Yes, its not exactly like an EBow - there are controls for intensity and also fundamental vs harmonics. Listen to Whispering a Prayer by Steve Vai - he uses it a lot in that, especially at the beginning. All those lovely long notes that fade off into 5th harmonics - thats the sustainiac in harmonic mode - very beautitful for that kind of song.

And if you have floating bridge,ahhh ohmy.gif


Hey Muris. I have a floating bridge on my strat and my PRS. Why would that make the sustain less?

The bridge on a floating system like a floyd is decoupled from the body so the energy transfer is reduced Jeff - hence less sustain because some of the energy has been lost.

Cheers,
Tony

Opps sorry it was for Muris. I'll shut up unsure.gif .

You only get fish Matt if you promise not to imitate that awful twit (all fake tan and cheap gold jewelery - miouw) who does the second hand antiques/car boot programes on UK daytime TV and who always says (as he leers at the camera) "and that folks is as cheap as chips" laugh.gif !


(Jeez I must have too much time on my hands if I watch daytime tv unsure.gif .)

Cheers,
Tony

Came very very close to saying something much more descriptive than 'twit' rolleyes.gif

Deal is that sustain isn't only about pickups,it's more about wood,neck type,connection of neck and body etc. smile.gif
Tho you won't be missing anything with better pickup. wink.gif
But yeah,Danelectro makes great pedals too and Ebay is right place to look.


So true. I can't believe how good the sustain is on my Schecter C-1 Classic. In fact I have a Boss Compressor and I use it more as a volume gain than for compression.

Well guys, the Behringer arrived.....it really does and good amounts of sustain! The only thing is its a little noisy when you turn the sustain nob upwards - however for £15 this is a great value pedal!!

Hi Muris smile.gif
thanks for your reply. The problem im having is when im tapping and hold long notes they just seem to faid out to quickly. Is the Boss likely to help me with this?
thanks smile.gif


Yeah, is a good pedal. I use it too and it works very good, I put it on the floor (near my whammy pedal biggrin.gif) and I activate it when I need more sustain than usual tongue.gif

On the ebow theme - also check out the "sustainiac" - its basically a pickup with a built in e-bow, looks really cool. I promised myself one when I build a custom guitar - Steve Vai has one in one of his Jems (Flo).


I'm pretty sure Flo has a Fernandes sustainer.

http://www.fernandesguitars.com/sustainer.html

“The Fernandes Sustainer gives my guitar playing a whole new dimension. As a matter of fact it’s sort of a dimension of slow motion. I actually can play long slow notes now.”

Steve Vai

There's also a video that I think Fernandes put up of Vai fiddling around with what looks like Flo.

I think you're right, my bad. I got confused as I looked at the Sustainer first then decided I liked the Sustainiac better.

Just good timing. I've been looking at sustainers the last week or so. I'm so not ready to deal with anything like that yet in my playing yet.

I'm looking more for projects...picking up a couple cheap pawn shop guitars and modding them. Maybe a homebrew stompbox or two. I'd like to build a tube amp, but I'd end up spending more on the equipment I'd need than I'd save building my own.

Yeah, I figured that if I ever built or had built a custom guitar I'd have a sustainiac in there ...
