Re: Rép : EBow - active/passive humbuckers

I was replying to Charles comment, so wasn't guessing your meanng at all

basically there has to be *some* initial vibration for the circuit
to respond.
To hope that there is "noise" in the string usually works,
but results are much more controllable if the string is given some gentle hint that you want it to respond.

Don't know why the top string on your active p/u instrument
responds less well, but the top string usually gets
difficult above the 12th fret.
Some damping from the bridge?

Can try harmonic mode to get high notes better...
...but bet you tried that already.

I didn't mean that "tapping or doing a pull-off makes the Ebow work".
I meant more that in some tunes I have to do it that way to get the
the string up in vibration fast enough. The inherent inertia varies
from string to string.
