Joyo have offered their own spin on the classic EBow with the JGE-01 Infinite Sustainer, aiming to provide players with a more budget friendly variant of the classic soundscaping tool.
Following the introduction of TC Electronic's own take on the handheld sustainer device with the Aeon, Joyo aim to replicate the lush, violin-like textures created by the original unit with the JGE-01.
Just like the original. the JGE-01 features two distinctive modes, Normal and Overtone. Normal mode, as the name would suggest, creates a magnetic loop to make your string vibrate endlessly, making an awesome sounding sustained sound favoured by Radiohead, Smashing Pumpkins and more. Overtone mode replicates this behaviour and adds a harmonic to thicken up your sound.
The Joyo JGE-01 also uses a blue LED to indicate that it's on and help you navigate the unit over your string of choice, and runs on a single 9v battery for portability and convenience. Personally, the EBow is one of my favourite guitar effects, and if the JGE-01 is priced similarly to other Joyo products, it's definitely worth checking out.
