This is actually a pretty cool device. I used to think that it was a rip off of the Ebow, but it is actually a far more complex piece of equipment. It produces varying levels of feedback by placing the resonator at different distances from the fretboard. Rather than the typical, Sonic Youth-esque distortion feedback, this produces rather pretty, gorgeous feedback that is quite clear and can be used to harmonically accompany even the most delicate and quiet compositions.
Using it at home is one thing, but I can imagine using it in a gig setting to be quite a bother, especially if you don't room on stage for it, or time to set it up. It requires that you run your guitar (and pedals if using them) through a box that comes with the resonator, and then run it to the resonator itself. You then must put the resonator on a stand at a level that it will be even with your fretboard. This is tricky at first but not bad once you get the hang of it. From there, simply move your guitar's neck closer and further from the neck as appropriate. Warning: Do not put the resonator over the pickups, there is potential to damage both the device and the pickup. This isn't hard to avoid, but you must know not to do it.
The sounds that come out of this thing are pretty cool, but to really get interesting, you still need a decent amount of effects. Therefore, for all that it's worth, you aren't getting a lot unless you know exactly what you're in for. If you love noise and effects, this might be worth checking out.
