Phil Keaggy Ebows

GLW just reminded me of the Ebow. I know I don't have to convert him, but for all the non-believers, here's Phil Keaggy with one.

Just give it a bit of time to get going. About 1.20 in.

Man, I've wanted one of those for years, good to see someone getting different effects out of it.

Odd...when I wasn't logged in, the YouTube vid appeard, but now all I see here is the HTML. Is that supposed to happen?

At any rate, I've heard others use the eBow on studio recordings, but Phil is the only one I've ever seen use it in concert, or on an acoustic guitar. Are these things rare, or do I just go to the wrong concerts?

Using the EBow live can be a bit hit and miss. The output is so high that sometimes you end up drowning out everyone else.

I saw Bill Nelson in concert a couple of years ago (THE EBow king!) but despite using an impressive 10 guitars on stage that night, he didn't play any EBow at all.

Daniel Ash uses one occasionally, although with Bauhaus on their recent tours he was using the sustainer of his Fernandes guitar (which doesn't have quite the same sound, but you can use it to get a similar effect).
