I've been playing for about three years, but sadly have focused solely on playing. I would like to get some information on the following topics if anyone has any tidbits of knowledge to impart, please:

-What are pre-amps?

-Compression Pedals?

-Sustain Pedals?

-Noise Gates?

-Supressors?

This is a pretty big list, but if anyone has anything to say about them, I would greatly appreciate it.

Thanks in advance.

-What are pre-amps?
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Preamp
In guitar amps, you normally can't see the separate pre and power amp, as they're all encased in one unit.

-Compression Pedals?
Evens playing dynamics.

-Sustain Pedals?
Make your notes last longer.

-Noise Gates?
Eradicates buzz and hum when not playing

-Supressors?
Same as above normally.
