The Gizmotron Rocks!


This was a little tricky to install and have the wheels properly align over the strings, but once you get it, the gizmotron is amazing. The sounds I'm getting out of my Stratocaster are beyond my wildest dreams. A fantastic gadget for people who want to get more out of their guitars. With the right effects channeled in, I can make my guitar sound like a moog with this beast. There's also a slight learning curve to it, but play around with it for a week and you get the hang of it really quickly.



Unlike anything I've ever really heard.


First off, this thing sounds really cool. Its like a cross between a traditional eBow sound and a Mellotron or something. It's kind of hard to get used to playing at first, but it's actually pretty intuitive. That being said, setting it up is a real pain. Take your time, watch the YouTube video and be patient. Also, you pretty much have to dedicate a guitar to this thing. I tried putting it on my main guitar but then playing the guitar with the Gizmotron off was unbearably uncomfortable. The brackets ended up being right where my hand rests while playing and made it too uncomfortable to keep on that guitar. So I put it on a different guitar but then the adhesive that comes with it didn't stick to the finish too well and it fell of while I was playing. I love the sound of this thing so I am going to keep it but I may have to figure out a different mounting technique.
