The EBow StoryThe Energy Bow is a totally unique guitar accessory. It's not just an effect like the many plug-in devices on the market. The EBow does its work on the string itself by producing an energy field that vibrates and sustains your guitar string (Direct String Synthesis). Infinite Sustain is just the beginning. Powered by a 9-volt battery, the EBow is held in place of your pick, giving you instant access to violin, cello, flute, and horn sounds as well as unique sounds of its own. The EBow lets you play as fast as your left hand can scurry through a lick. Fade a string in from a motionless state for a reverse-tape effect. Run the EBow across the strings for gorgeous arpeggios. Add distortion for a screaming guitar sound. Playing the EBow directly over the pickup will increase your volume many fold and give you the crisp sound of super hot pickups. Moving away from the pickup gives you the mellow sound of a hollow body electric. The sounds you discover by experimenting with the EBow will amaze you. And like the best tools of the trade, the EBow will sound different for each musician.
How It WorksWelcome to the world of Direct String Synthesis. The principle 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 handheld synthesizer provides an amazing variety of textures and tonal slurs
- virtually an instrument in itself!
Direct String SynthesisThe Heet Sound Plus EBow is a synthesizer in the palm of your hand. Complete control over attack, decay, and dynamics, as well as a whole range of tones and textures, makes the EBow one of the most expressive tools ever designed for guitar. Whether sweeping smoothly from voice to voice or jumping from sound to sound, this device is responsive and personal enough to reflect your playing style.
Standing the Test of TimeSince 1976, the EBow has been making music. Groups such as U2, Blondie, Elton John, Van Halen, Phil Collins, Queen, REO Speedwagon, David Bowie, and Blue Oyster Cult, just to name a few, have thrilled their listeners with the sounds of the EBow. Buddy Emmons uses his on steel guitar. Chris Proctor EBows his acoustic guitar. Windham Hill's Michael Manring has even figured out how to use one on bass guitar! The applications for the EBow are diverse.
Player's GuideThe EBow now comes with a complete Player's Guide booklet and detailed cassette lesson by EBow virtuoso Lenny Walker. How does he get those sounds? Now, Lenny shares his secrets in this feature-packed personal EBow lesson...by the master of EBow technique. It's been called the most revolutionary development in guitar technology since Leo Fender electrified the instrument in 1948. But it's actually called just plain fun.

Shipment and availability information updates from our warehouse to our website almost in real time. We are highly confident of the status of each item when you view a page. However, we do not reserve inventory being viewed or even placed in shopping carts, so we cannot guarantee an item's availability until you have placed your order. In particular, if you have been in the checkout area for more than about 10 minutes, we do recommend that you refresh the page to get the most current inventory prior to checking out.
What is a valid order?
A valid order is for a valid item at a valid price, placed with a credit card with complete and verifiable address and other information. Details.
Does immediate shipment mean immediate delivery?
Once an order is shipped, our carriers (Federal Express and UPS) typically guarantee a service time for when the order will be delivered to you. Our carriers have a very good record of delivering at their promised service time. We will ship immediately, and on all items, we will refund expedited shipping charges if the carrier's service levels for your chosen shipping method are not met.
If a product is in stock, is there any reason it will not ship immediately?
Exceptions are very unusual, but here are some examples of reasons that might prevent us from shipping immediately:
- Warehouse, call center, or web operations lose power or telecom connectivity.
- Warehouse, call center, or web operations lose capability due to adverse weather (blizzard), safety threat, or other factors.
