But I have explored it with volume knob/pedal reducing gain, and it sounds cool in a certain way - but very hard to control since the level is so high and the margins for control so small.
Volume depends on the position of the ebow relative to the p/u. too loud>>>>move it away, either along the string, or lift it away. Sure, if you don't control it well it gets far to loud compared to the regular string sound. It's not an easy technique, ...but I like it because I get an infinite sustained tone with very sensitive control of it's dynamic. ( not otherwise possible on guitar) andy
