should the same problem occur multiple times.

Convenient - easy drop off and pick up of the product at any Long & McQuade location.

Guitar Setup - Guitars purchased at Long & McQuade come with 1 free setup, to be redeemed within 1 year for new guitars and 90 days for used guitars.

Loaners Available - a loaner product may be given while the product is being repaired.

Power Surge Protection - your product is covered even if damaged from a power surge.

Accessory Coverage - any peripheral devices or accessories that come with your product (i.e. foot pedal, case) are also covered.

Commercial Use Coverage - music and recording professionals who purchase gear for “heavy-use” commercial purposes will still be covered.
 

Long & McQuade reserves the right to restrict the purchase of additional years of Performance Warranty.Used products come with a 3-month Long & McQuade Performance Warranty. Some products (i.e. computers, software, cymbals and other items) are covered only by the manufacturer‘s warranty. Consumables (i.e. strings, reeds, woodwind pads, drum sticks, batteries, tubes, cross faders) are excluded as they are designed to be replaced. Accidental or cosmetic damage is not covered. Speakers damaged by overpowering are generally not covered. Our coverage does not provide compensation for loss of use. As of June 2018 the Performance Warranty is no longer transferable. The warranty is only valid in Canada.

-----

Purchasing additional years of coverage

If you are interested in receiving this coverage for longer than one year, you have the option of purchasing additional years of the Performance Warranty. The pricing is as follows:

NEW products: 4% of selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year.

USED products: 4% of selling price to increase the warranty from 3 months to 1 year. 4% for each additional year. Pricing for used electronic products is 4% of the original new selling price.

GUITARS: 4% of selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year. $45 maximum. An additional free setup is not included with additional purchased years of Performance Warranty.

BAND and ORCHESTRAL instruments: $40 up to $2,000 selling price. BRASS and STRINGS: 2% of the selling price after $2,000. WOODWINDS: 4% of the selling price after $2,000.

Some manufacturers provide warranties for longer than 1 year; however, these are usually limited warranties that do not provide the same coverage as the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty. Customers interested in more complete and convenient (but not necessarily longer) coverage are still able to purchase additional years of the Performance Warranty.
