The eBow (energy bow) is a hand held string resonator, that uses an electromagnetic field to produce a clean bow sound. The device is held over the string being played, the eBow’s magnetic begins to vibrate the string.
Mandolin’s, like other plucked stringed instruments, typically have a short attack and a short sustain. The result of eBowing a mandolin is a very slow attack followed by an infinite sustain. The eBow is therefore a powerful tool in unleashing a new sound from this classic instrument.
Also included is an elbowed acoustic guitar sample library, that has a similar yet distinct sound to it.
