What on earth is an EBow Snare? Using a pair of EBows (electromagnetic devices designed to sustain guitar strings), Gino is able to play melodic material using the metal snares of his snare drum. Different pitches can be played by stopping or stretching a snare strand with the fingers. The timbre is somewhat reminiscent of the Theremin, especially when a contact mic is used to amplify the snares.
