I bought a violin bow. Less wear on strings (on Stick)

I tried the Ebow on my PASV4 and could not get good sounds. Does anyone know the secret?

Works OK here with ACTV-2. Just it's a bit fiddly to use because of the different string spacing. So, the grooves under eBow that are supposed to guide it aren't really helping.

I also use a cello bow occasionally. Different sounds, both cool at appropriate places.

Another thing you can do with old strings: tie them up to a camera tripod and leave the nut part dangling for the cat. Hours of fun for Geo the Cat. And me, free to do something else, or just watch him go at it.



But I liked the Blue Man video. What are those markings on his Stick?
