I borrowed a Boss CS-3 compression sustainer from my friend, trying to get like long, sustained bends and good clearity in my sound. But all that this pedal has done to my sound is making it really fuzzy and just plain bad. If I raise the sustain knob or the level knob on it, the sound becomes fuzzy. the weird thing is that the fuzz is only when I not playing a note. when a play a note it stops, and when the note dies it comes back. can you help me with this? I thought it could be my guitar, it has two emg-81 pickups, really high gain. :S

You probably need a noise gate, compressors tend to add a fair bit of noise to your signal.
Actually called Mark!

Noise gate will solve your problem. Besides your pickups have high-output, so naturally they'll be quite loud.
