Compression + gain = T Rex sustain
The T Rex Tonebug Sustainer Guitar Effects Pedal gives you a gorgeous, natural-sounding sustain effect for soloing, long-lasting power chords or soaring feedback effects. It's a simple pedal that works by first compressing and limiting the signal from your guitar, and then applying gain to keep your tone playing.
For T-Rex, music always starts with you - the unique, individual, one-of-a-kind sound you get from your guitar, amp and effects. So they've made sure that Sustainer preserves your tone while sustaining it, without adding artificial coloring.
Right back to Hendrix and Carlos Santana, sustain has been a cornerstone of the classic rock sound, along with distortion, reverb and delays and modulation effects. The aim has always been to keep a good thing going - letting a single note, chord or even feedback tone play on, and on, and on...
Guitarists have used different methods for achieving that violin-like sustain effect - from holding their guitar up close to their amp, to using complicated neck-mounted contraptions to generate feedback along the strings.
