I just bought the Boss compression sustainer, Im not so happy with it. I would have thought that it wouldsustain the note for a very long time... a minute? instead.. its more like 10 seconds. do you guys know another sustainer that could give me a long sustain effect

what guitar and amp do you have?

1 minute??? When would you ever need that much sustain??

10 seconds is ample for me.
My Gear :

Guitar:
Squier '51 (Dimarzio PAF Pro) (10-52s)
Roland Cube 15
Behringer X-V-Amp
Digitech Bad Monkey
BOSS DS-1 (modded)

Bass:
Yamaha RBX270 (55-110s)
Behringer BXL900
EHX Bass Balls Pedal
EHX Big Muff Pi Pedal

I need it for the music I play, I use it as a backround effect, and it needs to hold out for a long time, but with this pedal its impossible

Get a Fernandes Sustainer or a Sustainiac or an Ebow.

The guitar alone should get you somewhere up near the 10 second. Mine sustains for a while. You will have to either play with the pedal or invest more money in ^^^. I think with the Fernandes Sustainer you have to replace the neck pickup though.
#8
Yeah, I suggest an Ebow
Tone is all ...... well probably 75%, in your fingers.
The rest depends on your wallet's thickness !!

Keep the faith, baby!!

I third the eBow. If you're playing the kind of music that requires minute-long sustain, you won't care about the main drawback- namely, that it takes the place of your pick...
#10
i fourth the Ebow plus there just cool lol.

or look into rack compressors thats probably the only way

ooh ooh ooh!

New idea!

The Line6 Dr. Distorto has a "feedbacker" effect that can give you unlimited sustain (allegedly)

But I haven't tried it, so I don't know how true this is.

If it would suit the music that you play and you could turn the gain up a bit and so long as you play at a reasonable volume you should be able to sustain the note by facing the amp and using the feedback caused by that.
