i want something that will help out the sustain on my guitar. i understand there are a lot of compression/sustain pedals but i always thought compression was a bit of a wank so i just wondered if there's some kinda semi-decent simple sustain pedal out there?
cheers

Big Muffs give you some good sustain, but, of course, theyre more used for their fuzz. There is this little thing i saw a while back called a Fat Finger sustainer. You stick it on your headstock, and it gives your guitar some more sustain. Altho idk if they still make em.

I normally ran my guitar through my Boss DS-1 and then into my Holy Stain and it sounded pretty good with nice sustain. However, when I added the FET preamp in my Baggs Para D.I. before the Boss, the gain boost I get from the Para D.I. put my sustain through the roof! A stronger pickup signal will help increase sustain.

Seymour Duncan makes a pickup signal booster that ought to be quite good at achieving the same end result. The MXR Boost that RobChappers mentions in some of his videos is another great choice. The Para D.I. is geared toward acoustic instrument pickups but also works well with electric guitars and basses.
