The EBow is a hand-held electronic bow for guitar. This small battery-powered unit replaces the pick in the right hand letting the guitarist mimic strings, horns, and woodwinds with unbelievable sensitivity. The EBow produces a powerful infinite sustain, rich in harmonics for incredible guitar sounds. Unlike plug-in effects, the Energy Bow does its work on the string itself... Direct String Synthesis™. Infinite Sustain is just the beginning.

If you're familiar with eBows, then you know what to expect. Turns your guitar into a violin/synth type instrument. Opens a world of textural possibilities. Cool thing about the "Plus" version is the Harmonic Mode, which basically adds harmonic feedback overtones in 5ths and 3rds multiple octaves up, depending on where you're spending time on the fretboard. Just an absolutely gorgeous, unique sound. Great for building synth-like pads or just laying down wacky leads. Highly recommended-- every guitar player should have one.
