It's possible, but with the long battery life I get, I'd hate to have a 
dedicated cable/pwr supply required to activate it. Relax and use a

You can do either.

It's gain is adjustable, as well as the pickup height, so it's pretty easy 
to dial it. You can get it to do the e-bow howl pretty well, but it's 
maybe not quite as intense as when you're really right over a pickup AND 
pushing it as close as it will go without stopping string vibration. You 
COULD use max gain and have the pickup way close, but I find myself liking 
a more moderate setting.
