    Fripp's lead in Heroes was NOT ebow. It was Fripp's expert manipulation of feedback as confirmed by Tony Visconti.

      i thought it was used really well on that one song on master of puppets. You know the one where they used delay with it.....


      i just cant remember the name of the song


      You maybe refering to the intro of Blackened on AJFA album. It's has recorded with ebow (i think) and then they reverse it.

      EDIT : nop it isnt! it has pick attack

        Well, EBows have been around since '76 or earlier.


        Really? Wow I got pwned.

          from the Ebow web site:

          1967 concept inspired by Iron Butterfly and Jimi YouKnow
          1969 working model
          1974 hand-held version
          1976 introduced at NAMM in Chicago
          1983 new model introduced
          1989 licked-circuit model
          1996 ebow web page makes a splash
          1998 PlusEBow model introduced
          Mittenfields "The Fresh Sum" EP now on iTunes or Bandcamp

          "Mittenfields debut the past as something new... If you took Frightened Rabbit and told vocalist Scott Hutchison to make a song for Arcade Fire's Funeral using Cursive as a backing band, maybe then you would end up with 'My Mind Is an Avalanche.'" (9 out of 10) -Heave Media

            Phil Keaggy makes the best use of it that I've ever seen. Check out the second half of this...

            There was an even better vid of him in the studio doing CRAZY stuff with it, but it's gone from youtube.

              Hey, check out my version of I Am The Walrus where I do all the string parts on an Ebow.

              I'm not claiming "best use of ebow in a song" but I am claiming it's MY best use of ebow in a song that I recorded.

                  Nik is correct. There is no Ebow on "Heroes." That's Robert Fripp, his late '50s Les Paul Custom, whatever fuzz he was using that week (or perhaps Eno's Synthi AKS) and loud volume. Just your typical Fripp heavy sustain playing.

                  "Since You're Gone" by the Cars isn't Ebow either. Elliot Easton didn't have an Ebow when the song was recorded, so instead he taped all the strings but the one he wanted to play up on his guitar and then went into a room with a heavily cranked Marshall and got that tone by feedback.


                  Yup. Mick Ronson DID use an ebow when they played 'Heroes' with Bowie at the 1992 Freddy Mercury Tribue concert, though. That was the first time I ever saw one and had to figure out what it was.

                  You can hear Fripp pick ever-so-lightly on some notes on the studio 'Heroes' recording. That was how he sounded for years before the 'Discipline' changeup.

                        In my opinion,it has to be "Love Hurts" by Nazareth.

                              Any of Bill Nelson's songs from the 80's. He's the Godfather of the Ebow. Any other Ebow users look like amateurs next to him.
