    well this is one thing that i have never seen an indian guitarist use - its pretty cool though - id seen one on the internet

    please post info on how they work, who uses them (famous and infamous guitarists) and what exactly theyre used for - all i know is they can makes some really cool sounds and u dont get the sound of a pick playing because ur playing legato while holding the ebow over ur strings....

    Well what it does is vibrate the string infinitely so you get endless sustain, it also has to different modes, one is a normal sustained sounds, the other is more "harmonic" and feedbacks easily. It uses a 9v battery just like the ones in the pedals and its pretty easy to use.

    Ed from radiohead is the only guy i know that uses it, listen to "My iron lung" and you'll get the picture of hows its used.

    In my opinion a real bow is more fun :p:
