what Demonikk said. compressors are super easy to use. just dial it in and stomp on it when you want to use it.

Compressor?

I don't know what a compactor is.

A compactor is what they threw Metallica and their instruments in, then recorded the noise produced and called it St Anger
ohai little sig.

kindaa gonna jack this thread but what does a compressor / sustainer do ?

A compressor 'averages out' the volume level of the guitar signal so the sounds is a lot more consistant and tighter
A sustainer increases the sustain time of the signal
ohai little sig.

Any particular reason you want one...I'm just assuming that if you don't even know what it's called then you probably don't really know what it does either.
Actually called Mark!
