i m more interested in sustain then compression. i like my tone, it just lasts about 6 seconds.

I tried the Boss CS-3, and wasn't impressed with it. I'm sure we could suggest the world of compressor pedals, but if we don't know the price range, then it may not help.

compressors bring all the dynamics of the guitar to the same level by how much you've set your knobs to...
more noticeable in the higher frequencies...
you'll get a bit more sustain, and palm mutes will sound tighter...
also, playing lightly and playing heavily will produce very similar sounds...

uhh... seems like the real question is what guitar are you using? and are you sure its not something you are doing wrong, technique-wise?
I like analogue Solid State amps that make no effort to be "tube-like", and I'm proud of it...

...A little too proud, to be honest.
