    I don't know if this thread should be in the "effects" forum, but does anybody here know what an e-bow does?
    I saw it at steve lawsons site.

    an ebow is an electro magnet that vibrates the string really fast. They kind of sound like your using a bow if you do it right, hence "electric bow" = "ebow". It's much harder to use on a bass than a guitar because of string mass, though I hear some people are great at it. Hope that helps. They have a website http://www.ebow.com
