    Cool. I've always wanted to find a simple way to get those great low raspy Cello tones in a lead. Never found a pedal to do it. Hmmm, now....how to do this on an electric...?

    Ebows are a lot of fun, I am not particularly good at making violin noises with mine but it sure sounds appropriate in Magic Carpet Ride.
