@marg Thanks for the report!  I'm nowhere near a store that might have an E-Bow to try so it's nice to get your take on trying it out.

I tried the e-Bow at a guitar center yesterday with a non-amp dulcimer. I'm thinking it needs to be amp so the

E-Bow reads the electric magnate field. I could hardly hear the sound. Would be nice to have a violin tune for playing some songs

If anybody gives an E-Bow a go on a non-amplified instrument, I'd be interested in hearing about what you learn.

The ebow is an interesting concept, certainly.  From doing some digging, I see that it will work, however temperamentally, on non-amplified acoustic instruments but very quietly; with sufficient experimentation to find one or more 'sweet spots' where it works best.

I feel an affinity for my dulcimers. I don’t play that well but I think we belong together.

Ever hear of an ebow, a bit more then half way through, Jerry Rockwell on the video. It's been around for years for guitars but i'm thinking of trying on a dulcimer.

What do you think?
