Re: Sustain

i don't know how it works, but on the Ebow note... i remember an interview
with a guitarist (i want to say adam jones from tool) who said that he
used a walkman with reverse button engaged at various (but close)
distances to the pickups on a distorted and already feeding-back guitar to
achieve similar sustain effects. something about the winding mechanism in
the tape player and the batteries?
i remember trying it, though - without the distortion (at the time) and i
think i actually got something out of it. anybody?
