The E-Bow Plus is used rather than a pick to create awesome synth fx. A small electrical charge sets up an energy field, vibrating the string giving you in limited sustain until you pull it away. This tiny, 9V-battery-powered Ebow Plus is a great replacement to a pick, which lets you mimic strings and synths and enable you to create outlandish sounds beyond all instruments.
The E-Bow Plus lets you play as fast as left hand can manage. Fade a string in from a motionless state for a reverse-tape effect. Run the E-Bow across the strings for gorgeous arpeggios. Add distortion for a screaming guitar sound. Playing the E-Bow Plus directly over the pickup will increase your volume and give you the crisp sound of super hot pick ups. Moving away from the pick up gives you the mellow sound of a hollow body electric. The sounds you discover by experimenting with the E-Bow will amaze you. The E-Bow will also sound different for each musician.
