    I saw a couple at Rhythm Musicals near Brigade road. I think it was in the 1k-2k range for each. Two different models though.

    Why does one need a sustain pedal?

    You need to have a good quality pickups and just stand close to the speaker/monitor.

    Sustain pedal is meant for keyboards not for guitars. You can try it for guitar too and no one would put you in jail for that. But you dont need such kind of artificial sustain. Rather get a good pickup and a good distortion. Play it loud and you have will have a great long sustain.

    ^^^ Yeah correct.

    No point wasting money like taht, When you can spend that amount in purchasing something much better like strings or you may add that money to other fund to get a better stuff than you had earlier pinned your hopes to.
    Eg pickups or pedal etc.

    hm.. i don't know... maybe it would give a cool sound.. never tried it. hey i suggest you go ahead and try it. it might just give you a really cool sound that many people don't have. the sustain given b this pedal will probably sound very different from normal sutainance

    hehe, correct.

    Most prob the d00d Micraft doesn't even know why he requires a sustainer.
    Now this is the most advanced form of GAS, aint it? (check the first post)

    OK I guess its time to tell micraft, what the real purpose of Feedback Sustainer is:
    Sustainer effect if used to sustain the note you last played.
    Suppoes I play the last note as E note on 12th fret, E string.

    Now in natural environment, where you have distorition and are standing close to the speaker. The feedbakc from the speaker will vibrate your string. That will cause prolonged sustain of the note.

    Usually the signal's feedback happens such that the sustained note is usually one or two octaves higher than the original note you played.

    Suppose you wnat the smae thing to happen in a quiter environment??
    Here comes the susatiner pedal to rescue.

    Edited: Feedback sustainer

    Using an electric effect in Acoustic Concert?

    I remember Even Kurt Cobain did for his Unpluggeed in New York concret.

    I see everyone talking about not needing sustain because that is available when you use distortion and stand near the monitor. But what about times when you don't use distrotion? I use a Boss Compression Sustainer as well as tweak the sutain on my Zoom. And I use it for both distortion and clean. Thats not a crime I hope? check www.guitargeek.com, you will see many people do use the combi..
