yes - an ebow will work on most strings that will respond to a magnetic field (will work with steel, nickel - but not materials like nylon)

I'm excited about this, lot of possibilities in those different modes. But, does it have any lopping functions? Looking at the controls, it doesn't seem like it to me.
glad you have it pretty much sorted out.
RE: the gap... it will be shorter (as will the loop unfortunately) if you use higher speeds on your 4-track. have you given that a shot? i would up over dubbing on multiple track on my 4-track so you don't hear the tape gap as much, just a pop here and there for each track. it gives it a nice rhythm i think
please post links to some results!
Thanks for all your help, David. It's been really informative. Great job!
Ah! Thanks, David. This helps a lot.
Just to make sure I get this right, I'm going to order this switch - http://www.smallbearelec.com/Detail.bok?no=38 - for the mod, and then this switch - http://www.smallbearelec.com/Detail.bok?no=985 - for the bypass replacement.
Sorry for the repetitiousness of this convo. I literally haven't a clue what I'm doing! Thankfully, I've got a friend with experience in this area helping me out.
And yes - I did manage to salvage the set. I have a couple loopers inside of Ableton, as well; so I just swapped out the cables, plugged directly into my soundcard and did all my looping inside the laptop. Not ideal, by any stretch...but it got the job done!
just got one in the mail today. In mono it seemed OK. In stereo it's amazing. I'm still getting used to it so there may be a setting and/or use that makes mono shine too. Exciting. The Forum definitely made me feel a feeding frenzy to buy one...
I opened up the back plate of my unit the other day and tried to take a look, but the circuit board is anchored to the actual chassis of the pedal. I'm a little loathe to start taking things apart. Would you mind taking a look for me?
I had a show last night and the switch just finally died completely! Bit of a bummer as I had to scramble for a workaround halfway through the set...
Could you point out a solid footswitch to replace my buggered bypass clicker while you're at it?
On the subject of loopers, my Stereo Memory Man is having some funky issues with its bypass switch. It's unreliable at best, often taking several clicks to engage properly. It's really annoying. Has anyone else seen this issue when their SMM?
