The BowJo is a combining three coursed monochords, that are driven by magnetic fields produced by ebows. The position of the ebows can be manipulated along the string, as well as the distance can be adjusted. In this way this instrument is allowing a rich spectrum of soundfields, colors and timbres.
The name BowJo is derived from our first experiments with ebows and banjo, thus BowJo.
This instrument got replaced by the BowJo B2
